The league leaders are by far the best team in the league. The have a lot of talent up front and their defence in rock solid. There are a very few weak links in the team and are the favourites to win. Forwards like Miku, second top scorer, Chettri and Udanta will really cause trouble for Popovic’s side. Erik Paartalu has been rock solid and Singh Sandhi is as reliable as ever.

FC Pune City

The Stallions also boast great attacking prowess due to the likes of Marcelo and Emiliano Alfaro. Marcos Tebar has been a consistent figure in the middle of the park. The defence is not what you would call good but Spanish defender Rafael Lopez can be looked upon for help.
