ISL PRESS RELEASE : FC Pune City stopped Bengaluru FC from registering a record run of six consecutive victories in the Hero Indian Super League as they settled for a 1-1 draw at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru, on Friday.

Bengaluru FC had matched Chennaiyin FC’s five-match winning run of 2015 and were a match away from creating a record of their own. However, Sarthak Golui’s goal in the 20th minute gave Pune the advantage, while Miku ensured Bengaluru got at least a point with the equaliser in the 75th minute.

Bengaluru FC have already qualified for the semi-finals and continue to top the group with 34 points from 16 matches. A point may not have been enough for second-placed Pune City (29 points) to secure qualification for the playoffs but their coach Ranko Popovic can't be too unhappy how things panned out on the night.

Bengaluru FC started the first half in a commanding fashion but 20 minutes into the game they found themselves a goal behind against the run of play. The Pune goal came after Bengaluru FC right back Rahul Bheke's poor clearance fell kindly for Marcelinho who then made a darting run into the box before squaring the ball for his strike partner Emiliano Alfaro to have a strike at goal. But he instead of putting his foot through, laid it off for Golui to do the rest.

The home side enjoyed 60 percent of the possession in the first 45 minutes, and even after going a goal down they continued in the same fashion but failed to create clear-cut chances to go level.

After the restart, Bengaluru FC, who fielded a full-strength team, kept knocking on Pune City's goal and the pressure finally came to tell just with a quarter of the game left to be played. Substitute Semboi Haokip, who had come on to replace Lenny Rodrigues, won the ball in the Pune City box and crossed the ball at the near post for Miku to volley in his 12th goal of the season.

Just minutes after losing their lead, Pune had a great chance to regain the lead. Marcelinho’s reverse pass on the edge of the box put Diego Carlos through on goal. With just the goalkeeper to beat, the Brazilian took too much time to get his shot away and Gurpreet Singh was on his toes to mop up the danger.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Bengaluru FC continued their winning run in the Hero Indian Super League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over FC Goa to become first team to qualify for the knock-out at Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Friday. The league leaders have now won five successive games to further stretch their lead at the top of the standings. FC Goa, on the other hand, were left to rue a missed opportunity to get back into the top four.

Edu Garcia opened the scoring on the night for Bengaluru FC in the 35th minute, and then in the 82nd minute, Dimas Delgado strike made sure that the home side takes all three points from the game. FC Goa started the game on the front foot, but for all their keep-ball play in the first 30 minutes, there was hardly anything to test Gurpreet Singh Sandhu in the Bengaluru FC goal.

Bengaluru – who made seven changes in the playing eleven giving rest to their key players - slowly grew into the game as the first period of 45 minutes progressed. Edu Garcia gave the home side the lead. After having been made to chase the game, Bengaluru FC stepped up and the pressure came to tell in the 35th minute. Toni Dovale's well-driven corner kick from the left was met by the Spaniard at the far post, and the ball looped into the top right-hand corner of the goal, despite Bruno Pinheiro's best efforts to keep it out on the goaline.

In the second half, Albert Roca's sides kept pressing hard to keep FC Goa off their passing game, and it worked out pretty well. Under pressure from Bengaluru, the visitors were guilty of losing possession far too cheaply in the second half. Even when FC Goa did manage to develop something going forward, the final ball was still not there.

And just nine minutes before full time, Dimas Delgado sealed the game for Bengaluru FC with a well-taken shot from inside the box. After some clever play on the edge of the box between Boithang Haokip and Toni Dovale, the ball fell kindly for Delgado, and he calmly side-footed the ball past FC Goa goalkeeper Naveen Kumar.

Sergio Lobera's FC Goa has taken only one point out nine in their last three games. Even though, they still have a game in hand over fourth places Jamshedpur FC but the time is fast running out on them and now the pressure will surely be mounting on the former Barcelona youth coach.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Seiminlen Doungel became the first Indian player to score a hat-trick in this edition of the Hero Indian Super League as NorthEast United FC tore visitor Chennaiyin FC’s defence to shreds with a 3-1 victory at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium, Guwahati, on Friday.

NorthEast United had lost 0-3 against Chennaiyin FC in Chennai earlier in their first-leg clash. There is a huge gap between the two teams on the ISL table with Chennaiyin targeting a top spot and NorthEast trying to rescue their campaign. It seemed a mismatch but Doungel turned the tables on their rivals with a hat-trick, the first ever for NorthEast United since inception in 2014.

Doungel scored the opening goal in the 42nd minute to give his team the lead at half-time. In the second session, Doungel struck twice in the 46th and 68th minute to complete a hat-trick. Anirudh Thapa pulled a goal back in the 79th minute but there was no way NorthEast would allow their lead to slip away at home.

The win gives NorthEast United 10 points after 10 matches and keeps their chances of qualifying alive. Chennaiyin FC will retain their second position on the points table with 20 points from 11 matches.

NorthEast United had scored just four goals in their nine matches prior to this clash against Chennaiyin FC and it looked like they would draw a blank again. There was urgency but no direction to the home team’s attack and most moves fizzled out before reaching the danger zone. Chennaiyin FC too were not in their elements, although there were a couple of half-chances.

The home team, though, were rewarded for their efforts in the 42nd minute as Doungel made the first attempt on goal count. A ball just outside the box from Reagan Singh saw Doungel chest it back to Cezario. The striker weaved his way past two markers and fired a shot which goalkeeper Karanjit Singh didn’t collect cleanly and Doungel slotted it home from close range.

19 seconds into the start of second session, NorthEast United and Doungel were celebrating again with their second goal. A through ball from Danilo Lopes saw Doungel get to the end of it and finish it past the onrushing goalkeeper. Doungel then made it a special night by scoring his hat-trick in the 68th minute when he gave finishing touches to a square pass from Holicharan Narzary.

Chennaiyin FC, unbeaten for five matches, were stunned. Anirudh Thapa pulled a goal back in the 79th minute with a brilliant volley. But nobody was fooled into believing that they could get something out of this game with a late onslaught.

ISL PRESS RELEASE :A brace by Sunil Chhetri helped Bengaluru FC to a comfortable 3:1 win over Mumbai City FC in the Hero Indian Super League clash at the Mumbai Sports Arena on Thursday. The win takes Bengaluru FC back to the top of the ISL points table with 21 points.

Bengaluru FC opened the scoring on the night from the spot. With just barely minutes left for the halftime, Balwant Singh brought Sunil Chhetri inside his own box with a push from behind. The referee had no hesitation in awarding the away side a penalty. Chettri took the responsibility, and calmly slotted the ball past Mumbai City FC goalkeeper Amrinder Singh.

Before Chhetri gave his side the lead, Bengaluru was struggling to deal with Achille Emana, who made a few threatening runs from the midfield towards the opposition goal. MCFC created a few chances for themselves in a feisty first half, one of which fell to Balwant Singh. In the 35th minute, Everton Santos' cross from the right found Balwant but his header was well saved by Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh.

Just before conceding the penalty, Balwant could have been sent off after he swung his elbow at Harmanjot Khabra, who went tumbling down. The referee, however, took a lenient look at the incident, and the forward escaped with just a yellow card to his name.

Five minutes after the restart, Miku had a great opportunity to put the visitors two-up. The Spaniard was clear on goal with just Amrinder Singh to beat but he put his shot inches wides of the post. But that didn't matter much, barely minutes later, Chhetri was again on hand to score his seventh goal of the season and double his side's advantage.

After a driving run past Mumbai FC defenders, Udanta Kumam Singh found the Indian captain in the box and side-footed shot ended in the right-hand corner of the home sides goal.

Miku then sealed the result with Bengaluru FC third goal at the hour mark. A clumsy challenge just outside his own box by Gerson Vieira on the Spaniard gave the away side free kick. And this time, Miku made no mistake. His low driven shot was too hot for Amrinder Singh.

Leo Costa, who had come on as a substitute then gave Mumbai FC a flicker of hope with a goal in the 76th minute. After some good play with Balwant Singh, Costa managed to slip the ball through Bengaluru FC goalkeeper. But in the time that was left on the clock, Mumbai FC failed to do any further damage. Alexandre Guimarães men have now lost two back to back games at home and are currently placed 5th on the leader board with 14 points.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: FC Pune City leaped into fourth place after a brilliant 2-0 win over FC Goa at the Fatorda At here on Saturday. By dishing out another impressive counter-attacking performance, they snapped the home side’s streak of three consecutive wins.

It looked like both teams would cancel each other out until the 72nd minute when Marcelinho threaded a pass forward for Emiliano Alfaro, who clinically buried it past Laxmikant Kattimani. Alfaro had a chance to double the lead two minutes later but his shot didn’t have enough pace and was cleared away.

However, Pune finally had their second goal in the 84th minute when Jonatan Lucca gleefully converted after Mandar Rao Dessai’s clearance deflected into his path.

Despite having the better first half, Pune had to work hard and dig deep at times with Goa coming at them in full force in the second period. This was exemplified with Vishal Kaith’s triple save in the 70th minute, when he saved shots from Ferran Corominas, Brandon Fernandes and Manuel Arana as chaos ensued in the Pune box.

Apart from setting up the first goal, Marcelinho was heavily involved in the game, his swept effort and a ballooned shot coming seconds apart from each other in the 50th minute. But he was also in the middle of a penalty shout which the referee waved away. But while they have the attacking verve, Pune won this game on the merit of sitting deep and defending smartly.

They had to soak in a lot of pressure in the first 10 minutes of the match after Mandar and Brandon both got into dangerous areas only to see their shots blocked. It was interesting for Goa to try the long-ball tactic early on, but Pune’s defenders held tight and defended with ease.

But after that cagey start, the game suddenly opened up when Corominas dinked the ball over goalkeeper Kaith, but his attempt clipped the woodwork as the first notable warning shot was fired by the home side. Pune had a glorious chance themselves. Marcelinho was the architect with some incredibly individual ability, setting up Alfaro to tap in, which the striker somehow missed in front of an open net. With frustration setting in for Alfaro, he struck from distance, but his blistering shot was palmed away by Laxmikant Kattimani.

Diego Carlos and Manuel Lanzarote then carved out two half chances, but both went begging as some good goalkeeping and profligacy in front of the net meant the score stayed 0-0 at the break. The game had to come to life at some point, and when it did, Goa looked out of ideas going forward, allowing Pune to hit them on the break and take a valuable three away points.

Ranko Popovic’s methods are finally working, and Pune will host NorthEast United with a lot of confidence in their next match, which is on December 30.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Jamshedpur FC handed Bengaluru FC their second successive defeat at home as the visitors grinded out a 1-0 victory in the battle of the debutants at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru, on Thursday.

Bengaluru FC were keen to get back to winning ways after their defeat against Chennaiyin FC in the previous game. With the crowd backing them, they started well but, just like the previous clash, Jamshedpur FC had the last laugh with a dramatic winner in the 90th minute of play.


BENGALURU FC <b> <font color=red> 0-1 </b></font> JAMSHEDPUR FC
Trindade Goncalves kept his cool to convert a late penalty to give Jamshedpur full points for only the second time in this league and hand Bengaluru FC their third defeat in seven matches. Despite the defeat, Bengaluru FC (12 points) continue to be placed second on the table behind FC Goa, who now have two matches in hand and can open a gap at the top of the table. Jamshedpur have nine points from six matches, the same as FC Pune City.

The fierce battle seemed destined for a draw after both teams went close in either half but took a dramatic turn in the final minute of play. Substitute Sameehg Doutie made his trademark run towards the goal with the ball ahead of him and was tripped from behind by Rahul Bheke. The referee promptly awarded a penalty in the final minute which Trindade converted by showing nerves of steel.

It was a dramatic end to a match which could have gone either way in the 90 minutes of play. Jamshedpur, for instance, went close twice in quick succession in the 54th and 61st minutes. At first, Kervens Belfort had a golden opportunity to give his team the lead but goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh made a super save when his outstretched legs kept the close-range attempt away.

Seven minutes later, Belfort played a delightful through ball for Jerry Mawhmingthanga, leaving the Bengaluru defence in tatters, but Jerry’s effort missed the target by a whisker.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : A brace from Balwant Singh, both goals set up by Achille Emana, propelled Mumbai City FC to a 2-0 win over NorthEast United FC in Guwahati on Wednesday. The win took Mumbai into the top four of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) table, and banished the memories of a disappointing 0-1 loss against ATK at home.

The first goal was a howler as NorthEast's goalkeeper, Ravi Kumar, ran out of his area to challenge Balwant, with the Indian simply having to arrange it past him into a gaping goal from outside the box. The Indian looked as surprised as did all the fans, but it was his precision that eventually counted.

Mumbai City put the result out of doubt with a second goal in the 68th minute. A lapse in concentration from Rowllin Borges allowed Emana into a dangerous area from where he squared the ball for Balwant. With an open goal awaiting him for the second time in the match, he made no mistake whatsoever.

The goal came minutes after Balwant had missed a chance from close range. Emana was the man at it again, but his cross was headed over from yards away in an inexplicable miss.

MATCH REPORT: ISL MEDIA RELEASE - Dhanpal Ganesh’s dramatic winner, with just two minutes remaining at that, silenced the Fortress as Chennaiyin FC put it past hosts Bengaluru FC 2-1 in a sixth-round clash of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium here on Sunday.

In a match that was billed as a ‘Southern Derby’ with both coaches making it clear there was added motivation to win this one, Jeje Lalpekhlua provided Chennaiyin FC with the lead in the fifth minute.

It stayed that way till the end of the first half but Bengaluru FC, who have scored most of their goals in the second session, got the equaliser in the 85th minute. With five minutes still left to be played, Bengaluru FC fancied their chances of even securing the winner but the much-celebrated match-winner came at the other end as Ganesh headed home in the 88th minute.

It was a dramatic end to an invigorating clash that took them to 12 points from six matches, the same as Bengaluru FC and FC Goa, who have a match in hand. Chennaiyin FC, however, are placed third with an inferior goal average.

Chennaiyin FC won’t mind that, particularly because this victory comes after their loss in Mumbai. John Gregory’s side put up a commendable team performance, although it was a great defensive display from players like captain Henrique Sereno, Mailson Alves, Inigo Calderon and Dhanpal Ganesh which helped them hand Bengaluru FC their first defeat at home this season.

Chennaiyin FC were also helped by an early goal, scored by their top Indian goal-scorer, Jeje. It came in slightly lucky circumstances as Lenny Rodrigues's clearance deflected off Chhetri and landed right in front of Jeje who did well to slam it past goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu.

Bengaluru FC coach Albert Roca made six changes to his side as he rested Juanan, Subhasish Bose, Udanta Singh, Erik Paartalu and Braulio Nobrega along with goalkeeper Lalthuammawia Ralte and it showed in their performance as they could not impose themselves on the opposition. Even their highest goalscorer, Miku, who scored in the last four matches, was kept quiet throughout.

It was only in the second session that Bengaluru showed more urgency, and with Udanta on the field, chances came thick and fast. Captain Chhetri missed from close range early in the second half but more than made up for that miss with a superb equaliser in the 85th minute. Left unmarked, Chhetri simply picked up a pass from Toni Dovale and gave Chennaiyin goalkeeper Karanjit Singh no chance with his half-volley.

Chhetri appeared to have rescued a crucial point and saved Bengaluru's proud home record at the Fortress. However, Dhanpal Ganesh silenced the crowd in the 88th minute when he rose high to meet a corner from Rene Mihelic.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Kerala Blasters FC huffed and puffed their way to a one-goal victory over 10-man NorthEast United FC for their first win in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) this season at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi, on Friday.

CK Vineeth, returning from suspension, scored the only goal of the match in the 24th minute as Kerala Blasters maintained their record of never losing to NorthEast United in four years.

The hosts were in an advantageous position for the entire second session as NorthEast goalkeeper TP Rehenesh was sent off with a straight red card in the 43rd minute. NorthEast could never recover from that blow, although they could not be faulted for lack of effort.

Although Vineeth got the goal that mattered, the Hero of the match was debutant Wes Brown. The former Manchester United defender played his first match for Kerala Blasters and showed what they were missing all along. His solid performance in front of the back four was the key to Kerala’s first win this season.

It were NorthEast though who started stronger and with some good fortune could have even taken the lead. Striker Marcinho was a constant threat for the visitors and struck a good understanding with Martin Diaz.

Kerala calmed nerves for the hosts in the 24th minute with a gem of a strike from star man Vineeth. Captain Sandesh Jhingan released Rino Anto on the right with a long ball and Anto, with plenty of space ahead of him, made a superb run forward. He then played an inch-perfect cross inside the NorthEast goalmouth where Vineeth stunned everyone with a flying header.

There was a way back for the visitors but they needed to keep calm. In the 43rd minute, the match took a dramatic turn when Rehenesh was red-carded. From a quick counter-attack, the inspirational Courage Pekuson picked out Mark Sifneos with a through ball and goalkeeper Rehenesh mistimed his jump, catching Sifneos’s legs, instead of the ball.

Once the referee flashed the red card at Rehenesh, they were left with a mountain to climb. With the numerical advantage, Kerala always enjoyed the upper hand and it was the upright that thwarted them in the 57th minute when Lalruatthara’s close range shot seemed good enough for the second goal.

NorthEast had to rely mostly on counter attacks and they came close to securing an unlikely equaliser with just three minutes left to be played. A corner-kick from substitute Odair Fortes saw Danilo Lopes rise high to head, but the ball sailed agonisingly wide with nobody on hand to tap it home.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Bengaluru FC secured their position at the top of the table in the Hero Indian Super League after fighting back from a goal down to edge past 10-man FC Pune City 3-1 at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium, Pune, on Thursday.

Adil Khan put FC Pune City in the lead in the 35th minute, and the home team looked to be the better side in the first 45 minutes. The match, however, turned on its head in the second session after Pune defender Baljit Singh was sent off for a second yellow card in the 56th minute.

The hero, once again, for Bengaluru FC was Venezuelan forward Miku who scored two goals, in the 64th and 78th minutes of the game, while Sunil Chhetri hammered the final nail in the last minute of play. Bengaluru FC have now opened up a three-point lead at the top of the table. They have 12 points from five matches.

The ISL debutants didn’t look entirely convincing in the first session as they gave away the ball cheaply and looked fragile at the back. The defensive line was making uncharacteristic mistakes, giving Pune a clear look at the goal.

Bengaluru had just one shot on goal in the first session, although Sunil Chhetri had the ball in the back of the net but his attempt was ruled out for handball.

Pune, who had top scorer Marcelinho on the bench, surged ahead in the 35th minute, thanks to some brilliant work from Isaac Vanmalsawma. Midfielder Marcos Tebar kick-started the attack and found Isaac on the left. Isaac crossed the ball into the heart of the Bengaluru defence where nobody saw Adil burst from nowhere and finish with a super diving effort.

Bengaluru FC have scored seven of their 10 goals in the second session. Understandably they attacked with vigour in the second half and were helped by the sending off of Baljit, the second time in as many matches that Pune had a player red-carded. This time the red card came too early and Pune found it tough to defend thereafter.

Bengaluru’s equaliser came in the 64th minute through Miku, their highest goal scorer. Chhetri moved in from the left and saw Edu Garcia overlapping. He rolled the ball swiftly and the Spaniard simply pulled it back for Miku to finish from close range.

Miku scored his, and the team’s, second goal in the 78th minute with another exquisite finish after Garcia’s attempt was blocked by a rival defender. Chhetri then made the best use of Pune’s tired legs as he ran to meet a through-ball from Toni Dovale and calmly lifted it over the on-rushing goalkeeper, deep into added time. Ends

ISL PRESS RELEASE : FC Goa thrashed Kerala Blasters 5-2 in their Hero Indian Super League (ISL) clash at the Fatorda Stadium on Saturday to join Bengaluru FC at the top of the table. Like newcomers Bengaluru, Goa have nine points but an inferior goal difference.

Mark Sifneos opened the scoring on the night for visitors but Ferran Corominas’s second successive hat-trick in the Hero ISL took the game away from Kerala Blasters. Manuel Lanzarote also continued his good form for Goa by scoring two goals. Jackichand Singh was the only other Kerala player to get on the scoresheet

Kerala Blasters had an unfortunate start to the game. The visitors’ marquee player Dimitar Berbatov had to be taken off due injury in the fourth minute of the game. But that didn't seem to have any effect on Rene Muelesteen's side who opened the scoring in the seventh minute. Jackichand Singh's pinpoint cross into the box from the right wing found Mark Sifneos. The Dutch striker's shot crept under FC Goa goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani into the goal.

Manuel Lanzarote levelled the score for Goa with a side-footed volley two minutes later. The Spanish import then handed the home side the lead in the 18th minute of the game. Some sloppy play at the back by Kerala Blasters goalkeeper Paul Rachubka gave Lanzarote an opportunity to have a go at the goal and he obliged with some style and precision.

FC Goa, however, couldn't hold on to the lead for long. Jackichand Singh equalised for Kerala at the half-hour mark after some one-touch play on the edge of the box between him and Milan Singh opened up Goa's defence. Both sides went in the half-time with the scoreboard reading 2-2.

In the second half, it was the Coro show. Having scored a hat-trick in the previous game, FC Goa's Spanish forward followed that up with another hat-trick in just seven minutes to take the game away from Kerala Blasters.

Just three minutes into the second half, Ahmed Jahouh’s through ball put Coro clear on goal, and the in-form striker slid past Rachubka to restore Goa's lead. Two minutes later, Kerala's defence was opened up again thanks to a similar move. This time, Pekuson put the ball through and Coro lifted in over the goalkeeper to double the home side's lead.

Muelesteen's side looked shell-shocked and their defence was breached again in the 55th minute. Lanzarote’s low cross from the right was turned in by Coro who duly completed his hat-trick.

The visitors tried to get back into the game but couldn't find a way.
