Bengaluru dominated this game throughout. They had to work for the goals. But, substitutes Noralesand Vineeth saw them over the line. Chennai had very little to offer in attack and if it wasn't for Kanjit's inspired keeping in the first half that could have lots by many more goals. They need a lot of work on the training ground. Goodnight from Bengaluru.
