Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters FC will meet again in the Super Cup 2023, where the two teams will be in the same group as I-League teams Sreenedi Deccan and RoundGlass Punjab. RoundGlass Punjab won the I-League, while Sreenedi Deccan advanced to Group A thanks to a qualifying round victory.
Bengaluru FC will be looking to defend their title after winning the inaugural Super Cup in 2018. The Blasters will be hungry for vengeance after their ISL exit at the hands of the Blues, and they will have a chance to win the trophy, which will be up for grabs in their home state. The tournament’s third edition will be held after four years in Kerala.
The Blues will be focused on bringing the cup home for the second time and further enriching their trophy cabinet, and they will look to carry their 2023 form into the Super Cup. The Blues’ attack will be one to watch, with youngster Sivasakthi Narayanan making a place for himself in the starting eleven and his partnership with Roy Krishna doing wonders for the Blues. Captain Chhetri will look to break into the starting XI after making a big impact in the ISL knockout stages.
The Blasters finished in the top six and qualified for the playoffs in the ISL 2022–23 but failed to go all the way for yet another season. But the Blasters will look to make amends playing in their home state and try to bring silverware to the club in the third edition of the Super Cup. Ivan Vukomanovic, who has always kept an eye on the youth team, will be hoping for some young players to emerge that he can absorb into the senior team.
