FT: Bengaluru FC 1-0 Tampines Rovers

A fantastic result for Bengaluru FC as the 8th minute goal from CK Vineeth gives them a precious lead in the first leg of the quarterfinal.

The home side will be satisfied with an encouraging display under new manager Albert Roca, but will be slightly disappointed to have not scored more, with Vineeth wasting a couple of promising positions.

The stands may have been empty, but Bengaluru FC will undoubtedly be pleased with a composed performance in midfield and defence, especially from the new signings Alvaro Rubio, Cameron Watson and Juanan Gonzales

...

90+3' Vineeth earns a foul with some clever hold up play, and BFC should be able to see out the game.

...

90+3' Tampines waste a good chance to get the ball into the box with a poor free-kick.

...

90+2' Albert Roca scream a couple of instructions as BFC retreat to absorb the pressure.

...

...

90' WHAT A WASTE! Vineeth does well to flick the ball onto Zuala who is free on the right, but he opts to cut the ball back to Vineeth who opts to recklessly shoot right at a defender!

...

88' Tampines make a couple of half-chances with BFC having a couple of nervous moments at the back with the ball bobbling in the box, but the Blues eventually get the ball clear.

...

87' Amrinder wastes a couple of seconds by keeping the ball alive in the box. It's clear what BFC's strategy is now, as Tampines begin to exert their pressure.

...

84' Malsawmzuala comes on for Lyngdoh.

...

80' WHAT A CHANCE!! Chhetri pounces on a failed clearance in the box and sells a brilliant dummy to wrongfoot two defenders, but with the goal at his mercy, he manages to find the keeper with a low, underpowered strike!

...

76' WHAT A STRIKE! Yasir cuts inside from the right wing on his left foot and curls a swerving effort at the top corner, but it flies narrowly over the ball.

...

76' Udanta Singh comes on for Alwyn George.

...

74' Another promising postion wasted! Rubio and Chhetri exchange a couple of passes as they charge through the middle, but Chhetri opts to cut inside instead of finding free players on the overlap. Predictably, Chhetri loses the ball.

...

72' WHAT A WASTE! BFC counter in a three-on-two situation, with CK Vineeth driving the ball forward on the right. With Sunil Chhetri in acres of space on the left, Vineeth opts to cut inside and shoot with his left, leaving his skipper screaming in frustration.

...

69' Sunil Chhetri earns a free kick from a long ball. BFC send most of their players up the pitch.

...

63' ALMOST! Rubio spreads the ball wide to Rino Anto on the overlap, and he sends in a tempting cross to the near post, but Chhetri fluffs his lines and Tampines scramble the ball clear.

...

62' Watson sends the delivery to an unmarked Chhetri at the far post, and the Indian skipper cuts the ball back only to see his cross cleared.

...

61' BFC have a corner as they look to put this game to bed.

...

57' OFF THE POST! Lyngdoh swings a cross to the far post, and Vineeth shoots a goal from a narrow angle, and Izwan is glad to see his effort bounce off the post.

...

56' Lalchhuante Mawai comes on for Nishu Kumar at left back.

...

55' Tampines have reasserted themselves and have created a couple of half-chances, but Bengaluru FC's defence stands firm.

...

49' Tampines counter on the right through Jordan Webb and he sends in a good cross that Amrinder does well to punch clear of danger.

...

49' Alvaro Rubio spreads the ball out wide to Rino Anto, who sends in a tempting cross, but there are no blue shirts in the box. 

...

47' A couple of misplaced passes and foolish fouls as both sides make a sloppy start to the second half.

...

46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Tampines get us underway!

...

HT: The teams are out on the pitch after the half-time team talks. The second half is seconds away from starting!

...

The second half is moments away from starting, can BFC hold on to their lead?

...

So, Albert Roca should be a very happy man - his first competitive half in charge of BFC has seen the team stick to his plan, with the Blues controlling the ball for large spells of the game. Sunil Chhetri and CK Vineeth have tormented the Tampines backline, and I wouldn't bet against either of them adding to the early opener.

...

42' Albert Roca looks very calm on the touchline - the Spaniard must be pleased with how the first half has progressed, as Chhetri chases a long ball forward.

...

41' WHAT A CHANCE! BFC is left unmarked at the far post, and guides a header towards goal, but Tampines gets their blocks in and clear.

...

35' Yasir pulls up with a knee injury and recieves treatment.
