Bengaluru have moved up from ninth to seventh in the table with their third win of the season. German coach Marco Pezzoulli’s Blues have 13 points from 11 matches. At the same time, Mumbai could not go to the top again due to the fourth defeat and remained in second place. They have 17 points from 11 matches from five wins and two draws. Bengaluru’s right back Roshan Nourem was awarded the Hero of the Match award for his outstanding all-round play on the right flank. Danish Farooq scored one and Prince Ibarra scored two goals for Bengaluru.

Bengaluru dominated from the beginning

Bengaluru FC completely dominated the match. Coach Pezzouoli’s strategy of playing high-pressing football continued successfully throughout the match, which did not allow the Mumbai players to play their short passing game. In the second half too, Mumbai City’s defense was under complete pressure in front of this effective strategy of Bengaluru, as it was repeatedly attacked. Congolese forward Ibara scored two goals and right back Roshan Naurem made his mark with a brilliant play on the right flank. Although Mumbai struggled to create some opportunities in the second half, but sometimes luck and sometimes Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Sandhu kept coming between them and the goalpost. So no goal was scored in the second half.

Defense worked poorly

In the first half, Bengaluru started playing excellent football, then Mumbai City’s defense started to disintegrate completely under pressure. Thus, Bengaluru got several scoring opportunities, with two goals by Prince Ibara and one by Danish Farooq to put the former champions 3-0 ahead. On the remaining occasions, Mumbai’s defense and goalkeeper Phurba Lachenpa were forced to defend.

Danish opened account

Danish Farooq scored the first goal of the match in the 8th minute to give Bengaluru FC a 1-0 lead. Prince Ibarra bowled the ball to Clayton Silva on the edge of the box, but defender Mortada Fall’s tackle offended the Bengaluru forward’s balance, but he passed the ball to Danish before slipping. Danish hit a left footer from just outside the box and Mumbai goalkeeper Lachenpa stayed far away from the ball despite diving to his left.

Bengaluru took the lead 2-0 in the 23rd minute when Prince Ibarra scored from a brilliant header. A fine cross from Roshan Naurem from the right flank was hit from a very close by the Congolese forward while goalkeeper Lachenpa found no opportunity to stop the ball. Prince Ibarra scored his second and third goal for Bengaluru in the 45+4th minute just before half-time and during the four-minute stoppage time. This time too Roshan Naurem assisted and hit a perfect corner kick from the right flank, on which Ibara pierced the goalpost from the header. In this way the score became 3-0 in favor of Bangalore.
