NorthEast United FC will take the field against Kerala Blasters FC in their Group D fixture at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati on Saturday.

Both sides will be aiming for their first victory of their respective campaigns as the two Hero ISL sides are lurking at the bottom of the points table.

The Highlanders were defeated soundly in both their games while the Blasters were held by Sudeva, and went down to Odisha FC in their opening two games.

It will be an exciting and a competitive match as both teams will be fielding their academy players, and a win for either side piles misery on the other.

With some promising names such as Muhammed Ajsal, Ebindas Yesudasan in the Tomasz Tchorz-led side, the Blasters will be ready to give a tough fight to NorthEast United FC.

NorthEast United FC’s match against Kerala Blasters FC is scheduled for 6pm IST and will be telecasted live on Sports18, Sports18 HD, with live streaming available on Voot Select.
