Bengaluru FC vs East Bengal FC

Katsumi Yusa along with Al Amna make a strong midfield pair for East Bengal FC

While Jamil is a more pragmatic coach who prefers to utilise pace to hit teams on the counterattack (a hallmark of his league-winning Aizawl FC side), Bhowmick's approach in a team that has players comfortable on the ball has been more fruitful. "There is always a temptation to try to think creatively for a final". For the third time in four matches here, BFC fell behind when Kromah provided East Bengal with a 28th-minute lead.

Bengaluru have been clinical all through the tournament, always finding the answers to come away with a win.

Bengaluru had shown enormous character and fight to make a tremendous comeback against Mohun Bagan in the semi-final despite being 10-men down and the Blues only carried forward that spirit.

East Bengal, on the other hand, have been doing enough to progress.

Having previously beaten Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan 4-2 in the semifinal, Bengaluru were the favorites to lift the Super Cup.


BFC made the man advantage count in the second half, with two quick goals. Both clubs netting one goal a piece. Will the Kolkata football giants pay a price for this, the second half will tell the story. Right-back Mallick was sent off at the stroke of half-time for lashing out at Subashish Bose and punching him in the face following an attempt at a rash challenge by the Blues left-back. Horrible. He should not have done that in a match like this, fails to keep his nerves. FREE-KICK for Bengaluru from near 30 yards.

Bheke found the equaliser for Bengaluru towards the end of the first half with an accurate header off a corner.

However, two draws in those two games against Shillong Lajong and NEROCA FC scuppered their chances and Khalid Jamil's men finished fourth.

Barring a few players like Eduardo Ferreira, Katsumi Yusa and Mahmoud Al Amna, none of the players could stake an automatic claim in the East Bengal starting XI during the I-League season. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu failed to clear it and the Ugandan scores off a bicycle kick.

"Samad Ali's red card was harsh, it could have been a yellow card". Chhetri shows good footwork to make his way around the EB penalty box and then wins a corner.
