DDFC vs CFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The two rock-bottom teams in the Indian Super League this season will be facing each other when Chennaiyin FC welcome Delhi Dynamos to Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, in Chennai, on Saturday evening (IST).
Chennaiyin FC have endured a nightmare campaign so far. With just one win in the first 11 matches and only five points to show for their efforts, the defence of their crown couldn’t have been more feeble.
The team looks short of the ideas in every department, there is no cohesion in the midfield and the goals are like precious and esoteric melodies with Chennaiyin players not able to hit the required cords.
John Gregory lost midfielder Dhanpal Ganesh at the start of the season. The 27-year-old Indian international was one of the standout performers in Chennai’s title-winning campaign last season. He has been a real miss and could be the reason why the team lacks quality in the middle of the park with no domestic player able to make up for the loss.
Having said that, manager John Gregory could have done better with his foreign quota of players. An extra off-shore player in the middle may have done the team a world of good.
While goals have been the problem for the defending champions, the off-colour striker Carlos Salom and Jeje Lalpekhlua have only compounded the misery for the team, with the latter drawing a blank so far this season.
Delhi Dynamos, on the other hand, have created an unwanted record this season. The team from the capital remains winless after the first 11 games, which is a new record in ISL for the winless streak from the start of the campaign.
But Delhi have played some good football this season. They have dominated games and could have easily won them, and were denied penalties at crucial points in the match.
Dynamos manager Josep Gombau has also maintained that the tally of just four points from 11 matches is not a good value for efforts made by his players this season.
With Delhi’s ambitions of making into the playoff positions already done and dusted, the team must make the most out of their remaining fixtures to make sure they don’t finish bottom of the table.

DDFC vs CFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Both the teams are struggling for form this season and you can always expect changes in the teams not showcasing enough consistency.
Jeje has struggled for form and was overlooked in the last game. Carlos Salmo is our striker while Kaludjerovic will be playing as a partner.
Augusto has been Chennai's best player so far this season, and he is our captain as well, Tebar and Chhangte are in the middle from Delhi.
We have Jeje here as we think he may be given a chance against a Delhi team struggling in every department, Salom will be his partner.
Vanmalsawma has played well in the last two games and should keep his place.
