With the 6th edition of the Indian Super League is already underway and last year’s finalists, Bengaluru FC have a really good squad, leaving them with many options. Carles Cuadrat’s side have had a decent Transfer Window acquiring the likes of Kean Lewis, Xisco Hernandez, Rino Anto, Albert Serran and Chencho Gyeltshen. But the Blues also lost key players like John Johnson, Subhashish Bose, Lenny Rodrigues, and Lalthuammawia Ralte. So let’s try to figure out how the 2017/18 Finalists will Lineup in their first game against Chennaiyin FC.

India’s Number one shot stopper finished last Season with 7 clean sheets and will be looking to better his already outstanding record in this Season.
LB- Nishu Kumar
.@nishukumar22 says that the Blues are ready for a massive performance, as they take on Altyn Asyr FK in the second leg of the Inter-Zone semifinal in the 2018 @AFCCup on Wednesday. #AASvBEN #BluesInAsia pic.twitter.com/FKdFnj6Q5K

Nishu played second fiddle to Subhashish Bose at Bengaluru FC last Season but the Full-back proved his worth in the AFC Cup Fixture against Altyn Asyr FK.
CB- Rahul Bheke

Bheke or Bhekenbeur as the BFC fans call him has been a model of consistency and versatility. He will hope to continue his brilliant progress this Season as well.
CB- Juanan Gonzalez
Having retained most of its core players, including its star foreign signings like Miku (15 goals last season), Erik Paartalu, Dimas Delgado and Juanan, @bengalurufc will look to go one better this #ISL season. #IndianFootballhttps://t.co/zz6SRbK0QQ

Juanan has been an absolute rock for Bengaluru FC. The Spaniard is solid at the back and we’ll be expecting the same kind of performances from him this Season.
RB- Rino Anto
— Rino Anto (@rinoanto) July 14, 2018
A sentimental signing, we know that Rino Anto hasn’t been at his best for Kerala Blasters and a switch to BFC may just spark something in the Full-back like it did the last time he dawned Blue Jersey.
CM- Erik Paartalu
— Bengaluru FC (@bengalurufc) September 27, 2018
A Fan Favourite, Erik Paartalu has put in the hard yards for the team in the middle of the park and is the kind of Player who would give everything for the badge.
CM- Dimas Delgado
— Dimas Delgado (@DimasDelgadoMor) September 25, 2018
Calm, composed and very effective. Delgado is a very good all-round Midfielder who can intercept the ball from time to time and can distribute the ball well.
CAM- Xisco Hernandez
— Xisco Hernández (@xiscohm31) September 28, 2018
The 29-Year-Old Spanish Midfielder is immensely talented and is blessed with Creativity and Vision. It’ll be interesting to see how is first Season pans out.
LW- Sunil Chhetri
We've been away from the Fortress for too long and that changes tonight. Big occasion and we hope to make it memorable. Looking forward to seeing the stands come alive. #BENvAAS pic.twitter.com/DddToDVhHe
— Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) August 22, 2018
The Team’s main Man and the Biggest name in Indian Football. A lot will be expected from Chhetri as Bengaluru FC Kick off their ISL Campaign.
Sunil Chhetri and Miku have scored 29 goals out of the club's 40 goals (72.5%) in the ISL and that shows how important the pair has been for Bengaluru FC this season. #Chettri #Miku #BengaluruFC https://t.co/KBJl42g28u pic.twitter.com/tNnT3kDlyl

Miku was an absolute delight to watch last Season, scoring Goals week in week out. We’ll be expecting more of the same from the Venezuelan.
RW- Udanta Singh
— Udanta Kumam (@UdantaK) August 15, 2018
Udanta is India and BFC’s crown Jewel, Football’s future and he is one hell of a player. Blistering pace and great vision. We all expect so much from this boy.
