Fantasy Football: NorthEast United FC vs Bengaluru FC Dream11 Prediction ISL 2019 | NEU vs BFC
The 37th of the Hero Indian Super League will see NorthEast United welcome Bengaluru FC at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati. NorthEast have failed to capitalise on their good start to the ISL 2019-20 campaign and now sit fifth place, 3 points adrift of the top four. Bengaluru FC knows that a win today will take them on top of the ISL. They sit on the 3rd spot with 3 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat.
A draw against champions Bengaluru FC on matchday 1 and a victory at home against Odisha set up a good start for the season for NorthEast. However, since then they have won only against Hyderabad FC and drew FC Goa, Mumbai City FC and Jamshedpur FC.
Last week they got drubbed at home against ATK by 3 goals to nil. The result will leave a few concerns in the mind of Robert Jami as their defence was exposed. The last match against Chennaiyin FC was scheduled for cancelled and will be rescheduled.
In attack, the highlanders have scored 8 goals in 7 games, with three goals coming from Asamoah Gyan. However, the Ghanaian is unavailable tonight. With two goals and one assist, German Panagiotis Triadis is considered an attacking threat. The highlanders will be boosted with the return of midfielder Federico Gallego and will hope he is as influential he was last season.
Defending champions Bengaluru FC’s unbeaten record this season came to an end when Mumbai City FC beat them in a 2-3 thriller at the Shree Kanteervara Stadium on Sunday. Carlos Cudrat’s side started with three disappointing draws against NorthEast United at home, FC Goa and Jamshedpur away.
However, Bengaluru FC players turned up against southern rivals Chennaiyin FC and Kerala Blasters. They won 3-0 and 1-0 respectively with Sunil Chettri scoring two goals in two matches. Chettri then scored against in the second minute as they were held 1-1 against Hyderabad FC.
They won a close match against Odisha with a solitary goal from Juanan Fernández. Against Mumbai, they equalised two times once from Grcic’s own goal and Chhetri’s penalty. With the match headed for another draw, Rowlin Borges defected Subhasish’s shot to win the match in the 90th minute
Despite the defeat, BFC is still the best defensive team in the league. They have conceded only 5 goals in 8 matches. However, their main concern has been attacking. Sunil Chettri is their top scorer with 4 goals in 8 games. Udanta Singh has 1 goal and new boy Ashique Kuriyan still has not opened his account.
