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. Gurmeet Singh Chahal on the other hand has recently been the number one shot stopper for the team ahead of the experienced Subhasish Roy Chowdhury. He has been good so far making 14 saves and 9 clearences.
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 presence. Another key presence for 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.
As per sources bfc have no injuries. On the other hand Appiah is set to miss this match as well due to his injury.

Head to Head
Both teams have faced each other 9 times till now, out of which BFC won 5 times, NEUFC won 1 time and 3 matches were draws.
Looking at the records, BFC looks better then the highlanders but looking at the present form, NEUFC should have a hard fought win or atleast a draw, but nothing less than that.
