ISL 2016 Semifinal 2: Kerala Blasters vs Delhi Dynamos Match Preview

Kerala Blasters reached the semifinals in the most dramatic fashion possible. They left the job till the last match in the group to make it to the ISL 2016 semifinals. In the last group match, they edged past NorthEast United FC with a scoreline of 1-0. And that win ensured them a second spot in the group stages of the ISL 2016. It has been incredible how fortunes can change in this tournament, and we might just be prepared for something special in the upcoming between the Kerala outfit and Delhi Dynamos.

Delhi Dynamos have lacked that sparked in the last group league match which has seen them going through to the semifinals much easily. However, that doesn’t mean that Delhi Dynamos have little chance of going through to the final of the ISL 2016. They have a formidable attacking line-up, and wISL ith Florent Malouda in the midfield, they pose areal threat to the defence of the home side. Also, Marcelinho possesses a greatthreat for the defence of Kerala as he has been instrumental in many of the goals scored by Delhi Dynamos.

They have kept their goal intact in both the matches while Kerala Blasters lost the away game 2-0. So Kerala Blasters need to work really hard in order get the better of the opponents in the ISL 2016 semifinal 2.

It is reported that both the teams will be able to field their strongest possible eleven with no news of injuries coming up. This means that a lot will depend upon the performance of Mehtab Hossain in the midfield as far as Kerala Blasters are concerned. On the other hand, Florent Malouda will have to be at his best in order to drive his team forward and Gianluca Zambrotta will be looking banking on him a lot in that department of the game. Also one thing that Zambrotta would like to point out is the lack of consistency. That will be the thing in the mind of the thinktank of the Kerala Blasters clash as they prepare for the match against Delhi Dynamos in the ISL 2016 Semifinal 2 in their home ground.
