Bengaluru vs Goa H2H
Bengaluru FC to win: Why is this a good bet?
- BFC have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches
- They have moved up to the 6th place in the table with 22 points
- Goa are unbeaten in their last 6
- They have also drawn 5 of their last 6 matches
- The Gaurs are at the 4th place with 27 points
Bengaluru FC find themselves in a tricky situation. Not only do they need to win their remaining 2 matches, but they need to ensure that Goa, Hyderabad, or NorthEast United do not win any of their upcoming ties either.
A couple of wins brings them up to 28 points – 1 ahead of the 27 points shared by the three teams mentioned above. However, if any of those sides manage to win a game, it’s mathematically game over for the Blues.
Recently, Bengaluru FC beat the in-form Mumbai City FC by 4-2 on Monday. In what was one of their best performances this season, Sunil Chhetri scored a brace to help the team get the much-needed 3 points.
Before that, they had lost to ATK Mohun Bagan and also drew against Chennaiyin and Hyderabad FC. Clearly, it seems to be the classic case of ‘too little, too late’ for them as they now need to rely on fate to get the job done.
FC Goa, one foot in the playoffs
With 27 points, FC Goa are all but there in the final four. They just need one more win from their remaining two games to seal the deal. Of course, if they can’t manage this and should the Nizams or the Highlanders win, they may be knocked out of the top four.
Interestingly, their final two games against Bengaluru and Hyderabad will be the deciding ones to see who reaches the playoffs.
They last beat Odisha FC by 3-1 but only after settling for draws 6 consecutive times. A win or two in any of those matches would have seen them through to the playoffs already.
These ties came against Chennaiyin, Mumbai City, NorthEast United, and SC East Bengal.
Of course, it is not an impossible ask of FC Goa to beat these teams, especially with the likes of Igor Angulo present in their ranks. However, they have faltered a bit of late, giving Bengaluru the perfect opportunity to deliver yet another upset.
Over 2.5 goals in the match: Why is this a good bet?
Bengaluru’s strikers are finally waking up while Goa’s are already woke, firing on all cylinders. Expect this game to be a goalscoring affair with many goals from both the teams.
