FULL TIME! NorthEast United FC have managed to hold the defending champions Bengaluru FC to a 0-0 draw at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in what was the season opener for both teams. The NorthEast defence has done a solid job today even though Udanta Singh's wasteful performance today cost the home team. Asamoah Gyan hit the bar in the second half while Subhasish pulled off a stunning save from Nishu Kumar's brilliant strike as this match up ended in a goalless draw.

Once again, Khalid Jamil, on the NEUFC bench as their assistant manager, has got the better of Bengaluru. From the pages of Aizawl FC and I-League, the dodgyness has arrived in the ISL.

Oct 21, 2019 8:49 pm (IST)

53' - OFF THE BAR! What a chance that for NorthEast United FC but Bengaluru FC somehow survive. A quick counter attack from NorthEast saw Chaves make a brilliant to Asamoah Gyan, who stayed onside and side-stepped to unleash the shot that hit the bar. Bengaluru survive!

With a clutch of new signings and retention of key players, particularly domestic, Bengaluru look set to dominate again this season. They roped in India midfielder Ashique Kuruniyan this season to make an all-Indian attacking line-up of him, Sunil Chhetri and Udanta Singh. The Blues have added striker Manuel Onwu of Spain, who will have the unenviable task of replacing the prolific Miku, who has left the side.



Despite the departure of some key players of the previous season, particularly Bartholomew Ogbeche, NorthEast United have made some big signing, including high profile Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan. NorthEast United's new head coach Robert Jarni is confident of a winning start despite the crowd being against them. Jarni felt his side will have a slight advantage since most of Bengaluru's key Indian players were away with the national team for a while and might not have had tuned into their side's preparations.
