Dream11 likely match scenario:
There's hardly any reason to back either team in this game as favourites, other than the case for Chennaiiyn as a host. But the Marina Arena team lacks goals, while the defence has hardly done anything to exude confidence before this game. Kerela, on the other hand, may seem no different, but they have looked a tad more dangerous at times than the table suggests.
We think the clean sheet for either team looks a distant possibility here, so don't choose the defensive line from one team only.
Chennaiyin FC team news: No player is on Chennaiyin FC's injury list at the moment but the availability of Indian international Jeje Lalpekhlua is still shrouded in mystery with the club failing to provide any detail. So consider him as a doubt for this game.
Dhanpal Ganesh failed to make the cut in the matchday squad in the last three matches and looks like he could miss out again here. Other than the above-mentioned duo, head coach Owen Coyle has all the players available at his disposal.
Chennaiyin FC key players:
Nerijus Valskis: 04 Goals
