Delhi Dynamos vs Kerala Blasters
India- Indian Super League.
Date: Thursday, 31st January 2019.
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (New Delhi).
Delhi will kick start their season after the break on Thursday against the Kerala Blasters. With just 3 points between them, we can expect a close game at New Delhi.
The Dynamos picked up their only win of the season against Chennaiyin FC just before the international break. Apart from a goalless draw against Chennaiyin in the reverse fixture of that game, they have conceded in all the remaining 10 league games this season.
More than 2.5 goals were scored in total on 5 of their 6 previous games. But they have a disappointing record this season as they have not won a single game at home just like Chennaiyin and the Blasters.
The opponents are interested in drawing matches rather than winning them. After an opening win over former champions and archrivals ATK, Blasters went on to draw half their league matches. They are just 3 points above their hosts for Thursday.
Yellow army will be hoping that their team finishes this season on a high and prepare well for the upcoming Super Cup. Their side is fresh from a 1-1 draw at home against ATK. The reverse fixture against Delhi at home saw them take the lead early through C K Vineeth and conceded at the dying moments of the match.
Even with significant absentees in their squad, the team in yellow managed to draw against ATK. So we can hope this match turns out to be a win for them.

Delhi Dynamos vs Kerala Blasters: Prediction
The visitors are a much better squad in terms of form. Players like Prasanth and Sahal Abdul Samad has shown great promise and are future stars. But on the other hand, none of the Delhi players have been taking initiative. Also, the Manjappada will travel to Delhi like they always do, to support their team away from home. So I think the Blasters will find a second win on Thursday.
In their 3 previous h2h games between them, the final score had over 2.5 goals at the full time. The same trend can be seen in 3 home games of the Dynamos and 3 away matches of Blasters as well. So we can bet on a score with more than 2.5 goals.
