The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 enters a new phase with the start of matchday 15 with the clash between Kerala Blasters FC and Punjab FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi. Punjab FC resumed their ISL campaign after the mid-season break with a 3-1 win over Bengaluru FC at home.
It was only their second win in their first top-flight campaign and the team will be confident going into the Yellow Army away from home.
Kerala Blasters FC had beaten Punjab FC by a narrow margin of 1-0, thanks to a penalty from Dimitrios Diamantakos in the previous match between the two teams in New Delhi. Therefore, Ivan Vukomanovic and his team will look to achieve the league double against Punjab FC and, in the process, become the first team to do so against them in the ISL.
Vukomanovic’s boys need to recover from the 2-1 defeat against Odisha FC, which has complicated the dynamics at the top of the points table. They will back their odds in the comfort of their home, against a team that has yet to win in an away game this season.
