Indian Super League
Date: Monday, 5 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET/19:30 IST
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Kochi).
This is not just a game between two sets of players, it is also the battle between two of the most organized fan communities in India.
Blasters come back home after 2 games on the road and are still undefeated this season. After 5 rounds played they are 5th in the table level on points with Mumbai and ATK. The team from Kerala have drawn their last 4 games and have only 1 win this season which came against ATK on Round 1.
In the last 2 home matches, the team in yellow was held drawn by Mumbai and Delhi, with the score being 1-1 on both occasions. The hosts took the lead but conceded late in both games due to an error at the back.
The visitors are getting in the groove with 2 consecutive wins in the last 2 games. This is their third away game on the trot and they have not lost a game this season. With 3 wins in 4 matches this season they are 4th in the table, level on points with FC Goa and Jamshedpur.
They have won both their away games this season and over 2.5 goals were produced in both those matches.
Both the teams are playing attacking football but the visitors have been clinical in front of goals, so the viewers can expect a great game this Monday.
Kerala Blasters vs Bengaluru FC: Head-to-head (h2h)
- They have met in only 2 matches, both won by the team from Bangalore.
- Only 1 match was played at the home of the Blasters and Bengaluru had a 3-1 victory.
Kerala Blasters vs Bengaluru FC: Prediction
The Home side has never lost a home match this season. Even though they are poor on h2h record the team has seen some massive changes in the line-up. With the spirited Manjappada singing for them, I don’t see them losing this one either.
Since 4 of their last 5 matches was a draw there is a big chance for that to repeat again. With a bit of sharpness in front of goal, they might also grab 3 points from this game. So a bet on Double Chance on Kerala to win or both the teams sharing spoils can be placed with 1.78 odd.
Bengaluru have scored in all of their previous matches in this season. On the back of 2 wins and scoring 2 goals in the last 3 matches on the trot, we can expect Chhetri and company to score this Monday as well.
Although defense is the stronger point of the home team they have never kept a clean sheet against this opposition. David James’s side has also found the target in all of their games. So with both sets of forwards on form, we can place a bet on both the teams to score with 1.73 odd.
