CFC Vs KBFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Winless Kerala Blasters turn to their neighbours in a bid to register their first three points of the season.
Without a win in their opening couple of matches in the Indian Super League, Kerala Blasters find themselves in a quandary. While they did manage to salvage a draw from their previous tie as they fought back to walk away with a 2-2 scoreline, the result was far from a convincing one for the club.
While its still way too early to read into the side’s results, the underwhelming defensive displays are bound to have sent jitters down the side’s ranks. The side has clearly looked bereft of any kind of acumen or resilience at the back, a predicament which has cost the club two fixtures.
Elsewhere, Chennaiyin got their new season off to just the ideal start. The team carried off from where it had left last season as its ascendancy in the marquee continued with the team downing Jamshedpur 2-1 in its season opener.
CFC Vs KBFC Fantasy Probable Winner
This fixture between the two neighbours is bound to be a competitive and feisty affair owing to the geographical closeness of the two states. Chennaiyin should manage to walk away with the plaudits today with the side’s attacking repertoire of players capitalising on a waning Kerala Blasters defence.

Had Albino Gomes not decided to take matters into his own hands the last time around, Kerala Blasters would have slipped to a second successive defeat. He was a rock infront of a battering of shots fired his way to see him protect his side’s stick with perfection.
Although both the sides are yet to record a cleansheets in the league, if there’s any side capable of pulling one off, its Chennaiyin. The side is not only endowed with a slew of worldclass names in its backline but also possesses the requisite acumen and knowhow to stave of attacking plays.
It sees us opt for the trio of Reagan, Eli Sabia and Enes Sipovic from the club.
Both Lallianzuala and Anirudh were involved in Chennaiyin attacking soirees the last time around. With an assist and goal respectively, the two helped guide the side to a 2-1 win against Jamshedpur, performances which make the two alongside Rafael Crivellaro our attacking triad from Chennaiyin.
Kerala Blasters meanwhile will see Vicente Gomez be our lone pick from the club. The player had taken to the league like a fish takes to water with him winning a string of challenges and aerial dules the last time around.
He finds company in the club’s top scorer, Sergio Cidoncha, a player who is living upto his reputation with the one goal in two fixtures.
The set of picks from the side are completed by the selection of striker Gary Hooper with him scoring for the club in the same contest. Chennaiyin will meanwhile see their top scorer, Esmael Goncalves close out proceedings for us today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His goal and assist will see Esmael captain our team while Lallianzuala is the vice-captain.
Albino Gomes, Reagan, Eli Sabia, Enes Sipovic, Sergio, Gomez, Anirudh, Lallianzuala, Rafael Crivellaro, Esmael Goncalves, Hooper
