NEUFC vs KBFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
NorthEast United will be locking horns against Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League match at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, in Guwahati, Assam, tomorrow on Friday evening (IST).
NorthEast United have had a good campaign so far despite succumbing to first ever loss of this season just before the International break. The size of improvement is quite evident from their points tally after six games, which is 11, same they acquired in the whole of last season.
The Highlanders are sitting at 5th in the table coming into this match, but have played at least a game less than the teams surrounding them. Also, a win in this game will take them to 3rd in the table, and within two points of leaders Goa.
The hosts should aim for a routine win in this match. They are one of the most in-form teams in ISL heading into this game, having won three times in the last four games prior to last defeat. Manager Eelco Schattorie has had the luxury of calling on players such as Bartholomew Ogeche and Federico Gallego, easily the standout performers for John Abraham’s team this season.
Kerala Blasters, on the other hand, have won just one game all season, a magnificent 0-2 win over ATK in the opening match. David James’ team then followed that result with four consecutive score draws, while the two successive home defeats before the international break left the team closer to the bottom three.
Though it’s quite evident that the Yellow Army is a long way away from meeting their minimum target of finishing in the top-4, they are still unbeaten away from home and have accumulated five points on the road against 2 at home.
So NorthEast United should be wary of the visitors and can’t be considered as out-and-out favourites based on the form.

NEUFC vs KBFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
In the first team, we have gone for an attacking 3-4-3 formation with the NorthEast players making up the maximum 7 players in this team.
The reason being the form of the Highlanders, and the midfield is certainly we expect them to dominate.
At the front, Ogneche is our captain, and Slavisla Stojanovic being our vice-captain.
In this team, we have dropped an attacker for a more solid 3-5-2 formation.
Jhingan and Lakic-Pekic come from Kerala as they have been quite solid for the Yellow Army this season.
While Ogbeche remains our captain, and his team-mate Borges will be playing as a secoind fiddle in the team.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The form indicates a home win in this match. But we have seen how Kerala have gone about their business in the away matches. The visitors are also a threat going forward and have scored in all the matches this season.
The Highlanders, however, possess a defence which is bettered only by Bengaluru FC in ISL this season and we think they should have enough in their tank to win this game.
