ST – Adam Le Fondre 7.1: Adam was a very strategical positioned by Sergio Lobera, where Adam would drop deep to link play between midfield and attack.

Bengaluru FC was lacking the mettle to overcome the deficit created within minutes of the first whistle. Great game for our youngsters – Suresh Wangjam, Ajith Kumar, Amey Ranawade, and Pratap Singh.
