Atletico de Kolkata are placed third with 18 points from 12 matches and will be guaranteed of a top-four finish with a draw against Kerala Blasters. The former champions enjoy a superior head-to-head record against both Kerala Blasters and NorthEast United FC, while only one of those team can overtake Delhi Dynamos’s points tally as they battle amongst themselves in the concluding league clash. Based on current form, Atletico de Kolkata will be favourites to become the third team to book their place.
Atletico de Kolkata scored a last-gasp 2-1 victory against FC Goa in their last match. It was a match they dominated and deserved to score more goals, a fact that was emphasised by the Spanish coach. Also Check- Indian Super League 2016 Complete Schedule
Atletico de Kolkata are sweating on the fitness of star midfielder Sameehg Doutie, besides Stephen Pearson and Lalrindika Ralte. While Doutie has fever and didn’t train with the team, Lalrindika and Pearson have not yet recovered from injuries.
Kerala Blasters have done well to reach the fourth spot for now after collecting just a point from their first three matches. A win for Kerala Blasters will take them closer to the semi-final spot (97.53 per cent), although they will not be guaranteed a top four place as they are dependent on head-to-head record of teams who can reach 21 points like Atletico de Kolkata, Delhi Dynamos and NorthEast United FC.
Despite Steve Coppell’s confidence, Kerala Blasters will have to remain guarded against Atletico de Kolkata. Kerala are on a four-match winning streak at home but have failed to impress in away games. They have not won any of their last three away matches and have conceded 10 goals away from home, a record that is bettered only by bottom-placed teams like Chennaiyin FC (12) and FC Goa (12). Worryingly, Kerala Blasters have failed to score in four of their six away games and scored only three away goals, the lowest by any team.
