Can Sahal Abdul Samad Carry Kerala Blasters into Beating Chennaiyin FC?

Kerala Blasters’ Indian football players made a statement by decimating Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League (ISL). However, in their next match, they face a Chennaiyin FC side which has been a tough nut to crack so far. Among other news in ISL football today, we ask– can Sahal Abdul Samad carry Kerala Blasters into beating Chennaiyin?

In their latest Indian Super League football match, they beat the league leaders and title defenders – the Islanders – by 3-0. And Sahal Abdul Samad, Alvaro Vazquez, and Jorge Diaz were on target scoring these three goals for the Yellow Army.

Meanwhile, under Bozidar Bandovic, Chennaiyin have established themselves as a disciplined side which hardly offers any space at the back.

In particular, Serbian defender Slavko Damjanovic has been nothing short of a wall at the back. Also, Narayan Das alongside him is delivering consistently high-quality performances too.

So, no wonder Chennaiyin have the meanest defence in the league with just four goals conceded in six matches.

Kerala Blasters need to be at their best if they want to pick up the three points from Wednesday’s encounter. As such, a combination of collective and individual brilliance might help them get over the line.

And for inspiration, they have to look no further than their very own Sahal Abdul Samad.

The Keralite has been in brilliant form. Indeed, his volleyed goal against Mumbai City FC on Sunday has already accumulated over a million views on streaming platforms.

His skills include not just scoring goals preicesly but also showing confidence in dribbling past defenders. In fact, no Indian player has completed more dribbles in the ISL this season than Sahal, who has 12). He has also attempted 21 dribbles this campaign, again the most by an Indian.

Needless to say, he is a key weapon for Ivan Vukomanovic, who made a football prediction, to unlock Chennaiyin’s defence.

His vision, coupled with his goal-scoring ability, can be lethal and we hope the 24-year-old grabs headlines once again.

One must note that Adrian Luna and Alvaro Vasquez are also in good form. After toppling the league leaders, especially, their confidence will be skyrocketing.

All in all, though, it will be an interesting match-up between a rugged Chennaiyin FC and an emergent Kerala Blasters.
