CFC vs KBFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The defending champions will be looking for their 2nd win in the Indian Super League (ISL) this season when they host Kerala Blasters at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, in Chennai on Thursday evening (IST).
Chennaiyin FC’s start to the new season, though it can’t be labelled as new as almost half the season is gone, can’t fall into the ‘defence of the title’ category at all. Bengaluru FC and FC Goa’s fast start to the ISL season, and Chennai’s long search for their first win of the 2018-19 season means, which came only in the 7th match, it’s a kind of submission and a brittle grip which broke off after only a few matches.
Now the soon-to-be no more ‘defending champions’ are reeling at the foot of the table, and sit a massive, or maybe unbridgeable, 10 points away from the top-4 at this moment.
David James must be looking towards the heavens for some divine answers after what happened in the last match.
Not since winning 0-2 away against the two-time ISL champions ATK, that they won in ISL this season. So Kerala Blasters headed to the highlands seeking their first win in the last six games. After soaking the pressure early in the game, the visitors took the lead through Matej Poplatnik’s 73rd-minute header, and the elusive win looked achievable as the game went into the 2nd half injury time.
But two goals after the 90th minute, Ogbeche’s penalty (93’) and Mascia’s (96’) exquisite volley robbed them off all three points.
Kerala have played 8 games this season and sit at 7th in the table with seven points, also seven points behind the top-4. However, they have played a game less than Jamshedpur who are on 4th, so this game is an opportunity to close down the gap.
The Blasters will be playing four games in less than a month. This little period could define the whole season, but the team has to stop conceding late goals which they have in quite a few matches already this season.

CFC vs KBFC Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Chennaiyin FC vs Kerala Blasters Team News:
Injured – Dhanpal Ganesh has been ruled out for the season and won’t be playing. The 27-year-old was the standout performer in Chennai’s title-winning campaign last season and it won’t be an exaggeration to say that they are missing his intelligence in the middle of the park.
Suspended – None
Questionable – None at this moment.
Note: Chennaiyin are struggling at the back and we can expect some changes from the manager, especially in the defensive department.
Key Players – Mailson Alves, Raphael Augusto
Injured – Kerala Blasters will be travelling at full strength for this match.
Suspended – None
Questionable – No player has been listed as questionable by manager James ahead of this match.
Note: Teenage goalkeeper Dheeraj could have done better with NorthEast United’s 2nd goal. But we expect him to retain his place in the starting 11.
Key Players – Poplatnic, Stojanovic
CFC vs KBFC Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –

CFC vs KBFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Had to go with the home side, as they are home and showed signs of improvement in the last few games.
Starrting with the back – Jhingan is the captain of Kerala and one of the few who have done good for the yello Army this season. While Mailson and Calderon have chipped in with the goals as well and you never know.
The mid has four players with the indispensable Augusto leading our team from the middle, and will be helped by Nelson, the dynamic Krcmarevic, and the consistent Narzary.
The attack is a mystery as Jeje doesn’t know where to send the ball these days, but we are backing him to break his duck here in this match against Kerela.
Here in this team, we are going with the away team.
Jhingan is there, but other defenders are from the home side.
Doungel, and Krcmarevic will be supported by the two outstanding midfielders in Thoi and Augusto.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
These are the two teams failing to reach their full potential so far. Chennaiyin FC are at home but are winless in front of their own fans, while Kerala’s only win game on the road this season.
We are backing the away team to get something out of this match.
