Bengaluru FC take on high-flying Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, on Tuesday.
Bengaluru FC are placed in the fifth position on the ISL 2020-21 points table with a tally of 12 points from eight games. The Blues also lost their previous two ISL encounters after a streak of six unbeaten matches.
Mumbai City FC, on the other hand, are in the second spot and a win over the Blues will help them regain the summit. They have accumulated 19 points from eight matches with six wins, one draw, and one loss.
In their last game against Jamshedpur FC, Bengaluru FC were certainly disappointed for not being able to bring home at least a point from it. Especially in the first half, Carles Cuadrat’s men had enough chances, but they didn’t take any of them and were made to pay.
Mumbai City FC are a point behind ATK Mohun Bagan at the top of the ISL table, but the Islanders have a game in hand.
In their last game, they scored two early goals to take a 2-0 lead against Kerala Blasters and held on to that to take the win in that game. Even with the win , Mumbai were not clinical enough and should have scored more than 2 goals vs Kerala.
For the first time in the history of the Indian Super League, BFC have failed to score in consecutive games.
The Blues would be aiming to break that sequence as they take on Mumbai City FC at the Fatorda Stadium on Tuesday.
