Unbeaten sides Bengaluru FC (BFC) and NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) will face off in a key clash in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 season at the Fatorda Stadium in Margao on Tuesday.

Despite the win over Chennaiyin FC in the last match, Bengaluru coach Carles Cuadrat was unimpressed with his side's performance, lamenting the lack of final ball in scoring more goals. The return of Dimas Delgado in the starting XI provided BFC with some much-needed creativity in the midfield.
