Undefeated Bengaluru FC face winless Kerala Blasters FC in the South Indian Derby in round 6. Watch ISL 2020-21 live!
Kibu Vicuna's Kerala Blasters currently have just two points from four matches and will be eager to build up some steam to climb up the ISL points table. But Carles Cuadrat’s Bengaluru FC, as usual, pose a tough challenge. Watch Bengaluru FC vs Kerala Blasters FC live along with other ISL matches.
Bengaluru FC are unbeaten so far this campaign although they have drawn three of their four matches in ISL 2020-21. The Blues’ only win this campaign was a 1-0 triumph over Chennaiyin FC earlier this month.
For Bengaluru, the good news is that strikers – Cleiton Silva and Sunil Chhetri – have already opened their accounts this season.
However, two of the Blues' total five goals this season have come from centre back Juanan. Cuadrat will be looking to get more out of his forward players, starting with the Kerala match.
Defence has been the sore point for both teams this season, with goals conceded late in the second half costing them points so far. Kerala Blasters’ woes will only be compounded in the coming match with Zimbabwean defender Costa Nhamoinesu suspended due to his sending off against FC Goa.
With both South Indian teams having enjoyed a wholesome rivalry in the past, expect some uncompromising intensity from both sides.
