ISL MEDIA RELEASE: Late goals in Hero ISL Match 9 before the first season break, kept the audience on edge of theior seats as it set up an unforgettable night of football at the Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday, with Jamshedpur FC holding Bengaluru FC to a 2-2 draw. Nishu Kumar's stunning volley at the stroke of half-time put the hosts ahead. Youngster Gourav Mukhi made history when he came on for Jamshedpur FC as substitute and scored on his debut to equalize. Sunil Chhetri's header in the 88th minute was cancelled out by Sergio Cidoncha's effort in added time (90+4).

Tim Cahill and Michael Soosairaj got their much-awaited debuts in the Hero ISL as Jamshedpur FC head coach Cesar Ferrando named an attacking side to take on last season's finalists. Carles Cuadrat's Blues were unchanged from their 1-0 win over defending champions Chennaiyin FC. Ferrando's side started the game on the front foot but the first real threat came from the home side 12 minutes into the match. Udanta Singh's blistering pace allowed him to race past winger-turned-left-back Bikash Jairu into space on the right flank. The winger's cross, however, failed to reach Sunil Chhetri and was cleared by Tiri at the centre of the box.

Cahill looked to get in on the act by teasing a through-ball into space for Jerry Mawhmingthanga. The right-sided winger had time to pick out Soosairaj's run into the box but the youngster's cross was struck with too much force. The Men of Steel piled up the pressure as the first-half progressed but their final delivery into the box lacked clarity. Mario Arques struck a dangerous free-kick at Gurpreet Singh's goal but it sailed inches over the bar and had the goalkeeper's eyes on its trajectory all the way through.

The midfield battle was proving to be difficult to win for both teams. The forwards were kept under watch and the ball was often played into the wide areas for crosses into the box. Sunil Chhetri's clever free-kick from the right flank was aimed at Xisco Fernandez who was waiting at the edge of the box. The Spanish midfielder's sweet volley flew inches past the post and was an alarm signal for what was to come.

Two minutes later, another free-kick, earned by Miku and taken by Xisco, was headed clear initially by Tiri. The ball fell to Nishu Kumar outside the box who unleashed a stunning strike into the top left corner of the net, leaving Subhasish Chowdhury helpless and stunned. Miku was proving to be a difficult for the Jamshedpur defence. He ran in behind the defence and squared a good through-ball across the face of goal, inviting Chhetri who failed to make a connection.

Ferrando replaced defender Gaikwad with Mobashir Rahman and the midfielder almost pulled off another long-range goal. A brilliant strike from outside the box was kept out of the top right corner of the net by the outstretched hands of Gurpreet Singh. With 19 minutes left on the clock, 16-year-old forward Gourav Mukhi replaced Jerry to become the youngest ever player to make his debut in ISL. Ten minutes into his debut, the youngster produced a moment of brilliance to bring Jamshedpur back into the game.

Mukhi outmuscled Serran as he raced into the box to receive Maria Arques' chip and slotted the ball past Gurpreet Singh for the equaliser.
Just as the Blues faithful thought they were done for the day, Harmanjot Khabra's long ball into the box from the right flank was headed into the net by Sunil Chhetri to put the hosts back into the lead in the 88th minute.

However, Jamshedpur FC showed gumption as they pulled one back right at the death. Arques’s cross into the box saw Cidoncha place his effort into the far post to ensure that they pick a crucial point away from home. A hard fought draw earned today kept Jamshedpur FC unbeaten run here at the Kanteerava Stadium.

MATCH REPORT:

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: Bengaluru FC got their Hero Indian Super League campaign off to a perfect start with a 1-0 win over defending champions Chennaiyin FC at the Sree Kanteerava stadium, Bengaluru, on Sunday.

In what was a repeat of last season’s final at the same venue, Miku’s 41st minute strike was enough for the Blues to overcome the visitors’ challenge. Chennaiyin FC will be disappointed as they got nothing out of this game, particularly after they were gifted two gild-edge chances to take the lead.
Bengaluru, though, were quick to get off the blocks with Eric Paartalu being gifted an excellent chance as early as the third minute. After some scrappy play in the Chennaiyin box following a throw-in by Rahul Bheke, the loose ball fell to the Australian midfielder’s feet but his snap shot was aimed straight at goalkeeper Karanjit Singh.

The visitors started to gain a foothold in the match through their quick breaks as the minutes wore on and they should have drawn first blood midway into the game. Gregory Nelson and Jeje Lalpekhlua broke at pace following an error by Bheke and Nelson’s perfectly threaded through ball left the India striker one-on-one with Gurpreet. As the Bengaluru goalkeeper rushed forward, Jeje slotted the ball for a completely unmarked Germanpreet Singh but his pass was over-hit with the Chennaiyin midfielder unable to direct it towards an empty goal.
Bengaluru were seeing plenty of the ball but failed to make it count while Chennaiyin continued to look dangerous on the break. Another Bheke mistake around the half an hour mark almost gifted Chennaiyin with a goal after his poor back-pass was intercepted by Jeje. The off-balance Chennaiyin forward had only Gurpreet to beat but lost his footing.

Gurpreet then pulled off a fine save from a long-distance effort by Germanpreet before Bengaluru took the lead against the run of play.
Xisco Hernandez won the ball following a midfield scrap and quickly released Miku behind the Chennaiyin defence with a perfectly weighted pass. The Venezuelan striker unleashed a thunderbolt of a shot which, despite being aimed at Karanjit’s near post, left the Chennaiyin goalkeeper with no chance.
The visitors came close to grabbing an equaliser straight after the interval following a long-throw into the Bengaluru box. The resulting loose ball fell to Inigo Calderon at the edge of the box whose blocked shot fell to Eli Sabia with his back to goal. The central defender’s clever backheel unfortunately was directed straight to the rival goalkeeper.

The visitors took the game to the opposition in the second period with Bengaluru looking dangerous on the break. One such break in the 72nd minute found Sunil Chhetri with some space in the Chennaiyin box but Calderon was quick to recover and deny the Bengaluru skipper the chance to put the match to bed.
Gregory threw caution to the wind in the closing stages by bringing on striker Carlos Salom for defender Mailson Alves. But while Chennaiyin threw the kitchen sink, the hosts held on to their lead for a perfect start to their campaign.
