Bengaluru FC moved back into sixth place after earning their first ever victory over ATK Mohun Bagan in the Hero Indian Super League in Kolkata on Sunday. The 2-1 win was built on Javi Hernandez’s opener in the 77th minute before Roy Krishna added a second in stoppage time. It was the Blues’ fifth victory on the trot.
Juan Ferrando was forced to make two changes as the suspended duo of Ashique Kuruniyan and Hugo Boumous was replaced by Liston Colaco and Federico Gallego, while Simon Grayson fielded an unchanged XI.
The hosts dominated possession in the first half and entered the final third on several occasions, but the Bengaluru FC backline was on hand to thwart their attempts.
