FT: A job well done, the place felt nervous around the seventy-minute mark when Roby Norales came on. He was the one, with his energy and movement, who changed the game for Bengaluru FC.

Chennai did their bit too, they were resolute in defence for the most part, and a couple of mistakes aside, they might have come away with something today.
...
93' Close, Udanta tries to slip one through to Roby, but Karanjit collects. He has done that quite well today, has been quick coming off his line,
...
Bengaluru FC have slowed down the game, and understandably so. 
...
Additinal Time of six minutes.
...
87' Foul at the edge of the box, chance for Sunil Chhetri. A bad challenge from Rejin. Almost in from Juanan.

...

...

...
The goal came from a really unnecessary freekick from Rejin. 
...
75' Freekick for Bengaluru FC in a very promising position. Khabra takes it, and the ball falls to ROBY NORLAES. He slots it home. GOAL!!!

...
73' Dhanpal Ganesh with an extremely speculative effort, goes well wide. 
...
71' A bit of wasting time from Chennai City sees Albert Roca come into the pitch to retrieve the ball.
...
This is 4-4-2 again from Bengaluru with Sunil on the left, and Udanta on the right. Roby and CK through the middle.
...
Daniel come off for CK Vineeth.
...
68' Lenny's through ball, Roby makes a crossfield run, but is just ahead of him, he gets a touch on the ball, but can't stop his momentum.
...
67' Sunil Chhetri caugh offside from a freekick from Ralte, as he was left unmarked in the box.
...
65' A sweeping move from Bengaluru FC, the ball though is just slightly over-hit, and allows Karanjit to collect.

...

50' Chance for Tank to send the ball into the box, he does a couple of step-overs, and the ball in is poor.

...
47' Good interplay between the two Bengaluru FC youngsters Udanta and Daniel, but the winger leaves the ball behind when Roy attacks him.
...
46' Patient posession from Bengaluru FC, but they haven't broken the lines yet.
...
HT: It's a stalemate at the home of the champions. Bengaluru FC have had the better chances in the first half, but they have been unable to finish it off. Perhaps it is time for a certain Roby Norales. 

Chennai have done their bit, they have defended well, and perhaps deserve to go level.
...
45' Lenny goes for a shot from outside the box, but though he catches it okay, it is high and wide. 
...
44' That was a rash one by Prashath on Sena Ralte, lucky to get away without a yellow card.
...
43' A good run down the right by Tank, he outpaces John, but his left footed shot is wide.
...
41' Another dink down the middle from Lenny, but is just a tad too heavy for Sunil Chhetri.
...
39' Lenny covers for Sena Ralte this time against Prashath, and he doesn't get caught by the trick. Ralte any thoughts?
...
35' Corner for Chennai City, as Prashanth gets the better of Ralte yet again. The ball in though, is over-hit, as Bengaluru regain possession.

...
33' Khabra with another cheeky touch, but when he has to swing the ball in, he mishits it. Chennai holding fort.
...
32' Prashanth is constantly getting the better for Sena Ralte, the latest ball in by the U-22 player is cleared by Juanan.
