Punjab FC will travel to take on Bengaluru FC at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in the eighth matchweek of the ISL 2023-24 season on November 30, Thursday. Having shown potential, Punjab FC have endured an interesting journey in the competition so far. They have concerns to address at the moment, including letting their foot off the pedal after getting into a position of advantage in matches. They have settled for a draw and succumbed to a defeat after getting a lead in their last couple of games.
For Bengaluru FC, they have been at the receiving end of their own errors lately. The last time they were subjected to a longer winless run was in 2022. It is crucial for a new team like Punjab FC to have the backing of their supporters as soon as possible. A victory against Bengaluru FC on the road will give the Punjab FC faithful hope and set the right mood in their camp.
The Indian international goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu has been critical in keeping Bengaluru FC in the game, while the 30-year-old Spaniard Juan Mera has been at the forefront of driving the creative moves of his side in the frontline.
This will be the first fixture in the ISL between these two teams. It’s important for both teams to remain competitive and work hard to achieve success.
