Competition: ISL

Market: Bengaluru win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on their ISL purple patch in midweek, Bengaluru will welcome Goa to the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Thursday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another eye-catching display last weekend as they claimed a 2-1 victory at home against Mumbai, Bengaluru are in the midst of what has become a stellar ISL flurry. Continuing to skyrocket their way up the table and cruising towards another top-six finish in 2023, Simon Grayson should find the mood in his camp at a real high. Gaining a string of plaudits since opening up the New Year, it should be noted that the one-time Sunderland boss has seen his high-flying squad win each of their last seven straight ISL outings. With that run underlined by a 3-0 romp away at Jamshedpur last month, Grayson’s men have also really found a clinical edge in the final third. Smelling the chance to lay down another marker in midweek, Bengaluru have racked up 16 strikes on their seven-match winning run.

As for the visitors, while Bengaluru might be continuing on a rampant run of form, Goa are enduring another recent wobble. Last seen putting in another downbeat display as they slumped to a 2-1 loss at home against Chennaiyin, Carlos Pena’s men have collected just a single point from their last three ISL matchups. With their February struggles underlined by an action-packed 5-3 defeat at home against Mumbai, fans around the Fatorda Stadium will know that their side face another tough test here. With just a pair of top-flight victories to their name since opening 2023, Goa have continued to show some rather glaring defensive issues. Hit with a deserved 2-0 loss when they welcomed Bengaluru to town for their reverse meeting back in November, a similar outcome can be found at appealing odds here.

Bet: Bengaluru 6/5 to beat Goa in Thursday’s ISL showdown @ 888sport
