KBFC vs BFC Dream11

We are all set to kickstart the 10th season of the Indian Super League as Kerala Blasters FC will take on Bengaluru FC in the season opener on Thursday. Bengaluru FC finished as the runners-up the last season and they will be eager to get their hands on the coveted trophy this time around.

On the other hand, Kerala Blasters FC finished 5th in the points table to find a place in the playoffs. But had a very unceremonious exit after Sunil Chhetri’s controversial freekick in the extra time. The tempers have been flaring between the two sides ever since and one could expect a hostile welcome for Bengaluru FC as Kerala Blasters FC’s fans are known to be vocal. Meanwhile, both sides will be eager to begin the new season with a win.

Date: 21st September, Thursday
Kick-Off: 8:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium in Kochi
WATCH: The Indian Super League will be telecasted live on the Sports 18 channel and you can also livestream the game on the Jio Cinema app.

Fantasy Football Tips Captain Options

  • Adrian Luna will have to lead Kerala Blasters FC in the absence of Dimitrios Diamantakos. The midfielder had scored 4 goals and provided 6 assists during the ISL 9.
  • Curtis Main will be the attacking line for Bengaluru FC and he has arrived to Indian football on the back of a decent return during the last season. Main scored 9 goals and provided 6 assists in the 2022-23 season.

Differential Pick

  • Naorem Roshan Singh is a defender but he is also a potent attacking threat for the opposition. He could help his side in maintaining a clean-sheet alongside creating the goal as well.

In the absence of Sunil Chhetri, both sides are looking equally potent currently. However, while Bengaluru FC have plenty of options available at their disposal to replace the Indian captain, Kerala Blasters can miss the services of Dimitrios Diamantakos. As per our prediction, Bengaluru FC should win this game.
