BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Tottering Bengaluru find themselves having hit a rut right before their semi-final
They might have finished third in the league stages of the Indian Super League 2019-20 but Bengaluru have done little to inspire confidence ahead of their clash today in the league. When the side step out to contest in the second semi-final, they’ll know that they have massive issues to paper over if they are to emerge as winners from the encounter.
The side are coming into the contest having been defeated 4-3 on penalties by Mazia in their AFC Cup qualifier, a defeat which is bound to have hurt them. Along with being extremely tepid why crafting together attacking plays with a mere 22 goals all season, Bengaluru look far from a side worthy of making it to the summit clash at the moment,
“Obviously, things did not go well for us in the AFC match. We are very disappointed but the message in the dressing room is to pick ourselves up and focus on the challenge ahead. Make sure that we give our 100 per cent and get ourselves to a position where we can win the trophy,” said Bengaluru’s Cuadrat ahead of the forthcoming encounter.
BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Probable Winner
We envision today’s encounter being a cagey affair, one where both the side’s defences will take centrestage. Playing in the comfort of their home stadium, Bengaluru will be buoyed and should manage to do just about enough to squirm their way to a draw on the day.

BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With 10 cleansheets this season, the highest by any goal-keeper across the league, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu from Bengaluru will be our pick for the goal-keeper. He’s been the reason for his side having been so tight defensively, a player who is set to revel us in some solid save points on the day.
BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Defenders
The only reason Bengaluru found themselves having made the journey to the semi-finals was due to their backline. It was the most articulate and well versed defensive unit, one which left sides in angst on how to muster up goals against them.
And with Bengaluru clearly left bemused on how to score goals, they’ll be deploying a defensive gameplan once again today as they scour for yet another shutdown on the day. It sees us move in with an eclectic partnership from the side, one which has acted as the true custodians of the side’s defence in the form of Juanan and Nishu.
Elsewhere from ATK we have the players come into our side as well courtesy of Bengaluru’s shambolic attacking unit with both Victor Mongil and Prabir finding a place in our side for this one.
BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Midfielders
Had it not been for Dimas Delgado, Bengaluru might not have found themselves having made it so far in the league. An appalling attacking unit was persistently guided by him with the player’s calibre helping bridge the gap the side wee so often tasked with filling when traversing the ball from defence to attack.
The two goals for Erik Paartalu see him make a place in our unit as well for the contest while from the opposition we’ll be moving in with Edu Garcia who has the five goals this season and Armando Sosa-Pena.
BFC Vs ATK Dream11 Strikers
The top scorers from either side make a way into our team for the day with us beginning with Sunil from Bengaluru with the player having scored 9 times this term. From the opposition meanwhile with the 14 goals, Roy comes into our for the upcoming contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Roy comes in as our side’s captain while Sunil is our unit’s vice-captain owing to the two being their unit’s top scorers.
