Returning to ISL action after over a month, Mumbai City FC made the trip to face Bengaluru FC for a rematch of their semi-final encounter last season. Here in this article you can check about the Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai City FC (BFC vs MCFC) dream11 prediction, match preview, head to head and predicted lineups for the ISL 2023/24 match.


BFC vs MCFC Match Details

Date: Friday, 8 December 2023


Time: 20:00 (IST)

Venue: Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bangalore  


BFC vs MCFC Match Preview

Bengaluru FC had to produce a come-back three times in the entertaining 3-3 draw against bottom-placed Punjab FC. It was a third draw on the spin for the Blues with a second consecutive one at the Kanteerava. They remain with just a win in eight ISL matches till now and are ninth on the table with just seven points collected. Lacking direction, Simon Grayson’s team needs to regather form before the end of the year or the playoff qualification will become a distant matter soon. Bengaluru FC have shown their strength in coming back last season with a victory now could swing the momentum to their favour. Shield holders Mumbai City are the visitors next in the consecutive home game and will pose a tough challenge. However, the 2018-19 winners have triumphed while being the underdogs in this meeting recently. Bengaluru FC won the league tie at Kanteerava back in February to put an end to the Shield Winner’s record unbeaten run in the league. Therefore, the Blues will be motivated to collect three points in this game which will take them to sixth on the table and a point close to the Islanders, a place above them.   

One of the three teams yet to lose in the ISL this season, Mumbai City are returning to domestic football after playing the last three fixtures in the AFC Champions League consecutively. The last Indian club to qualify for the competition directly, the Islanders finished bottom of the group by losing all the fixtures against Al Hilal, Nassaji and Navbahor. They managed to score only once that too in the final group match against the Uzbek team and conceded 17 times overall in a rather disappointing campaign for them. Mumbai City will now completely focus on their ISL Shield defence having last played in the league on November 2, 2023, which was a 2-1 comeback win over Punjab FC at home. With their new head coach Petr Kratky about to take the helm, the side will face a hectic schedule of playing four games in 13 days with the top three to face before the end of the year. Though Mumbai City will have their last season’s semi-final elimination in mind, they will wish for a win against Bengaluru FC that will take them to the top four and put them ahead in the head-to-head of this meeting.
