Hello and welcome to the live coverage of today's Indian Super League action as the semi-finals kick off tonight with FC Pune City host Bengaluru FC in the first leg.
...
Hello and welcome to Sportkeeda's live coverage of the Indian Super League 2017-18.

After almost four months of excruciating football, the ISL has reached the semi-final stage. In the first leg of the first semi, Bengaluru FC pay a visit to FC Pune City at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune.

Ranko Popovic’s side finished fourth in the league with nine wins, three draws and six losses from their 18 matches. Marcelinho and Alfaro's partnership up top has been a key factor behind Pune’s success. Also, the young Indian players like Vishal Kaith, Sarthak Golui, Ashique Kuruniyan, Rohit Kumar and Sahil Panwar, have stepped up whenever called upon.

Alberto Roca's Bengaluru, in their inaugural season, have been simply incredible. They broke and created new records on their way to finishing first in the table. The likes of Sunil Chhetri, Miku, Udanta Singh, Dimas Delgado have performed consistently throughout the league stage and the onus will be on them once again in today's fixture.

This season, the semi-finals will see the away-goal rule come into play for the first time in the ISL, which makes it an even more interesting affair.

Stay tuned for all live updates.
