After a long international break for Asia Cup, Indian Super League resumes back promising some bigger action at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi. This time around, maintaining a streak of losses, Kerela will lock horns with the outclass Kolkata.
Kerala has been struggling enough to claim a victory in the past 11 matches. Due to their performance resulting in 2 consecutive losses, David James has been sacked and Nelo Vingada has been appointed as the new coach with a hope to run adrenaline rush of motivation which currently the team lacks. Kerela has scored 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 5 matches across all the venues.
Kolkata has been winless in their last 2 matches, but they have been upgrading themselves in terms of performance. They have clinched one victory and lost one in their last 5 matches across all venues. Their ‘wow’ point is exclaimed in their defence as it is quite strong as compared to their opponents. Although Kolkata has been quite weak when it comes to scoring, hope the Asia Cup break can make a difference for Kolkata.
My PlayerzPot XI:
We can definitely assure a nail-biting match with Kolkata winning the match with a last minute goal.
