NorthEast United FC vs Bengaluru FC H2H
- The first leg of this fixture in the ISL 2020-21 was tied 2-2
Bengaluru FC to win: Why is this a good bet?
- BFC are superior in the head to head statistics
- They have a stronger pedigree and history in the Indian Super League
- The Blues are winless in their last 4, seeking a strong resurgence
- NEUFC are in a similar rut with 6 games without a win
Things have not gone right for Bengaluru FC in the last few matches. Carles Cuadrat has left the building and the team is now being coached in the interim by Naushad Moosa.
To add further to the woes, the Blues have lost their last 4 matches – a very first for them considering that this is a team that has made it to the playoffs in every season of the Indian Super League till date.
But with every game that passes by, it is looking increasingly difficult for them to pull this feat again. They most recently lost to SC East Bengal – before that, they were knocked down by Mumbai City FC, Jamshedpur FC, and ATK Mohun Bagan.
Of course, this is a team that is more than capable of turning this tide around but right now, it needs to navigate the crisis. Sitting at the 6th place with 12 points, things are not all that bad for them.
Similarly, a fortune revival is needed for Gerard Nus’s men too. After starting off well, the Highlanders have gone 6 games without registering a win – a feat that has brought them down to the 7th place with 11 points.
Their recent results include defeats to Hyderabad FC and ATK, coupled with draws against Chennaiyin FC and Odisha FC.
Even in terms of defence and offence, the two teams are eerily similar – BFC have conceded 13 while scoring 12; NorthEast United have conceded 14 while scoring the same number of goals.
In many ways, this is an evenly matched tie but we will give Bengaluru the edge here owing to their superior experience and form in the ISL.
Both teams to score: Why is this a good bet?
The two teams are desperate for a win and the stakes are getting higher with each game passing by. Neither of them are that good at defence, leading us to conclude that we may see some goals from both the sides. For the same reason, we expect this game to see over 2.5 goals. It has been the case for the Highlanders in 2 of their last 3 league games, BFC have seen the same trend but in 2 of their last 5 matches.
