Bengaluru and Kerala Blasters go head to head in the Indian Super League at Fatorda Stadium on Sunday. Kerala are still searching for a first win, while Bengaluru are unbeaten but have drawn three of their four games.

Bengaluru Form


A 2-2 draw against NorthEast United in their last game maintained Bengaluru's unbeaten start to the season.

Goals from Juanan and substitute Udanta Singh put Bengaluru 2-1 up. But they conceded 12 minutes from time and had to settle for a share of the points for the third time in four games.

Carles Cuadrat's side started the season with back-to-back draws against Goa (2-2) and Hyderabad (0-0). 

They got a first win over the season with a 1-0 victory over Chennaiyin thanks to Sunil Chhetri's penalty.

Spanish defender Fran Gonzalez and Norwegian forward Kristian Opseth have both appeared from the bench in the last two games. Opseth looks set for a return to the starting line-up.

Kerala Blasters Form


Kerala Blasters are without a win this season and suffered a second defeat of the campaign last time out. 

Kibu Vicuna's side found themselves 2-0 down to Goa before Vicente Gomez reduced the deficit in the 90th minute. Two minutes later, centre-back Costa Nhamoinesu was dismissed and Igor Angulo went on to seal a 3-1 win for Goa.

Kerala lost 1-0 to reigning champions ATK Mohun Bagan in the first game of the new season, but picked up points from draws in their next two games. They drew 2-2 with NorthEast United and ended 0-0 against Chennaiyin.
