The CFC vs FCPC match preview –

The stuttering defending champions of the Indian Super League in Chennaiyin FC will be looking to do something significant this year as they take on FC Pune City on Tuesday.

Chennaiyin FC are going through the worst period in the history of their franchise. Sadly, this comes directly after achieving the highest of highs by winning the entire competition in season four. They have played six games till now and have lost five of them. That’s a disgraceful record and shocking to see them falter so stunningly in season five. Coach John Gregory has to look at himself effectively and clearly. Some of the changes he has made to the team have backfired, and now the only thing they can do it avoid collateral damage.

On the other hand, FC Pune City are doing slightly better than what they were last week. The team isn’t getting swept up clean do look like a side who have some fire left. Manager Miguel Portugal finally unleashed Marcelinho on the pitch, and it has been his presence on the field that has improved the football massively. They are still the second-last team in the league, but still, have enough raw power to cause trouble to their opponents.
