Bengaluru FC take on Mumbai City FC in the second leg of the 1st semi-final of the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23. The match will be played at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
The Blues have an edge coming into this game as they won the 1st leg, 1-0. Sunil Chhetri’s header was the deciding factor as the away team took a brilliant lead and eventually won the game.
Mumbai City FC slumped to their 3rd defeat on the trot. It feels like they have become a tad complacent after their ISL League Shield victory.
Twice in the past three games, the Islanders have lost to Bengaluru FC. And that will act as a psychological barrier when they take the field in front of a packed Kanteerava Stadium.
In this article, we take a look at the history and statistics between the two clubs in ISL:
