NorthEast United vs Kerala Blasters H2H
NorthEast United to win: Why is this a good bet?
- The Highlanders are in fourth place with 30 points
- Must-win game for them to reach the playoffs
- NorthEast United are unbeaten in their last 9 league games
- Kerala Blasters are in 10th place
- They have lost 3 of their last 5 matches
From a context of football betting, NorthEast United are bound to start this match as the heavy favourites. If anything, it is just a mere question of how many goals they win by.
With 9 matches unbeaten, the Highlanders have had a truly remarkable season. They share 30 points with Goa FC and Hyderabad trail them by 2 points in fifth place. Should NorthEast United lose this game and the Nizams win their’s, they will be out of the league.
However, that is quite unlikely to happen. The Highlanders are among the few sides this season that have beaten both – ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City FC. In the recent few matches, they have also beaten Odisha and SC East Bengal to make it to the top four.
Their 3-3 draw against Chennaiyin FC is also worth mentioning, given that Luis Machado scored the equaliser in the 90th minute.
The team is in high spirits and is playing with a lot of confidence and momentum. Beating them will be a tough ask for anyone.
Machado has been a talisman for the Highlanders this season.
Kerala Blasters, looking to save face
34 goals conceded, 8 losses, 8 draws, and just 3 wins – this season has clearly been the one to forget for Kerala Blasters. The two-time ISL runners-up are likely to finish the league in 10th place.
While the Tuskers most recently drew Chennaiyin FC to 1-1, they were previously beaten by Hyderabad FC with 4-0. Their other recent defeats came against the Islanders and the Mohun Bagan.
Things have not gone right for them at all, whether it is attack or defence. Moreover, Kibu Vicuna has also been sacked on the back of this underwhelming performance and Ishfaq Ahmed has been brought in to serve as the interim manager.
Expect Kerala Blasters to put up a good fight here but ultimately, the match should end in yet another loss for them.
Both teams to score: Why is this a good bet?
Kerala Blasters have not kept a clean sheet in their last 5. NorthEast United are in a similar boat with no clean sheet in 4 of their last 5. Based on this, it is safe to assume that we will see goals from both teams.
Over 2.5 goals: Why is this a good bet?
The strikers of the NUEFC side are in brilliant form right now. Against a defensively weak side like Kerala Blasters, they have the perfect chance here to end the league stage on a high and get some goals to boost up their confidence.
