As a result, Blasters had to start the 10th season with a defeat in the second stage of the ISL. The Yellow Army’s defeat against Odisha FC was by two goals to one. With a good win, the fans are now hoping that the Blasters will return to their old form. Fans believe that this will happen in the team’s next match against Punjab FC. The Yellow Army will face Punjab with significant changes in the team that played in the match against Odisha. Let’s see the changes that Blasters will make in this game and the possible lineup of the team.
Malayalam player Sachin Suresh will be the goalkeeper of Kerala Blasters against Punjab FC. Sachin, who made his ISL debut this season, is in good form. There will be no change in the defensive line. The same players who played in the last match will line up against Punjab. While Pritam Kotal will be the right back and Navocha Singh will be the left back, the Croatian player Marko Leskovic and the Montenegrin player Milos Drincic will line up in the central defense.
It is doubtful whether Jackson Singh will be fit to play full-time after recovering from injury. So don’t expect the star in the starting eleven. Malayalee stars Mohammad Azhar, Mohammad Aiman and Danish Farooq will be in the middle row. Japanese star Daisuke Sakai, who was in the starting eleven in the last game, may be out. Instead, the team’s new signing, Lithuanian player Fedor Sernic, will be in the starting eleven. This is also the first match that Cernich is going to play in Kochi.
There will also be a change in progress. Another Malayali player Rahul KP will play instead of Nihal Sudheesh who played in the last match. He missed the last match due to earlier suspension. Greek star Dimitrios Diamantakosau is also a key forward. Things will be easy for Kerala Blasters if Dhimi can continue this season’s brilliant form against Punjab FC. Dimi is now second in the Indian Super League’s goal chase in the 10th season with eight goals.
At the same time, Kerala Blasters FC is currently at the third position in the ISL points table. The Yellow Army has 26 points from 13 games with eight wins, two draws and three losses. Odisha FC is at the top with 31 points and FC Goa is at the second position with 28 points.
