Jerry Lalrinzuala: The 19-year-old youngster didn’t enjoy the best start to the ISL campaign suffering a defeat against FC Goa. The youngster, however, is a threat with his pace and crossing ability and is likely to have a much better outing against NorthEast United.
Marcinho: Marcinho was one of NorthEast United’s star performers in their goalless draw with Jamshedpur FC. The Brazilian controlled NorthEast’s midfield using his technique and range of passing. The Brazilian attempted 49 passes, the most by any NorthEast United player in the match despite playing 76 minutes. He also set up his teammates with some inviting passes.
Raphael Augusto: Raphael Augusto impressed despite Chennaiyin FC losing their opening match against FC Goa. He scored a penalty and is likely to take most of Chennaiyin FC’s free kicks, giving him more chances of earning attacking points. Augusto attempted the most passes by a Chennai player in their opening match.
Odair Lopes: He was a threat from the wide positions using his pace and trickery. The Cape Verde winger was also tasked with taking corners further boosting his potential for attacking points. With Chennaiyin’s defence struggling in their opener, Odair can be a good pick for your fantasy teams.
Didika Ralte: Didika Ralte was heavily involved in NorthEast United’s opening match attempting 48 passes. Only Marcinho attempted more passes. The 23-year-old also came close to scoring on a couple of occasions. His all-round game can be highlighted by the fact that he also made two successful tackles.
Gregory Nelson: Nelson came on as a substitute and made a positive impact for Chennaiyin FC. Despite coming on as a substitute, he attempted the joint most shots by a Chennai player. His impact as a substitute means he is very like to start the match.
Danilo: Danilo was a big threat for NorthEast United with his clever movement. The Brazilian came closest to scoring after getting past two defenders, only to be denied by a superb save from Subrata Paul. With Chennaiyin’s defence struggling in their opener, Danilo can be a good pick for your fantasy teams.
Jeje Lalpekhlua: The highest Indian goal scorer made an impact in Chennai’s opening match winning the penalty for Augusto’s goal. Jeje attempted the joint most shots by a Chennai player in the match highlighting his offensive prowess.
