The Blues are now on a nine-match unbeaten streak.

Bengaluru FC came back from a goal down to beat Jamshedpur FC 3-1 and extend their unbeaten run to nine games. The victory also took the Blues two points and a place above Jamshedpur, who drop to fourth place with 22 points after 13 games. Owen Coyle’s side though have played two games fewer than Bengaluru FC.

Daniel Chima scored within the opening minute to give Jamshedpur FC the lead, but Bengaluru FC roared back in the second half with two quick goals from Cleiton Silva and Sunil Chhetri. Silva then sealed the win with his second in stoppage time. Chettri, who scored the equaliser, is now level with Bartholomew Ogbeche as the joint-highest scorers in Indian Super League history.

Take a look at the player ratings from the game.

Bengaluru FC (by Ujyant Ramesh)

Gurpreet Singh Sandhu – 7.0

Got a strong hand early in the second half and another brilliant one in the 94th minute, to stop what would’ve been two vital goals in the context of the game.

Parag Shrivas – 8.0 

Despite not being able to do much in the first half for Daniel Chima’s goal, he made some extremely vital clearances in the second, denying the Nigerian as well as Greg Stewart their chances to have two on the night.

Pratik Chaudhari – 7.5

Got an important touch inside the box in the 49th minute, neutralizing a crucial attacking effort and blocking Greg Stewart’s pass to Daniel Chima. Had 82 touches — the highest amongst his defensive peers.

Alan Costa – 6.0

Returned to the starting XI in place of Muirang. Struggled to mark Daniel Chima for the first goal. Felt like the weakest link in defence tonight.

Roshan Singh – 7.0

Was on set-piece duty from the right as usual, putting in balls from angles towards his attack. Delivered a spectacular in-swinging corner for Cleiton Silva to put his side ahead in the second half.

Suresh Wangjam – 7.0

Despite a solid first half, he was replaced at half-time by Rohit Kumar. While on the pitch, he was pretty smart and clean with his distribution and first touches. He also had the highest passing accuracy among his midfield peers with 86%.

Bruno Ramires – 8.0 

Had one of his best nights for Bengaluru FC so far in the season. Yet again, executed his central defensive duties well. Made multiple vital interceptions and tackles throughout the game and also won the most number of duels (11) in the game. Also, got the assist for Bengaluru FC’s equalizer.

Danish Farooq – 7.0

Tried his luck from distance twice in the fifth and sixth minute with shots from right outside the box. Apart from that, he was his usual self, pushing forward into the box and being a vital link for his strikers upfront.

Udanta Singh – 6.5 

Thrust up on the flanks multiple times, delivering crosses to his attacking options upfront. However, he couldn’t really get his timing right and delivered some poor balls on the night. Overall, didn’t have a great game.

Sunil Chhetri – 8 

Scored a simple header off Parag’s throw-in and Bruno Ramires’ assist from inside the box. Apart from that, he marginally missed an opportunity before half-time in the 41st minute, after a spectacular in-swinging corner from Roshan.

Cleiton Silva – 8.5

Despite a relatively dull first half except for some set-piece chances, the Brazilian had a complete turnaround in the second. He scored twice – in the 62nd and 94th minute to seal all three points for his side tonight.

He was also bursting forward on the right multiple times to either cut it in or cross it towards Sunil Chhetri. However, it was his goals more than anything that were the difference. 


Rohit Kumar – 6.5

Replaced Suresh Wangjam at half-time. Headed the ball off Parag’s throw-in towards Bruno Ramires, who’s touch further led to Sunil Chhetri’s equalizer.

Jayesh Rane – 6.0

Came on in place of Danish Farooq in the 66th minute. In his 23 minutes played, he had 11 touches and a passing accuracy of 56% with his nine passes played.

Wungngayam Muirang – N/A

Replaced Alan Costa in the 90th minute after the latter picked up a knock.

Namgyal Bhutia – N/A

Came on right before the final whistle and therefore did nothing to be assessed.

Jamshedpur FC (By JN Balraj) 

Rehenesh TP – 5.5

Rehenesh looked clueless in the second half, the last two goals should’ve been avoided. The custodian produced just one save. He failed to make crucial punch outs, which cost the team in the end.

Dinliana Renthlei – 6.5

The Jamshedpur FC full-back made two clearances and six tackles against Bengaluru FC. Also, won eight of his 11 duels. He also delivered two crosses and played as many direct balls. 

Narender Gehlot – 6.0

The young centre-back stood up in some crucial moments and was solid with five clearances, two interceptions and three tackles to his name. But, his inconsistency again hurt the team, when he gifted the third goal to Cleiton in injury-time. 

Eli Sabia – 6.5

The captain made four clearances, three interceptions and blocked a shot. He won four of the five aerial duels and didn’t disappoint in the absence of Peter Hartley. 

Ricky Lallawmawma – 6.0

A dull outing from the experienced full-back. Ricky had 53 touches, won all five of his duels and made one successful tackle.

Jitendra Singh – 6.0 

Jitendra struggled to make any direct impact before being subbed five minutes prior to the end. He played two direct balls and made one clearance in the game.

Alex Lima – 6.5

Alex was the only positive in the midfield for Jamshedpur and played two key passes, blocked one shot and completed one dribble against Bengaluru FC. The Brazilian also made two tackles and was fouled thrice.

Seiminlen Doungel – 6.0

Len failed to break his streak of below-par outings since the game against ATK Mohun Bagan. He had 25 touches and played six passes, with one shot off target.

Greg Stewart – 6.5

Jamshedpur’s star man struggled to influence the game like before and so did the team. The Scot took two shots on target and played four direct balls. He missed one big chance and also was denied by Parag’s brilliant goal-line clearance.

Boris Singh – 6.5 

Boris played the ball to Chima which broke the deadlock in the first minute of the game. He played two key passes, delivered two crosses and attempted one shot. Defensively, he made two interceptions and tracked back continuously to support Ricky.

Daniel Chima – 8.0

Chima was again the best player for Jamshedpur and scored the opener in the first minute of the game. He took two shots on target, completed two dribbles and created a big chance for Greg Stewart. He used his physicality really well to hold up play and make spaces for Boris and Stewart.


Ishan Pandita – 6.5

Super-sub Ishan was brought in on the hour mark to win the points for his side. He pressed really well and would’ve scored from a cross by Dinliana, if there was not the communication gap with Alex.

Ritwik Das – 6.0

The midfielder got 10 minutes under his belt. He played four passes and was fouled once. Apart from that, he didn’t do anything noticeable.

Mobashir Rahman – N/A

The local lad was brought on in the last five minutes with the hope to produce something magical and he came agonizingly close to scoring in the final seconds.
