News Update: SportsTiger App
Chennaiyin will be up against the NorthEast United in the Indian Football League on Thursday. Although Chenniyin's hopes of reaching the semis are all but over as they lie at the eighth place in the points ladder with 18 points from 18 matches, NorthEast United have collected 26 points in 17 matches and are pretty much alive in the race to the final four and find themselves at the fourth place at this stage. While Chennaiyin would look to end the season on a high, NorthEast won't want to lose points either and end up tantalizingly close but far from the semis spot. Expect a thrilling contest at the GMC, Goa.

Chennaiyin did spoil Goa's fun a little bit as they scored twice against them to deny them all the three points, they would look to go one step further this time around against NorthEast and might just stick to the same XI. Anirudh Thapa remains uncertain for this match due to an injury.
NorthEast's Gurjinder Kumar received a red card in the 85th minute during their match against Odisha and hence won't play a part in this fixture. However, their key players remain available for selection for this game.
With a semifinal race no longer putting pressure on their heads, expect Chennaiyin to play a more fearless brand of football as they not only look to end the season on high but even play the perfect party spoilers. Meanwhile, NorthEast would have to keep winning here and prevent themselves to face a dangerous situation and regret later. Given its that kind of an evening for them, onus would be on them to perform and go for the three points.
