Hyderabad FC (HFC) take on Bengaluru FC (BFC) in match 22 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at GMC Athletic Stadium on Wednesday, December 8. The fixture will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
HFC vs BFC Dream 11 prediction
Historically, Bengaluru FC hold a slight edge over Hyderabad FC having won one of the four meetings between the two sides. For Hyderabad, they are winless against the Blues as the remaining three matches ended without a winner.
Come Wednesday, we expect Hyderabad FC to finally get their first win over the Blues considering the form the Sunil Chhetri-led team has been in this season. Although the Nizams have struggled to score goals having netted just four times in three matches, Bengaluru have been even worse, especially in defence. The one-time ISL champions have conceded nine goals in four matches so far.
HFC vs BFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
HFC forward Bartholomew Ogbeche is the most picked player for this contest. Selected by a whopping 96.22 per cent of fantasy players, the former Mumbai City FC forward has accumulated 129 fantasy points in just three outings after scoring two goals in his last two appearances. He is likely to make an impact on Wednesday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Joao Victor of HFC has been in fine form for his team this season. The 33-year-old Brazilian has contributed two goals in his last two outings - a goal and an assist - taking his tally to 101 fantasy points from those matches. Although he was relatively quiet agianst Chennaiyin FC, he did manage to get into the Dream Team for that match and remains a strong recommendation for the midfield in this tie.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
BFC defender Alan Costa is the highest-scoring defender heading into this fixture. The 31-year-old Brazilian has accumulated 165 fantasy points from four matches and has made it to the Dream Team on three occasions. Given how frequently he will be called into action at both ends of the field, Costa remains a top pick for most fantasy players.
Selected by 78.87 per cent of fantasy players, BFC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu is the most picked goalkeeper for this fixture. Despite BFC failing to keep a clean sheet, Sandhu has managed to accrue 48 fantasy points which is significantly higher than HFC’s Laxmikant Kattimani.
