Match 56 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees NorthEast United FC take on Bengaluru FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa, on Tuesday evening.
NorthEast United and Bengaluru are facing similar struggles as both team target revivals and aim to finish in the top four. NorthEast haven't won any of their last six games, while the Blues have lost each of their last four games.
However, the Highlanders will be looking to seize the initiative against a Bengaluru side that have conceded six goals in the last four games. This season, Bengaluru have already conceded the same number goals as they did in the league stage last campaign (13) and their attack has only scored 12 goals.
