It was not the best we have seen of Bengaluru FC but it is a win away from home and certainly a morale booster for them. But yet again, it is another ISL match and another goal due to the goalkeeper’s mistake. The goal came when the NorthEast keeper Rehenesh made a sorry excuse for a clearance and it fell straight for Udanta Singh. He made up the space between him and goal easily and only had to pass it to Miku in the center and the latter put into the yawning net. NorthEast should have got a goal every time the Bengaluru goalkeeper Ralte punched the ball straight back into the box. The goalkeeping standards this season have fallen to new lows.
