Bengaluru FC outclass 10-man East Bengal to lift inaugural Super Cup

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

Bengaluru FC rallied from behind once again to beat East Bengal in the final of the inaugural Hero Super Cup in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha. The first incident came in the 7th minute when Gurpreet Singh made contact with East Bengal striker Ansumana Kromah just outside the penalty box which only resulted in a yellow card, much to the dismay of the East Bengal fans.

Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Sandhu produced an excellent save in the 57th minute to keep out a well taken free-kick by Mehmood al-Amna. Miku added a third goal three minutes later before the Indian skipper added another in the dying minutes with a fine header to wrap up the win.

The two rivals showed some attractive football in the first half, but it was followed by a one-sided second half where Bengaluru FC dominated the 10-man East Bengal.

The second half saw more open football with Bengaluru creating the better chances.

The game came to life in the 28th minute when East Bengal took the lead quite against the run of play.

East Bengal continued to narrow down the goal deficit but all attempts went in-vain and Sunil Chhetri scored the fourth goal for Bengaluru in the 90th minute.

Miku and Perez missed a few chances but kept up the attack.

In the 68th minute, the ball hit the extended arm of Gurwinder Singh inside the box, with BFC being awarded a penalty.

Bengaluru's captain, Chhetri was awarded man of the match for his double strike, while his teammate Miku was given the player of the tournament award.

It was Bengaluru FC's fifth title in as many seasons of the club's existence.

The Kolkata giants though seem to have buckled up as they have come up with strong performances in the ongoing Super Cup tournament. The Red and Golds defended valiantly in the second half but could not prevent the Blues from finding the back of the net three times in the last quarter of the game.

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.

"Talking about this game, everybody worked very hard".
