    Hello and welcome!

    Kerala Blasters are aiming to reduce the gap that has opened up between the top six and the bottom four. A win here will go a long way in helping them catch up with the top half of the table and push for a knockout spot. FC Pune City have had a terrible season thus far and paying a visit to Kerala Blasters' home ground might not be what they would have hoped for at this juncture. 

    ISL 2018 Football, Kerala Blasters vs FC Pune City Football: David James spoke to the media in his pre-match press conference and bemoaned his team’s failure to get a win in their last outing against Jamshedpur FC. “It was a very good performance. I watched it again on video and it was a very good performance. It was another game that we haven’t won after a great performance. The spirit in the team is very good, very positive after that. But again, there is a bit of frustration because of the decisions that went against us,” he said.
