FCG vs BFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Bengaluru FC will be out to end a two-game skid when they host a free-scoring FC Goa in the Indian Super League regular season match at Sree Kanteerava Stadium, in Bengaluru, India., on Saturday evening (IST).
Bengaluru FC: Too many changes!
In the last five games, Bengaluru FC have dropped more points than they did in the rest of the season. It’s a period which has robbed them of the honor of becoming the first ever side to go unbeaten for the whole of the regular season in the Indian Super League.
The Men in Blues suffered three defeats in that period, two in the last two, costing them a place at the top of the summit. But the mere reading of the scoreline may not reveal the full extent of what went wrong as the performance of the players and the playing 11 all contributing in that regard.
Having amassed 27 points from 11 games, the qualification to the playoffs was just a formality for Bengaluru. And that could be the reason why manager Carles Cuadrat has been flirting with the squad of late. He has been making too many changes to the playing 11, a reason for the team’s newly found inconsistency.
The results failed to suffice with the decision and now the team looks bereft of momentum. This is the wrong time to lose confidence, something if not checked, may come to haunt the side in the playoffs.
FC Goa: Getting into the groove at the right time!
If Bengaluru FC are suffering from the loss of form at the wrong time of the season, FC Goa are heading North, scoring goals and winning games. From the fringes of the playoff spots, the Guars are now sitting at the top of the table, level on points with Bengaluru FC.
Goa won the last two games by a scoreline of 3-0, beating ATK and Kerala Blasters at home. Ferran Corominas has been the main thruster behind that run as he scored four times in the last two games.
Nobody is perfect but FC Goa are close to being a complete team at the moment!
The Gaurs have always been a joy to watch when going forward. The goals have never been a problem for them ever since Sergio Lobera took charge of the club. But going with hell-bent approach when attacking leaves too many gaps for the teams to forge counter-attacks, and that is what has undone the Goa in games.
However, there seem to be a buck in the trend as Gaurs have kept seven clean sheets in the last 8 games.
