The top two teams in the Indian Super League go up against each other as FC Goa travel to take on Bengaluru FC in the regular season on Thursday.
FC Goa are currently the leaders of the Indian Super League and they will be looking to showcase why they are the most fearsome team to go up against. The franchise has always been consistent in the tournament, and they are playing fantastic football. With Ferran Corominas scoring goals for fun yet again, the attacking philosophy they have adopted has worked really well for them so far. They made it to the semi-finals last time as well and will be looking to do better this year.
Meanwhile, Bengaluru FC were the only undefeated team in the league for the longest time but things have come crumbling down for them recently. In the last five games, they’ve won one and lost three which saw them lose their place on top of the league. They still have the best squad of anyone in the competition and if needed can turn things around, but confidence is shaken right now. Captain Sunil Chhetri will be looking to prove why he deserves to get his hands on the ISL trophy, after being the runner’s up in the last campaign.
When and where?
This match is to be played at Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru, India. The ground has a capacity of 25,810.
