The CFC vs FCPC match preview –

The defending champions of the Indian Super League in Chennaiyin FC will be looking to take on FC Pune City in the regular season on Saturday. Chennaiyin FC have already become the team with the worst title defense in the history of the competition. The team has won just one game out 13 played and it has been a terrible feat to witness. It is shocking to see a side of their stature collapse drastically and having no potency in front of the goal. If they are going to continue doing this, it might be the record of being the team with the worst record ever in the ISL as well.

Meanwhile, FC Pune City are finally playing football that got them into the semi-finals of the tournament last time out. Their new manager in Phillip Brown has figured out a way to make this team work and much of that happened when Ian Hume returned from injury. Even though he hasn’t been involved in a goal or an assist, he makes sure that the team is ticking along in an orderly manner. They are in the 7th spot right now and have limited chances of making the playoffs this season.
