Kerala Blasters Team News:
The 2020–21 Kerala Blasters FC season will be the seventh season in the history of Indian Super League, since their establishment in 2014. The 2019-20 edition of the ISL was not the best of outings for the Kerala Blasters.
The last two seasons have ended up in heart-break for the Kerala Blasters, ending up on 9th in 2018-19 and seventh in 2019-20. The club management has opted for a ground-up rebuild. There was collateral damage as well with top goalscorer Bartholomew Ogbeche, being released along with head coach Eelco Schattorie.
In the 2020-21 ISL season, there have been as many as 13 new signings, with several more expected before the league starts. KBFC-team has a great blend of youth and experience along with a proven coach in Kibu Vicuna.
They seem like one of the most balanced teams in the Indian top-flight on paper. Despite partying ways with their defensive lynchpin Sandesh Jhingan, they have bolstered their backline with two solid foreign imports in Zimbabwean Costa Nhamoinesu and former PSG defender Bakary Kone.
They also roped in left-back Nishu Kumar from Bengaluru FC on a four-year deal and made him the highest-paid Indian defender of all-time. Spanish holding midfielder Vicente Gomez penned a bumper three-year contract in the summer and will be extremely crucial to the team’s progression this season.
Their stellar young trio of Sahal Abdul Samad, Rahul KP and Jeakson Singh has already grabbed eyeballs and will be keen on nailing down a starting spot in the team. KBFC has a biggest signing of English striker Gary Hooper, who is a former Celtic and Norwich City front-man is a lethal goal-poacher and has netted over 200 goals in his decade-long professional career.
NEUFC Team News:
The 2020–21 NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) season will be the seventh season in the history of Indian Super League since their establishment in 2014. Although the team recently qualified for the playoffs (in the 2018-19 season), it has finished bottom of the table twice. The team is coached by the newly appointed Spaniard Gerard Nus for the 2020-21 ISL season. He is the youngest head-coach in the ISL, and will be looking to make his mark in his first job as a head coach since leaving the Ghana national team in 2017. He has a lot of experience in his career as coach.
Attacking midfielder Federio Gallego will continue for a third successive season while the management has roped in fresh six overseas faces, namely Benjamin Lambot, Dylan Fox, Khassa Camara, Luis Machado, Idrissa Sylla, and Kwesi Appiah. Striker Kwesi Appiah, who has Premier League and Championship experience from England, is the biggest signing for the new campaign. Idrissa Sylla and Luis Machado add depth to its attack. Britto PM and VP Suhair join NEUFC after a successful season with Mohun Bagan in the I-League. Mizoram-born Lalkhawpuimawia was among the goals at Churchill Brothers last season.
Kerala Blasters vs NorthEast United FC Prediction
The analytics shows that NorthEast United FC has clear supremacy over Kerala Blasters FC. In KBFC-team, top goalscorer Bartholomew Ogbeche were moved to Mumbai City FC team. So, it is a major departure for KBFC team. But, KBFC-team has arrival of an experienced head-coach Kibu Vicuna and the other signings of some talents players like Gary Hooper, Bakery Kone, Sahal Abdul Samad, Rahul KP and Seityasen Singh will be the advantage for their team.
