The FCPC vs BFC match preview –
Last year’s semi-final saw Bengaluru FC be victorious over FC Pune City. The duo will resume their rivalry as they meet in a game of season five of the Indian Super League on Monday.
FC Pune City will be eyeing a win in this game as the team is yet to taste victory this season. They are coming off a loss to their neighbours in Mumbai City FC in the Maha-Derby. It was a game where they were thoroughly dominated and played out of it by their opponents. For FC Pune City to get back to winning ways they shouldn’t have let go of their manager and brought in someone new. The whole teams feels reassured about their chances and Miguel Portugal is the one responsible for destabilising the core.
On the other hand, Bengaluru FC have been on point this season. If it wasn’t for Cidoncha of Jamshedpur FC to take away those crucial three points from the team, last year’s finalists would have a 100% record. They are a force to be reckoned with. New signings in the form of Xisco Hernandez has transformed this team. Strikers Sunil Chhetri and Miku are always going to bea threat up top. This team is once again the favourites to win the league.
