Bruised but motivated; NEUFC wants to end a run of 10 wins without a win


NorthEast United FC is going through one of their worst periods in ISL history. The team is already out of the semi-final race and has not come out victorious in any of their last 10 games. But the players are not giving up and will try to play their best game when they face the star-studded Bengaluru FC in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the PJN Stadium, Margao on Friday. Bengaluru FC had lost their last match against Hyderabad in which Sunil Chhetri reached the milestone of 50 ISL goals. Currently, at 6e position, a win against NEUFC will move them closer to the semi-finals. The match kicks off at 7:30 PM IST. It will be broadcast live on Star Sports Network, Disney+ Hotstar and Jio TV.

Despite a poor run this season, NEUFC Head Coach Khalid Jamil believes his players are well prepared for the game. Speaking before the game about the team’s approach to Bengaluru FC, he said: “They have experienced players, their team is so good, they also work hard, but we also prepared very well, so we will not take this match lightly. we have to finish the season, that’s why everyone knows it’s a serious game.”
