Chennai FC, on the other hand, are comfortably in seventh position, just two points behind fourth-placed Mumbai City FC.
Both teams come into the game behind indifferent form, meaning the match could potentially serve as a launchpad for the Hero ISL to climb to the points table.
With five draws in 15 matches, teams have historically proved difficult to separate. Out of the 10 games that resulted, Northeast United FC have won six times, with Marina Machans winning four.
Vladimir Common and Ariel Borisiuk will be available for selection for Chennai FC, the pair returning from injury. The rest of the team is also available for selection.
Bozidar Bandovic’s side have won one, drawn one and lost three of their previous five matches. After a disappointing draw in their last match against Hyderabad FC, Chennai FC will be looking to get back on track to win.
Northeast United FC:
The Guwahati-based team has entered the game in terrible form as it has not won a single match in four weeks. With only eight fixtures left, the Highlanders will want to use this encounter as a starting point for a strong end to the season.
