ISL | BFC edges Chennaiyin
Chennaiyin pays the price for the myriad missed opportunities
Bengaluru FC notched up a much-needed win, beating Chennaiyin FC 4-2 in an error-strewn but entertaining encounter at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco on Thursday.
Only BFC’s second victory of the season, it was sealed in the space of four second-half minutes.
At 2-2 and 20 minutes to go, substitute Udanta Singh scored after a neat dummy from Brazilian Cleiton Silva, in which two other substitutes — Sunil Chhetri and Danish Farooq — also had roles.
