The 12th edition of the Hero Indian I-league is set to commence as Chennai City FC takes to the field against Indian Arrows on Friday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Coimbatore.
In the previous campaign of the I-league, both the teams failed to impress, with Chennai bagging 19 points from 18 games whereas, Arrows only managed 15 points in 18 games, to finish at the bottom of the league. Chennai City ended their season in the eighth position.
The young Indian arrows side holds an impressive record against their hosts as they have faced each other twice and remained undefeated against the South Indian side, the highlight of their head to head clashes came in January this year when Arrows thumped Chennai with a dominant 3-0 victory.
Arrows head coach Floyd Pinto, and skipper Amarjeet Singh Kiyam would certainly be looking for similar positive results against their hosts on Friday.
Chennai, who made their debut in the 10th edition of I-league, and since then have not scripted anything to boast about but this season, the south Indian side are bolstered with a new coach in Singaporean Akbar Nawas, as well as some strong foreign signings, by the virtue of which, they will aim for a top table finish.
