Both the teams will be aiming to get off to a flying start in the league and thus, a win first is very important for both the teams.

Bengaluru FC, the home team, will be playing under a new Head Coach Marco Pezzaiuoli, who took over the team after the end of ISL 2020-2021 season. Bengaluru FC didn't enjoy the best of season last time around, thus, former Head Coach Carles Cuadrat got sacked midway. However, Marco Pezzaiuoli only took over after the league ended and his first assignment was the AFC Cup.
Bengaluru FC finished 7th last season, which is the club's worst position in the ISL. And therefore, throughout the transfer window, Bengaluru FC have brought in new faces to strengthen their team. Especially in the foriegn department, where as much as 5 new foreign players have come in, only Cleiton Silva was retained.

Whereas, it was the same story for NorthEast United as well in the league last season, but the finish was little better than Bengaluru. NorthEast United also sacked their Head Coach Gerard Nus midway the season and assistant coach Khalid Jamil took over. From there, there was no stopping and the Highlanders reached playoffs for the 2nd time in their history.

But, they suffered defeat against ATK Mohun Bagan in the semi-final, therefore, NorthEast United's dream of making it to the Final was cut short. This time around, Khalid Jamil has appointed as full-time Head Coach, thus, becomes the first Indian to be a Head Coach of an ISL team.


Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United have faced each other 10 times in the Indian Super League history. Bengaluru have 5 time, NorthEast United have won once and 4 matches ended in draw, out those 2 are from last season as both matches between Bengaluru and NorthEast United ended in draw.
