Chennaiyin FC will be looking to register their second win in as many matches while The Tuskers are still waiting for their 1st win of the new campaign.


HEAD TO HEAD:


The last time around these two teams it was a goalfest with Chennaiyin putting 6 past Kerala. Chennaiyin lead on the overall head to head as well with 6 wins in 14 encounters against the men in yellow.

Key Battle:


JAKUB SYLVESTR vs GARY HOOPER
Well Gary Hooper did score in his last outing but he also missed a glorious chance which could have secured three points for his team. This time he will need to improve his finishing if Kerala want to have any chance in winning against Chennai based team.


Hooper’s counterpart Sylvestr didn’t score against Jamshedpur but he created 3 chances for his teammates. This time around he’ll look to turn scorer from creator and find the net for the 1st time in India.
