Bengaluru FC (JFC) will take on FC Goa (FCG) in match 69 of Indian Super League 2021-22 season at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa on Sunday, January 23.
BFC vs FCG Dream11 prediction
Both Bengaluru and Goa have had a disappointing ISL 2021-22 campaign so far. After a torrid start to ISL 8 season, the Blues are currently on a five-match unbeaten streak. With 13 points from 11 matches, BFC are eighth on the ISL 2021-22 standings.
On the other hand, FC Goa have lost their winning momentum after a decent start to the season. Under the tutelage of new manager Derrick Pereira, the Gaurs will look to bounce back from a narrow defeat against SC East Bengal earlier this week. Goa, with also 13 points, have played one game more than Bengaluru FC and are ninth in the standings. Both sides need to win to have any chance of making the ISL 2021-22 playoffs.
Bengaluru FC and FC Goa have met 10 times in the Indian Super League, with BFC winning five matches, while the Gaurs have walked away with three wins. Two games ended in a draw. FCG defeated BFC 2-1 earlier this season and will look to return to winning ways on Sunday.
BFC vs FCG Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Cleiton Silva has been one of the standout players for Bengaluru FC in ISL 2021-22. The 34-year forward has already netted five times and provided three assists in 11 matches. Silva is likely to trouble the shaky FC Goa backline on Sunday and add to his 513 fantasy points.
Top tip: Best midfielder
FC Goa midfielder Alberto Noguera has been impressive for the Gaurs in the ongoing edition of ISL. The Spanish footballer can control the game’s tempo from the midfield engine room, and has registered three goals and two assists in 11 matches. Having accrued 594 fantasy points this season, picking Noguera in the fantasy team against Bengaluru FC is a no-brainer.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Even though Bengaluru FC have conceded 18 goals this season, Alan Costa has been impressive for the Blues this season. The 31-year-old centre-back has been rock solid at the heart of the defence and has amassed 419 fantasy points so far. He will play a crucial role for Bengaluru against a robust FC Goa forward line.
BFC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu will be the preferred choice for the goalkeeper spot over FCG’s Dheeraj Singh. The Indian football team custodian has kept two clean sheets this term and will have the opportunity to garner more fantasy points through his saves on Sunday.
BFC vs FCG probable playing XI
BFC playing XI (probable): Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (goalkeeper), Naorem Roshan Singh, Pratik Chaudhari, Alan Costa, Ashique Kuruniyan, Jayesh Rane, Bruno Ramires, Suresh Singh Wangjam, Prince Ibara, Cleiton Silva, Sunil Chhetri (captain)
FCG playing XI (probable): Dheeraj Singh (goalkeeper), Leander D'Cunha, Anwar Ali, Aibanbha Dohling, Alexander Romario, Glan Martins, Edu Bedia (captain), Makan Chote, Alberto Noguera, Jorge Ortiz Mendoza, Airam Cabrera
