Chennaiyin FC favourites in South Indian derby against Kerala Blasters - get ISL 2021-22 fantasy tips
Chennaiyin FC (CFC) take on Kerala Blasters (KBFC) in match 38 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama on Wednesday, December 22.
CFC vs KBFC Dream11 prediction
Fourth-placed Chennaiyin resume hostilities against Kerala Blasters for the first time this term. While Kerala are high on confidence following a shock 3-0 win over leaders Mumbai City FC, CFC ended their run of three games without a win with a 2-1 victory against Odisha FC.
The Chennaiyin FC vs Kerala Blasters head-to-head record is in favour of the former. In 16 meetings, CFC have six victories while KBFC have won on three occasions. The south Indian clubs have played out seven draws.
The recent clash between the clubs was a heated 1-1 draw, where four Chennaiyin players were cautioned and one player - Enes Sipovic - was sent off. Considering the H2H record, we reckon a convincing victory for Chennai.
CFC vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Alvaro Vazquez starts as the top forward for the CFC vs KBFC match with 215 fantasy points. The Spaniard has three goals to his name so far and will look to appease his 71.5 per cent fantasy owners with a convincing display against Chennaiyin FC.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Adrian Luna is poised to dominate proceedings in the midfield engine room against CFC. The Uruguayan attacking midfielder has been involved in three goals in six games for Kerala, but will need to up the ante against the Marina Machans who have conceded just four goals so far in ISL 2021-22. With 242 fantasy points, Luna could be a differential ahead of Chennaiyin’s Vladimir Koman.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Chennaiyin FC have one of the most shrewd defensive setups in ISL 2021-22 and will pin their hopes on Reagan Singh to help the Marina Machans register a clean sheet against Kerala Blasters. The Indian centre-back has registered 22 tackles, 13 interceptions and 25 clearances, and will need to be at his absolute best to deny KBFC’s attackers on Wednesday.
CFC’s Vishal Kaith stands out as a better goalkeeping choice for fantasy users. The 25-year-old custodian has kept just two clean sheets this term, while registering 15 saves. Kaith’s 154 fantasy points haul is way clear ahead of his competitor Albino Gomes (80) who was impressive against Mumbai in his last game.
CFC vs KBFC probable playing XI
CFC playing XI (probable): Vishal Kaith (goalkeeper); Ariel Borysiuk, Slavko Damjanovic, Narayan Das; Reagan Singh, Anirudh Thapa (captain), Vladimir Koman, Edwin Sydney Vanspaul, Jerry Lalrinzuala; Lallianzuala Chhangte, Lukasz Gikiewicz
KBFC playing XI (probable): Albino Gomes (goalkeeper); Harmanjot Khabra, Marko Leskovic, Enes Sipovic, Jessel Carneiro (captain); Vincy Barretto, Jeakson Singh, Ayush Adhikari, Sahal Abdul Samad; Adrian Luna, Alvaro Vazquez
