CFC Vs BFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Both sides make a foray into today’s clash having recorded 0-0 draws in their foregone scrimmages.
For Bengaluru, the start to the 2020-21 edition of the Indian Super League hasn’t quite been the one the club would have envisioned. Although they are yet to be beaten, the side has made for a dreary attacking unit, one which has failed to offer anything of substance on the pitch.
Mustering up a measly three shots at goal in two matches, the club has ended up registering the least number of strikes in the opening exchanges of the league. It saw the side being held to a 0-0 draw by Hyderabad the last time around to see the side remain winless after their first couple of matches this season.
Cuadrat spoke about Bengaluru’s start to the season, “The team has been showing a lot of consistency with very clear patterns in the way we play, in our defensive structure. I think that we had a moment in the Goa game where we suffered a little bit.
That is where the other team scored. For the rest of the game, we controlled the other team’s attack really well and it was the same against Hyderabad. The opposition was not creating chances in both games.”
“It’s a special game and it’s like a derby for us. We will do everything possible to win because if we can collect three points, we can stabilise our position in the table,” Chennaiyin’s Laszlo said.

Where Bengaluru are failing to break their rut in attack, Chennaiyin on the other hand have endured their best defensive start ever. The side has let in just the one goal past it, defensive will and resolve which will guide them to a draw in this showdown.

We begin our set of picks with the selection of Gurpreet Sing Sandhu from Bengaluru. As ever, he’s one again been a safe pair of gloves for the side, a player who has refused to let anything slip past him.
Although they have failed to get their house in order when it comes to attack, Bengaluru have remained the typically strong defensive unit they have been revered as. The club has the one cleansheet to its name and with Chennaiyin going goalless in their foregone showdown, Bengaluru can easily make it two shut downs on the bounce today.
It will see us opt for the duo of Juanan and Harmanjot Khabra from the side whilst Chennaiyin themselves will see a trio find a place in our slot. Given Bengaluru’s laggard attack and Chennaiyin’s solid defensive showing, this one curtailing in 0-0 won’t be the most surprising of finishes to the tie.
We’ll be opting for Enes Sipovic, Eli Sabia and Reagan owing to this narrative.
If there’s one player who has tried to spark up Bengaluru’s attack, its Cleiton Silva. He’s scored one of the two goals the side has to its name to see him and Erik Paartulu form the duo from the club.
The opposition will also be represented by a partnership, one constituting of one goal man Anirudh and the electric Rafael Crivellaro.
The two are joined by the side’s leading scorer, Esmael Goncalves who has played a hand in both of the side’s goals with the one goal and one assist.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The likelihood of a 0-0 draw today sees Juanan captain our side while Sipovic is the vice-captain.
Gurpreet, Juanan, Khabra, Reagan, Eli Sabia, Enes Sipovic, Silva, Paartulu, Anirudh, Rafael Crivellaro, Esmael
