Chennaiyin FC looks to bag full points Against struggling NorthEast United FC

Chennaiyin FC will look to bag all three points as they meet a struggling NorthEast United FC in an Indian Super League (ISL) encounter at the Indira Gandhi Stadium here on Tuesday.(All the Latest ISL Updates) NorthEast has been lacklustre this season with nothing going right for them. Coach Cesar Farias has thrown in every possible card he can but the team seems to crumble whenever the defence is put under pressure. And with the likes of Elano Blumer in the rival squad, the franchise would keep their fingers crossed and pray. The team from the eastern part of the country has lost all its three outings so far, losing 1-3 to Kerala Blasters and FC Goa and 0-1 to FC Pune City.

On the other hand, Chennaiyin, after losing their first two encounters to Atletico de Kolkata (2-3) and Delhi Dynamos (0-1), have made a strong comeback and have beaten top sides like Goa (4-0) and Mumbai City FC (2-0). This encounter will provide them the opportunity to get to nine points and be in the top three of the eight team standings. But with crowd support in favour of NorthEast, the tie won’t be a cakewalk.

Marco Materazzi and his men will know how the vociferous supporters can spur the local players and they would have by now made plans to keep the NorthEast attackers at bay. But the likes of Sanju Pradhan, Argentine striker Nicolas Velez and Ghanaian forward Francis Dadzie will surely keep the Chennaiyin defenders busy.
