Bengaluru FC (BFC) will lock horns with Kerala Blasters FC (KBFC) in the 11th match of Indian Super League 2021-22 at the GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Sunday, November 28.
BFC vs KBFC Dream11 prediction
The Sunil Chhetri-led BFC head into the fixture after suffering a 1-3 defeat against Odisha FC on Wednesday. Having started their new ISL campaign with a 4-2 win over NorthEast United, the Blues are currently placed sixth in the standings.
On the other hand, Kerala Blasters FC have made a disappointing start to the ISL 8 season. Under new manager Ivan Vukomanovic, the Blasters were beaten 2-4 by ATK Mohun Bagan in their opening match and followed it up with a goalless draw against NorthEast United. With just a solitary point from two matches, Kerala Blasters are currently placed eighth in the points table.
Bengaluru FC have a superior head-to-head record against Kerala Blasters FC, winning five of the eight matches played between these two sides. KBFC have managed just two victories while one match ended in a draw.
Going by their head-to-head record and recent form, Bengaluru FC are likely to bag maximum points against Kerala Blasters FC on Sunday.
BFC vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Even though Sunil Chhetri failed to convert a penalty kick in their last match, the Indian football team captain will be eager to open his account and will be a big goal-scoring threat in the ongoing edition of the Indian Super League. The 37-year-old has netted 47 goals in 96 ISL matches and is just one behind ISL’s all-time top-scorer Ferran Corominas (48). Chhetri is likely to equal the record against struggling Kerala Blasters FC at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Jeakson Singh has been an integral member of the Kerala Blasters side since the 2019-20 season. The Manipur-born footballer has played 31 matches in the ISL, making 35 interceptions, 37 clearances and 38 blocks. Jeakson has played 90 minutes in both the matches in ISL 8 and he is expected to play an important role against a strong Bengaluru FC outfit on Sunday.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters FC have conceded five and four goals respectively in two matches so far. However, one can pick Bengaluru FC left-back Ashique Kuruniyan in your fantasy team. The India international has been one of the most standout defenders from the attacking perspective in the Indian Super League, bagging four goals and providing five assists in his ISL career. He has also made 55 interceptions and 59 clearances in 54 matches.
For the goalkeeper spot, Kerala Blasters FC’s Albino Gomes will be the preferred choice over Gurpreet Singh Sandhu of Bengaluru FC. Gomes is expected to be the busier of the two goalkeepers and he will fetch more points by making more saves.
BFC vs KBFC probable playing XI
BFC playing XI (probable): Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (Goalkeeper), Ajith Kumar, Alan Costa, Yrondu Musavu-King, Ashique Kuruniyan, Bruno Ramires, Suresh Singh Wangjam, Udanta Singh, Jayesh Rane, Sunil Chhetri (captain), Clinton Silva
