77' - Bengaluru FC have been unable to assert their authority in the second half. Their lack of finishing touch is evident. The day Sunil Chhetri doesn't fire, Bengaluru don't seem to have a Plan B.

60' - Khabra with some good skill play on the right and he puts in a cross in the middle that takes an ATK head but falls for an unmarked Dimas Delgado on the left. However, Delgado's shot is wide. He would be disappointed that he did not hit the target at least.

Roy Krishna is ATK's primary weapon up front with eight goals to his name -- five of them coming in their last four outings. With the likes of David Williams, Javi Hernandez, Mandi Sosa and Edu Garcia in the line-up, Krishna will be confident of getting good support. Bengaluru's defence has been exemplary this season as well, having conceded just five goals in nine matches. The battle between a free-scoring ATK attack and a tight Bengaluru defence will determine the course of the match.



Apart from Sunil Chhetri, rest of the Bengaluru FC attackers have flattered to deceive, and they have seen their output upfront decline from the previous seasons. Despite featuring pacy wingers in Udanta Singh and Ashique Kuruniyan, Bengaluru have struggled to convert crosses. From 100 crosses, they have scored just one goal.
