Bengaluru FC in ISL 2022-23

It wasn’t the best of starts for Bengaluru FC in the ISL 2022-23. Numerous ups and downs made the side go for a roller coaster ride throughout the season. However, now Simon Grayson’s side have found their form and are performing really well. Recently, they defeated Southern rivals Chennaiyin FC to seal their fourth victory on the trot.

Youngster Sivasakthi Narayanan has been a shining star at the club as of now. However, veterans such as Sunil Chhetri and Roy Krishna haven’t been at their best. Although Roy Krishna bagged a few goals in the past few weeks, his overall performance throughout the season has been mediocre.

Currently, Bengaluru FC find themselves in the sixth spot, with 22 points to their name. They next face ATK Mohun Bagan on 5th February, Sunday.
