Bangalore: Bengaluru FC kick-off the first of their reverse legs in the I-League when they take on Mohammedan Sporting at the Salt Lake Stadium on Wednesday .

The last meeting between the two sides ended in a 2-1 win for Ashley Westwood's team and the Englishman would bank on the fine away form his team have hit, to pull off a double over the Kolkata club.

The Blues have made the trip to Kolkata on the back of a confidence-inducing 13 win at Churchill Brothers last week and would be keen to keep the momentum going given the fact that only three points separate second-placed Sporting Clube de Goa from the leaders.

The Sunil Chhetri-led team is on a three-game win streak with the skipper himself leading from the front with four goals in two games. Meanwhile, Mohammedan have too have a streak going – three goalless draws on the trot that leaves them at 10th position on the table.

In a bid to make the most of their return to top-flight football count, Mohammedan recently roped in six players on loan from the IMG-R.
