The CFC vs NEUFC match preview –

The defending champions of the Indian Super League in Chennaiyin FC will be travelling to take on NorthEast United FC on Saturday. Chennaiyin FC has already become the team with the worst title defence in the history of the tournament. They are in the last position right now in the league table and it seems that everything that could wrong has gone wrong for the side. With only 1 win in 12 played, they are not doing well for themselves at all and it seems highly unlikely that the team will be recovering from this fall from grace anytime soon.

Meanwhile, NorthEast United FC are having a decent season so far. The team has been hovering around the top-four for the majority of the season and it seems that they are a better side this time out. This franchise saw a wholesale of changes being done to them in the summer and with the acquisitions of Jose Leudo and Bartholomew Ogbeche, it is clear that they have two exceptionally gifted players in the roster.
