How can the match turn out tomorrow?

Bengaluru are clearly the favorites and will surely dominate the entire match tomorrow.

They have players like Miku and Chhetri who can easily disrupt Chennaiyin's defense and create problems early on in the match.

Chennaiyin are going through a very rough phase and are hardly any match to the firepower of Bengaluru.

We predict Bengaluru will win the match with a 3-0 scoreline.

Choose Gurpreet as the goalkeeper keeping a 4-2-3-1 formation in mind.

Eli Sabia and Serran can be the center-backs while Bheke and Renthlei play as the left and right backs respectively.

Herd and Delgado can be the defensive midfielders while Chhetri, Udanta Singh and Augusto play as attacking midfielders.

Miku can serve as the striker.
