KERALA Blasters will renew their rivalry with table-toppers Bengaluru FC when the two sides meet in an Indian Super League fixture at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium here Wednesday. The two sides have a burgeoning rivalry between them and three points will be highly coveted despite the disparity in their positions on the table.  Bengaluru have all but sealed their spot in the play-offs with 30 points from 13 games while Kerala Blasters are out of the running for the same (10 points from 14 games).

“The reason we are on top of the league is the work that we have put in as a whole. We take risks, but we know that we are taking risks. The final outcome is that we are on top of the league,” Bengaluru head coach Carles Cuadrat said. Bengaluru FC will be boasted with possible return of Miku, and the new signing midfielder Luisma Villa –- adding more versatility to their attack.

However, the long dry run of captain Sunil Chhetri, who hasn't found the back of net last 600 plus minutes, is a cause for concern for the league leaders.
