If both the teams had not dropped points in their previous match then this encounter would have had more significance, with regards to the title race. Mathematically, both these sides can still become champions but for that leaders Chennai City must drop points in their remaining fixtures.

David Robertson has made made two changes to his side that drew 2-2 against Indian Arrows in their last match. Gnohere Krizo and Farhan Ganie have been relegated to the bench as Abednedo Tetteh and Vicky Metei start ahead of them.
