Northeast face Bengaluru FC

Vasco (Goa), 12 January (IANS). In the seventh season of Hero Indian Super League (ISL), Northeast United FC and Bengaluru FC have nothing left to separate. Both teams had a great start to the season and were once in the top-4, but have now slid down. The two teams will now face each other at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco today with the goal of making a comeback.

The Northeast, known as the Highlanders, has suffered two consecutive defeats, while Bengaluru has lost four in a row. Bengaluru are one point ahead of the Highlanders and are in sixth place. Both teams have consumed more goals than they have scored. Northeast have not won a single from the last six matches.

The last time Bengaluru and Northeast clashed each other, the Northeast held Bengaluru to a 2–2 draw despite falling behind by two goals. Northeast head coach Gerrard Nuss will not be part of the match due to suspension and assistant coach Allison Kharsant will make up for the lack of Nuss.

Bengaluru has broken up with its head coach Carles Cuadrott and interim coach Naushad Moosa is taking over the team. However, Moses could not change the fortunes of the team and Bengaluru lost in their previous match against East Bengal.

Moses believes that the match against the Highlanders will give Bengaluru a better chance to test themselves.
