The 11th round of the Indian Super League will feature Chennaiyin FC FC locking horns against Atletico de Kolkata at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Chennai.

Chennaiyin are coming into this match with a win over Pune City before which they went five matches in a row without registering a win. However, the last win has boosted the morale of the Marco Materazzi coached side, with the gaffer pointing out that they are unbeaten in their last four home matches.
As for Atletico de Kolkata, if they are to qualify for the semi-finals, they akin to their rivals cannot afford any slip-ups. In quality players like Hume, Postiga, Javi Lara and Doutie, the side possesses enough firepower to trouble the Chennai backline but whether they can maintain the intensity over the entire course of the match remains a question.
Both team have four games left in the bank, but a defeat in this encounter could mean curtains for either of them for they are currently separated by just one point in the table, while a draw will help neither team’s push towards the top four.
Yet, it was Kokata’s head coach Jose Molina who seemed confident of making it to the play-offs when he was quoted as saying to ESPN in the pre-match interaction that, “The point difference between all the teams is too close. If I was thinking that we could be top of the table with 25 points right now, then that is rubbish. We are in the position that we deserve. I think we are in a good position. We will continue to keep fighting. We will fight to remain in the top four.”
