Chennaiyin FC will host Kerala Blasters FC in a crucial match of Indian Football League on Friday. The match will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai. The game will kick off at 7:30 PM IST. Both teams are having a dismal season so far and therefore, they will look to turn the tables quickly.
Chennaiyin FC haven’t had a season to remember so far as the team is flagging at the ninth position in the points table with just one win. The home team will be hoping for a turn around under their new manager Owen Coyle. Chennaiyin FC have been struggling with their defence and the club will look to improve on that department.
They have also spilled a lot of opportunities and need to find more sources for goals. Under Owen Coyle, the team will look to get back to their winning ways.
It has been a tough season for Kerala Blasters as well. They are now on a seven-game winless run and are still searching for their second win in this season. They are currently sitting at eighth position with one win and 4 draws. Raphael Messi Bouli has been impressive for Chennai in the last few matches. Mario Arques and Jeakson Singh will have an important role to play in the midfield.
