The KBFC vs FCPC match preview –
Teams from the southern part of India meet in the Indian Super League as Kerala Blasters FC host FC Pune City on Friday.
Kerala Blasters FC are currently 7th in the table and can be regarded as ‘best of the rest’. The last game was a decent showing from the side who drew against a gritty Jamshedpur FC. They were actually competitive and threatened to score goals. If this team is able to do more of the same in the coming games, they will be in a good shape for next season.
Meanwhile, FC Pune City are still struggling for form. They have won only one game in the 10 played and are on a two-game losing streak as well. Coach Miguel Portugal has been experimenting with the side since coming and still hasn’t found a solution to any of these problems. Something has to give for FC Pune City or else their fate will be sealed in the coming years as the team who is only a filler in this competition.
