EBFC took the lead thanks to a Silva penalty in the 39th of the game. The thing came against the run of play thanks to some good work from Suhair VP on the right hand. Suhair’s mazy run forced Naorem Mahesh Singh into a mistimed sliding attack, and the ball rolled onto his arms. The referee refocused to the spot. Silva took a stuttering run-up but calmly slotted his penalty home, putting East Bengal FC 1- 0 up against his former club for the alternate time this season.

Bengaluru FC looked hanging from set-pieces in the first half, with headed chances falling to Sunil Chhetri, Parag Shrivas, and Pablo Perez. Roy Krishna was also troubled in open play but couldn’t find the finishing touch, as the first half ended with East Bengal FC taking a 1- 0 lead.

But Bengaluru FC’s continuity was awarded in the 55th of the match. formerly again, Roy Krishna was in the thick of effects. He went on a run on the right hand before cutting it back to Javi Herandez, who smashed the ball into the net.

Alex Lima and Noarem Mahesh Singh of EB looked like they could open effects up whenever they got on the ball in the first half but weren’t suitable to affect the game as frequently in the alternate. But both sides had chances to take the lead. Chhetri was through on thing in the 73rd but couldn’t sort his bases out, whereas EB’s Silva got his bases sorted in the 83rd but had his shot go wide.

Both sides pushed for a winner. Bengaluru FC covers Siva Narayan came ever so close in the 90th nanosecond, but Suvan Sen was there to deny him. He was left to lament it as Silva scored an outstanding free-kick three twinkles into cessation time to give East Bengal FC all three points and move above them into 8th place.

EBFC will kick off the new year with a visit to the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar against Odisha FC on January 7. Bengaluru FC has now dropped down to 9th place and will visit the Indira Gandhi National Stadium in Guwahati to play NorthEast FC on January 6.
