NEUFC vs BFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Northeast United will be playing host to leaders Bengaluru FC in the Indian Super league top-of-the-table clash at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium (Sarusajai Stadium), in Guwahati, Assam, on Wednesday evening (IST).
If there has been one team which has improved by some good margins this season, then it has to be NorthEast United, a team which won only three games in the 2017-18 campaign and finished last in the table, having earned just 11 points from the 18 games.
But it’s been a ride towards the upward trajectory this season for the Highlanders who are playing with some purpose under their new manager Eelco Schattorie.
Last time around, the team struggled to play with intensity in the 0-0 stalemate against Jamshedpur as the fixture congestion seem to finally take its toll on the players. Schattorie didn't also change his tactics to show that he was going for the kill and looked content to earn a precious point on the road.
However, considering this is the home game and a chance to send a strong message to all the ISL teams, the onus is on Northeast to come good in front of their own fans against a team believed to be playing the best football ever in ISL’s short history.
Bengaluru FC extended their winning streak to six games as they defeated FC Pune City 2-1 in the last match at Sree Kanteerava Stadium. The win stretched their lead at the top of the table to four points after FC Goa and NorthEast United could only draw their respective games.
The last season’s finalists are just two games away from equalling their best ever unbeaten streak of 10 games which they achieved last season. Well, at this moment, they are playing even at a higher level than last season and can break all the records they achieved a year ago.
The Men in Blue have scored the 3rd highest number of goals this season, while their defence ranks best, having conceded only six from the first 8 games, and ahead of their rivals NorthEast who have shipped just eight goals. Clearly, this could be a tussle as two best defensive teams square off against each other.

NEUFC vs BFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
This will be a fascinating battle and the one which has ‘high-quality' written all over it. Also, despite boasting some of the finest attacking talents, we may see a drab draw here because the defence is good as well.
However, few players will definitely make an impact in the match, like Khabra and Bheke from Bengaluru who, despite playing their trade at the backline, can come good with the goals.
While Borges and Leudo have been outstanding for the Highlanders this season, they will be given the job of ‘stifling the visitors'. Delgado, and Udanta will be key for the Men in Blue.
Ogbeche is a threat all day, while Chhetri can pop up with a decisive pass or a goal for himself at any moment in the match.
Here, we think that NorthEast will be dominant in the midfield, while Bengaluru will be as hard as a rock, but not brittle, at the back.
Bheke, Khabra, and Nishu Kumar will be running down on the wings.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Both teams are in good form and will be equally confident to get a desirable result in this match.
However, Bengaluru are still unbeaten and look more a cohesive unit than any other team in ISL this season.
A score draw is our call.
Prediction 2-0 (at least)
