BFC Vs CFC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Hosts strive to hammer down on a spot in the top 4 and assure themselves of a spot in the proceeding round.
From being in the dumps of the Indian Super League to now finding themselves well within sights of breaching the top 4, Chennaiyin’s revival in the league is worthy of being lauded. The club has gone onto register four wins in succession, climbing all the way into fifth place with the club reducing the deficit between themselves and Mumbai to 5 points.
It’s the attacking thrust which has been particularly deserving of all the plaudits. They hit Kerala Blasters for 6 the last time around to preserve in a 9 goal thriller with the side coming out on top 6-3. And come Bengaluru, Chennaiyin will be looking to emulate the same electric performance and continue in their compelling spiral up the points tally.
“We knew that we had to do better defensively. Bengaluru are a threat at set-plays. We will look at it. We don’t leave any stone unturned. They have options. We have to be ready for that challenge. It is a challenge we want to come on top of. If we do that, we get three very important points,” Hyderabad’s manager Coyle said when speaking about his side’s approach to the encounter.
While Chennaiyin’s resurgence is note worthy and one to write home about, the defensive side of the side’s unit has failed to step up its game. It’s something which should cost Chennaiyin today with a clinical and stern Bengaluru defence ensuring the side is able to string together the three points from this contest.
