Chennaiyin FC begin their Indian Super League (ISL) 2018-19 campaign against Bengaluru FC in a repeat of the final of season 4, at the Sree Kanteerava stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday evening.

Revenge will be on the minds of Bengaluru FC as Chennaiyin had clinched the ISL title last year in style after defeating BFC 3-2 in the final and they would look to settle the scores.

BFC had scripted a fairytale narrative, winning 13 of their 18 matches to qualify for the playoffs with four games to spare. But they faltered in the final.
