FC Pune City are yet to keep a clean sheet, and conceding goals has become a major problem for them since they don't quite have the firepower in attack to compensate for defensive lapses.
FC Pune City's struggle at home continued as they were held to a 1-1 draw against a spirited Chennaiyin FC in an Indian Super League (ISL) encounter at Mohali on Sunday.
Records show that Chennaiyin FC have never lost against FC Pune City, winning three out of the four matches. In the other clash, both teams shared the spoils.
NorthEast United have taken 10 points from the available 18 so far, which seems just about satisfactory. However, considering their six matches have come in a space of 20 days, their performance so far has been commendable.
What would be more heartening for the Chennaiyin camp is that David Succi is the fifth different goalscorer for the defending champions who have netted six times so far.
