Mumbai City FC vs Bengaluru FC H2H
Bengaluru FC to win: Why is this a good bet?
- Winning market at really high odds for the Blues
- Need to win at least 2 matches to stay alive in the league
- BFC have lost just 1 of their last 5
- Mumbai City may be without Hugo Boumous for this game
- The Islanders have won just 1 of their last 3 games
Bengaluru FC are just a mere defeat away from not being able to reach the ISL playoffs this season. This will definitely be more disappointing than usual, given that they have made it to the final four every year they played in the league.
They recently lost to ATK Mohun Bagan but only after holding Chennaiyin FC to a goalless draw. The side has managed just 4 wins so far in the ISL 2020-21 while conceding an astounding 21 goals – 7 higher than last season. More than that, they have managed to win just 1 game in the last 11 played.
The Blues have now just 3 games remaining and any result but a win is simply unacceptable at this point. This is not an entirely impossible ask, especially with Sunil Chettri and Udanta Singh in the ranks.
On the other hand, Mumbai City FC will now look to rest its key performers ahead of the playoffs. With 34 points, they have comfortably breezed into the next round.
They last held FC Goa to a scintillating 3-3 draw – a match that saw 2 goals in the final minute of the game. However, Boumous did draw some flak in the match and will be suspended for the next few fixtures.
But that shouldn’t concern Sergio Lobera that much, given the fine form of his other talismans like Adam Le Fondre and Bartholomew Ogbeche. That said, the Islanders did lose to NorthEast United a couple of weeks ago by 2-1 so the precedent to beat them is there.
Logically, Mumbai are more likely to come out on the top here, but if there is a time or a place to bet on the underdogs to do the impossible, this is it.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
Bengaluru will need to score to win while Mumbai, given their phenomenal form, are bound to score. Plus, MCFC’s defence may not be as sharp as it once was.
They have conceded 7 goals in their last 4, which is more than 60% of the total goals conceded by them this entire season. Bengaluru have a chance to make some amends here and get some goals. For the same reason, we predict this match will see over 2.5 goals.
