Apart from Mumbai City FC and FC Goa, all the six other teams are still jostling for a spot in the semi-finals of the ISL. Mumbai City FC have booked their place, while FC Goa has squandered their campaign. Of the remaining six, Delhi Dynamos, Atletico Kolkata and Kerala Blasters look the favourites to go through. NorthEast United, who have three matches remaining, can go through by winning all the three matches. For Chennaiyin FC and FC Pune City to qualify, not only they need to win all their remaining fixtures but the some of the other results must go on their way too. The matches will become more attacking and result-oriented, providing an extra dimension to online betting.
Chennaiyin FC vs NorthEast United FC
The match will be played at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai, later today. If Chennaiyin FC fails to win, it will be all over for them. NorthEast also need a win, but they will even settle for a draw in this away match. Whoever suffers a defeat will be closer to exit door. The Chennai side has won just one of their previous eight matches. They do not have the confidence of a settled combination. The NorthEast side looks settled, but a lack of goal-scoring ammunition often spoils their hard work. NorthEast United had suffered four losses on the trot, but they snapped a winless run of six matches with a hard-earned win over FC Pune City in their last match.
Prediction: Chennaiyin will come out firing all cylinders. They have the advantage on their home ground. Still, there is no outright favourite for online betting, though.
Delhi Dynamos FC vs FC Goa
This one is slightly easier for online betting. Delhi Dynamos will be the overwhelming favourites against FC Goa tomorrow at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi. The Goan side is looking down and out. On the other hand, the home side will be in a sparkling mood, having won three of their last five matches. They lost their last match against FC Pune City 4-3 in a goal fest. The team has been sufficiently rested after that match. They are expected to win against FC Goa, who are not in the fray for semi-final race.
