Hello and welcome to Sportstar's LIVE updates of the Indian Super League (ISL) match between Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC.

 

FULL TIME It ends Bengaluru FC 2 - 2 Jamshedpur FC. Four good goals and points are shared at the Shree Kanteerava stadium.

90' + 4' GOOOOOOOAL! Jamshedpur equalise, again! Sergio Cidoncha scores with what might be the last kick of the match, slotting home Arques' cross.

90' + 4' Final change for Bengaluru. Miku is replaced by Haokip.

90' + 3' Miku gets the ball on the left wing, gets the defenders to surround him and then puts in an exquisite pass to Chhetri. He's free int he box but his shot bounces off the post and away from goal. Brilliant play from Miku to set Chhetri up.

90' Four minutes of time added.

90' Change for Bengaluru - Boithang replaces Udanta.

89' A late tackle on Miku earns Mobashir Rahman a yellow card.

88' GOAAAAAAAAAAAL! SUNIL CHHETRI GIVES BENGALURU THE LEAD AGAIN! He jumps high and head a cross. It deflects off a Jamshedpur defender but he will not mind that. That's his first goal of this ISL season and one that gives Bengaluru the lead again.

86' Gaurav takes on Serran again, beats him but his shot finds the top row of the stadium.

81' GOAAAAAAAAAAAL! JAMSHEDPUR EQUALISE! With ten minutes left on the clock, 16-year-old Gaurav Mukhi, on his ISL debut, beats the offside trap, holds off Serran and puts his shot Gurpreet Singh.

78' Miku tried to bulldoze his way into the Jamshedpur box but Tiri holds him off, brings the ball out of the defence and tries a diagonal pass to Calvo.

76' A defensive mix-up from Jamshedpur sees Miku take the advantage but Subhasish is alert to save his shot. He tried it squeeze it in at the near post but the keeper matched his effort.

76' Bengaluru makes its first change of the game. Dimas Delgado comes on for Xisco.

71' Double change for Jamshedpur. Tim Cahill and Jerry are replaced by Calco and Gourav Mukhi. Gourav becomes the youngest player to ever play in the ISL!

71' The freekick is taken long this time and Paartalu heads it just over the Jamshedpur goal.

70' Another yellow card, this time for Jerry. Cheeky by him, trying to stop a quick freekick with his hand.

68' Memo picks up a yellow card for a foul on Sunil Chhetri. The crowd didn't like that challenge one bit!

62' Miku turns Tiri and flicks the ball to Xisco, whose shot is saved. The Xisco, Chhetri and Miku triangle is working well for The Blues.

60' Thirty minutes left in the game and Bengaluru in the driving seat right now. Jamshedpur, though, has shown better attacking instincts this half and has a bit of urgency in its play.

58' Another long rang strike, this time from Mobashir but it goes wide of the goal.

57' Jerry is hauled to the ground inside the Bengaluru box but the referee waves play on. Jamshedpur wants a penalty but the referee disagrees. The replay shows that Jerry was fouled just outside the box. Should've been a freekick and this could be a big talking point if Jamshedpur doesn't get anything from this game.

 

55' Jamshedpur makes the first change of the game. Mobashir comes on for Gaikwad.

53' Paartalu wins a header and passes to Miko, who runs past the Jamshedpur defence but his pass is deflected just out Chhetri's reach. Yumnam Raju with a crucial touch to put the ball beyond Chhetri.

51' A cross from the right wing isn't cleared by the Jamshedpur defence and it falls to Chhetri, whose left foot shot goes wide of the goal.

50' Poor ball from Raju Gaikwad and Bengaluru wins the ball. Miku gets the ball, turns and his attempted across the face of the goal is collected by Subhashish Roy.

48' Udanta Singh picks up where he left off in the first half. Troubles the Jamshedpur defence and wins a corner, which comes to nothing.

46' Bengaluru FC gets the second half underway.

HALF TIME Bengaluru FC 1 - 0 Jamshedpur FC. 20-year-old Nishu Kumar with the goal.

45' + 2' Erik Paartalu picks up the second yellow card of the game

45' Two minutes of time added.

45' GOAAAAAAL! BENGALURU TAKES THE LEAD! Another freekick for Bengaluru. Jamshedpur manages to clear the initial ball but it falls to Nishu Kumar who smashes it home. Sensational half-volley from outside the box. Subhasish Roy could do nothing about that shot.

43' Udanta Singh wins a freekick right under the linesman's nose. His pace has been a problem for Jamshedpur. Chhetri takes the set piece and flats in a ball to Xisco, who volleys wide of the goal. That was well taken but did not trouble Subhasish Roy.

40' Yumnam Raju brings down Chhetri and picks up the first yellow card of the night. Bengaluru has a freekick but comes to nothing. The players try some rehearsed training ground routine but it doesn't rouble Jamshedpur.

35' Michael Soosairaj gets away from Udanta Singh, nutmegs Harmanjot Khabra but loses the ball inside the Bengaluru box.

34' Tiri is winning almost every long ball from Bengaluru. If The Blues want to score, looks like they will have to look for a different route. The Spaniard is not the mood to let anything past him today.

33' A Bengaluru throw in falls to Nishu Kumar, whose smashes a volley well wide of the Jamshedpur goal.

31' Chhetri flicks the ball past a defender on the left flank but gets hauled to the ground in the process. He is expecting a freekick but the referee disagrees.

27' Rahul Bheke finds space on the right wing but he cannot make up his mind between crossing and shooting. His final cross/shot is claimed with ease by Subhasish.

23' Sergio Cidoncha is brought to the ground by Harmanjot Khabra and the referee gives Jamshedpur a freekick in a good position. Mario Arques takes it and goes for goal, but the ball sails well over Gurpreet Singh Sandhu's goal.

21' Jerry Mawhmingthanga runs onto a through ball to get behind the Bengaluru defence but, like Udanta a few minutes ago, his final ball lets him down. Tim Cahill was the one who set Jerry free there, the 38-year-old Australian is quickly making his mark with Jamshedpur.

18' Chhetri tries to control a high ball and turn inside the box but the referee blows his whistle for a handball.

16' Miku tries to get past Tiri with some good footwork but the Jamshedpur captain manages to get his foot in and stop the Venezuelan's run.

15' Good strike from Xisco and Subhasish Roy is equal to it. The ball was swerving but the keeper did well to gather it.

14' Miku twists and turns his marker, he can't get free but manages to win a corner. But the corner comes to nothing and it comfortably gathered by Subhasish Roy.

12' Udanta Singh runs away on the right win, gets into the box but his final pass is poor. Picks the wrong options and it goes out for a throw in. That was the first proper attack of the game, and one that should've given BFC the lead. Bikash Jairu, who was closest to Udanta, just couldn't keep up with the Manipur lad's pace.

11' Sunil Chhetri with an opportunistic strike from well outside the Jamshedpur box, which gets blocked before entering it.

10' Ten minutes gone and it's all square right now, with both teams doing well to not give any clear shot on goal to the other.

8' A physical tussle between Tim Cahill and Albert Serran. The linesman, who was only a few feet away, doesn't wave his flag but the referee gives Bengaluru a foul. And Cahill is understandably unhappy with that decision.

4'  Jamshedpur is pressing Bengaluru well in the midfield, not allowing it to build up play. And its defence is doing well to cut out all the long balls too.

2' Tim Cahill is involved right away, jumping high for a ball and giving away a free kick.

1' We have kickoff at the Sree Kanteerava stadium! Bengaluru is playing in its blue kit and Jamshedpur in red.

• Fireworks, as usual, as both the teams walk out of the tunnel and onto the pitch. BFC is the only team this season, so far, to win a home game. Will it get a second win at home before the international break?

• If Tim Cahill scores today, it'll be his 200th career goal!

• Lot to play for today. Whoever wins at the Sree Kanteerava stadium will go top of the table.
