Post-match comments!!

Owen Coyle (Jamshedpur FC head coach on the match): "It was a tough game. We have had our troubles with our injuries. Bengaluru are a far better side than their position suggests. they are good on the break. We should have scored from a couple of set-pieces ourselves. However, this keeps us on an upward trajectory and we need to go on."

Marco Pezzaiuoli (Bengaluru FC head coach) on the team's performance: "I think we need to analyse the details. We haven't won enough points. We want to play good football, have a good transition. There is no one way of playing football. Football is multi-functional and our players have the capability to adapt."

Gupreet Singh Sandhu (Bengaluru FC goalkeeper): "It (the clean sheet) is a good foundation to start on. The last two games have given a lot of positives and hopefully, we can continue from this. We have very good players who are good with the ball, we want to try and play out from the back and we know we can do it. Even if things don't work out for you sometimes you got to have the courage to try."

Greg Stewart (Hero of the match): "Little bit frustrated with the result. Credit to the Bengaluru goalkeeper.  Obviously disappointed that we didn't win but a draw is a fair result. Both defences did really well and did not give any chances away. Now we have to recover and get ready for the next match against Kerala (Blasters)."

Sunil Chhetri came closest to scoring after hitting his header hit the crossbar in the 84th-minute but it was one of those matches when the ball just wouldn't end up inside the goal.

Both teams had their fair share of chances but ultimately share spoils in a goalless draw.

Match resumes!!

Drinks break!!

75' Save- Stewart slipped a wonderful through-ball. He reaches the ball a bit late, which allows Gurpreet to come out and make a save.

73' BFC Sub- Sunil Chhetri replaces Cleiton Silva. A bizarre decision by Pezzaiuoli as Silva has been BFC's best player today.  Silva does not look happy.

57' Jitendra brings down Udanta just outside the box right when the BFC forward was going to pull the trigger.

54' Chance- Cleiton delivers a great ball from a BFC freekick, which finds Ibara. Ibara's header however, lacking the quality of the preceding cross by Silva. Goalkick to BFC.

38' It seems like Thatal won't be able to continue for the night. An unfortunate sight to see.

37' Komal Thatal of JFC down right now- he is receiving medical attention.

35' We are seeing some scrappy football right now by both teams. None of them seem to be doing anything substantial with the ball right now.

32' TP Rehenesh with some risky bit of play as he takes too much time to pick the ball up as Udanta comes rushing at him with his blistering pace.

Match resumes!!

Drinks break!!

11' Bruno with an off the ball body check on Stewart inside the BFC box. He is lucky that the referee did spot that.

MATCH PREVIEW: ISL 2021-22: Winless Bengaluru wary of Jamshedpur threat

Bengaluru FC (BFC) faces a tough challenge against a strong Jamshedpur FC in an Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) outing at Bambolim on Monday.

BFC, winless in six games, takes on Jamshedpur FC, which is fresh from a 4-0 victory over Odisha FC in its previous outing. BFC, however, can take some positives from a 3-3 draw earned against ATK Mohun Bagan a few days ago.

Suresh Wangjam returns to the BFC squad after the midfielder served his one-match ban for picking up a red card against FC Goa. Naorem Singh will miss out due to suspension (four yellows).

The Jamshedpur FC frontline poses a serious threat. Scotland’s Greg Stewart is in form, having scored the club’s first-ever hat-trick in the victory over Odisha FC.

“They have four very good attacking players, and Greg Stewart is one of them. We’ve played two pre-season friendlies against them, and have an idea of the kind of threat they possess,” BFC head coach Marco Pezzaiuoli said.
