Kerala Blasters vs Delhi Dynamos
India-Indian Super League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET/19:30 IST
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Kochi).
ISL is coming back to Kochi as the Blasters get ready to host Delhi Dynamos in their second home match for the season.
Three points were snatched from them by Mumbai in their first match at home. A last minute stunner from Bhumji of Mumbai equalised the early strike from Narzary of Blasters.
The home team are at their best whenever they play in front of their home crowd.
The humongous Manjappada fan base has been cheering louder than ever this season. Some of them were even seen at China, last week supporting the Indian National team.
The team is third in the league with a win and a draw and lack only in the goals scored.
The forwards are in good form apart from Doungel who was brought in this season. The full backs Lalruathara and Rakip have been a class apart and both along with Captain Sandesh Jhingan have featured in the team of the week after first round.
Delhi is in a state of bother. Coach Josep Gombau has not found the perfect combination in line-ups. With players like Changhte and Nanda out of form and having lost their star striker Kalu Uche to ATK Delhi are poor in scoring goals.
Last match saw them losing to Kolkata at home 2-1. The only goal for the hosts came from Pritam Kotal the right back.

Kerala Blasters vs Delhi Dynamos: Prediction
With Kerala playing at their home and with the visitors performing poorly Blasters are the clear favourites going into this match. If the Delhi side can’t find goals from somewhere they may play defensive. Also they have some players who can score stunning long rangers.
The home team have to show the composure to keep possession and not giving space for the opposition to shoot.
