ISL 2020-21 Highlights: Bengaluru FC were held to a 0-0 draw by a spirited Hyderabad FC in the ninth match of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Fatorda Stadium in Goa on Saturday.

After being held 2-2 by FC Goa in their season opener, Bengaluru hoped to register their first win of the season against Manuel Márquez Roca’s side but Hyderabad came up with a dogged performance. Hyderabad, who started with an impressive 1-0 win over Odisha FC, tormented the Blues backline at regular intervals but weren’t clinical enough in the end.

ISL 2020-21 Highlights:

21:25 (IST)28 Nov 2020
FT: Bengaluru FC 0-0 Hyderabad FC

After three minutes of injury time, the referee blows the whistle. Hyderabad gave Bengaluru a run for their money with their lively approach up ahead with the ball but their misfiring boots couldn't help them get the three points. Second ISL clean sheet for them.

21:19 (IST)28 Nov 2020
87' Brown proves to be a menace

A fine cross from Cleiton sees Subrata Pal fumble it with Brown in close vicinity but the Hyderabad defenders close him down quickly and solve the issue. Minutes later, Odei comes to the rescue as he unnerves Brown and saves his team the blushes.

21:15 (IST)28 Nov 2020
84' Bengaluru, Hyderabad await their moment

Apart from two slashed attempts from Narzary ten minutes back and another scuffed shot by Chhetri, the match hasn't had a lot of shots. It has been a lot of overhit passes and failed crosses so far. Khabra goes into the book though. Into the final five now. 

21:05 (IST)28 Nov 2020
72' Augustine comes on for the Blues

Carles Cuadrat with another change as the young Suresh Singh Wangjam is removed out of play. Leon Augustine comes on.

67' Bengaluru try to sneak past

Suresh comes with a fantastic run from the right flank but his attempted low cross has been blocked out of play by a diving Victor. The resulting corner by Delgado doesn't result anything. The match is opening up a little bit though now.

20:51 (IST)28 Nov 2020
60' Bengaluru make a double change

Carles Cuadrat makes two substitutions as Deshorn Brown and Rahul Bheke replace Fran Gonzalez and Udanta Singh respectively.

20:42 (IST)28 Nov 2020
50' Delgado down after a foul

Delgado is down on the ground after coming together with Santana. Before the incident, Hyderabad were passing the ball comfortably but playing it rather safely. Roca's men have to be brave enough to threaten the defensively astute Bengaluru.

20:38 (IST)28 Nov 2020
Second half underway

The match restarts as Santana sets the ball rolling. Bengaluru have made a change though: Delgado's on for Opseth.

20:21 (IST)28 Nov 2020
HT: Bengaluru FC 0-0 Hyderabad FC

After three minutes of stoppage time, the referee brings the half to an end. Hyderabad have been lively but they have been seriously depleted with two injuries to Joel Chianese and Lluis Sastre. Hitesh Sharma replaced the latter. All to play for in the second half!

20:16 (IST)28 Nov 2020
43' Penalty shout, nothing given

Paartalu goes down inside the box clutching his ankle but the replays show that there wasn't much contact by a Hyderabad player in the box. Bengaluru have upped the ante towards the end of the half to sneak in a lead and unnerve the opposition.

20:09 (IST)28 Nov 2020
35' Hyderabad make an early change

Bengaluru have been forced to kick the ball out as Joel Chianese has rolled his ankle. Mohammad Yasir comes in place of him.

19:58 (IST)28 Nov 2020
25' Hyderabad put pressure on

Hyderabad come close to scoring but Onaindia's long pass to Chianese is judged to be offside. Although the replays suggested that his run was indeed on. Minutes later, Paartalu is shown the yellow card for a foul on Narzary down the left flank.

19:43 (IST)28 Nov 2020
10' Cleiton fails to keep his calm

Just after Khabra's foul on Santana, Hyderabad concede one foul of their own. Chianese, after stealing the ball from Suresh, goes on a powerful run through the left flank. However, he brings down Cleiton Silva and a free-kick is awarded to the Blues.

19:37 (IST)28 Nov 2020
4' Fouls galore in opening minutes

Chhetri finds Ashique with an intricate pass but the left wing-back lost the ball and fouled Ashish. Hyderabad make another scrappy foul in the opposite half too minutes later. Both teams are yet to settle in, but the Men in Yellow have most of the ball.
