ISL 2023-24: NorthEast United vs Chennaiyin FC – Build-up
The Indian Super League (ISL) is up and running with its 10th edition. We are through with the first week of the season and the second week presents us with some exciting clashes. One such entertaining clash will take place in Guwahati on September 29 as NorthEast United will host Chennaiyin FC.
The Highlanders will be keen to get a better result this time around and take revenge from the Marina Machans. It’s going to be an entertaining clash as both sides come into the game on the back of a defeat in their opening games.
The Highlanders come into the game after facing a tough loss against Mumbai City FC in their season opener. They put up a strong fight and did very well to restrict the Islanders from dominating the game.
It was a well all-round performance from a new look NorthEast United. Friday’s game in Guwahati will be more than just three points for the Highlanders. The players wouldn’t have forgotten last season’s miserable 3-7 defeat at home and will be keen to take revenge.
The Marina Machans also come into the game on the back of an opening day defeat to Sergio Lobera’s Odisha FC where they were thrashed 2-0. They made few changes with Owen Coyle coming back at the helm and looked promising in their opening game.
Chennaiyin FC will remember their heroics from last season at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati and will want to repeat something very similar come Friday.
