Raphael Augusto was the driving force for Bengaluru FC in the middle of the park. The Brazilian player had an excellent outing against his former club, creating four chances and making six tackles. Augusto also assisted Sunil Chhetri for the second goal.

The 28-year old had good link-up play with Dimas Delgado and Erik Paartalu in the midfield. Augusto also set up Udanta Singh and Ashique Kuruniyan on the flanks frequently.

Having him play behind the striker could solve Cuadrat's goal-scoring woes. Augusto's creativity and vision will work well with Chhetri's runs inside the box.

#Flop - Andre Schembri

Chennaiyin FC continued their goal drought from the previous season and are yet to score after four games of the ISL season. Andre Schembri was signed by the club with great hopes but the forward hasn't found his rhythm for the Marina Machans yet.

Against Bengaluru FC, the Maltese player had only 21 touches on the ball and two shots that were off target. Schembri was often out of position on numerous occasions and could make no eye-grabbing moves inside the opposition box. The 33-year old was eventually substituted in the 61st minute.
