Raphael Augusto, who has by far been one of Bengaluru's top performers, signed with the Blues from Chennaiyin FC in the summer and it will be intriguing to watch the Brazilian go up against his former employers in a game that is sure to provide fireworks.
BFC's new signing Ashique Kuruniyan has played in the left-back position, but has been given the license to bomb forward in attack.

Chennaiyin FC do have players like Anirudh Thapa and Rafael Crivellaro who can influence proceedings from the midfield. However, it remains to be seen if they can translate that ability on the field against another strong team who are desperate for a win themselves.
John Gregory's side have a revamped forward line from last season, but thanks to a combination of profligate finishing and poor decision-making, they are yet to find a goal. Another issue is the continued absence of Albert Serran due to a muscle injury.
