CFC vs BFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Bengaluru FC could become the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season when they face reigning champions Chennaiyin FC in an away match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, in Chennai, on Saturday evening (IST).
Chennaiyin FC: A season to forget
After the last season’s final, one team that had all the reasons to feel bad and pessimist was Bengaluru FC. After all, they were beaten 2-3 in the final by Chennaiyin FC.
While it was Marina Arena’s 2nd title-winning season, a tag which can only be matched by ATK in the history of the Indian Super League.
But look how this season has unravelled. The reigning champions are staring at the prospect of becoming the worst performing team ever played in the ISL.
This is not an exaggeration and the numbers are here to see for everybody. NorthEast United’s tally of 3 wins and 11 points during the 2017-18 season is the worst return for any team in ISL. While John Gregory’s men are sitting at the bottom with just one win and five points so far in the season.
Considering the form and the matches remaining in the season, the two-time ISL champion have a fight on their hands if they are to better NorthEast’s record.
Bengaluru FC: A season to remember! It’s possible
The beaten finalists of last season took the heartbreaks of last season in their strides and are looking like champions material. They are leading the ISL table and could secure a position in the playoffs with a win in the next match.
If the form is an indicator of a team’s potential, then the Men in Blues certainly have the wind in their sails. They really look like a team which can go all the way this season.
