Team Details

Chennaiyin FC

Chennai will definitely look to win the game as if they won it this will be their hat-trick victory. After their loss in the first match, the coach has changed the formation and the team had bounced back with a 3-0 victory against NEUFC. The same formation was continued in the match vs FCPC to and it had worked out for CFC only the substitutes have changed for the last 2 matches. CFC’s Defenders were very strong, it is difficult for the opponent to penetrate them. Jeje still not started his goal count we can expect his goal in this match. Probably the same line up could continue this match too.


If the Defending Champions continued like this means they could not defend the title even they could not reach the semifinal. After ended their 1st match draw against KB. They had met with a huge loss with FCPC as 1-4 in their home even their fans were not expected this kind of play from ATK. In their 3rd match, they had come with many changes but only managed to draw the game without any goal against JFC. It is expected that ATK’s marquee player Robie Keane could start. But the biggest blow for ATK is Eugeneson Lyngdoh had injured during the match vs JFC and will miss out the game. Definitely ATK will fight hard to mark its maiden victory of the season.

Expected Line-Up’s

Chennaiyin FC(4-5-1): Karanjit Singh, Inigo Calderon, Henrique Sereno, Mailson Alves, Jerry Lalrinzuala, Francisco Fernandes, Dhanapal Ganesh, Raphael Augusto, Bikramjit Singh, Gregory Nelson, Jeje Lalpekhlua.
