Delhi Dynamos vs Bengaluru FC: Why the match is expected to be a boring one

After conquering the Islanders in his maiden ISL fixture, Bengaluru FC boss Albert Roca doesn’t seem to be complacent by his side’s overall performance that he instructs his Blues to go all corners round over the Dynamos today. He did cut some slack for the misfiring frontline since it was their first match in the new league. 


"I am not happy with the performance in the first game. It’s not just the win, we need to see how we go about the game. Everyone likes to win, but I want them to win after dominating. We’re [coaches] never happy," he said.


The coach further stressed the importance of winning at home.

"It’s important for sure to win at the fortress. It’s not going to be easy. But a win will give us confidence in the other fixtures coming up. This is an advantage we can take for later." 


Elsewhere, the ex-Real Madrid and the current Dynamos boss Portugal is content with his team and is sure that his balanced side will look to capitalise on their confidence and will surely put the Three-Times I-League winners on surprise. 


Delhi Dynamos won their opening match in an away fixture over FC Pune City wherein their young starlet Chhangte, the Brazilian Paulinho Dias and Matias Mirabaje showed their mettle. Though this Delhi side looks a little weaker in defence but Portugal believes that his side will get stronger as the season will progress. 


Both the teams are expected to go hard on each other with the same winning squad. Dynamos though are much expected to play 4-3-3 formation to immune themselves from the lustrous Bengaluru side. 


Why it'll boring?


It's highly expected that the match will be a good test for Bengaluru's strikers and Dyanmos' defence, however 3 of our 5 ISL panelists believe that the match won't see any result, which might end up devastating both set of fans. Both teams look solid in midfield and this is also expected that 65-70% of the match will be played in the midfield area.
