Kerala Blasters are looking to bounce back from a horrible run of results and the team will be pleased to come back to home comforts when they go up against Punjab on Monday night. Punjab have just picked up their second win of the season in a beautiful comeback against Bengaluru, but producing a second consecutive win will be a tall order for the strugglers. Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium is the location for this match at Kochi.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Kerala Blasters are unbeaten at home this season

The club continues to be very impressive in the final third

Reasons to be fearful

Three successive defeats have dented the confidence of Kerala Blasters

The defence has been quite leaky in recent matches

Kerala Blasters are coming from a three-game losing streak which is quite a drop in form compared to the standards set earlier in the campaign. However, a return to home comforts is likely to help Kerala Blasters bounce back to winning ways. After the loss to Odisha, Kerala Blasters are in danger of losing touch with the top spot. The club need to win the upcoming game to stay in touch with the likes of Odisha and Goa.

The lengthy injury list for Ivan Vukomanovic remains one of the problems. Vibin Mohanan, Adrián Luna, Freddy Lallawmawma, Kwame Peprah, Jaushua Sotirio, and Aibanbha Dohling are on the treatment table.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos continues to be a shining light for Kerala Blasters even amidst the poor form. The Greek striker is the top scorer in the squad by a significant margin after hitting eight goals for the campaign. The 30-year-old helped Kerala Blasters take the lead against Odisha in the recent match. His only goal helped Kerala Blasters beat Punjab in the reverse game.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Punjab are coming on the back of a first win in five

The team showed excellent mentality to come back from behind against Bengaluru

Reasons to be fearful

Both victories for Punjab this season have been at home

The team has struggled for great away performances

Punjab produced yet another strong performance to get the victory over Bengaluru. This will be a boost for the team that has struggled to achieve much in many of the recent matches. Coach Staikos Vergetis witnessed a goal fest from his team in the recent game, but they have generally struggled in the final third. He is also looking for his first victory against Kerala Blasters. Punjab have a fully fit squad for this upcoming game.

Star man – Luka Majcen

Luka Majcen is back among the goals after finding the back of the net against Bengaluru. The 34-year-old has taken his league tally to 4 for the campaign.

Punjab might have just picked up a brilliant comeback victory against Bengaluru but they are generally difficult to back in away matches. After failing to win any of the away games so far this season, the expectation is not great for Punjab to do well against a Kerala Blasters team who are lossless at home. Despite a poor run of form, Kerala Blasters are expected to bounce back with a victory.
