Bengaluru FC vs NorthEast United FC kicks off at 7.30 PM IST on Monday . The match will be held at Shree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru. The game will be shown live on Star Sports Network, while the live streaming is available via HotStar and Jio TV. Each team will play a total of 18 matches – 1 home and 1 away against every other opponent in the league.
Bengaluru FC will begin the season as defending champions, having won the ISL crown in the 2018-19 season courtesy of an extra time winner from Rahul Bheke against FC Goa. Led by Sunil Chhetri, BFC will look to successfully defend their title and look well equipped to do so, after retaining their core group and making astute additions in the transfer market. The likes of Chennaiyin FC, ATK and Kerala Blasters have also been active in the off season and the forthcoming edition of the ISL promises to be the most exciting season yet.
In the head-to-head stats, Bengaluru FC lead NorthEast United with three wins. Bengaluru FC moved to the ISL as two-time I-League winners in 2017. During their opening campaign BFC suffered a 0-1 defeat away to NorthEast United, but got the better of the Highlanders 2-1 in the home match. Meanwhile, in the last campaign, the Blues drew 1-1 away from home and claimed a 2-1 win at home during the league stages. And in the semi-finals of ISL 2018-19, NorthEast United won their home leg 2-1 and BFC claimed a 3-0 win in the second leg to win 4-2 on aggregate.
Bengaluru head coach Cuadrat said it’s “strange” that none of the teams have been able to retain their title in the ISL.
“I tell my players to be competitive so that we can reach the play-offs. No team has won it twice. It is a strange thing. It’s not our job to defend the title but right now (the job is) to reach the play-offs. After that we will do our best to win the title,” said the Spaniard.
On the other hand, NorthEast United’s new head coach Robert Jarni is confident of a winning start at the Sree Kanteerava stadium.
One of India’s biggest tournaments, Hero Indian Super League features teams from 10 cities whose fans pack entire stadiums to cheer for their squad.
