Chennaiyin FC host Kerala Blasters FC at home on Saturday at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in the Hero Indian Super League 2016.
Chennaiyin FC vs Kerala Blasters FC will be the first South Indian derby of the Hero ISL season 3.
Chennaiyins stand fourth on the points table with 8 points from 5 games played and a draw would be enough for them to keep themselves in the battle. Whereas Kerala Blasters also are on 8 points but with 6 games played. A lose for Kerala will put them in the top-four for the first time in this season. Kerala Blasters FC did not start the season well with back to back loses. It has mostly been a draw whenever these two teams have played against each other, last two seasons.
Undoubtedly this derby will be a thrilling one.
All the action starts at 06:50 pm, at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi.
Stay tuned for the updates.
