The host Delhi will face the rising NorthEast in Match 23 of on October 30, 2018.
This face-off definitely seems to be one-sided as NorthEast has been on their best for this season, better than the previous four seasons of the Indian Football Championship. They started off with a draw against current toppers of the season Goa, followed by a win against two-time champions Kolkata and a spectacular 4-3 win against Chennai. They successfully managed to hold Jamshedpur 1-1 in their last face-off. NorthEast currently stands 2nd with 8 points in their store.
On the other side, Delhi is at their worst in this season with no winning until now. Their last debacle against Mumbai had raised eyebrows on whether Delhi is capable enough to exist in this league. They might seem desperate to win but their form is on the loose ends.
It will a sheer luck to see Delhi perform well, but technically it’s NorthEast who had the best comebacks and defense till now.
Probable Playing 11:
NorthEast: Gurmeet Singh(GK), Ogbeche, Tlang, Khosla, Setyasen Singh, Okrah, Fenai Lalrempuia, Lalthlamuana, Gurwinder Singh, Pereira, Komorski.
Delhi: Dorronsoro (GK), Kaulderovic, Lalhimpuia, Chhangte, Bikramjit Singh, Tebar, Mohanraj, Fernandes, Hanghal, Narayan Das, Zuiverloon.
Definitely, this is a one-sided match where winning will pace in favor of NorthEast as they are on their best forms regarding defense and attacks while Delhi is definitely off-the-grid and on the losing side.
