Kerala Blasters FC vs Bengaluru FC Indian Super League ISL 2023-2024

The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-2024 season, the 10th season of the ISL, is upon us as the hosts Kerala Blasters FC set to take on the visiting team Bengaluru FC in the opening match of the new Indian top tier football season.

The hosts Kerala Blasters FC would be looking to recover from the heart-attack that they had to suffer in the ISL playoffs last season when a controversial Sunil Chhetri free-kick kicked-off off a major controversy that led to Kerala Blasters coach Ivan Vukomanovic walking out of the match with frustration. 

Kerala Blasters FC finished 5th in the Indian Super League 2022-2023 season with 31 points. Now the new season brings a lot of new hopes. With new signings, Kerala Blasters would be looking to do even better and their first challenge is their rivals Bengaluru FC.

Meanwhile, Bengaluru FC made a stunning comeback to finish 4th in the ISL League Table last season after a pretty terrible start, or rather the first half of the season. But Bengaluru began the 2nd half much more rejuvenated and stitched a brilliant run of form that took to them to the final, but eventually lost of Mohun Bagan Super Giant (then ATK Mohun Bagan) in the penalty shootout.

Bengaluru FC have retained their coach Simon Grayson after a stunning turn around of the season. However, the club has brought in some changes into their squad, especially their foreign players. Roy Krishna has departed and Curtis Main has come in as his replacement as the main striker. They would be once again looking to make it to the final, and this time lift the Trophy too.

While Bengaluru FC have won 5 matches, Kerala have won 3 matches while 2 matches have ended in draw. Both the clubs have played a total of 13 matches in the Indian Super League, out of which, Bengaluru FC have won 8 times while Kerala Blasters have won only 3 times. The remaining matches have ended in a draw.

Kerala Blasters FC vs Bengaluru FC Key Players

Adrian Luna: Kerala Blasters FC's captain Adrian Luna would be one of the most important player for the Kerala Blasters. Luna has been one of the best player for Kerala and his creative skills added with his goal scoring and free-kick ability makes him a dangerous attacking midfielder bursting forward.

Javi Hernandez: Another attacking midfielder to look forward to is Bengaluru FC's Javi Hernandez. Depending on Javi's creative skills and corner taking ability, Bengaluru's striker Curtis Main and defenders Aleksandar Jovanovic and Slavko Damjanovic's performance would be crucial. While Main would look to finish all opportunities created by Javi, Damjanovic and Jovanovic would be responsible for heading home all the brilliantly crafted corners by the Spaniard.
