Bengaluru FC created history after becoming the first Indian football club to reach the final of AFC Cup after they beat defending champions Johor Darul Ta’zim of Malaysia. After drawing the first leg of the semi-finals 1-1, Bengaluru FC turned on the heat in the second leg at home and beat JDT 3-1 in the match and 4-2 on aggregate to advance to the final. Sunil Chhetri was once again the star for them as he scored two goals to put BFC in the lead before a header from Juanan sealed the game. Chhetri’s second goal was a 30-yard strike. BFC face Iraq’s Air Force Club in the final on November 5.
