Kerala Blasters and Chennaiyin are two teams who are struggling to shake off a poor run. The former have especially been in a spell of bother with four successive losses in all competitions. Therefore, a meeting between the two teams at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai is of massive importance. Both teams cannot afford losses at this juncture. This is especially true of Chennaiyin, who have slipped to 11th in the standings. 

Chennaiyin FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Chennaiyin are unbeaten in the last two games at home

The team are coming back to home comforts after two difficult away games

Reasons to be fearful

Chennaiyin have only managed one home victory against Kerala Blasters in six

The offensive confidence is not very high for Owen Coyle’s men

Chennaiyin have every reason to be concerned about their rotten run of form that has seen them slip to the 11th place in the table. Even though the danger of going to the bottom remains farfetched with the team having an eight-point advantage over Hyderabad, the club are certainly concerned of their current form. In recent weeks, Chennaiyin have been struggling for goals with the team averaging only around a goal per game.

Star man – Jordan Murray

Jordan Murray has not scored in his last three matches for Chennaiyin. His last goal, though, came on home soil against Bengaluru. Murray came up with a brace in the thrilling draw with Kerala Blasters back in November and he can be backed to come up with a better performance in the upcoming match.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Kerala Blasters have opened the scoring in back-to-back games

The team had a decent game against Punjab before collapsing in the second half

Reasons to be fearful

Kerala Blasters continue to have several injury problems

The team has shipped five goals in the last two matches

Kerala Blasters will be kicking themselves for failing to hold on to the lead in back-to-back matches. The successive losses against Odisha and Punjab have put the team five points away from the top. After having been top only a few weeks ago, this is a major drop for Ivan Vukomanovic and his team. Vukomanovic has never suffered a defeat at the hands of Chennaiyin. However, he continues to have a lengthy injury list with Adrián Luna, Kwame Peprah, Jaushua Sotirio, Vibin Mohanan, and Aibanbha Dohling.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos has been the key source of goals for Kerala Blasters. The 30-year-old has managed eight goals and two assists from his 12 league appearances. Diamantakos was also on the scoresheet against Chennaiyin back in November after he scored a brace in the 3-3 draw.

Both these teams have been struggling to get results and they have faced a string of losses in recent matches. However, Kerala Blasters have had the performance to get them out of trouble. Chennaiyin have lacked the zing in almost every area of the pitch. Kerala Blasters have had the upper hand even in away games against Chennaiyin and they are likely to get back to winning ways.
