Chennaiyin FC vs Kerela Blasters Preview
Hans Mulder and Raphael Augusto are the playmaker in the Chennai side with holding the pass and play gameplay. Former Liverpool Left Back John Arne Riise is exceptional in the Defense and is excellent with his attacking Work rate as well falling forward with his leading overlap runs throughout the wide areas.
Although the attacking responsibilities for breaking the Deadlock will be on the shoulders of the Indian striker Jeje Lalpekhlua who is spot on with the possessions. The problem for Chennaiyin FC has been the defense as Wadoo and Bernard Mendy have been sloppy most of the times.
For the Kerela Blasters FC, the Newcastle United striker Michael Chopra is outstanding in positioning and controls the Game pairing with Mohammad Rafi. “It was not a Conscious decision to Focus only on the Defense while building the team. I think we are Solid and Well organized, but we do not have enough goals’’ said the Kerela Blasters manager Steve Coppel.
It’s a matter of fact that Kerela Blasters lack that goalscoring streak and are struggling to score. Let us see if Rocky Chopra and Rafi could increase their goals tally. Kerela Blasters should expose the wide areas and attack deeply to push this Chennaiyin FC side on the backfoot

Chennaiyin FC vs Kerela Blasters FC Predictions
Chennaiyin FC has been pretty solid in the attack but their issue lies in the Defense same goes with the Kerela Blasters FC but vice verse. Kerela has managed to get clean sheets on maximum occasion but has failed to score, though. Chennaiyin must be aware of the counterattacking threat from Kerela Blasters. However, I predict a 2-1 Kerela Blasters victory. Chopra and Mohd Rafi to score for the Blasters. Whereas Jeje to score the only Chennaiyin goal.
