ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Bengaluru FC vs Chennaiyin FC: Catch all the live updates from the Indian Super League 2019-20 match between Bengaluru FC and Chennaiyin FC through News18 Sports' live blog. Defending champions Bengaluru FC thrash Chennaiyin FC 3-0 at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday to register their first win of the season. Here is the story of the match: Bengaluru FC took off at a frantic pace, desperate for a win. With Eric Paartalu back in the side, they look more balanced and threatening in terms of set play. Chances after chances came for Paartalu, Chhetri and Dimas and all the pressure paid off in the 14th minute, when the Big Paartalu headed in a Dimas corner to put Bengaluru 1-0 ahead. Sunil Chhetri increases Bengaluru FC's lead in the 25th minute with a stunning strike. Collecting an Augusto long ball by getting around Tondonba, Chhetri paces up and unleashes the strike before Sabia can close down and the Kanteerava is going bonkers. Bengaluru FC have got going and how. Chennaiyin FC managed to lower the pace of the game a bit and the teams went into the break with the scoreline reading 2-0 in favour of Bengaluru. The pace of the second half was relatively much slower and both teams were unable to test each other too much. Both Chennaiyin FC and Bengaluru FC have been denied penalties. Semboi Haokip gets on the scoresheet in the 84th minute as he outmuscles Eli Sabia to roll the ball into the back of the net. Sunil Chhetri had a chance to get a brace when Dimas put in a perfect pass for him but Chhetri fluffed the chance in front of an open goal. Bengaluru FC, eventually would be very happy with the three points and the bragging rights against their Southern rivals.

Season six of the Indian Super League is expected to bring a lot of excitement as it is now the top division league of the country and the league-stage table toppers will get a spot in the AFC Champions League playoffs. With the win, Bengaluru FC are now fifth in the league table with six points from four games. They will be relieved that after scoring one goal in three games, they have scored three in their fourth. Chennaiyin FC, on the other hand, remain rock bottom after one point from four games. LIVE STREAMING

87' - Chhetri scuffs that one! Dimas gets to the end of that diagonal ball from Ashique and plays a perfect pass into the middle. Chhetri gets to the end of it and he has an open goal in front of him but he blasts it away. Chhetri is not happy as he hits the post with his boot in frustration.

90' - Semboi with another chance! He forces a save from Vishal Kaith.

Bengaluru FC 3-0 Chennaiyin FC!

84' - GOAL! All Semboi does there was outmuscle Eli Sabia. He simply kept on running there and reaped the benefits of that. That is surely Game.Set.Match for Bengaluru FC.

83' - OFF THE POST! Chennaiyin FC take a corner and Lucian Goian rolls it to the near post where Dhanpal Ganesh hits the post. Goian's effort is way over.

71' - SUBSTITUTION FOR BENGALURU FC! Nishu Kumar is replaced by Semboi Haokip.

Chennaiyin FC are trying way too hard to find a way through the Benglauru defence at the moment. They are unable string good passes together in the box and have not been able to really threaten Gurpreet.

73' - Chennaiyin FC have been denied a penalty! Another wrong refereeing decision.

64' - Udanta is brought down on the right flank and Dimas takes the free kick but it is easily cleared by Chennaiyin and they look for a counter-attack but the lack of a good final ball costs them.

53' - SUBSTITUTION FOR CHENNAIYIN FC! Lallianzuala Chhangte is brought on in place of Rahim. That would inject some pace into the Chennaiyin attack. It was a strange decision from Gregory to not start him in the first place.

Nov 10, 2019 8:42 pm (IST)

50' - Edwin Vanspaul goes for a long-ranger from the intercepted ball and taking a toe touch from Paartalu, the ball just whizzes over the bar.

HALF TIME! Eric Paartalu made his first start for Bengaluru FC and scored in the 14th minute to put Bengaluru FC ahead. Just 11 minutes later, Sunil Chhetri unleashed a stunner to increase Bengaluru's lead to put Chennaiyin in shock. For the entirety of the first half, Bengaluru bullied Chennaiyin and did not let the visitors have any say. However, Chennaiyin were at least able to keep Bengaluru in check in the second half of the first 45 minutes and would look to get some grip after the break.

Nov 10, 2019 8:09 pm (IST)

37' - Chennayin FC are not in the game at the moment! There have been seven shots from Bengaluru FC compared to just one from Chennayin. John Gregory will not be happy with this. He said ahead of the match that this one is "more than just a football game".

26' - Another big chance for Bengaluru FC but it goes begging! Raphael Augusto is one-on-one with Vishal Kaith but he just could not get his shot through.

This is the first goal of the season for India's top goalscorer in the history of the game and what a strike to break the deadlock!

4' - Rahul Bheke with a long throw into the box and Paartalu gets his head to it and it was on target but Vishal Kaith collected the ball with ease. However, Bheke's feet was inside the line when he made the throw and that should have been a foul.

ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Bengaluru FC vs Chennaiyin FC: Bengaluru Beat Chennai for 1st Win of the Season
Indian Super League 2019-20: Bengaluru FC beat Chennaiyin FC 3-0 to register their first win of the season.

Bengaluru FC were held to a goalless draw by NorthEast United in their opening game at home, but unfortunate against FC Goa where only an unfortunate tackle in injury time helped Goa equalise through a penalty. Against Jamshedpur FC, though, heroics from Subrata Paul denied Bengaluru a goal. The lack of goals have not helped them even as their defence has been solid.

Chennaiyin FC's profligate finishing and poor decision-making up front has cost them so far as they are yet to find a goal. Chennaiyin do have players like Anirudh Thapa and Rafael Crivellaro who can influence proceedings from the midfield. However, it remains to be seen if they can translate that ability on the field against another strong team who are desperate for a win themselves.
