Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the AFC Cup Interzone Semi-Final 1st Leg tie between Bengaluru FC ans Altyn Asyr FK at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru.

The Blues begin their season after a month break accompanied by a resourceful pre-season in Spain which included a friendly game between FC Barcelona B.

Bengaluru FC are in the Inter-zone Semi-Final finish by the virtue of a nail-biting finish to the Group Stage as they leafrogged erstwhile Group Leaders New Radiant SC from Maldives. A win over Dhaka Abahani and a loss to Aizawl FC for the Male based side have put BFC poised with the Turkmen side in the knockout round.

Bengaluru FC have included Miku in the squad along with Xisco Hernandez who is all set to make his official BFC debut. Thirteen boys from the Reserve side have been named while Dimas Delgado and Chencho has been dropped.

The Turkmen side overcame Istiklol in the Group Stage with a 3-2 win in their final encounter. Annadudyyev and Yakshiev upfront are on top form and will be a big challenge for the BFC backline to contain.

The game kicks-off at 8 PM IST.
