On Monday, the South-Indian derby is all set to witness the most awaited match of the league- Kerala vs Bengaluru. This time it won’t be an equal competition as some glitches certainly exist in one of the team. 

Quick Analysis:

Bengaluru is all set to enter the turf with the confidence pumping all through the team after winning their two previous outings. The right man for the team, Miku is shining bright with 3 goals this season from 4 matches and provided one assist. Other than Miku, Sunil Chhetri and Eric Partaalu will become a nightmare to any defense in the league. With no injuries form Bengaluru side, it seems like lineups may not have any changes in this crucial match.

While the scenario from the host’s side is a bit reverse. Kerala is a ‘draw-loving’ team with only one win and four draws in their account. This achievement has awarded them with only 7 points. Kerala, also don’t have any injuries or any suspensions but it seems like Mohammed Rakip’s spot might be in a dicey state. If a change is made, two possible inclusions are Lalruatthara and Anas Edathodika, the latter having an advantage of experience. Kerala’s attempt to net a goal is commendable but their finishing touch doesn’t get them a score. Hope that these things change for the better for this match.

Probable Line-ups: 

Kerala: Naveen Kumar (GK), Kharpan, Vineeth, Poplatnik, Narzary, Dhath, Pekuson, Abdul Hakku, Lalruatthara, Pesic, Anas.

Bengaluru: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (GK), Sunil Chhetri, Haokip, Chencho, Ajay Chhetri, Altamash Sayed, Haokip, Kean Lewis, Sairuat Kima, Gursimrat Gill, Nishu Kumar.

PlayerzPot Prediction: 

Kerala will be able to hold Bengaluru in this nail-biting match with the amount of the support they receive after playing in the home ground. Although Bengaluru’s side is active in all shapes and forms but it’s Kerala’s undying fidelity that might put a halt to proceedings of the Bengaluru’s scoreboard.
