Durand Cup 2019: Suresh Singh's goal earns Bengaluru FC a draw against Army Red- As it happened

By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedAug 05, 2019 17:02 IST

FT| (81' Suresh Singh (P)) Bengaluru FC 1-1 Army Red (45' Liton Shil)


17:02 (IST)5 AUG 2019

FT| PEEEP! PEEEP! PEEP! It has finished 1-1 here. Both the teams missed plenty of chances and I would say 1-1 is a fair result. Don't go anywhere as I, Abhishek Kundu, have double duty today and will bring to you the live commentary of ATK vs Indian Navy game in the Durand Cup. 

17:00 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90+6' WIDE! Last chance of the game and BFC has rued it. Advait Shinde twists and turns and sets up Suresh Singh from outside the box but his effort goes astray. 

17:00 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90+5' TACKLE! A brilliant tackle from Kamardeep Singh from behind. Got the ball 

16:59 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90+4' Suresh Singh has been judged the Man of the Match but apart from the spot-kick, nothing great from him. 

16:57 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90+3' Yellow card to captain Suresh Meetei. Unnecessary right in the middle of the pitch. It is his second yellow in the tournament. So, he misses the next game against Jamshedpur FC. 

16:56 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90+1' SHOT! Army Red right winger is through on goal but he gets confused whether to take a shot or put up a cross. The ball ends up safely in the hands of Aditya Patra. 

16:54 (IST)5 AUG 2019

90' WASTE! Suresh's outswinger deceives everyone and Gursimrat's shot from inside the box balloons away. It is still 1-1 here. And, six minutes are added on. 

16:53 (IST)5 AUG 2019

89' Disappointing. Suresh Singh got selfish here by not releasing the striker in the left-wing. He thinks of going solo but ends up only winning the corner. 

16:52 (IST)5 AUG 2019

88' A good move from the right by Army Red. Aditya Patra fumbles in his first attempt but catches it eventually. 

16:51 (IST)5 AUG 2019

85' End to end stuff here. BFC has lost a golden opportunity to take the lead. On the counter, Suresh Singh is one-on-one but takes it away and decides to lay it off for the striker. However, his pass is misplaced and the scoreline remains 1-1. 

16:50 (IST)5 AUG 2019

84' CHANCE! And, Army Red had a wonderful chance to get ahead. Zothanpuia with a brilliant long ball but Mukesh fails to tap it home. 

16:47 (IST)5 AUG 2019

82' GOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL! Suresh Singh blasts it and makes it 1-1. The goalie guessed correctly but the shot had so much venom in it that the ball found the back of the net eventually. Not a good penalty although, I would say. 

16:45 (IST)5 AUG 2019

81' Penalty to Bengaluru FC! Alwin E fouls Namgyal Bhutia and BFC has a wonderful chance to get back here. He was going away from the goal. Not needed to make a foul there. 

16:44 (IST)5 AUG 2019

80' Bengaluru FC players are tired now. Can't trackback here. But, Army Red fails to make a big impact. 

16:43 (IST)5 AUG 2019

79' Army Red with their final change.

OFF- P Jain
ON- Alwin E

16:42 (IST)5 AUG 2019

78' Liton Shil again with a menacing run but puts too much power on the final touch and Aditya Patra collects it comfortably. 

16:40 (IST)5 AUG 2019

76' Nothing. We head into the last quarter and Army Red's superiority in the air means Bengaluru FC gain nothing from the corner-kick. 

16:39 (IST)5 AUG 2019

75' Bengaluru FC's free-kick comes to nothing and now, they have a corner kick. 

16:38 (IST)5 AUG 2019

74' SHOT! Jain P takes a long-range effort from outside the box but it goes safely to the hands of Aditya Patra. 

16:35 (IST)5 AUG 2019

71' And, we have another water break. Bengaluru FC's coach Noushad Moosa needs to make the most of it. Remember in the previous water break, Army Red came out as a totally different side and got the goal. Can BFC come up with something similar?

16:33 (IST)5 AUG 2019

69' CHANCE! And, Army Red huffs and puffs to save the goal. The entire defense line was clueless but Bengaluru FC's strikers were equally clueless to convert Biswa Dorjee's striker. The ball lands safely in the hands of the goalkeeper. 

16:32 (IST)5 AUG 2019

68' And, his first contribution is a meaningless foul. Christopher brings down Leon Augustine as the youngster tries to wriggle between two defenders. 

16:31 (IST)5 AUG 2019

68' Army Red with their second change. Christopher comes in for Randhan Meetei

16:29 (IST)5 AUG 2019

61' And, Bengaluru FC almost get their equalizer. Biswa finds Parag Shrivas on the left-wing and the youngster controls it and curls in a dangerous cross. The substitute Advait Shinde is spot on with his shot but Chandra Bahadur Tamang gets a hand to it and saves the day for Army Red. 

16:24 (IST)5 AUG 2019

58' Bengaluru FC makes their second change as they look to get the equalizer.

OFF- Edmund Lalrindika
ON- Advait Shinde

16:20 (IST)5 AUG 2019

51' Army Red looks dangerous here but Aditya Patra produces a fine save to deny Jain P from close range and keep the scoreline only 1-0. 

16:19 (IST)5 AUG 2019

49' It comes to nothing as the scoreline is still 1-0 in favor of Army Red. 

16:13 (IST)5 AUG 2019

49' Bengaluru FC have a free-kick from a dangerous position here. Let's see what they can get from there. 

16:11 (IST)5 AUG 2019

47' Army Red still looks dangerous. Bengaluru FC needs to up the tempo here. 

16:10 (IST)5 AUG 2019

46' Second half kicks off as Emmanuel comes in for Ajay Chhetri for Bengaluru FC. 

15:54 (IST)5 AUG 2019

HT| And, there goes the half-time whistle. It's Army Red 1-0 Bengaluru FC courtesy of a goal from Liton Shil in the dying embers of the first half. 

15:53 (IST)5 AUG 2019

45+4' GOAAAAAAALLLLLL! And, Army Red have finally been paid their due persistence. Liton Shil gives them the lead after connecting Sunil B's grounding pass. 

15:50 (IST)5 AUG 2019

45+1' WIDE! Mukesh Singh's cross finds N Suresh Meetei. But, his header is inches above. Bengaluru FC's vulnerability in the air is exploited here. 

15:49 (IST)5 AUG 2019

45' Army Red with their fifth corner. Let's see what they can get from there. On the other hand, we have four minutes added on. 

15:47 (IST)5 AUG 2019

43' WIDE! Well, I thought it was a goal but it hit the side netting. Herojit Singh beats his marker and from the one-on-one situation, his shot is narrowly wide. Army Red should have been one goal up by now. 

15:46 (IST)5 AUG 2019

42' SHOT! Randhan Meetei with a brilliant set-piece and Mukesh Kumar gets the second ball. His long-range effort is inches wide. Bengaluru FC are under a lot of pressure here. 

15:44 (IST)5 AUG 2019

41' Yellow card to Sairuat Kima now. The defender pulls down Liton Shil and well, he was lucky not to get a straight red as he was the last defender. 

15:43 (IST)5 AUG 2019

38' SHOT! It's all happening here. Suresh Meetei takes a shot from inside the six-yard box from a hand-shaking distance but he hits the post. How could he miss the target? A simple tap in would have made it 1-0 for Army Red. 

15:42 (IST)5 AUG 2019

38' Herojit Singh earns a corner now. He breaks the offside trap and wins a corner Parag Shrivas gets the last touch. 

15:40 (IST)5 AUG 2019

37' The action has been tamed down now. Aimless long balls from both the sides now instead of crisp passing which we saw before. 

15:37 (IST)5 AUG 2019

32' CLOSE! What a first touch from Herojit Singh. He unleashes a curler from just inside the box from his left foot but it is agonizingly above the crossbar. The team which scores the first goal will have a massive advantage. 

15:35 (IST)5 AUG 2019

31' Army Red makes their first substitution. Looks like a Bikash is out with an injury. 

OUT- Bikash Thapa
IN- Herojit Singh. 

15:33 (IST)5 AUG 2019

30' Bengaluru FC looking to exploit the wings now but fails to find the penetrating ball. 

15:31 (IST)5 AUG 2019

26' We have the first water-break here. Let's see what changes both the sides make. It is anyone's game from here now. Both the teams have performed brilliantly so far and we have seen everything except a goal. 

15:28 (IST)5 AUG 2019

24' SAVE! What a chance it was for Army Red. Mukesh Kumar with a brilliant grounding pass from the right flank but Aditya Patra gets his leg to prevent Liton Shil from getting a touch from the penalty spot. 

15:25 (IST)5 AUG 2019

22' CROSSBAR! Bengaluru FC is getting closer and closer. Biswa Dorjee unleashes a scorcher from 30 yards out but the ball hits the upright. 

15:23 (IST)5 AUG 2019

19' WIDE! Edmund Lalrindika gets past his marker with his sublime acceleration and first touch. His final shot deceives the goalkeeper but misses the goal as well. 

15:22 (IST)5 AUG 2019

18' A fine passing move from Bengaluru FC ends with Army Red defenders intercepting the ball in the final third. A long pass to find Liton Shil ends straight to the hands of Aditya Patra. 

15:19 (IST)5 AUG 2019

15' SHOT! A threatening move from the Army Red ends with Liton Shil heading the ball straight to the hands of Aditya Patra. A wonderful cross from Bikash Thapa nonetheless to find him. End to end stuff here. 

15:18 (IST)5 AUG 2019

14' CHANCE! Leon Augustine cuts in beautifully but Edmund and Ajay Chhetri both fail to connect the shot. It should have been 1-0 for Bengaluru FC now.
