NEUFC vs KBFC Dream11 prediction
Both NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters endured identical results in their season opener, losing 4-2 to Bengaluru FC and ATK Mohun Bagan respectively.
Despite enjoying a better ball possession, KBFC were outplayed in every department. KBFC, on the other hand, put on a sensational display in the first half, but lost the plot as the match progressed.
Meanwhile, Kerala Blasters currently have the upper hand in terms of their head-to-head record against NorthEast United. In a total of 14 meetings, KBFC have won five while NEUFC have won four. As many as five matches have ended in a draw. During these 14 matches, KBFC have scored 14 goals while NEUFC have netted 11.
We expect Thursday’s match between the teams to either end in a draw or KBFC clinching a narrow victory.
NEUFC vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best striker
KBFC forward Jorge Pereyra Diaz has been selected by a whopping 93.87 per cent of fantasy users and it comes as no surprise considering his performance against ATK Mohun Bagan. The 31-year-old forward scored a goal, had two shots on target as he finished with 66 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best midfielder
KBFC’s Sahal Abdul Samad was fantastic against ATK Mohun Bagan. Deployed on the wings, the 24-year-old scored a goal, created one chance and put on a brilliant tackle to accrue 68 fantasy points from the fixture. Given his position, he is likely to exchange several passes throughout the match, making him a valuable asset for the fantasy managers.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
NEFC defender Marko Leskovic has been selected by almost 90 per cent of the fantasy users. This comes following his return of 25 fantasy points despite his team losing 4-2. We recommend you to pick the KBFC defender for this fixture.
For a goalkeeper, Subhasish Roy of NEUFC should make the cut. The 35-year-old accumulated 14 fantasy points from his previous outings and that too after enduring a heavy defeat. His ability to make good reaction saves will benefit the fantasy users.
