The total goals for the team are 12 and against the team are 13. In the last match, they played against the team SC East Bengal (SCEB) on January 9th, in which BFC has been stuck with none, while the opponent team has managed to score one goal, which ended in a defeat for BFC. Prior to this failure, they played against the team Mumbai City FC (MCFC) on January 5th, in which BFC has scored one goal, while the opponent team has managed to score 3 goals, which ended in a defeat for BFC. Their losing streak is 4 and winning streak is 3. Their form in the last 5 matches is L L L L W. Unlike the last matches, they should keep up the winning streaks in the upcoming matches, in order to move forward in the league standings of Indian Super League – 2020-21. Let’s see whether they will win this match or not.

Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United FC have squared off night times in the ISL, with the Bangalore outfit dominating the battle with five wins. NorthEast United has only managed to beat The Blues once, while the other three fixtures ended in a draw.

NorthEast United FC come into the clash on the back of a six-game winless streak. The Highlanders have lost three out of their previous four games, despite making a good start to their ISL 2020-21 campaign. They currently occupy the seventh spot on the overall standings with 11 points.

Their opponents, Bengaluru FC are on a poor run of their own with four straight losses. The former ISL champions are placed sixth on the ISL table with 12 points from ten matches.

Both the sides come into the encounter on the back of consecutive losses and will aim for a turn of fortunes. With their attacking firepower, Bengaluru FC will look to get the better of the Highlanders.

NEUFC vs BFC Match Prediction

Both the teams have very similar statistics in terms of goals scored and conceded. While NorthEast United FC and Bengaluru FC have scored 12 goals each, the ‘home team’ have conceded 1 more goal as compared to the visitors. We predict a win for Bengaluru FC as they aim to get back on the right track.

Bengaluru FC

The Blues have several new faced in the squad such as Manuel Onwu who comes in as a replacement for Miku.
Head coach, 
Carles Cuadrat has recently brought in Ashqiue Kuruniya to fill in the flanks. Eugeneson Lyndoh is back in the team after a stint in ATK last season. Raphael Augusto has also joined Bengaluru from Chennaiyin FC.

Keeping aside Miku, Bengaluru will also be without Xisco and Alex Barrera who have left the club.

The semi-finalists of 2018-19 season are also without quite a few important figureheads this year. Eelco Schatorri is now the new manager of Kerala Blasters and has brought along Bartholomew Ogbeche, TP Rehnesh and Seityasen Singh to strengthen Kerala.
Northeast United is now under the managerial leadership of Robert Jarni. Players such as  Asamoah Gyan, Maximilliano Barrera, and Milan Singh are new personnel who have been brought in by the club.

Last meeting (BFC 2-2 NEUFC)

The last ISL meeting between the sides took place on December 8, 2020 at the Fatorda Stadium. The teams played out a 2-2 draw. NorthEast United’s Luis Machado opened the scoring in the third minute before Juanan netted an early equaliser 10 minutes later. BFC then inched ahead after Udanta Singh scored in the 70th minute. However, the lead was short-lived as Machado scored his second of the night to salvage a draw for the Highlanders.

NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) – IMP Players

  • Subhashish Roy Choudhury, who is a goalkeeper. He was a key player of last season as he made a lot of saves to keep them alive in many games. He was mostly up to the task, barring a few fumbles. 
  • Luis Machado, who is a forward player. The Highlander faithful had a lot of hopes on the Portuguese winger, will add quality to the attack.
  • Kwesi Appiah, who is a forward player. Bullied the Mumbai City defense right from the word go and also scored NorthEast United’s first goal of the season from the penalty spot. 
  • Idrissa Sylla, who is forward player. He was introduced into the game to kill time but he did show glimpses of his class with some brilliant touches and turns.
  • Benjamin Lambot, who is a defender player. He showed his class today with his impeccable timing and interception. He was one of the main reasons why NorthEast United won the previous match of ISL-2020-21. 

Bengaluru FC (BFC) – IMP Players

  • Gurdeep Singh Sandhu, who is a first goalkeeper to cross 10 clean-sheets in a single season.
  • Juanan Gonzalez, who is a defender player. His arrival in 2016. He partnered with John Johnson central defence and has most recently partnered fellow Spaniard Albert Serran as well.
  • Sunil Chhetri, who is a forward player and skipper of BFC-team. He is a second-highest goal scorer in the history of ISL with 39 goals in 74 appearances.
  • Udanta Singh, who is a forward player and he scored 22 goals in the last season ISL league.
  • Erik Paartalu, who is a midfielder. He has a great passing ability and the fact that he is able to dictate matches with his physicality has been key for to the success of the club.
