...
That's all for today. We shall see you again, next game. 
From everyone here at Sportskeeda, it's Good Bye and Good Night. 
...
So, basically Bengaluru made use of their chances, unlike Goa and that showed on the scoreboard. 
So, the league leaders seem to be brushing aside every challenge thrown at them. The question that remains is, can they emerge Champions, this season? Only time will tell. 
...
Bengaluru had good control over the game in the first half. Apart from a few moments of individual brilliance, Goa never really posted a threat for Gurpreet in the Bengaluru goal. Goa went into the half, a goal down. 
However, Goa seemed to start the second half with a lot of confidence, putting the Bengaluru defence under pressure right from the word go. Bengaluru however, weathered the onslaught and slowly went back to controlling the pace, slowly it down and later on adding to their lead through Dimas. Goa had a few chances which they should have converted, the most glaring of them being that of Lanzarote. With the ball at his feet in front of goal and with only Gurpreet to beat, he should have scored. 
...
And there we have it. The final whistle has gone. It ends at 2-0, with a comfortable victory for Bengaluru Fc. 
...
90+3' Bengaluru not letting Goa off the hook yet. There's a great run down the left flank and the ball is put into the middle. It's  the substitute Boithang who meets it with his head. It's a good save by Naveen Kumar, down to his right. 
...
90+2' Goa seem to have accepted the defeat. Their passes are not accurate and are giving away possession to Bengaluru. Dimas has already been adjudged to be the Hero of the Match.

...
90' It's four minutes on the board. Bengaluru trying to keep their clean sheet intact.
...
88' In between the two Bengaluru substitutions,  Fc Goa get a shot in on goal. They get the ball in the box, right in front goal at the right post. One-on-one with Gurpreet, the custodian is relieved to have the shot come straight at him. Fc Goa, can't make anything of the rebound.  
...
SUBSTITUTION(Bengaluru) : Nishu comes off for Subhashish 
and also

Sunil Chhetri comes off for Daniel.


...
86' SUBSTITUTION (Fc Goa) : Jahouh comes off for Pronay
 
...
83' GOAL !
It's terrible defending from Goa. Three-four Bengaluru players are allowed to come and exchange passes right at the edge of their box. They try to clear the ball , but it falls to Bengaluru and the ball is put forward for the onrushing Dimas, who is played onside by Seriton and calmly slots it home.
...
81' Goa sometimes showing little signs of life, but it's mostly Bengaluru in control. Like now, as the ball is launched forward for Chhetri who has ghosted to the middle. Now, he is fuming at the referee as he feels he was brought down illegally. 
...
SUBSTITUTION (Goa) : It's a double change for Goa. Pinheiro comes off for Boumous and the unfortunate Narayan Das is off for Sana.
...
76' It's another corner for Goa. Gurpreet comes out to punch and misses it completely. Luckily for him there's no Goa player behind him , to pounce on the chance.
...
74' The fire in Fc Goa's belly, seems to have died down a bit. Bengaluru slowly starting to control the game again. But, Fc Goa win a corner. It's whipped in at the first post, gets cleared by Chhetri. 
...
72' Bengaluru have a corner. Dimas takes it. It's headed towards goal by Johnson, but straight at the keeper. 
...
69' SUBSTITUTION(Bengaluru Fc) : It's the first change of the match. It's Boithang on for Semboi.
...
66' BOOKING :  That's an extremely rash challenge by Coro. The referee has a big decision to make. Coro had his studs up, but his foot actually connects with his own teammate Narayan Das. It surely has to be a case of mistaken identity for Narayan Das, as for some reason the referee issues an yellow card to him. It's salt in the wound for him, as he gets booked after his own teammate takes him out.

...
64' Bengaluru get an attack going. The ball is rolled to Lenny in the middle and he goes for goal from a long way out. But, it's a good shot, and compels Naveen to make a save.
...
62' After some scrappy play by both teams near the half-line, Goa come away with the ball. But it's wasted on an overly ambitious shot, which Gurpreet is content to see sailing miles over his goal.
...
The match finally seems to have some life. An argument breaks out in the middle of the pitch between Ali and Johnson.
...
59' BOOKING - It's a yellow card for Dimas.
...
58' Chhetri trying to make amends now. He chests a throw, and with a beautiful turn, volleys towards the left top corner. It's a stinging shot saved well by Naveen.
...
56' The ball in is defended well and now Bengaluru can counter with it. It's a good run down the left by the experienced Chhetri with three on his right, but the pass by him is not that good.
...
55' It's Bengaluru on the ball and they, on the other hand, seem to be in absolutely no hurry. Slowing the game down every chance they get. However, Fc Goa have won a corner. This is a good chance for them to get back into the game.  
...
53' Goa seem to be going for the jugular, this half. They manage to keep a good spell of possession an and are creating successive waves of attack on the Bengaluru defence.
...
50' Gurpreet launches the ball from his box, high upfield to Sunil Chhetri on the left flank. He gets it under control and wins a corner. The ball goes out wide and is put into the centre, but Goa can deal with it.
...
48' It's the first corner of this half for Fc Goa. Malanza is involved in a scuffle in the box and is giving the referee an animated description of it, visibly unhappy.
...
In case you are just joining us, it's Bengaluru Fc. in the lead, due to a header by Edu Garcia.

...
There's the whistle and Fc Goa start us off for the second half.
...
And we're back with the second half. The players are coming onto the pitch.
...
The Bengaluru defence is communicating well and is snuffing out the chances for Goa, quite successfully. Goa really need someone to step up and take charge. There hasn't much pressure from them on the Bengaluru defence. Apart from a stinging shot from Manvir, Gurpreet hasn't been tested much Goa. They will really have to Up the Ante, in the second half if they want to win this match. At the moment, Bengaluru are firmly in control with a lead in place and they defence holding it's own. 
...
There's the whistle for Half-Time, and this half, the score still remains at 1-0, in favour of arguably the better team, Bengaluru Fc. 
...
45+1' The ball is lobbed up the pitch by Goa and Gurpreet, aware of his surroundings comes out to accept it.
...
There is one minute added to first half.
...
44' With just one minute left of normal time left before Half-Time, Fc Goa win a corner. However, they cannot make good on the chance and Bengaluru win a free-kick.
...
42' Fc Goa earn a free-kick in the opposing half thanks to a challenge from Johnson. The ball is swerved into the long line of players waiting, but it's headed out by Bengaluru.
...
38' Bengaluru don't seem to be satisfied with just one goal. They are now really putting the pressure on the Goa back line. They force a defensive mistake from Goa, but Naveen is straight off his line to smother the chance.
...
36' GOAL 

Dimas takes the corner and floats the ball right into the middle of the Fc Goa box and there's Edu Garcia who heads the ball home. Goa, have a man at the post, but the ball just loops over him, despite his jump.
...
34' Bengaluru trying to tighten the screws and this time it's Sunil Chhetri in action. He puts the ball in and wins a corner.
