NEUFC Vs CFC Dream 11 Prediction: Rampant Chennaiyin strive to move into third place as they close out their group stage encounters today.

NOTE: All big players are rested from this game, so don’t invest in this game.

This has truly been a dream season for Chennaiyin in the Indian Super League. A campaign which refused to get underway in the opening exchanges, refused to seize once on its way with the side torching it way towards to annuls of the points tally.

Refusing to be beaten once they had settled into their grove, Chennaiyin kept making massive strides with a slew of wins in their kitty as they strived to bridge the gap between themselves and the top 4. And they finally succeed the last time around after defeating Mumbai City 1-0, a result which saw them displace their opponents from fourth position to move into the coveted spot.

However, things are not yet done for Chennaiyin as they play their and the league’s final league stage encounter today. A third successive win today would see them further propel themselves up the points tally and take them into third spot, a prize the side would be eyeing before they make an advent into the coveted semi-finals.

“First of all, we want to win the game. We have three boys on three yellow cards. It will be really naive to put them on and take a risk. So those players will be rested. Ultimately, you have to beat the best teams to win. So when that comes, we will think about it. But still, we want to win tomorrow’s game,” said Chennaiyin’s manager Coyle when speaking ahead of today’s encounter.

Probable Winner

With this being a tie where both the sides will be giving a chance to their lesser played players, we envision it begin a high scoring fixture. Either side will come out of the blocks today in what promises to be a goal feast, a narrative which should see Chennaiyin rake up yet another win on the day.

Dream 11 Picks


Pawan Kumar from NorthEast United will be our side’s shot stopper for today’s encounter. It’s down to his display the last time around as he made the most of the elusive opportunity accorded to him, one which should see him pull off a slew of save points from the contest.


Being the worst attacking side in the league with a mere 14 goals scored all season, when NorthEast United face off against Chennaiyin today, the likelihood of them scoring is going to be extremely low. It’s not only down to the fact that they have failed in abysmal fashion as an attacking unit but also owing to the fact that Chennaiyin will hardly hand them the ball as they dominate proceedings on the day.

It sees us repose faith in a duo from Chennaiyin with the side in with an extremely realistic chance of pulling off a cleansheet today. The enigmatic partnership of Eli Sabia and Masih Saighani will be representing us from the unit whilst from the opposition we have Wayne Vaz come into our side for the clash.


With Rafael set to be out for Chennaiyin today along with Valskis, this clash will be a test of the side’s repertoire of attacking players. Both Dragos Firtulescu and Edwin Vanspaul will be handed over escalated roles in the side’s attacking ambit and with both of them endowed with the calibre of mustering together formidable attacking sorties, the two come into our side for the contest.

From the opposition meanwhile we’ll be moving in for Jose Leudo and Simon Lundevall, two players who will be handed over a free role by the side, one where they’ll be allowed to express themselves freely.


With 5 goals this season, Andre Schembri becomes the first name to find place in our culminating docket for the day’s encounter. He’s paired alongside Rahim Ali, a partnership which will look to capitalise on the opposition’s plight of failing to shut down attacking sorties.

From the other side of the component meanwhile, Andrew Keogh closes out our Dream 11 team after having opened his account for the side.

Captain And Vice-Captain

Given the way Chennaiyin are set to emerge as the dominant unit on the day, Schembri will captain our unit while Edwin is our vice-captain.

Dream 11 Team

Pawan, Sabia, Saighani, Vaz, Vanspaul, Leudo, Dragos, Lundevall, Schembri, Keogh, Rahim
