ArticlesThe RewindTHE REWIND : KBFC vs BFC

January 31, 2022by KBFC Media Desk

Blasters went down one-nil to Bengaluru FC in the Southern derby clash on Sunday. Naorem Roshan Singh’s worldie free-kick helped the Blues to edge past KBFC.

After coming back from an 18 days gap, the gaffer once again fielded the team in 4-4-2 formation. The game started off well for Bengaluru FC. They kept raiding the Blasters box often but we stood tall to defend them. The men in yellow created some chances at the other end, but we lacked accuracy. Roshan Singh, who was named as the Hero of the Match often created issues for Khabra and his co-defenders with his runs down the left flank.

Alvaro Vazquez tried to surpass Gurpreet with his stunning free-kick right at the half-an-hour mark, but the keeper made the save. Bengaluru also tried to break the deadlock through set-pieces and they became inch-close to scoring, but Nishu’s goal-line save made sure that things were even at the break.

In the opening minutes of the second-half it was again the blues who looked bright in attacking. They scored at the 56th minute courtesy Roshan Singh’s belter free-kick. After conceding the goal, Blasters went all out to equalize. Late in the second half, Ivan’s team created more chances and very nearly scored the equalizer.

Khabra, the skipper for the night, almost scored against his former side with a thunderous volley from Luna’s free-kick but Gurpreet punched it out. Luna, who has been a live wire in the midfield as always, got a very good chance to score his third goal in ISL, but once again Gurpreet stood as an obstacle in front of goal. After 5 minutes of additional time, the game came to an end in favour of Blues.

This defeat has ended our 10 match long unbeaten run. But given the circumstances, the way we fought hard in this game defines us. Now it is time to regroup and make sure that we earn points from the next game. The Blasters will go again this Friday, 4th February, 2022 against Northeast United FC.
