Chennaiyin are looking to produce a repeat of the recent ISL meeting with Punjab which ended in a big disappointment for today’s hosts, as they were thrashed 5-1. Incredibly, Chennaiyin have struggled since that victory over Punjab and they just recovered with a crucial victory over Bengaluru in the last match.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

There have been just two defeats for Punjab in the last five

Punjab looked quite solid in the first half against Kerala Blasters

Reasons to be fearful

Chennaiyin thrashed Punjab just a few weeks ago

Apart from the game against Bengaluru, Punjab have largely struggled for goals in recent weeks

Punjab have reasons to be quite pleased about the recent game against Kerala Blasters even if the match finished as a defeat. This was the first loss for Punjab in four matches and the team did come up with a strong performance in the first half. Staikos Vergetis is likely to demand the same level of performance from his players throughout the 90 minutes if the club are to get the first win of the season.

Punjab have no major injury concerns leading up to this game.

Star man – Dimitrios Chatziisaias

Dimitrios Chatziisaias can be quite pleased about his overall performance in the match against Kerala Blasters. The opposition were unable to create a lot of opportunities throughout the 90 minutes and it was only through a poor defensive mistake that the opposition were allowed in front.

Chennaiyin FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Chennaiyin produced a solid performance against Bengaluru

The club thrashed Punjab only a few weeks ago

Reasons to be fearful

Chennaiyin have still only managed one clean sheet in the last six

The club still have some key injury problems

Chennaiyin were able to get a first victory in five matches and move into the top half of the table. There are plenty of positives for Owen Coyle in the win over Bengaluru. Despite missing a number of crucial players, the overall performance from Chennaiyin was excellent as they also managed the first clean sheet in five matches.

Owen Coyle comes into the game with no major injury concerns and this should mean a return to the starting line-up for several of his key players.

Star man – Jordan Murray

Jordan Murray once again proved his importance by becoming the joint top scorer in the squad after scoring from the penalty spot against Bengaluru. The Australian now has picked up three goals to move him level with Rafael Crivellaro and Connor Shields.

Punjab sit just one place above the bottom and the team can have few complaints about their season so far. They go up against a Chennaiyin team who are fresh from a big win over Bengaluru. The success has the potential to lift the morale around Chennaiyin, who had gone four games without a win. Owen Coyle was able to enjoy a spectacular performance from his team in the reverse fixture against Punjab and they have the potential to recreate a similar game this time around as well.
