A LAID BACK HALF saw Pune City and Chennaiyin FC create few real chances as the scoreline read 0-0 at half-time.
CHENNAIYIN FC need only a draw to qualify for the Indian Super League (ISL) semi-finals and coach Marco Materazzi dismissed suggestions that an altered travel plan could leave them exhausted ahead of their crucial concluding league clash against FC Pune City in Pune on Saturday.
HIGH STAKES GAMES have big time consequences. Round 13 saw many teams seal their place in the semi-finals and many others bow out of the race to playoffs. And many individual players carried out big roles in determining that. We take a look at performances that either brought their fans vindication or heartbreak.
AS THE ISL REGULAR SEASON enters its very last round, we at TFG take a look at the last remaining four matches and try to predict who will end their campaign with a bang, who will fizzle out and who will extend their season with a place in the coveted playoffs.
A CLIMACTIC CONTEST brought NorthEast United's regular season to an end as they registered a competitive, dominant and at times nervous 3-2 victory over Pune City. This result has knocked the Stallions out of the race to the semi-finals, but the Highlanders' own top four hopes are depending on their vanquished opponents' victory in their last match of the campaign.
NORTHEAST UNITED came out swinging against Pune City at home in a game that is must-win for both teams to keep their semi-final hopes alive. At lemon break the Highlanders are leading 3-1 after dominating the Stallions throughout the first half, on the verge of breaking their opponents' top four dreams to pieces.
NORTHEAST UNITED FC and FC Pune City will be still eyeing Indian Super League (ISL) semi-finals qualifications when they play against each other here on Wednesday despite being in discomforting positions.
THIS IS IT. The ISL 2015 has untangled its story through many twists and turns over 12 rounds, produced many frontrunners and bottom-stuck unfortunates. But the race to top four has been close enough for every single team to still be in the race; at least mathematically. But Round 13 will bring down the hammer of certainty on many teams' hopes and despairs. And we at TFG are telling you how it's going to turn out.
ROUND 12 of the Indian Super League saw the fight for top 4 come to a head, for real. It had massive goalfests and it had gritty draws. There were serious, long term consequences as well, as at least three teams had their semi-final dreams crushed.
