ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Odisha FC vs Bengaluru FC: Catch all the live updates from the Indian Super League 2019-20 match between Odisha FC and Bengaluru FC through News18 Sports' live blog. Defending champions Bengaluru FC beat hosts Odisha FC 1-0 at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex Stadium in Pune on Wednesday. Here is the story of the match: Bengaluru FC took a 1-0 lead over Odisha FC after 45 minutes of play, courtesy Juanan, who scored a bizarre goal - one like a centre forward. Udanta had the golden chance to add to the tally but could not do the same before half time. Odisha FC played a good game for the first half an hour but then made a couple of individual errors to lose the initiative and Bengaluru took full advantage of the same. Odisha FC came out with intent in the second half but met the wall of resistance in Gurpreet Singh Sandhu who made as many as six clear cut saves to keep BFC in the lead. In one move, Gurpreet denied Diagne and Nandha at the goalmouth while made a couple of saves more against Tebar to end as the Hero of the Match. Bengaluru also had a couple of chances to increase their lead with Dimas even hitting the post but in the end, they came out with a victory for the first time in the last 10 away games.

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. Odisha FC remain on the sixth spot in the points table with six points from seven matches. Bengaluru FC, on the other hand, go top of the table with 13 points from seven matches. LIVE STREAMING

Udanta had the golden chance to add to the tally but could not do the same and thus the game has only a single goal to show so far. Odisha FC played a good game for the first half an hour but then made a couple of individual errors to lose the initiative and Bengaluru took full advantage of the same.

44' - What was Udanta thinking there? A mistake in passing from Delgado and Chhetri latches on it and gets the ball and moves up, he turns around with two defenders at him and passes to Udanta on his right. Despite clear sight at goal, Udanta does not go for goal and instead tries to pass back to Chhetri and the chance is gone. Cuadrat cannot believe it!

Odisha will bank on Aridane Santana, who has scored four goals so far, to help breach the Bengaluru backline. But much will depend on playmaker Xisco Hernandez who has the ability to carve open any defence. He has also shown his eye for goals, racking three goals up so far. The Spaniard will be pumped up for the battle against his former team. Much will also depend on the midfield battle as two technically-gifted sets of players go up against each other. The likes of Marcos Tebar, Vinit Rai and Xisco Hernandez love to get on the ball and dictate play. But so do Bengaluru's midfields, Erik Paartalu, Dimas Delgado and Raphael Augusto.



Lack of goals have been a worry for the Blues despite Sunil Chhetri's recent scoring run. The injured Michael Onwu and Ashique Kuruniyan are yet to open their accounts for the season while Udanta Singh has just one goal to his name so far. Odisha's backline has not exactly been rock-solid, conceding eight goals in six games. With Carlos Delgado doubtful after an injury he picked up against Chennaiyin FC, Bengaluru will want their forwards to make an impact.
