India is aiming to reach an 8th straight final when they meet hosts, Maldives on Wednesday in their last group match.
The Blue Tigers beat Nepal 1-0 in their last match to put themselves in a comfortable space for qualification as Chhetri scored the only goal of the match.
On the other hand, Maldives won 1-0 against Sri Lanka in their last match to go top of the table.
Ashfaq scored in the 6th minute to send Maldives to top of the table with 6 points from 3 matches.
With the home support rallying on the Maldives side, this could well be an exciting clash between two quality sides.
This could be a prelude to the final where both these sides are expected to face each other once again.

We expect Maldives to clinch this due to their better form and home support.
