India and Pakistan get set to square off today on the sunny Iberian peninsula for the 3rd place play-off at the Olympic Hockey Qualifiers. The Indians who lost their league encounter to Pakistan a week ago, will have to play their heart out to win this match. One area India has to focus on is defending penalty corners. History though will be on Pakistan's side, as the neighbours have beaten India, the last three times they met in a game for the 3rd and 4th place playoff.
