AFC Cup 2017: Bengaluru FC Vs April 25 Sports Club Inter-Zonal Semi Final 2nd Leg Preview - All the numbers you need to know ahead of the game
Bengaluru FC will square off to April 25 Sports Club on 13th September in the second leg of the all important AFC Cup Inter-Zonal semi finals. With a 3-0 win in the home match, last season's runners-up are in the driver's seat and would look to guard against complacency when they face the North Korean side on Wednesday in the away leg in Pyongyang.
After an inconsistent group stage, the Blues produced a convincing 3-0 victory in the home match last month and will hope to do the same tomorrow to seal the berth in the Inter-Zonal final with a strong performance at the May Day stadium. Albert Roca's side have just lost two games on the way to the semi finals and will look to avoid conceding early in the game.
On the team news front, Roca has almost an entire squad to choose from with no suspensions or injuries to worry about. However, Dimas Delgado, Lenny Rodrigues and Harmanjot Khabra who all picked up bookings during the first leg will have to be careful as another yellow card will find them suspended from the Inter-Zonal final should the Blues make it through.
"We are confident going into the game, but there's no place for complacency. We know that they are a strong opponent and have to be focused to get the job done in Pyongyang"-Alberto Roca
