MATCH-107 : 05.03.2022 : SC EAST BENGAL <b><font color=red> 0-1 </b></font> BENGALURU FC:

SC East Bengal ended the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) in familiar fashion as their last Hero Indian Super League encounter resulted in a 1-0 defeat against Bengaluru FC here, at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. Sunil Chhetri’s solitary strike (24’) proved to be the difference, bagging three points for Marco Pezzaiuoli’s men in their final fixture of their 2021-22 campaign.

The result meant that the Kolkata-based club finished the season in the bottom-place on the points table, with only one win in 20 matches. On the other hand, Bengaluru FC finished in sixth place as they secured 29 points overall.

Antonio Perosevic tested Lara Sharma in the goal from a free-kick situation early in the match but the custodian was steadfast in making the save. The game was evenly balanced until a moment of individual brilliance from Sunil Chhetri broke the deadlock. The skipper controlled a long ball on his chest and slotted the shot into the bottom left corner to give the lead to the Blues in the 24th minute. Udanta Singh then came close to scoring but saw his long-range shot hit the crossbar at the stroke of half-hour.

The first half did not have any more goals apart from a lot of goalmouth action from both teams. The Red & Gold Brigade suffered a setback by losing Perosevic to an ankle injury, who was replaced by Marcelo Ribeiro. Due to a lack of cohesion in the final third, only one goal came from the first 45-minutes and BFC went into the halftime break with a one-goal advantage.

The second half saw a harder push for the second goal from Bengaluru FC. However, they handed a gift to Thongkhosiem Haokip at the hour mark after letting the ball fall to him behind the backline only for him to lift his chip way over the bar. A whole host of changes were made by both tacticians to give time to youngsters and inject more energy in the match after the hour mark.

BFC came close yet again to extend their lead courtesy of Chhetri whose powerful drive was parried away by Suvam Sen in SCEB’s goal. Ananta Tamang and Sen had to combine a few minutes later to deny the second goal to Chhetri, keeping their team in the hunt. Despite SCEB’s best efforts, the Blues kept their lead intact and secured the three points.

ATK Mohun Bagan took a major step towards ensuring a semi-final spot with a 2-0 win against Bengaluru FC in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda.

The defeat ended all hopes for the Blues of making it into the top-four. As for the Mariners, they remaines third, level on points with second-placed Jamshedpur FC.

Liston Colaco (45+1’) scored his eighth goal of the season from a sensational free-kick to give his team the lead. Manvir Singh (85) added a second late in the game to put the result beyond doubt.

An early chance saw Liston Colaco testing Lara Sharma from a direct free-kick, but the goalkeeper was steadfast in collecting the ball. On the other end, Cleiton Silva threatened to score but managed to send his volley above the crossbar. At the half-hour mark, Sunil Chhetri was left unmarked in the box but his header went off-target, much to his disappointment.

MATCH-106 : 27.02.2022 : ATK MOHUN BAGAN <b><font color=red> 2-0  </b></font> BENGALURU FC :

The Mariners suffered a setback in the first half as Hugo Boumous was substituted at the stroke of the 40th minute, possibly due to an injury. Just when it looked like both teams will go into the halftime break without scoring a goal, the deadlock was broken with a moment of individual brilliance. Liston Colaco’s powerful direct free-kick beat Sharma in the goal to give the lead to ATKMB right before the halftime whistle.

Nine minutes after the restart, Manvir Singh found acres of space behind BFC’s backline, but poor decision-making on his part saw his shot getting blocked. Moments later, Colaco was serviced by Kauko but saw his shot hit the left post. The BFC head coach made a truckload of changes in order to save the season and turn the game around near the hour mark.

The Blues dominated more of the possession in the final stages of the match but struggled to create clear scoring chances. To end any hopes of a comeback, Manvir scored against the run of play in the 85th minute with a precise finish in the bottom left corner. There was no fight left in the BFC camp after the strike and the Mariners secured the win with ease.

ATK Mohun Bagan will lock horns with Chennaiyin FC in their next outing at the PJN Stadium on Thursday whereas Bengaluru FC will play SC East Bengal in their last league game of the season at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Saturday.

Bengaluru FC had to come from behind to defeat Odisha FC by a 2-1 scoreline in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result keeps the Blues in the hunt for a semi-finals spot as they rise to fifth with 26 points, one behind fourth-placed Kerala Blasters FC. On the other hand, a third winless outing causes OFC’s semi-final ambitions to suffer a huge blow.

Nandhakumar Sekar (8’) pounced on a loose ball to score early in the game but Danish Farooq’s (31’) header levelled the score. Cleiton Silva (49’) scored from the penalty spot in the second half, which eventually separated the two teams.

MATCH-99 : 21.02.2022 : BENGALURU FC <b><font color=red> 2-1 </b></font> ODISHA FC :

Both teams began on a strong note, creating decent scoring opportunities. Bruno Ramires came close to scoring inside five minutes but his long-ranger swerved narrowly past the target. However, it was Odisha FC that took the lead after Jonathas found space behind the BFC backline but saw his shot saved by Lara Sharma. Unfortunately for the Blues, the rebound fell to Nandhakumar Sekar who sent his team into an early lead.

The equaliser arrived soon as Danish Farooq scored with a header from Roshan Naorem’s corner at the half-hour mark. Kamaljit Singh misjudged the flight of the ball that gave the midfielder a free-header on the far post, leading to the goal. The first half had an eventful end with Nandhakumar coming up one-on-one with the goalkeeper. But, the winger managed to hit the side netting after dodging the advancing Sharma, failing to score a second.

The second half started on a poor note for the Kalinga Warriors, as they gave away a penalty inside the first few minutes of the restart after Udanta Singh was tripped inside the box. Cleiton Silva took the spot-kick and expertly sent the goalkeeper in the wrong direction to hand the lead to BFC.

MATCH-99 : 21.02.2022 : BENGALURU FC <b><font color=red> 2-1 </b></font> ODISHA FC :

Odisha’s quest for a second saw them make a few attacking substitutions, one of them being Aridai Cabrera. The forward fed Isaac Vanmalsawma whose shot was parried onto the right goalpost by Sharma in goal. Bengaluru FC defended resiliently in the final stages of the match. Despite getting an extra five minutes of added time, OFC was unable to find the crucial second goal and conceded the defeat.

Odisha FC’s next outing will be against top-four contenders ATK Mohun Bagan at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Thursday whereas Bengaluru FC also play the Mariners next at the PJN Stadium on Sunday.

Bengaluru FC made it three wins on the spin to move to the third spot, riding a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over Jamshedpur FC in the Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim here on Saturday.

Daniel Chima Chukwu had given Jamshedpur the lead inside the first minute but Bengaluru made a roaring comeback in the second half, Cleiton Silva (62nd, 90th) scoring twice on either side of Sunil Chhetri's equaliser in the 55th minute. Chhetri scored his 49th goal, equalling Hyderabad FC's Bart Ogbeche who became the all-time highest scorer of the Hero ISL the other day with 49 strikes as Bengaluru stretched their unbeaten run to eight games. Bengaluru now have 23 points from 15 games, same as Kerala Blasters who are second due to better goal difference.

Jamshedpur dropped to fourth with the loss with 22 points from 13 matches. Jamshedpur were in the ascendancy in the very first minute of the game, Chima getting on the scoresheet for the second consecutive game since joining the Men of Steel.

Alexandre Lima carried the ball through the heart of the pitch and passed to Borish Singh who lay it up for Chima who got in between Alan Costa and Roshan Naorem to first trap the ball and then fire it into the roof of the net.

 MATCH-82: 05.02.2022 : BENGALURU FC  <b><font color=red> 3-1 </b></font> JAMSHEDPUR FC:

Pegged back so early on, Bengaluru tried hard to equalise but Jamshedpur, missing the services of skipper Peter Hartley due to suspension, sat back and defended well as a unit. The Blues' best chance of the half fell to Chhetri who could not turn in a brilliant Roshan corner despite having to head into an empty net after keeper T.P. Rehenesh committed early. The skipper dragged his header wide and had his hand on his head as his team went into the break trailing by that solitary goal.

The Marco Pezzaiuoli-coached team came out all guns blazing in the second period and Chhetri atoned for his miss just before halftime to fire home from inside the box after a long throw from Parag Shrivas saw the ball come off Bruno Ramires' legs and into the path of the veteran marksman.

In the next seven minutes, Bengaluru doubled their lead. The hard-working Naorem swung in a superb corner for Silva to nod in past an outstretched Jitendra Singh and into the back of the net. Bengaluru were all over Jamshedpur after taking the lead, Silva and Chhetri combining to almost set Udanta Singh in the clear only for Ricky Lallawmawma to intercept.

Silva doubled his tally in injury time, making the most of Narender Gahlot's botched clearance from a throw-in to beat a defender and fire into the far post from a tight angle. Jamshedpur had their chances but Chukwu and Stewart were denied from the goal line as it was Bengaluru's day in office.

 MATCH-76: 30.01.2022 : KERALA BLASTERS   <b><font color=red> 0-1 </b></font> BENGALURU FC :

Bengaluru FC rode Naorem Roshan Singh's brilliant strike to end Kerala Blasters' 10-game unbeaten run and break into the top-four for the first time this season with a 1-0 win in the Hero Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.

After a barren first half, Roshan scored a sumptuous free kick in the 56th minute to break the deadlock as the Blues moved to the fourth position having 20 points from 14 games while Kerala remained in third place with 20 points from 12 matches. They lost for the first time since their first game of the season.

Playing after more than two weeks, Kerala looked rusty in the opening exchanges with Bengaluru looking the more threatening side to break the deadlock. Danish Farooq and Prince Ibara came close to scoring but could not keep their efforts on target before Jorge Diaz's botched clearance hit Sunil Chhetri and almost went in but an alert Nishu Kumar cleared the ball off the line.

Both the defences kept things tight as a cagey half came to an end with both outfits cancelling eachother out.

Bengaluru deserved a goal all along and it came from a piece of individual brilliance early into the second half. Roshan, brilliant throughout the game and the season, curled in a delightful free-kick from just outside the box, his magical left foot sending the ball past a diving Prabhsukhan Gill and in the back of the net.

Kerala tried hard to draw level but lacked the cutting edge that have displayed this season in the final third. Harmanjot Khabra powered a volley straight at Gurpreet Singh Sandhu while moments later he was called into action again, smothering a Adrian Luna shot after he was set up by Diaz from the left-wing. Bengaluru came agonisingly close to doubling their lead but substitute Cleiton Silva saw his effort tipped away for a corner at the far post by Gill.

Udanta then set up Bruno Silva but his effort flew over the bar as Bengaluru pushed hard to make it 2-0.

It was blue all the way on Republic Day as Bengaluru FC rode on Udanta Singh's brace on either side of halftime to crush Chennaiyin FC's hopes of going top of the table with a 3-0 win in the Hero Indian Super League on Wednesday.

Iman Basafa opened the floodgates for Bengaluru who were missing first-choice goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu with Lara Sharma filling in for the star shot-stopper. Basafa converted from the spot in the 12th minute before Udanta made it 2-0 in the 42nd minute. The pacy winger struck in the 52nd minute too to take the game away from Chennaiyin and ensure his side moved to sixth in the table with 17 points from 13 games.

Chennaiyin remained fifth having 18 points from 13 matches, but a victory would have taken them top of the tree with Hyderabad FC having 20 points from 12 outings.

It was a frantic few minutes at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim after the Southern Derby got underway as both teams seemed desperate to nose ahead. Chennaiyin had a big chance in their bid to take the early lead but Lukasz Gikiewicz's shot from close ricocheted off the bar and went out.

Two minutes later, Bengaluru were awarded a penalty after Sunil Chhetri was fouled inside the area. Basafa stepped up to take the spot-kick and made no mistake, sending the keeper the wrong with a delectable penalty that thundered into the top left corner.

Chennaiyin tried hard to draw level with Germanpreet Singh and Vladimir Koman trying their luck but to no avail as both the efforts went wide.

Just before halftime, Bengaluru double their advantage. Chhetri was at the heart of the move and the iconic Indian captain showed composure and unselfishness of the highest order as he dummied his hit, cut into his left and put the ball on a plate for Udanta to score.

After the break, Bengaluru started bossing the game and got their reward very soon, Udanta doubling his tally with a cool finish rounding Debjit Majumder in Chennaiyin goal after snatching the ball from Mohd Sajid Dhot with Slavko Damjanovic failing to avert the danger too. It was Blues from there on as Prince Ibara and Rohit Kumar seeing their efforts bear no fruit.

Chennaiyin lacked attacking with up-front until Lallianzuala Chhangte forced Lara into a superb save to sum up a good day in office for Bengaluru.

Sunil Chhetri's 11-game barren run of goals in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) came to an end as he salvaged a point for Bengaluru FC in a 1-1 draw with FC Goa at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. Scoring his 48th Hero ISL goal, the India captain equalled the League's all-time record goalscorer, Ferran Corominas' tally.

Dylan Fox (41’) scored his first goal for FCG with a header until Sunil Chhetri (61’) equalised with his first of the campaign. The result keeps both Bengaluru FC and FC Goa in eighth and ninth place respectively in the points table with 14 points each.

The match began at a frantic pace which led to an early injury for Glan Martins who had to be replaced by Princeton Rebello inside the first 12 minutes. Roshan Naorem and Iman Basafa had their shots go narrowly off-target shortly after in a positive start for the Blues. The Iranian midfielder along with Danish Farooq also received a yellow card each in the first half for poor challenges.

Both teams exchanged blows for the remainder of the first half but did not create any meaningful scoring chances until Dylan Fox broke the deadlock. Jorge Ortiz was allowed space on the left flank to deliver a pinpoint cross. It found the centre-back on the far-post, and all Fox had to do was get his head on the ball to score his first goal of the season. Thanks to the goal, the Gaurs went into the halftime break with a slender advantage.

The second half saw BFC start purposefully but the Gaurs were resolute in defence and kept their attackers silent. Cleiton Silva came close to scoring the equaliser with a volley moments before the hour mark but his attempt went narrowly past the right side of the goal. However, it took a moment of brilliance from Sunil Chhetri who finally found the back of the net this season to bring the game level. He scored with a sublime header from Prince Ibara’s cross.

Two more BFC players in Roshan and Prince received yellows in the second half for mistimed challenges. Brandon Fernandes also made his first appearance of the campaign for FCG from the bench. Chhetri came close to scoring the winner deep into added time after his left-footed curling shot hit the crossbar. There was nothing to separate the sides at the final whistle and the points were shared as a result.

Bengaluru FC is up against Chennaiyin FC in their next at the Athletic Stadium on Wednesday whereas FC Goa will clash with Owen Coyle’s Jamshedpur FC at the same venue on Friday.

Bengaluru FC pile more misery on Mumbai City FC with a 3-0 victory in match number 56 of the Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda. The defending champions miss the chance to regain the top spot and have collected only two points in the last five matches whereas Marco Pezzaiuoli’s men are only three points away from fourth place in the points table.

Danish Farooq (8’) gave the Blues an early lead which was extended to three by Prince Ibara (23’, 45’) who scored a first-half brace with two towering headed goals.

Gurpreet Sandhu was called into action early who saved two attempts from Cassio Gabriel and Bipin Singh within minutes following the kick-off. However, it was BFC that took the lead through Danish Farooq, whose left-footed drive from outside the box gave no chance to Phurba Lachenpa in goal. Prince Ibara then joined the party after burying a header from close range to double the lead with only 23 minutes on the clock. The cross from Roshan Naorem was brilliant and the striker from Congo made no mistake in finding the back of the net.

The Blues continued to pile more pressure on the Islanders and created several scoring opportunities around the half-hour mark. Des Buckhingam’s men could not manage to contain the deficit to two goals as Ibara scored again with a header moments before the halftime whistle. Roshan Naorem was again the provider with an accurate corner which saw the tall forward leap the highest to head the ball.

The start of the second half saw more of the same, with BFC threatening to score. However, MCFC got more hold of the possession and created better chances to reduce the deficit. Sunil Chhetri was brought on to replace Ibara who left the pitch owing to an injury. Five minutes past the hour mark, Apuia saw his half-volley from long-range hit the right-sided post and come out.

Ajith Kamaraj replaced Naorem who was struggling with a muscle issue late into the match. The fourth official added five minutes for stoppages but MCFC could not break the BFC defence. The Blues held on to a well-deserved clean sheet and secured all three points in a sensational overall performance.

Bengaluru FC will next turn up against ATK Mohun Bagan at the PJN Stadium on Saturday while Mumbai City FC meets Kerala Blasters FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.

A resilient SC East Bengal held Bengaluru FC to a 1-1 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result extends SCEB’s winless run to nine matches while BFC’s hopes of securing playoffs qualification suffer another blow.

Semboi Haokip (28’) opened the scoring with a diving header until Sourav Das (OG 55’) handed the equaliser to the opposition with an own goal.

In a nervy start, SC East Bengal’s goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharja was shown an early yellow card for fouling Prince Ibara. On the other end, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu also had a rusty start as he misjudged a free-kick from deep that went unpunished. It took the 18th minute for either side to create a meaningful scoring opportunity when Lalrinliana Hnamte’s shot from the edge of the box was blocked by the BFC defence.

Roshan Naorem was shown a yellow card for a shirt pull and the subsequent free-kick led to Semboi Haokip breaking the deadlock just before the half-hour mark. He scored with a diving header which gave no chance to the keeper.

Alan Costa nearly scored the equaliser from Cleiton Silva’s free-kick a few moments later but his header went slightly over the bar. Marco Pezzaiuoli’s men kept pressing for an equaliser but went into the halftime break trailing. The restart saw the tactician send Sunil Chhetri to change the complexion of the match.

The equaliser finally came after a period of sustained pressure by the Blues in the second half. A cross from the right flank by Roshan was met by Sourav Das whose miscued header went past his own goalkeeper on the near post. Ibara was a constant threat and had the chance to give BFC the advantage after the hour mark but his header went over the crossbar. BFC was again denied the lead at the 71st-minute mark after Chhetri’s strike from 10-yards out was cleared on the line by Hira Mondal.

The Blues piled on more pressure as substitute Ankit Mukherjee picked up a yellow card for a bad foul on Ashique Kuruniyan in the late stages of the match. Udanta Singh also took an attempt at goal but he sliced across the ball which swerved away from the target. Five minutes were added for stoppages but neither side was able to find the winning goal as they settled for a point each.

SC East Bengal will be next in action against leaders Mumbai City FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Friday while Bengaluru FC also plays the Islanders in their next assignment at the PJN Stadium on Monday.

MATCH-45 : 30.12.21 : CHENNIYIAN FC <b> <font color=red> 2-4 </b></font> BENGALURU FC :

snapped a seven-game winless run to record a 4-2 victory against Chennaiyin FC in the Hero Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Thursday. Mirlan Murzaev (4th) helped Chennaiyin take the lead before Bengaluru scored twice through Cleiton Silva (39th P) and Alan Costa (43rd), albeit riding a bit of luck.

Rahim Ali (49th) got Chennaiyin level but Udanta Singh (70th) and Pratik Chowdhary (74th) ensured the Blues' wretched run came to an end as they moved to eighth in the points table from 10th with nine points from the same number of games. Chennaiyin remained on sixth place from eight games having 11 points.

The 'home' team were off to a perfect start as Murzaev fired home in just the fourth minute after Germanpreet Singh set him up on the left flank. The 31-year old Kyrgyzstan footballer racked up his second goal this season with a crisp finish after evading Alan Costa and Parag Shrivas. Murzaev celebrated with an acrobatic summersault as the Marina Machans went ahead in style.

Murzaev looked in supreme touch, breezing past four Bengaluru shirts to find Rahim Ali whose shot was saved well by Gurpreet Singh Sandhu. The Blues failed to get a grip of the game as Chennaiyin not only bossed possession but looked slick with the ball with some eye-catching passing play. Bengaluru needed a bit of luck and that came in the form of a penalty after a Ashique Kuruniyan shot hit Jerry Lalrinzuala's hand inside the box.

Cleiton Silva stepped up, paused in his run-up and slammed the ball to the lower right of the keeper. In four minutes, Bengaluru doubled their advantage after a Silva corner went in off Alan Costa's shoulder as Vishal Kaith needlessly came out of his line.

Bengaluru's lead was cut short soon after the restart due to poor goalkeeping by Gurpreet. The India No.1 failed to keep out a routine save from Rahim Ali who shot after being teed up by Murzaev.

In search of a third goal, Blues' coach Marco Pezzaiuoli replaced Prince Ibara with Sunil Chhetri and minutes later the legendary India striker was involved in Bengaluru's third goal as he passed the ball to Danish Farooq who slipped it to Udanta for the pacy winger to fire home from just outside the box. Kaith was responsible for handing Bengaluru a cushion as he let slip a regulation catch from a corner which fell to Pratik who scored with ease.

MATCH-36 : 20.12.21 : JAMSHEDPUR FC <b> <font color=red> 0-0 </b></font> BENGALURU FC:

Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru FC were involved in a game that had everything except a goal. The two sides played out an engaging goalless stalemate in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Monday.

Jamshedpur moved to the second spot on the table with 12 points but would rue their missed opportunity to close the gap on leaders Mumbai City. Bengaluru now have two draws in a row and their first clean sheet but languish at second-last with just 6 points.

Sunil Chhetri was named on the bench for the second game in a row. Jamshedpur were dealt a major blow even before the first whistle was blown. Lithuanian striker Nerijus Valskis pulled up with an injury during the pre-match warm up with Jordan Murray replacing him up top.

Udanta Singh had Jamshedpur in trouble early on. First, the India international failed to tap in from Ajith Kamaraj's cross and then minutes later, he ran past the defence to square the ball into the box, only to be let down by his strikers, who failed to reach on time.

MATCH-36 : 20.12.21 : JAMSHEDPUR FC <b> <font color=red> 0-0 </b></font> BENGALURU FC:

Brazilian midfielder Alex Lima had other plans at the opposite end. The Bengaluru defence failed to close down Lima as he swiveled past three men to take aim at goal. However, his attempt went wide.

Both goalkeepers were called into action multiple times in the first half. Hat-trick hero from last week, Greg Stewart crossed in a ball towards Murray but Gurpreet Singh Sandhu put in a critical clearance. Rehenesh TP's effort was more spectacular. Ashique Kuruniyan spewed in a ball from the left perfectly for Cleiton Silva, whose header was parried off brilliantly.

The change of ends brought more drama for the neutral as both team were handicapped by their own profligacy. Greg Stewart and Lima continued to be the focal points of attack for the Men of Steel but it was effective defending that kept BFC out of trouble.

Prince Ibarra had just a couple of shots, that too off target but Cleiton, who looked promising was substituted off for Sunil Chhetri with quarter of an hour to go with Marco Pezzauioli looking for inspiration from the India captain.

Chhetri almost pulled off a blinding winner in the 83rd minute. Ashique whipped in a long freekick that was headed goalwards by Chhetri. A slight deflection off Alan Costa and the ball bounced off the crossbar, summing up the evening of some evenly contested football.

MATCH-26- 11-12-2021 : FC GOA - (<b><font color=red> 2-1  </b></font>) - BENGALURU FC  :

Bengaluru FC were pushed near the bottom place as FC Goa handed the Blues a third consecutive defeat, emerging 2-1 winners in a Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 fixture at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. This was a second consecutive victory for the Gaurs in a match that saw two red cards and eight yellow cards.

Ashique Kuruniyan (16’ OG) scored his second own goal of the season, sending the Gaurs in an early lead before Cleiton Silva (45’) pegged them back with a sublime free-kick. Devendra Murgaonkar (70’) helped his team regain the lead and scored the winner after going down to 10-men.

Jorge Ortiz started the game on a bright note, being the source of several attacking opportunities. He seemed to have got on the scoresheet in the 16th minute but the goal was accredited to Ashique Kuruniyan who got the last touch on a rebound. Glan Martins was the first player to go in the referee’s book as he got a yellow card early in the match.

Sunil Chhetri’s woeful start to the season continued as he missed an open goal from 12 yards in his 100th appearance. Roshan Naorem then picked up a yellow post the drinks break. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu fumbled an easy backpass a few minutes later but managed to clear it to avoid conceding an embarrassing goal. Against the run of play, just before the halftime whistle, Cleiton Silva scored the equaliser with a curling free-kick from the left flank.

MATCH-26- 11-12-2021 : FC GOA - (<b><font color=red> 2-1  </b></font>) - BENGALURU FC  :

Substitutes Prince Ibarra and Parag Shrivas were sent by Marco Pezzaiuoli at the break to make an impact. Danish Farooq received a yellow card for a late challenge on Dheeraj Singh. In the 55th minute, goalscorer Ortiz received a red card for pushing Suresh Singh Wangjam after getting hit with a tackle from behind. The BFC midfielder also got booked along with Ibarra for reacting aggressively.

With 20 minutes left to play, Devendra Murgaonkar scored from close range, assisted by Ivan Gonzalez’s header after being left unmarked inside the box. Bruno Ramires and Parag also got booked later in the game for poor challenges before Suresh Singh received his second yellow and got sent off in the 84th minute.

Juan Ferrando’s men managed to hold on to their lead after the fourth official signalled six minutes of added time. As for the Blues, the fourth defeat in six matches piles even more pressure on the team to perform better in forthcoming games.

Bengaluru FC were left hapless as Hyderabad FC rode on Bartholomew Ogbeche's first-half strike to down the Blues 1-0 in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Wednesday.

Ogbeche found the back of the net in the 7th minute as his side dominated proceedings from the off to leave Bengaluru at ninth position with four points from five matches.Hyderabad jumped to third place courtesy the victory with seven points from four games.

The hosts started on the front foot and went ahead as soon as the seventh minute. Akash Mishra found Ogbeche after darting past a few white and blue shirts. The Nigerian then fired home from the edge of the box as the ball took a slight deflection to nestle in the back of the net past a diving Gurpreet Singh Sandhu.

Mishra looked in fine form as he teed up Ogbeche once again in the 17th minute but Gurpreet was off his line early to avert the danger. At the half-hour mark, Hyderabad had another chance to double their lead when Ogbeche dinked a fine ball for Javier Siverio but the latter agonisingly shot over the bar. Bengaluru conjured up a chance two minutes before halftime when Cleiton Silva whipped in a free-kick for Chhetri but the club captain glanced his header over.

Bengaluru upped the ante after the break with Cleiton at the centre of it. The 34-year old Brazilian found the target in the 56th minute but his shot lack power and was straight at Laxmikant Kattimani in the Hyderabad goal.

At the hour mark, Silva came closer when his attempt flew inches over the bar after substitute Danish Farooq set him up. Two minutes later, Silva was in the thick of things again. This time Farooq headed the ball down for Silva to take a swipe but the former Shanghai Shenxin footballer shot straight at the keeper again.

Chinglensana Singh almost gifted Bengaluru an equaliser when his botched clearance went just over the crossbar.

Mumbai City FC managed to defeat Bengaluru FC thanks to a 3-1 scoreline in their latest Indian Super League 2021-22 assignment at the GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa on Saturday.

Igor Angulo (9’) opened the scoring on the night by converting a penalty with immense composure. Cleiton Silva (20’) then scored with a sublime long-range direct free-kick bringing the game to equal terms. Mourtada Fall (54’) rose the highest to head the ball and send his team into the lead again. Ygor Catatau (85’) got on the scoresheet after coming on from the bench to seal the win.

The game got off to an electric start with Cleiton Silva hitting the crossbar with a powerful volley. On the eighth minute mark, BFC’s Alan Costa seemingly handled the ball inside the box during an aerial battle with Mourtada Fall. Referee Pranjal Banerjee pointed towards the penalty spot and Igor Angulo made no mistake in converting the spot-kick for his fourth goal of the season. Suresh Singh Wangjam received a yellow shortly after for a poor challenge.

On the stroke of 20 minutes, Cleiton Silva got on the end of a direct free-kick from 25-yards-out and found the back of the net with a sublime finish. The curling effort gave no chance to Mohammad Nawaz and brought the score to one goal each. BFC’s Prince Ibarra then had to leave the field after complaining of a muscle injury and was replaced by Edmund Lalrindika.

With two minutes left to the end of the first half, Lalrindika was brought down inside the box and the penalty was awarded to BFC. Sunil Chhetri stepped up but his attempt was brilliantly saved by Nawaz. The first half ended with nothing to separate both teams.

At the 54th minute mark, the towering Fall got on the end of a free-kick from Jahouh and headed the ball in the net, giving Gurpreet Singh Sandhu no chance of saving it.

Just after the hour mark, Cassio was taken off and replaced by Ygor Catatau. Seven minutes later, Raynier Fernandes’s low shot was saved brilliantly by Sandhu who was making his 100th appearance for the Blues. Then, Amey Ranawade took a yellow for a tactical foul on Rane. Chhetri also received a yellow card for a late challenge on Ranawade later in the second half.

Pezzaiuoli chose to replace Rane with Siva Narayanan in the 77th minute to inject more pace into the team. At the stroke of the 84th minute, MCFC put the win beyond doubt as Igor Angulo’s header hit the post but the rebound was expertly finished by Ygor Catatau to increase the lead to two goals.

Angulo was taken off along with Bipin, and the pair was replaced by Brad Inman and Gurkirat Singh. BFC also made two changes following suit by bringing Bidyashagar Khangembam and Danish Farooq for Chhetri and Suresh.

In a matter of four minutes, Ashique Kuruniyan turned hero to villain as his goals at either end cancelled out for Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters FC to share the spoils in a 1-1 draw in a 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) third-round game at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Sunday.

Ashique Kuruniyan (84' and 88' OG) first scored for the Blues and then for the opposition. Bengaluru now have 4 points from 3 games but Blasters still remain winless.

Marco Pezzauioli, on the back of the 3-1 defeat at the hands of Odisha, brought in more creativity with Iman Basafa slotting into midfield. Cleiton Silva returned to lead the line. Blasters too had a couple of changes. Puitea featured alongside Jeakson Singh in a double-pivot role as Alvaro Vazquez replaced Jorge Pereyra Diaz.

Bengaluru remained on top with superior ball possession early on but Blasters had Jeakson Singh almost create a favourable chance under two minutes itself. Ashique Kuruniyan's pace kept former teammate Harmanjot Singh Khabra on check with Iman Basafa looking settled in dictating play from the centre of the pitch.

MATCH-11: 28/11/2021 : BENGALURU FC  - (<b> <font color=red> 1-1 </b></font>) - KERALA BLASTERS :

However, it was a battle of tactics with Indian youngsters making for good viewing. Vincy Barretto and Ashique were involved in an intense tussle on the wings. Bengaluru deployed the idea of stretching the game wide with Sunil Chhetri repeatedly threading the ball onto the flanks for Ashique and Udanta bombing down the channels.

On the other side, Sahal Abdul Samad showcased some slick moves to beat Roshan Singh and cross inside the box. But, Ashique was equally adept at defensive duties, clearing off the danger, in the 23rd minute. There were some clumsy attempts from both sides but neither was able to trouble the opposition goalkeeper too much in the first half.

It was a frantic ten minutes after the change of ends. Cleiton and Udanta combined well to keep Blasters anxious. First the Brazilian shot wide and then lobbed the ball high over the bar. Albino Gomes in fairness, had it covered. Roles were reversed as Cleiton then found Udanta who blazed the ball wide. Surprisingly, Sunil Chhetri was substituted off at the hour mark, without having any substantial impact on proceedings.

The last ten minutes defined the script of the game. Ashqiue found the ball on the edge of the box. After toying with Khabra, he shot on the angle and a spill from Albino Gomes saw the ball go into the net. Moments later, it was anti-climax. A cross from the left saw Leskovic pip goalwards but Ashique, instead of clearing, shot right into his own net.

MATCH-6 : 24/11/2021 : ODISHA FC -(<b> <font color=red> 3-1  </b></font>) - BENGALURU FC :

It was Javi Hernandez (3', 51') who led the charge for Odisha with a brace. While he rode some luck for his first goal, the second was nothing short of breathtaking from just outside the box. Alan Costa (21') scored one for Bengaluru as Sunil Chhetri failed to convert a penalty kick. Aridai Suarez (90 + 4') sealed the deal for Odisha with a sublime goal adding more sheen to the win.

Bengaluru left Cleiton Silva on the bench while young Roshan Singh was given a run out at right back. Odisha lined up in a 4-3-3 formation with Kiko Ramirez's Spanish influence evident.

It was a horrible start for India goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who ventured out of his box in an attempt to clear a long punt from his counterpart Kamaljit Singh. A comedy of errors ensued as his mistimed clearance fell right for Javi Hernandez who lobbed the ball over the keeper and defenders into the net for Odisha to draw first blood.

Shell-shocked Bengaluru was still picking up the pieces after the opener when Jonathas, Odisha's high-profile signing in the summer found Nandhakumar Sekar with a one-two but the latter squandered the opportunity with a tame shot in the 12th minute.

MATCH-6 : 24/11/2021 : ODISHA FC -(<b> <font color=red> 3-1  </b></font>) - BENGALURU FC :

Odisha captain Hector Rodas had nodded the ball out for a corner kick which Roshan swung in from his left foot. Brazilian defender Alan Costa made use of his towering physique to rise the highest and head the ball into the net for the equaliser.

The former champions looked comfortable after their goal as the Odisha defence, led by Rodas was tested on multiple occasions before half time but remained unscathed. Five minutes into the second half, Jonathas was brought down by Udanta Singh on the edge of the box. Javi's left foot freekick left the entire Bengaluru wall for dead, as the Bhubaneswar side restored the lead.

Cleiton Silva was called upon and won a penalty at the hour mark. Sunil Chhetri stepped up only to be denied by the keeper but the follow-through, which was netted by Cleiton, was disallowed as he encroached the box before the shot was taken.

Bengaluru kept on pressing for an equaliser but that was not to be. Striker Prince Ibarra sliced a cross from Alan Costa over the bar as Sunil Chhetri struggled to mark his presence in the Odisha box. It was then Spanish Aridai Suarez who piled on more misery on the Blues in the final minutes of the match with clinical strides and a deft touch to find the back of the net to seal the match for Odisha FC.

Odisha, who finished bottom last season start their campaign with an encouraging victory while Bengaluru, who have 3 points from two games, would like to go to the drawing board and focus on their defense.

Former Bengaluru man Deshorn Brown almost provided the opener of the night with an acrobatic attempt in the very first minute. NorthEast United looked dominant in the opening exchanges but the game opened up right around the quarter-hour mark.

An entertaining eleven minutes ensued with four goals, two at either end. First up, Brazilian target man Silva made most of Udanta Singh's build-up play, to leave NorthEast defenders high and dry to complete a fine goal. Three minutes later, Deshorn Brown was to have his say in the game. VP Suhair on the left flank, brilliantly found Brown who with a controlled first touch, smashed into the net to draw level.

NorthEast then shot themselves in the foot. Ashique Kuruniyan lobbed the ball in from range, it rebounded off the crossbar and came back into play. Mashoor Shereef, instead of clearing it, scored an own goal. On the other end, new signing Mathias Coureur made amends for his teammate. Suhair yet again set up the move for Coureur to slot it in on the second time of asking, equalizing for the second time in the night.

Sunil Chhetri, desperate to get into the act squandered a chance but it was Jayesh Rane right before half-time who drove down a left-footer to bring up the fifth goal of the game. NorthEast looked visibly second-best post the break. Chhetri missed an easy chance before Sehnaj Singh was brought in by Khalid Jamil, who looked to the bench for experience.

The game descended into a tactical battle with multiple substitutions from both sides hampering the flow of the game late on. There was one bit left, where Alan Costa's long ball found Prince Ibarra, who cut in and finished with style. Bengaluru managed to hold on to the score and register all three points.
