NorthEast United FC will try to take away another 3 points away while maintaining their unbeaten run.
Chennaiyin FC on the other hand would like to bounce back to winning ways right from this match snatching a win from the Highlanders.

3 Indian Players to look out for

The player who’s inclusion is no doubt a sure thing is Apuia Ralte of NorthEast United FC. He time and again has proved why he is a key player for his team in the defensive part of the midfield. Next up is the Young Indian international being one of the highest Indian goal scorer in the ISL, Lallianzuala Chhangte of Chennaiyin FC. He has been a key player for any team he player for in the wings. Next up is the young Mizo winger of NorthEast United FC, Rocharzella, who has a very high goal scoring instinct which makes him very lethal threat for any team who plays against him.

3 Foreign Players to look out for

The first one to make it into this list is none other then the wall of NorthEast United FC, big ben, Benjamin Lambot. His interceptions, blocks has been spot on. The next name in the list is Rafael Crivellaro, the playmaker for the Chennaiyin FC, who’s presence has been vital for his team. Next up on the list is ‘the tank’ of NorthEast United FC, Khassa Camara, another defensive midfield beast of the Highlanders. He has been a crackerjack for his team and helped the defence at times when needed.


The NorthEast United FC will likely miss their custodian Subhasish Roy Choudhary, who might miss out the season owning to a injury. Fede might also miss the match due to his hamstring issue.

More hearteningly for Laszlo and Chennaiyin fans, influential midfielder Anirudh Thapa is set to return to the side for the NorthEast match, after missing out against Mumbai City last time out. He had suffered an injury in their 1-0 loss to Bengaluru FC.
The condition of Isma Goncalves and Enes Sipovic, both of whom had to be taken out during the Mumbai game with injuries, is also better than first feared.
“Thapa was more or less ready for the previous game. Now he is training fully. It looks good for Thapa. Isma will take 14 days. He is not so serious. Whereas, Sipovic will be out for seven days. Good that they will not miss many matches. The other players are doing a great job.”
