Apollo Tyres backed Minerva Punjab FC who have been in a hunt for their maiden Hero I-League title travel to Tamil Nadu for their Round 17 Match scheduled to play against Chennai based Chennai City FC.
The Home team who have not had a favourable season this time are surrently placed 9th in the 10 team league just above youngsters Indian Arrows with a single point different and having played 1 game extra. Having been steamrolled by Kolkata giants East Bengal by a whooping 7-1 scorline, V Soundrarajan’s men will surely look to leave no stone unturned to keep up their hopes of surviving religation since they had recently further strengthened their team with foreign flavours like Donghyen Kim (Korea) and Aleksandar Rakic (Serbia) to do some midfield duties and sharpen the attack as well along with the free-flowing Frenchman Jean Joachim. A win would see the Green & Yellow’s hop directly to the 7th spot in the table which would safeguard their stand in the league.
Meantime Mohali based Minerva Punjab FC who recently changed based to refurbished Tau Devi Lal Stadium, Panchkula have retained their pole position in the League, Divided by just 2 points and 1 games in hand, the Warriors of Punjab will surely leave no stone unturned to bag as many points as possible in the remaining 2 games. The addition of Nepalese No. 1 custodian Kiran Limbu and Ivory Coast midfielder Bazie Armand in the January transfer window will too shoulder the responsibility of maintaining the blues title hopes as Bhutanese Chencho Gyeltshen remains the torch bearer to lead the blues to their maiden Hero I-League title.
