Bengaluru look to sign off on a high against Churchill

Bengaluru look to sign off on a high against Churchill

Their campaign gone awry this season, Bengaluru FC would look to sign off with a positive result when they host Goan outfit Churchill Brothers in their final match of the I-League here on Saturday. Bengaluru are the last season I-League champions but this time they have been out of title contention long time back. Both teams are coming off a big-margin victory in their previous round encounters. Bengaluru drubbed DSK Shivajians 7 -0 while Churchill thrashed Chennai City FC 6-1.

Incidentally, both of these results are the biggest victories this season. Having won five straight matches (two AFC Cup and three I-League), Bengaluru would like to continue the good run ahead of the Federation Cup, which will be contested among the top eight teams of the I-League from May 7 in Cuttack. Bengaluru have won all their group matches so far in the AFC Cup and they look certain to qualify for the knock-out stage. The bright spot in their massive win last week was that five players were involved in scoring the goals and all of them are Indian players.
