Kerala comes to this fixture at position two in the league table on 20 points- three points behind the pacesetters with two games in hand. Bengaluru comes to the game at the back of five matches without tasting defeat. Here are our top predictions:
Kerala Blasters to score first @ 5/4 (2.25)
Kerala scored the first goal in four of their last five games in the league. The Yellow army comfortably scored the first goal when they hosted the league leaders at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. We expect the Yellow Army to continue with their style of play when Bengaluru visits them. Moreover, the hosts are ruthless at home as you can observe that they scored in each of the last five games. Bengaluru on the other hand went down first on four accessions from their last five games in the league.
Goal range– 2-3 goals 23/25 (1.92)
There were two or three goals on five occasions when these teams met in the past- this fact implies an average of three goals per match. The hosts registered an average of 2.4 goals from their last five home games. During these five games, there were three 2-3 goal ranges. The visitors also recorded 2-3 goal ranges on four occasions. There were three goals when Kerala hosted Bengaluru in the previous five games. We expect a similar goal range in the coming game between Kerala and Bengaluru.
Both teams to score 71/100 (1.71)
Both teams scored on seven occasions when these teams met in the previous fixtures. The hosts only kept a single clean sheet from their last home games. Fortunately for them, they scored at least once on all five occasions. The hosts have been out of duty longer than the visitors. We expect that it will take them some time to settle in the game. The visitors will be more active than the hosts hence will be able to get a goal. We, therefore, anticipate that each team will get on the scoreboard.
