Chennayin FC silenced the home crowd during FC Goa’s first match and it was a major setback to one of the premier footballing hubs of the country. NorthEast, on the other hand, flew off to a flying start in the tournament; winning their opening encounter but were humbled at the hands of the high-flying Atletico de Kolkata. With a vast number of young players in the team, NorthEast were billed as the ‘underdogs’ of the ISL. The side looks a tad short in experience but are a dangerous team on the counter-attack, with their fleet-footed young Indian players at their disposal. Goa, on the other hand are a balanced side and the ISL is eagerly awaiting to see the full bloom of Arsenal legend, Robert Pires.
