OFC vs BFC Dream11 prediction
Bengaluru FC were tested by NorthEast United in their season opener on Saturday, but the Blues managed to come out victorious in some style.
BFC have been truly dominating against Odisha FC in the past, winning three of their last four meetings while drawing once. As for Odisha, their last win over BFC dates way back to 2019 when a brace from Daniel Lalhlimpuia guided them to a 3-2 win. Since that result, Bengaluru won three games on the trot. Overall, the head-to-head between the teams reads five wins for Bengaluru, two victories for Odisha and one draw.
Considering the superiority the Blues have enjoyed as well as their confident start to the season, we expect Bengaluru to come out on top on Wednesday.
OFC vs BFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best striker
Selected by 89.19 per cent of fantasy users, BFC’s Cleiton Silva is the most-picked forward for this match. Silva was instrumental for his team against NorthEast United as he scored once and assisted once to finish with an impressive 94 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Starting right behind Cleiton Silva, BFC midfielder Jayesh Rane put on an impressive display in his previous outing. The 28-year-old former ATK Mohun Bagan midfielder got on the scoresheet to finish with a tally of 72 fantasy points and could well be your trump card for Wednesday’s match.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
BFC’s Ashique Kuruniyan is the most-picked defender for this contest. Kuruniyan made it to the Dream Team after accruing 21 fantasy points from his previous outing. At 9 credits, he might very well be an expensive investment, but the 24-year-old is absolutely worth every penny considering he can make an impact on both ends of the pitch.
For a goalkeeper, we recommend you to pick Arshdeep Singh of Odisha FC over BFC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu. Since Odisha FC are likely to be on the back foot, Arshdeep Singh could prove to be a smart investment considering the amount of attempts on goal that he’s likely to face.
