The Blues face a long stint on the road following their home victory against NorthEast United in the opener.
After a two-year gap, the Indian Super League ISL 2022-23 will witness the long-awaited flow of fans back to the stadiums. The ISL is all set to follow the classic home and away fixtures format this season. The league phase of ISL 2022-23 will run from October 7 to February 26th, followed by the playoffs and the final. The playoffs, semifinals and final will take place in March. Season 5 champions Bengaluru FC kicked off their campaign against NorthEast United, returning to their beloved patch, the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, after over two and a half years.
The season runs for close to five months and like last season, BFC will play a total of 20 matches each in the league phase – 10 matches at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru, and the rest on away grounds.
This season will also see a change to the playoff format with the organizers modifying the same to include two more teams to fight for the semi-final spots. The top six teams will automatically qualify for the knockouts and the top two teams at the end of the league will automatically qualify for the semi-finals. Simon Grayson will target the automatic semi-final berth after two years in the doldrums.
The Durand Cup champions managed to eke out a 1-0 victory in the first match, courtesy of Alan Costa’s thumping header. Starting off with a hard-fought clean sheet, the BFC defense will strive to be hard to beat throughout the campaign,
