ISL Week 2 Discussion Thread

Wow, what a week it was. Only the first week has gone by and already there is plenty to talk about in season three of the Indian Super League. The season began with a tame match between NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters. Katsumi Yusa's goal was what began the Indian domestic season with a bang. The following days saw more action as the unique league featured a game every day. Each side played and all but one venue saw action. With Week 1 now out of the way we now enter Week 2 and it is NorthEast United who top the table but Mumbai City are close with both sides being equal on points after two matches. Atletico de Kolkata and Delhi Dynamos finish the top 4 while Pune, Chennaiyin, Kerala Blasters, and Goa end Week 1 outside the top 4.

The second week will begin with the Kerala Blasters hosting Delhi Dynamos at the Nehru Stadium in Kochi. Steve Coppell's side will be pushing for their first victory of the season after going down twice last week. Delhi Dynamos meanwhile will be coming into the match off a 3-1 victory over the reigning champions from 2015, Chennaiyin FC, away from home. Zambrotta's side surprised all and will be looking to take another three points before returning home.

Monday will see the first day off of the season before the ISL madness returns on Tuesday. Mumbai City will host their second match of the season against Atletico de Kolkata. Mumbai City are doing very this season already with two wins from their first two matches. Players like Forlan, Delfederico, and Valpato have began very well for the Mumbai side but Kolkata will look to spoil the party. After drawing their opening match to Chennaiyin, Molina's side managed to defeat the Kerala Blasters and thus get their first victory of the season.

Wednesday will see Pune City host NorthEast United. For NorthEast United this will be their fourth match of the season already while Pune City will be playing their third. Nelo Vingada's men will look to return to winning ways after the defeat to Mumbai City last weekend while Pune City will want to build on their last minute winner they had away to Goa recently. Habas will still be suspended for this one.

Thursday will witness the reigning champions Chennaiyin look to bounce back from their home opener defeat last week when they host the runners-up from last season, Goa. FC Goa will be ready and looking for revenge after the way the 2015 Final ended in controversy. The match should be a good prospect with both teams needing the three points as well.

The Week will end on Friday with Kerala Blasters hosting Mumbai City before Saturday sees Delhi Dynamos host their first match of the season against NorthEast United.
