KBFC Vs NEUFC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Agonising attack squares off against a per thin defensive unit as two dwindling units strive for semblance
With the season more or less done for today’s opponents, when our competitors step out to the middle today, this tie is all about saving face for themselves. Both NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters know they have extremely bleak chances of making it into the ensuing stage of the Indian Super League 2019-20, ones which were further diminished after their respective defeats the last time around.
Playing against Chennaiyin the last time around, Kerala Blasters were once again left ruing their plight in defence. Despite mustering up three goals, the side’s backline was blown apart in a goal feast, an extradonaire nine goal attacking tie which saw Kerala Blasters being putdown 6-3.
It was their third successive defeat, one which brought an end to their mini revival in the league to see them slump down all the way into 8th spot. However, they’ll be quietly confident of raking up three points today when they come across a side which has endured a season even worse than them with their opponents floundering in 9th spot with a mere 2 wins all season.
Mumbai City should manage to win this tie with ease. They are up against an agonising opposition, a side which has offered nothing in either facet of the game, a team which should crumble infront of a Mumbai City side which will be boisterously cheered on by its ardent supporters.
