NorthEast United are looking to bounce back from a recent defeat to Odisha and the team has been playing relatively well to expect a decent outcome on their return to home comforts. NorthEast United will count on this game immensely with three out of the next four league matches on home soil.

Bengaluru are without a victory since the success over East Bengal in early October. The lack of games in the last three weeks has also extended the winless run for the team even further. Bengaluru will be looking to make the most of several home matches in the month of December by stepping into the period with momentum.

NorthEast United FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

There has been just one defeat for NorthEast in the last five games

NorthEast United have been going until the final whistle with the team scoring late goals in back-to-back home matches

Reasons to be fearful

NorthEast failed to score for the first time in five matches

Despite opening the scoring in three out of the last five games, NorthEast United have only managed two wins

NorthEast United appeared to be on the way to a strong finish in the top six but the loss against Odisha comes as a significant blow. The lack of a strong offensive push from NorthEast United has led to a string of bad results for the team. In the last four league outings, NorthEast United have only picked up one victory. The big win over Chennaiyin is the only success with a winning margin of more than one goal.

Star man – Ibson Melo

Ibson Melo scored in the last home match for NorthEast United. The Brazilian has managed only one goal in his five league matches since the move from Khonkaen United. Even though he did not get a goal against Odisha, he should be able to make a big impact on the upcoming game.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Bengaluru have scored over 1.5 goals in two of the last four

There have been some impressive offensive performances from most of the Bengaluru players

Reasons to be fearful

Bengaluru have not been assertive at the back

Sunil Chhetri has been unable to get on the scoresheet too often

Bengaluru remain in the bottom half of the table after having only picked up five points from the first six matches. A win over struggling East Bengal is the only positive for the team in the last two months of action. If the results do not improve, Bengaluru are already in danger of being sucked into the bottom half of the table.

Bengaluru are already five points behind Odisha and they will fall around the same deficit to NorthEast United if the upcoming game turns bad for the team. Coach Simon Grayson will be without Salam Johnson Singh because of a knee injury.

Star man – Sunil Chhetri

Even though Sunil Chhetri was unable to get on the scoresheet in the game against Hyderabad, he was an influential player nonetheless. The veteran was creating too many problems for Hyderabad in many opportunities. On any other day, Sunil Chhetri might have been able to find himself on the back of a goal or two.

NorthEast United can be very poor on so many fronts. The team has only picked up one win from the last four games. Bengaluru also have a similar record and they are likely to struggle to take their chances – even if plenty of them come their way.
