Bengaluru FC Vs NorthEast United FC: Match Preview


Bengaluru FC host NorthEast United FC this tuesday as both teams target all three points. Both teams are coming back from wins in their respective last matches.

Bengaluru FC will be eyeing all three points once again as they face the Highlanders continuing the winning momentum which started after beating CFC in their last match.

NorthEast United FC on the other hand will be keen to keep their unbeaten run intact and will surely target all three points.

3 Indian Players to look out for

One of the highest ever rated Indian forward Sunil Chhetri of BFC is undoubtedly the one to look out for, looking at his goalscoring capacities and leading the team from the front. Apuia Ralte of NEUFC is one of the best youngsters to be playing the league currently and one of the best defensive midfielder in the league undoubtedly. Rocharzella on the other hand is a winger with a high goal poaching instinct, which is already proven as he was the highest Indian goal scorer of the I league last season, which could also be seen looking at his goal in the last match.

3 Foreign Players to look out for

One of the man leading his side by both his personality and his performance is Benjamin Lambot of NEUFC. He has been very solid as wall in the Northeast United FC defence and one of the key factor of their unbeaten run. Another key factor of the unbeaten run of NEUFC is their defensive midfielder Khassa Camara. ‘The tank’ as he’s known as has been very solid in holding the midfield and helping his defensive line at times. The last but not the least is the proven man of BFC, their midfield general, Dimas Delgado who can make things happen at will in the midfield and plays a key role for his team.


Bengaluru FC doesn’t have any injuries as concerned. NorthEast United FC on the other hand seems to have Federico Gallego and Subhasish Roy Chaudhary injured.
