NEUFC vs FCPC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
NorthEast United have an opportunity to secure a top-4 finish in their final home game of the season when they welcome FC Pune City to Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium (Sarusajai Stadium), in Guwahati, on Wednesday evening (IST).
The final home game of the season and a chance to seal a playoff berth in front of the fans, NorthEast United have all the reasons to go full throttle against FC Pune City.
Also, the Highlanders are standing on the cusp of writing a new chapter in their history as never before had they managed to go into the playoffs.
The 0-2 win in the last game against Mumbai City could be the most defining result of their season so far. To go into the home of the Islanders, one of the in-form teams, and win in a pressure cooker situation, it tells a lot about Eelco Schattorie and his men.
Mathematically, FC Pune City still have a chance to qualify for the top-4, but it’s near impossible feat, and depends on the result of the other teams as well.
But whether Stallions qualify or not, their season can’t be judged on that. The near past and the present all indicates that the team has made some giant strides in the second half of the season.

NEUFC vs FCPC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Just two wins and 8 goals from eight games, the home form has been an issue for the Highlanders all season. If the hosts fail to win their next game, the pressure will be mounting on them to win the last game, the sort of situation manager Eelco Schattorie will be aiming to avoid.
At the moment, Pune City look a completely different team, but we back the hosts to get at least a draw in this game.
