Goals from Brazilian winger Cleiton Silva and Spanish defender Juanan put Bengaluru 2-0 before they conceded twice in 2-2 draw with Goa. A 0-0 draw with Hyderabad followed.

Norwegian forward Kristian Opseth looks set to return to the starting line-up after playing the second-half against Chennaiyin. 

Spanish defender Fran Gonzalez also had to make do with a late cameo, but could come in as part of Carles Cuadrat's rotation.

NorthEast United Form

NorthEast United have made an eye-catching start to the season with eight points from four games under new coach Gerard Nus.

A 1-0 win against Mumbai City got the season off to the perfect start, before NorthEast United snatched a point with a final minute equaliser from Idrissa Sylla in a 2-2 draw with Kerala Blasters.

It was another draw next as NorthEast were held 1-1 by Goa. Sylla scored a 40th minute penalty, only for his side to concede an Igor Angulo goal three minutes later. 

NorthEast won 2-0 against East Bengal in their latest match. The scoreline flattered Nus' side, who needed a Surchandra Singh own goal and an injury-time strike from Rochharzela to seal the points.
