Meanwhile, the schedule of ISL second phase was released last day. Currently, the Yellow Army, who have played 12 matches, have 10 matches left. The yellow team will start the second half of the ISL with a match against the mighty Odisha FC on the second day of next month. And the last group match against Hyderabad FC on 12th April.
Interestingly, six of the remaining 10 games for Kerala Blasters are away. Only four games are left for the Yellow Army at home. It is a big challenge. The excellence of playing at home in front of one’s own crowd does not translate into yellow when playing away. Unbeaten at home in the 2023-24 season, the Yellow Army suffered two away defeats.
Kerala Blasters should try to win the remaining four games at home by any means. A possible 12 points at home will boost the team’s title hopes. If they get at least 12 points out of a possible 18 points at the away ground, Kerala Blasters can somehow secure the maiden shield. That means if they get at least 24 points in the remaining 10 games, things will go as expected by the Yellow Army.
The Yellow Army now have home matches against Punjab FC, FC Goa, Mohun Bagan Super Giant and East Bengal in the ISL 2023-24 season. The away matches are against Odisha FC, Chennaiyin FC, Bengaluru FC, Jamshedpur FC, Northeast United FC and Hyderabad FC. There is no doubt that Kerala Blasters will have to pay a heavy price for every point they lose at home.
At the same time, Kerala Blasters, who went on international break in the best form, are not in the best shape when the league resumes. The reason is the unexpected setback in the Kalinga Super Cup. Blasters, who came to the Super Cup with hopes of the title, were eliminated without even reaching the semi-finals. This has also affected the confidence of the Yellow Army. Yellow team fans are hoping that the team will come back strong from all this
