Bengaluru, March 10 (CNMSports) - After firing blanks in their first outing, Bengaluru FC will start as favourites at home against FC Pune City in an Indian Super League (ISL) semifinal second leg clash here on Sunday.
Pune and Bengaluru played out a 0-0 draw at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium in Pune on Wednesday. The game had few chances of note with the visitors getting the best of them but failing to make the most of their opportunities.
On Sunday, Bengaluru will hold the aces at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium where they have lost only twice out of nine league engagements. The two-time I-League champions, who are in their debut season in the ISL, have rarely put a foot wrong since the first day.
The Albert Roca-coached side won 13 times out of their 18 league games, losing on just four occasions with one draw to show for. They finished on an astounding 40 points, eight more than second-placed Chennaiyin FC who won the high-profile tournament in 2015.
