After losing miserably against Goa by 4-2. Pune City will welcome another team. But this is far more different than the yester team. This team, Kerala Blasters are also struggling in this season. So it should a little easy for the Punekars if we compare to Team Goa. Where Pune is still waiting for a win in this season and wants to leave the last position in the table. But having a hat-trick of loses, it definitely will not be an easy job for them. Not to forget that Diego Carlos will not gonna play this match due to his red card in the match against Goa. We will definitely gonna see lots of changes in their line-up.
New Manager Preduyman Reddy’s first game against Goa may have a bad impact for him. But we know Pune City have that strength to fight back and Punekar’s are just waiting for the first win. If we compare to Kerala Blasters they are to be true pretty weak but that’s football an unpredictable game. And Kerala shouldn’t forget that they are going to play on their ground. So Pune will have come with the 12th man (the audience) who will be going to shout out for the Punekars.
Kerala Blasters may have just one win in the first match of this season. But also still not defeated by any team so far. After having a 2-2 draw match against Jamshedpur, they will have pretty good confidence for this match. If we compare to Pune City, Kerala is Blasting everywhere. Whether it was head-to-head in ISL or last matches in this season, they are winning in every analysis. I think 90% of ISL will go with Kerala Blasters for this match, except True Pune City Lovers. Kerala put their 3 important players in the back seat for the match against Jamshedpur. They might be coming back for this game for sure. They will not be going to take Pune City at ease. Samad and Doungel where actually back seated but in the second half they came as substitutes and have a great impact in the match. So we might be going to see them too in the playing XI.
