With a clutch of new signings and retention of key players, particularly domestic, Bengaluru look set to dominate again this season. They roped in India midfielder Ashique Kuruniyan this season to make an all-Indian attacking line-up of him, Sunil Chhetri and Udanta Singh. The Blues have added striker Manuel Onwu of Spain, who will have the unenviable task of replacing the prolific Miku, who has left the side.
From KR Puram to Cubbon Park. From Austin Town to Malleshwaram. Bengaluru, here’s your cue!

Despite the departure of some key players of the previous season, especially Bartholomew Ogbeche, NorthEast United have made some big signing, including high profile Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan. NorthEast United’s new head coach Robert Jarni is confident of a winning start despite the crowd being against them. Jarni felt his side will have a slight advantage since most of Bengaluru’s key Indian players were away with the national team for a while and might not have had tuned into their side’s preparations.
