ISL - Indian Super League
ISL: NorthEast United FC Vs Kerala Blasters
The Indian Super League has reached the business end of the competition with just two matches left for every team to play. Only Chennaiyin FC seems to have been guaranteed a place in the final four, while other teams are still keeping their hopes alive.

One such team remains to be Kerala Blasters, who with 15 points lie on the fifth position and their opponent for tonight, NorthEast United lie on seventh place. Kerala seem to have a better chance of progressing, but a victory for NorthEast in the last two fixtures could help them progress as well.

But, Kerala can attain the fourth position if they defeat NorthEast tonight, so they are sure to go all out tonight after which they can think about their next fixtures. Kerala has been in a better form than NorthEast of late with three wins in their last seven games, while the NorthEast team have lost their way, winning only one of their last seven games. Such record does not speak well about the team's performance.

Kerala would depend on their key players such as David James, Nirmal Chettri, Sandesh Jhingan, Reneddy Singh to excel, while NorthEast would depend on Joan Capdevila Lo Sambou to help them win the match with their performance and leadership qualities.

It would not be surprising if the final four positions are understood only in the last day of the round robin stages. It may also come to goal difference.
