<p>According to a press release from the Indian Super League (ISL), coach Bibiano Fernandes will take charge of a young Bengaluru FC team in the Durand Cup. The pressure will be on the young players right away as they will have to compete with Gokulam Kerala, who are sitting pretty at the top of the group with two wins in two matches.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bengaluru FC must perform well against the Nepal-based clubs to offer themselves a solid chance of qualifying, since there is nearly no room for mistake.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bengaluru FC’s junior players, who are the reigning champions, will have large shoes to fill since the senior club enjoyed tremendous success in cup competitions last season, making it to the finals of the Durand Cup and Super Cup and playing in the Indian Super League championship game.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“The Durand Cup is a renowned competition, and the fact that we are the reigning champion inspires these guys to give it their all. I have seen some growth throughout my stay here, considering that we have had a couple weeks of training in Bellary and Bengaluru. The goal, according to Fernandes, is to take this chance to knock on the senior team’s doors. “There are some really talented players in this group,” he remarked before to the competition.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Over the last several years, the Blues’ young squad has excelled in competitions. Players such Roshan Naorem Singh, Sivasakthi Narayanan, and Suresh Singh Wangjam are examples of players that came from the youth teams and went on to play an important role for the senior team.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>With the winning mindset that the club has shown in its ten years of existence, Bengaluru FC will utilize the Durand Cup as an opportunity to offer a platform for their young players, but the players will be eager to make a mark beginning with the match against Tribhuvan Army.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Super Machans are in a very good position going into their encounter against Tribhuvan Army on Monday thanks to Chennaiyin FC’s victory against Hyderabad FC and the other outcomes that have transpired in Group E.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In their excellent 3-1 victory against Hyderabad FC, Owen Coyle’s team would go to the quarterfinals with a victory.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>newest hires Jordan Murray and Connor Shields both scored as the club shown grit to come from behind and win all three points.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>However, Tribhuvan Army will hardly be taken lightly following their impressive performance in their debut game against Delhi FC, in which they narrowly lost due to a late equalizer.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They’ll be fired up to take on the ISL team, so expect them to play at the top of their game.</p>
