There is little to choose between the two teams on the evidence available in this IndianOil Durand Cup edition and that makes it difficult to pick a winner.

The ISL champions looked flawless until Army Red beat them in an insignificant final group league game and then Rajasthan United FC also gave them a tough challenge in the quarter-finals before succumbing to their overall quality. BFC have also had stops and starts in their campaign, scraping through a 10-man Odisha FC in the quarter-finals, with a last-touch winner from Roy Krishna following a monumental blunder by the Juggernauts keeper in the dying seconds.

Both teams have also scored identical 11 goals in the five matches so far, with HFC conceding three while BFC have conceded five. What also gives HFC the slight edge is that they have had seven goal scorers so far with Bart Ogbeche leading the lines with five strikes.

The Blues, on the other hand, have mainly relied on their striking trio of talisman Sunil Chhetri (3), Roy Krishna (3) and the pair’s understudy Siva Sakthi (4) for their goals. Faisal is the only other BFC player to score in the tournament and both Siva and Faisal have so far been preferred as substitutes by coach Simon Grayson.

Manolo Marquez, the HFC coach was present at the pre-match press conference and said: “I think if we have to tell something about them, it is that they have brought in better players in attack this year. They also have very good players from their academy. I think they are a very strong team physically . If you remember both games last season, we were very similar.”

“We played better than them in the first half with our style and they played better than us in the second half with their style. We have to try to play with our style. For example, on the second day it was very even between Odisha and Bengaluru, but these dangerous offensive players decided the result in the end.”

Bengaluru coach Simon Grayson also spoke of the familiarity between the two sides, saying: “It will be a tough game. We have to defend well and we have to score. HFC is a good side. But we are ready. I think most of our players know the weaknesses and strengths of HFC. So we know , what we have to do and we respect the opposition. Tomorrow we will score more goals than HFC. Play balanced football and try to win the game.”

Many are billing the game as a shootout between BFC’s attacking trio and HFC’s Bart Ogbeche, but it is really a clash of two combative and quality units with players like Akash Mishra and Suresh Wangjam and others on both sides capable of making a big game . It promises to be an exciting football match with the big Durand final prize up for grabs.
