Chennai, Jan 12 (CNMSPORTS) Both FC Pune City and Chennaiyin FC will be without their coaches at the touchlines when they meet in a crucial Indian Super League (ISL) encounter at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Saturday.
Pune got four points from their last two matches while coach Ranko Popovic was serving a four-match ban. However, the visitors will now also have to overcome the absence of their talisman Marcelinho.
The Brazilian is Pune City's leading goal scorer with six strikes, including a hat-trick, and has four assists to boot.
He will, however, remain suspended for the next clash after accumulating four bookings. He has missed a match before -- against Bengaluru FC -- when he was not fully fit and was left on the bench, and it showed as Bengaluru FC walked away with full points.
