Two-time ISL champion club, Chennai, is set to face the 2019 champions Bengaluru FC at GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Goa.Preview Chennai FCChennai coach Chapa Laszlo will face a challenge when his team faces well-known enemies of Bengaluru FC. Marina Machans kicked off her campaign in the 2020-21 ISL championships with a 2--1 victory over Jamshedpur FC. Midfielder Anerod Thapa and New Deal player Ismael Goncalves advanced in that match.However, after a racy offensive performance, Chennai FC was relatively weak in their second showdown against Kerala Blasters FC. To compound his troubles, striker Jacob Sylvester missed a penalty kick and missed his first goal in the AFC Champions League.The attack was in good shape against Jamshedpur FC but lacked the much-needed bit of pitch against Kerala Blasters. Chennai will have to face a well-disciplined, well-trained Bengaluru FC team.Bengaluru FC Team PreviewBengaluru FC only managed to draw with Hyderabad in the 50th game of coach Carles Quadrat in charge of the team. The blues weren't at their best considering the high standards that were set.Sunil Chhetri and his cohorts lacked the offensive momentum for which they have always been famous for in ISL. Bengaluru FC scored two goals and none of the prime forwards was able to score.Quadrat will be happy with his defensive setup because Trio Fran Gonzalez, Juanan and Harmangot are news that have established their baseline well. Bengaluru used Ashique Kuruniyan's pace well along the flanks to provide defensive support and aid in offensive play.Predict the Chennai FC Bengaluru matchThe matches between the two teams have always been exciting with a tendency to score many goals. The match record is locked in three wins for every match ending in a draw.Indian soccer fans can look forward to a thrilling showdown as the two southern giants face each other.

Two undefeated teams, Bengaluru FC and North East United, will face a thrilling Indian Premier League (ISL) match at Fattorda Stadium on Tuesday.The former champions, Bengaluru FC, entered the season as one of the strongest teams after falling in the semi-finals last season. They have held most of their major players for this ISL season. Some additions were made to the foreign team when Norwegian Christian Upseth and First League winner Fran Gonzalez of Adelaide United and Mohun Bagan joined respectively.However, the team appears far from perfect. After making a two-goal lead in the first game, Bengaluru scored only once in the next two matches, thanks to a penalty kick. It will be interesting to see how they managed to beat the Northeast United defense, which has been solid so far.NorthEast United renewed their squad while keeping a few key players. With Gerrard Nuss at the helm, the team is making an impressive game with 8 points from 4 matches.They haven't lost a game this season yet. Players like Apuia, Benjamin Lambot, Dylan Fox and Ninthoinganba Meetei were great for Highlanders. The team has fine-tuned a few matches now, and with some fixes in the offensive, NorthEast United could become a killer. In the last match against SC East Bengal, NorthEast United won by a 2--0 lead.Bengaluru FC vs NorthEast United FC - Everything you need to knowThe two teams have met 8 times, and Bengaluru has the advantage with 5 wins.

The 2019/20 ISL (Indian Super League) season has been unforgettable for Hyderabad FC. The club came to ISL (Indian Super League) as the new avatar for Pune City FC, which has multiplied due to various financial problems and unpaid salaries for some players. However, despite the spirited way in which they got into the league, Hyderabad FC didn't live up to the hype.The club was unable to maintain a clean sheet throughout the entire season and has only scored two wins in its 18 matches. HFC also failed to score wins in December and January, ensuring it is cemented further down the table at the end of the season. The club finished 10th at the table with just 10 points from 18 matches dedicated to this season.On the other hand, Bengaluru has also had a forgotten season with their high standards. After winning a title every year of their existence, they finished the 2019/20 season without any titles. It is clear that the Blues had serious problems facing goal.With Miku gone and with club captain Sunil Chhetri without getting younger, Carles Quadrat had major loopholes to fill in XI in the match. Deshorn Brown, Kevaughn Frater, and Manuel Onwu ran a placement test, and none of them solved the problem.One would expect both Bengaluru Football Club and Hyderabad to grapple with the issues in the 2020-21 ISL (Indian Super League) season. While Carles Quadrat has hired players like Clayton Silva and Christian Upseth, Hyderabad has gone ahead with much-needed roster reform. The club's first signature was Spaniard Manolo Marquez. With 32 years of coaching experience under his belt, Marquez's coaching credentials are well known in some football circles.ISL Live Bengaluru vs Hyderabad Although there isn't much meaningful history in the Bengaluru FC matches against Hyderabad, the next match in Fattorda promises to be fun.Bengaluru FC will play the game after losing points to FC Goa in their first game of the season. With two goals ahead, the Blues' defensive unit faltered in the second half when FC Goa striker Igor Angulo equalized, ending the match 2-2. Carles Quadrat's men would undoubtedly suffer after the result, but they were confident of entering the match against Hyderabad FC.As far as Hyderabad FC is concerned, they scored an impressive 1-0 win over Odisha FC. The result was not only a rare victory but also his first clean sheets. However, as the win gives them much-needed confidence in the match against the Bengaluru side, Manolo Marquez will be aware of the threat the Blues could pose.Needless to say, a good match is expected in Fattorda between Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
