Bengaluru are likely to be highly motivated for their final league fixture of 2023 as they take on NorthEast United at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium. After getting a much-needed victory from the recent match, Bengaluru are in a position where they can even end up in the top six going into the new year. Meanwhile, NorthEast United continue to slide in the table and this will be another difficult match for the team.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

The club picked up a first win in eight games

Bengaluru have lost only once at home

Reasons to be fearful

The team has not scored from open play in the last three league matches

The form of Sunil Chhetri has dipped of late

Bengaluru were very much relieved to pick up the victory over Jamshedpur. Even though there are plenty of nervous moments for the team towards the end, Bengaluru held on for a crucial victory that gives them a way into the top six places by the end of the year. This will be a huge motivation for the team, which brought in Gerard Zaragoza as the new coach in the middle of December. Salam Johnson Singh is unavailable due to a knee injury.

Star man – Javi Hernandez

Javi Hernandez has been a model of consistency for Bengaluru so far this season. Even though Sunil Chhetri was the outright top scorer a week ago, his goals have dried up of late. Meanwhile, Hernandez has moved level with Sunil Chhetri following his penalty against Jamshedpur.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

NorthEast United have scored in three of the last four

The team had a decent performance against Mohun Bagan a week ago

Reasons to be fearful

The club have not scored in back-to-back away matches

The last away win for NorthEast United was in February 2021

NorthEast United look to shake off their terrible away form when they travel to the southern state of Karnataka. For a team without an away victory in the Indian Super League since February 2021, the expectations are not high. Just when it seemed that the team would kick on from their win against Jamshedpur towards the end of October, it has been a downhill battle for Juan Pedro Benali and his team.

Star man – Phalguni Singh

Midfielder Phalguni Singh grabbed his second goal of the campaign in the loss against Mohun Bagan. The 28-year-old could not have a big impact in the second half after his team were reduced to 10 men. The midfielder could play a key role in this fixture.

NorthEast United last managed a victory against Bengaluru in February 2022. This extended winless run could continue further with the club’s away results far from showing any signs of improvement. It is almost 3 years without an away victory in the Indian Super League for NorthEast United. Bengaluru are high from their recent win and they could push for a second consecutive victory on their patch. Both teams have had a full week to prepare for this game.
