PUN vs BEN Dream11 Prediction for today’s ISL Match 3 February 2024

PUN vs BEN Match Details

Date: Saturday, 3 February 2024

Time: 17:00 (IST)

Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi     

PUN vs BEN Match Preview

Punjab FC had a decent Kalinga Super Cup campaign in Bhubaneshwar last month even though they failed to make it out of their group. The Shers finished third by collecting two points from draws against Chennaiyin FC and Gokulam Kerala but lost narrowly to eventual semi-finalists Mumbai City FC. Staikos Vergetis’ side still has not won more than one game this season which will be a major concern for them before resuming action in the ISL. The team has been guilty of failing to hold onto their lead multiple times this season, also playing out a 3-3 draw with their Saturday’s opponent Bengaluru FC in the reverse fixture having scored a 19th-minute opener in that game. However, the I-League winners have strengthened their squad in the winter transfer window and will hope the new signings make a notable impact in the second half of the ISL to move up the table.     

Bengaluru FC had an unimpressive Super campaign, taking just a point from three group games, carrying forward their disappointing form in the first period of the ISL. However, the Blues have called the shots in the winter window to revamp their squad and have ignited hopes of making the playoffs. Securing Indian pair Chinglensana Singh and Nikhil Poojary from Hyderabad FC will solidify the defence while the hope is that the Danish striker Oliver Drost will succeed where Curtis Main failed in producing goals. Bengaluru FC finished the first part of the ISL season in ninth just two points away from the playoff spot although managed just two wins. Head coach Simon Grayson wishes the new arrival will give motivation to the group to shake off their failures and wish for a fresh start. No better way to return to ISL than with a first-away victory of the season against Punjab FC even though the home’s side sole victory came in Delhi itself.
