Mohun Bagan SG vs Bengaluru FC: Match Preview, Live stream, TV Channel, Kick-Off Time & Where to Watch!

Following a comfortable 3-1 win over Punjab FC to kick off a new Indian Super League season, Mohun Bagan is going to play their back-to-back home game against Bengaluru FC in the Yuba Bharati Krirangyan on Wednesday.

This is quite the time for the Mariners as they witnessed the debut goal of Jason Cummings in the very first ISL match, a Liston Colaco redemption and a banger from Manvir Singh off the bench. This makes this squad quite lovely and sound.

The challenge is now to maintain this momentum against ISL giants Bengaluru FC, It is very unrealistic to expect such high-scoring matches every time. Still, Juan Ferrando is very keen to keep this winning mentality regardless of the club or squad. 

The quality of the opponents will be higher, and Juan Ferrando must be cautious with his decisions off and on the squad. Juan needs to be very rational with his rotations within the squad as Mohun Bagan's quality of the opponents will only get better from here. The hunger for glory and goals is healthy for now but this season is quite long fatigueness will play its role for the time.

The return of Anirudh Thapa after a one-match suspension will solve many midfield-related problems as he will replace Glan Martins who is having a tough time in form. Juan Ferrando will benefit from this as he is available for this crucial match.

With no Sunil Chhetri, the forward line is quite shaky with no initial chemistry with new faces in the team with the likes of Ryan Williams, Monirul Molla, and Curtis Main. But historically, when Bengaluru becomes desperate to win games the opponent's job becomes quite the tough nut to crack as their Simon Grayson has already mastered the art of comeback within this very last season when he took this BFC to ISL cup finals. Though they lost on penalties, we all know how dangerous BFC can become to come back.

A close-sided match can be expected tomorrow, one team is playing to keep the winning momentum and one team wants to earn that winning momentum. Juan Ferrando must win this crucial game.
