TEAM NEWS

Kerala blasters will lock horns with our southern rivals Chennaiyin FC on 26th February 2022 on a battle to win back the confidence. Both teams are returning from a defeat and will be striving to regain their confidence by a win. ‘Marina Machans’, who have failed to register a win in their last 6 outings will be all set to give out everything on the field to win their next 2 matches. Closing the season on a winning note will be the prime target for coach Syed Sabir Pasha too.

Whereas, Kerala blasters have a must-win match to secure the semi-final spot. After a dream run this season, Ivan Vukomanovic’s men will not be satisfied with anything lesser than a win. Returning from a last-minute draw against ATK Mohun Bagan, Kerala Blasters fought hard and went down against Hyderabad FC in the last match. As the season is approaching its closure, each win counts for the “YELLOW ARMY’.

Availability of Rahul KP will open up options to add more firepower in wing attacks for Blasters.
Also, Soraisam Sandeep Singh returning from the suspension makes the defense unit stronger. However, the man in charge Coach Ivan Vukomanovic and his game plans will remain to play a crucial part in the MEN IN YELLOW’s performance on field. When the likes of Aridan luna, Vincy Barretto, Alvaro Vasquez, and Sahal Abdul Samad step in to field on a must-win game, it will be interesting to watch how the Chennaiyin FC defense will be able to contain them. Kerala Blasters Custodian Prabhsukhan Singh Gill, who has impressed even the opponent team with a spectacular double save in the last match is definitely at his best

HEAD TO HEAD

Overall, in the Indian super league, CHENNAIYIN FC oversee the fixture with 6 victories out of the 17 times we met. 7 games saw both teams sharing points and KERALA BLASTERS secured wins in the remaining 4 encounters.

KEY PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT.

Aridan luna who is in the blistering form will be the player to watch out for. Vincy Barretto, who was the goal scorer in the last match will be high on confidence and it will be interesting to watch what he has to offer against the Chennaiyin FC defense.
