Must Have Players
Player Selection Strategy
- The hosts are the stronger side defensively and hence they should be backed. Defenders like Reagan Singh and Mato Grgic are must have picks.
- Both teams have got some attacking potential in their midfield and forward lines. Ensure that you have the quartet of Ogbeche, Hume, Gallego and Borges.
- With Marcelinho suspended, the Pune City midfield will be toothless. Hence, it is safe to back the North East defence.
- A 3-4-3 formation will suit this team best.
C & VC Choices: Ogbeche and Gallego
Alternate C & VC: Hume, Robin, Borges and Kuruniyan
