Bengaluru keep record intact with 2-0 win over Abahani
Mumbai: 19-year-old Nishu Kumar’s first goal for the club and a strike from Marjan Jugovic eight minutes from time made it three wins in as many games as Bengaluru FC beat Bangladesh club Abahani Limited Dhaka 2-0 to stay on top with nine points in AFC Cup Group E at the Kanteerava Stadium, Bengaluru, on Tuesday.
The Blues did have a scare in the 25th minute when Mohammad Ziban found himself on goal but Ralte’s confident charge saw the goalkeeper thwart any potential danger away.
Bengaluru’s second goal was the result of another swift move with Sunil Chhetri picking out Eugeneson Lyngdoh who floated a cross in for Jugovic as they took a 2-0 lead that they went on to consolidate.
