High on confidence after making it to the final of the Indian Super League in their first season, Bengaluru FC would look to begin their AFC Cup group stage campaign on a high note with a win over Abahani Dhaka Limited here today.

Bengaluru are going into the match with their tails up after an enthralling 3-1 win against FC Pune City in the second leg of the Indian Super League. In contrast, the Bangladesh champions Abahani have come here after a 0-1 loss to Maldives' New Rediant Club in their backyard.

The two teams had met each other last April when Bengaluru had emerged 2-0 winners, riding on Nishu Kumar and Marjan Jugovic's goals.
