December 20: Chennaiyin v/s Kerala Blasters

After six rounds every, each these groups are on solely 5 factors with 1 win and three defeats. Chennaiyin has been struggling ever since profitable the ISL 2017-18 title, and the Blasters have tanked after beating ATK on the primary day of the season. They virtually beat a 10-man Goa final week till they conceded within the dying seconds, and must win at the least three matches this month with out shedding the remainder to remain within the reckoning for the playoffs. Chennaiyin is contemporary from sacking their two-time title-winning coach John Gregory after they confirmed religion in him regardless of a disastrous bottom-finishing final season, and can look to start out a brand new chapter this month on a powerful observe.
