The KBFC vs BFC match preview –
Runner’s up of last year’s Indian Super League in Bengaluru FC will be taking on Kerala Blasters in the fifth edition of the competition on Monday.
Kerala Blasters FC are still undefeated this year. The team has played five games and has drawn four of them. They have time and again shown their grit to not back down from a fight. Coach David James would be proud of his players but he needs to find a way to make them win games if the team does have aspirations of making it to the playoffs. They are sitting in the fifth position right now. The gap between them and the elite teams is palpable, with one of them being their forthcoming opponents.
Meanwhile, Bengaluru FC are on a tremendous run. They are the only team till now who has played only four games and are still sitting strong in the table. Before the season started they were touted as the favourites and have played football with the same vigour. This team is full of superstars and the bench strength they possess is unparalleled to any other team playing in the Indian Super League. The Blues are only playing their second season in this competition and are once again in contention to win it all.
