The Indians women’s hockey team will take on Argentina in a Group B match on Saturday, August 13, in their Rio 2016 Olympics campaign. After putting up a fighting show against Japan in their very first match, the road since then has been downhill for the women’s hockey team. They suffered three crushing defeats on the trot as they looked helpless on the turf.

India will have to win the final Group B encounter against the South American team to keep any chance of advancing in the final rounds. India have only scored three goals and conceded a whooping 14 for a goal difference of -11 till now. Approaching the final game, India need to beat fourth placed Argentina (with three points) and then hope Australia beat Japan (also on one point). That way, India climb to fourth with four points while Argentina finish with three and Japan with one.

In their earlier match, USA humiliated India with a scoreline of three goals to nil. The third successive loss, after the Indian team lost to Great Britain and Australia, has left the team depleted. Though Argentina are third on the standings, they have a formidable side to outsmart the out-of-form Indian team.

The match will start at 18:30 hrs IST. For live score and updates, follow Indianexpress.com. Viewers can tune into Star Sports/Star Sports HD or Hotstar app for live video streaming.
