Chennaiyin Form

Chennaiyin were heartbreakingly denied victory on Saturday when they conceded two minutes into injury time to draw 2-2 with Goa.

It is now seven games without a win for Csaba Lazlo's side. But at least they did break their goalscoring problems having failed to score in five of their previous six games.

Jakub Sylvestr put Chennaiyin in front before Igor Angulo equalised. Lallianzuala Chhangte put the Marina Machins 2-1 up, only for Ishan Pandita to level in the 92nd minute.

Chennaiyin have been trading draws and losses since last collecting all three points in mid-Janauary.

They have lost to ATK Mohun Bagan, Hyderabad and Jamshedpur and drawn with East Bengal, Mumbai City, Bengaluru and Goa.

Chennaiyin Team News

Midfielder Anirudh Thapa remains a doubt after featuring for just 45 minutes of football across the last month.

Thapa will be given a late fitness test, but could return to the bench.

NorthEast United Form

NorthEast United are one of the ISL's form teams after moving into the top four on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run.

A 3-1 victory over Odisha on Sunday made it four wins in their last six matches for the Highlanders.

Luis Machado got two and Deshorn Brown was also on the mark to put NorthEast 3-0 up inside 24 minutes. Brad Inman reduced the arrears in first-half stoppage time.

The win follows victories over Jamshedpur, ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City to underline their title credentials.

Khalid Jamil's side have also drawn with Bengaluru, Goa and Hyderabad during their seven-game unbeaten run.

NorthEast United Team News

Left-back Gurjinder Kumar sits this one out as he serves a one-game ban for his sending off against Odisha.

Defender Wayne Vaz is ruled out for the season.

Head to Head

NorthEast United hold a 6-4 head to head advantage over Chennaiyin. There have also been four draws between the sides.

The last two clashes have ended with a share of the points. A 2-2 draw last season was followed by a 0-0 this campaign in December.


Chennaiyin snapped their goalscoring problems in their last game, but not the search for a win. 

That goes on and they are unlikely to end it against an in form NorthEast United side which is building up a head of steam at the right time.

  • Chennaiyin are winless in their last 7 matches (Indian Super League).
  • NorthEast United are unbeaten in their last 7 matches (Indian Super League).
  • NorthEast United have won 4 of their last 6 matches (Indian Super League).
