Sixth-placed NorthEast United, who have four points from three matches will take on Bengaluru FC, who are on ranked second with six points after three matches.
NothEast United are going into this match after beating Delhi Dynamos in their previous fixture. After spending over four weeks with the team, striker Halicharan Narzary appears to be an integral part of the team’s attack. Nirmal Chettri has been seen making a good number of successful tackles this season. His ability to run up on the flanks could prove useful in the attack. Marcelinho, who has arguably been their main man this season, is expected to lay chances for Halicharan and Danilo.
Although we saw Narzary limp off the field during NorthEast’s match against Delhi, coach Joao Carlos Pires de Deus stated that he was match fit and fully re-integrated in the squad.
Bengaluru FC suffered their first loss of the season against FC Goa (3-4) in an away fixture. Prior to that, the franchise has claimed two consecutive wins. Skipper Sunil Chhetri, who recently got married, will be available for tonight’s game. Erik Partaalu, who has scored three goals from set-pieces this season, will appear lethal yet again. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who picked up a red in the last match, will be suspended for this game.
Keepers Abhra Mondal and Lalthuammawia Ralte are yet to be declared fit. Calvin Abhishek will keep for Bengaluru in Gurpreet’s absence.
