IM­PHAL: I-league lead­ers Chen­nai City will hope to avoid a po­ten­tial ba­nana peel in their quest for the ti­tle when they face hosts NE­ROCA FC at the Khu­man Lam­pak Sta­dium here on Mon­day. With 33 points from 15 games, Chen­nai could go four points clear of sec­ond-placed Real Kash­mir with a win here.

With trips to Shil­long and Goa com­ing up for the Ak­bar Nawas­coached side in the sea­son run-in, Chen­nai can ill-af­ford to drop points against NE­ROCA, es­pe­cially with East Ben­gal too breath­ing down their necks. The Kolkata gi­ants are five points be­hind hav­ing played a game less.

NE­ROCA are in a con­test with Mo­hun Ba­gan for the fifth place in the stand­ings.
