The NEUFC vs KBFC Dream11 match preview –

The Indian Super League is wrapping up its regular season as two sides in NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters FC in what will be either team’s 18th game on Friday.

NorthEast United FC have completed their sensational recovery this season by qualifying for the playoffs. The team was in the bottom most position last year, and they are positioned strongly to showcase their progress to the rest of the league. Since they are in the fourth spot of the table, they have a legitimate chance to finish in the second spot and avoid Bengaluru FC in the semi-finals. That will be the objective of this game and it will be interesting to see if they are going to give it their all to make this a reality.

Meanwhile, Kerala Blasters FC have had a dismal season and it sees them be in the 9th spot of the league table. The franchise has been in disarray barring the first game, and they have only won two games in 17 games played. A lot of changes are taking place at the club in terms of management and players. Given that this is the last game the team will play in front of the home crowd this season, the players need to put on a show and treat the spectators for the support shown all season long.
