Delhi Dynamos, placed last in the table, will have to elevate their game by several notches if they are to salvage something from their upcoming encounter with Chennaiyin FC at home.
The capital-based side's chances of making it to the playoffs are all but over and Miguel Angel Portugal's side will be looking to at least finish the season strongly.
The Dynamos' vulnerability in set-piece situations is very well known, with teams deliberating targetting that weakness. It is no wonder that they have shipped the most goals in the season. Their attack has not been great either, having scored just the 13 goals in 12 games.
However, Delhi have signed Spanish winger Manuel Arana on loan from FC Goa and he is expected to feature off the bench in this game. Will him give Delhi some edge against a solid outfit like Chennaiyin FC remains to be seen.
Chennaiyin FC will also be desperate for a win after losing to Bengaluru FC in their previous game which has seen them lose their second spot in the table. John Gregory will know that his side needs to put together a good run of results or risk dropping out of the playoff spots.
Chennaiyin FC's defence, which has been solid so far, was found wanting against Bengaluru FC but will be hoping it was just an aberration. However, they will need to be wary of Delhi who are coming off a big break and will be fresh as a result.
Will Gregory mastermind a win over Delhi Dynamos or will Portugal's team notch a much-needed a victory?
