Here’s how you can bet on the Indian Super League 2016 live with bet365
One of the few complains that spectators had for the first edition of the ISL was that the football on offer was often quite drab and lacked enough quality. A lot of very good Indian players who were contracted to I-League teams were refused permission to feature in the ISL in its first edition. The organizers managed to strike a deal with the I-League clubs to let their players feature in ISL-2. Indian skipper Sunil Chettri and top draw India internationals such as Robin Singh and Eugeneson Lyngdoh featured in the ISL last season and did pretty well.
The schedule for ISL 2016 is confirmed by the organizers and is set to start on October 1. The second edition of the tournament ran for a longer duration compared to the first season and one would expect more of the same. It is expected that there will be a total of 56 league games before we move on to the two-legged semi-finals followed by the grand finale. The venue for the final will be decided later and all matches are likely to kick-off at 7 pm IST.
Chennaiyin FC stole a thrilling victory in last season’s finale with Stiven Mendoza finding the net in added time to send the team in yellow into a frenzy. Earlier in the game, Bruno Pelissari’s early second half strike had been cancelled out by Thongkhosiem Haokip just before the hour mark. Jofre put Goa ahead in the 87th minute but Chennaiyin equalized through an own goal from Laxmikant Kattimani in the final minute of regulation time.
Mendoza was on fire for the champions last year and has a total of 17 goals spread across two ISL seasons. Iain Hume, man of the tournament in the first edition, was a bright spot for Atletico last season. The Canadian has 16 ISL strikes while Brazil’s Elano, who also played for Chennaiyin FC, has found the back of the net 12 times. Chennaiyin forward Jeje Lalpekhlua is the highest scoring Indian in the ISL with 10 goals. Mendoza and Hume are expected to light up ISL 2016 as well with their goal-scoring exploits.
ISL betting has a huge market with a lot of potential. Outrights for the Indian Super League 2016 have not been announced yet but they could be out any moment now. You could expect an update on this page once the odds are out. Unlike last year when the teams did not know which players will be plying their trade where, there is a bit of stability this time around when it comes to the playing staff.
