NorthEast United are hoping to avoid yet another painful match as they take on Kerala Blasters on home soil. Both these teams are coming on the back of a string of recent defeats, but there is more pressure on the hosts ahead of the match at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium. Even though NorthEast United are still in with a shout to finish in the top six, it would take a remarkable recovery to reach the play-offs.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

NorthEast United have scored in four of the last five games

Juan Pedro Benali’s team have lost only three matches at home this season

Reasons to be fearful

It has been a terrible run for NorthEast United with just one win from the last five

The team has slipped from the highs in the early part of the campaign

NorthEast United have been blown away by many opposition in recent weeks but the big loss against Mumbai City hurts the team a lot. The big loss with only three regular-season matches left is a big blow to NorthEast United and their hopes of a top six finish. NorthEast United, though, will be playing at home in two of the remaining three regular-season games. Coach Benali has no injury issues in the squad.

Star man – Tom Juric

Tom Juric remains the top scorer in the NorthEast United squad with five goals for the campaign. He has not been on the scoresheet since late February, but being a default penalty taker certainly helps his case. The suspension of Parthib Gogoi also places more importance on the Australian.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Kerala Blasters continue to be lethal in front of goal

The team has had 10 goals in the last six games

Reasons to be fearful

Kerala Blasters have been taken for a ride with 13 goals conceded in the last six games

The team has been without a victory in the last four games

Kerala Blasters might have just made it to the play-offs but they have largely been struggling over the last few weeks. The 4-2 win over Goa now seems a long way back for a team that has conceded 13 goals in the last six matches. Kerala Blasters have also shipped four goals in back-to-back home matches. At this juncture, the team would be feeling quite pleased to end the regular season with back-to-back away games.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos continues to hit the headlines unwaveringly even if his team have not been picking up positive results. The striker has now scored 13 goals from just 17 matches this season. He has been on the scoresheet three times in the last three games.

Kerala Blasters have been struggling for results even if they have been let off the hook in the final third on numerous occasions through players like Dimitrios Diamantakos. NorthEast United have a lot more reasons to go for three points in this match. They also have home advantage but a lack of momentum is evident within NorthEast United.
