KBFC Vs NEUFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Kerala Blasters’ season gets off to an appalling start with the side underwhelming in it defeats.
While the 1-0 scoreline wasn’t a particularly damaging one for Kerala Blasters in their season opener, the underwhelming attacking performance the club dished out is bound to have left the side crestfallen. The side was far from impressive when it came to the attacking side of the game, a dreary performance which resigned them to returning goalless on the day.
While the club will not massively beat itself up given that it was only their first performance of this season, the side knows its an elephant in the room they need to address at the earliest plausible. Given the short turnaround time between fixtures, the team will be striving for a quick solution to their problem ahead of today’s outing.
Up against an opposition which managed to keep the staunch Mumbai side at bay, Kerala Blasters know they once again stare at a daunting test. This is by no means going to be a straightforward contest for the club with the affair set to test their attacking acumen yet again.

- Gary Hooper
- Kwesi Appiah: 1 Goal
Albino Gomes was the only reason Kerala Blasters were able to even themselves involved in their contest the last time around as long as they. The side’s goal-keeper refused to let anything past him with a string of saves seeing him restrict the opposition to just the one goal.
After a stunning defensive effort against Mumbai City, one which saw them end up with a cleansheet in their league opening match, it was only rightful of us to opt for a trio from the opposition.
Along with the cleansheet on the day, Dylan Fox was crucial to his side’s aspirations of pulling off a win too. His assist for the encounter’s only goal saw a string of plaudits being crooned his way to see us make him the first pick from the club.
The tenacious Benjamin Lambot and Ashutosh Mehta will link up with him for the day’s affairs.
The three couldn’t have pulled off a cleansheet though without the myriad skill set of Khassa Camara. The CDM provided unstinted support to his side’s backline as he screened everything directed his way to close out the attacking plays.
The imperious Federico Gallego comes in from the side as well while Kerala Blasters will find representation in a duo as well. Its one comprising of the electric Sergio Cidoncha and Vicente Gomez, two players who can move in unison to conjure up shots at crucial junctures.
Scorer of the side’s match winning goal the last time around see striker Kwesi Appiah become the first pick from the side for the encounter. Joining him is Luis Machado, a two players who intertwined their expertise to pepper Mumbai’s defensive setup with a slew of shots.
Kerala Blasters meanwhile see the guile filled Gary Hooper wrap up our set of picks for the day.
