#1 Dimas Delgado
The Spanish midfielder, a former cadet of Pep Guardiola, has earned himself a lot of fans in his previous few games. He won 2 consecutive 'Hero of the match' awards with a brilliant display against Chennaiyin and FC Goa. Having scored his opener against FC Goa at Kanteerava, Dimas was referred as the "Midas" by the fans.
Dimas' ability to retain the ball and start the attacks from deep, plus his intelligence and his ability to contribute defensively makes him one of the most vital cogs of the Bengaluru machine. The 35-year-old attempted 102 passes, the most by a player in the match. His defensive awareness can be highlighted by the fact that he has made the most interceptions by a Bengaluru FC player.
With Garcia's departure, Dimas is the top choice to match up with Paartalu and Dovale in the midfield.
