Kerala Blasters vs Bengaluru FC: Build-up
Kerala Blasters will be desperate to get back in action in their home ground and continue their dream run when they take on a resurgent Bengaluru FC in the 2022-23 Indian Super League (ISL) at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium on Sunday.
The Blasters last played on December 4, recording a 0-1 win over last season’s Shield winners Jamshedpur FC. For the first time in their history, the men in yellow are on a consecutive four-game winning run. Moreover, they have 15 points from eight matches and sit fifth in the points table.
On the other hand, Bengaluru FC have been borderline on the fringes of mediocrity in recent times and will be desperate to find an outlet that can bring back relevance to their game.
A win will take the Blasters to the same number of points as Odisha FC who have a meagre one-goal difference. But for Ivan Vukomanovic’s side, the disadvantage is that they will be playing one match more than the Kalinga Warriors which in return will make his team’s spot in the top five a temporary one.
At present, Bengaluru FC is one of the most struggling teams in the competition. The Blues couldn’t recreate the same vibe in the ISL after getting crowned as the champions of the prestigious Durand Cup tournament a few months back. They are currently having a major crisis up front with their star striker Roy Krishna and iconic Sunil Chhetri underperforming for the team. Meanwhile, their new recruit and former Blasters defender Sandesh Jhingan is yet to establish himself in the backline.
