Indian Super League playoffs scenarios: Which of the top six teams can qualify and how

With 79 matches played in the Indian Super League (ISL), the four playoff qualifiers are yet to be identified. Which of the top six teams are favoured to make it, and what do they need to do to get there?

Bengaluru FC (31 from 16)

Remaining: Goa (h) - Feb 21, Jamshedpur (a) - Feb 27

Jamshedpur's defeat to Pune on Saturday confirmed Bengaluru's place in the last four. While they'd still want to finish top, they can afford to experiment and rest a few regulars in their remaining fixtures. Delhi Dynamos...

Bengaluru FC train ahead of the AFC Cup clash vs Altyn Asyr.
Bengaluru FC are unbeaten and at the top of the table

Can Nelo Vingada win Blasters' fans over?

Nelo Vingada has had a lot of success in his career. His last major triumph, though, came in 2010, when he led FC Seoul to the K-League title. Since then, he has managed 86 matches - for Chinese club Dalian Shide, the Iran...

In the end, the score read FC Goa 5-1 NorthEast United FC, but it could have been anything, really.

It could have been a badminton score if Goa had taken most of their chances.

Five minutes before Ferran Corominas opened the scoring for Goa with an brilliant finish, defender Carlos Pena won a foul for a push in his own box. Had the ref not seen it as a push, the Spaniard would have been penalised for a ludicrously silly handball. NorthEast would have won a penalty, and the hosts might never have...

Chencho Gyeltshen's spectacular strike could mark the start of something special at Bengaluru

Chencho Gyeltshen scores with an acrobatic effort for Bengaluru against NorthEast.
Chencho scores with an acrobatic effort for Bengaluru against NorthEast.

Two minutes into injury time against NorthEast United in Guwahati on Wednesday, Bhutan's Chencho Gyeltshen soared in the air, turned his body upside down and met Sunil Chhetri's header near the NorthEast penalty spot with a precise back-volley to salvage a point that maintained Bengaluru's unbeaten start to the Indian Super League (ISL) season.

Yet, this wasn't the only reason this goal was special. It points to a bigger role Chencho can play for Bengaluru for the rest of the season. In fact, the...

W2W4: ISL resumes with Maharashtra derby, Kochi party

Pune have been unbeaten in Mumbai since 2014

The Indian Super League (ISL) will resume on Wednesday after an international break, and the first nine matches have already produced their share of upsets and breakout performances at either end of the points table. 

What are the things to watch for when Delhi Dynamos host ATK to kick-start the next phase of matches?
