QUESS EAST BENGAL SNATCH VICTORY AWAY FROM BENGALURU FC DESPITE CONCEDING A GOAL AT FIRST
A young, extremely fast Bengaluru FC made things difficult for Quess East Bengal earlier today, so much so that when Ajay Chhetri scored for BFC at the 17th minute, a section of the crowd at Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan went silent, awestruck at the goal.
Bengaluru FC led the attack in the first half, with occasional cameos from QEB. The scenario was to change, when at the 46th minute, Bidyashagar Singh was brought onto the field as a substitute for Boithang Haokip. The star of Quess East Bengal so far at the 129th Durand Cup, Bidyashagar Singh scored the equaliser in the 59th minute with an assist from Brandon Vanlalremdika, following up with another one in the 74th minute and thus saved the day for his team. His game-changing heroics were good enough for him to be adjudged the Man of the Match.
Quess East Bengal thus comfortably qualify for the semi-final, scheduled on August 21. Bengaluru FC, on the other hand, will face Jamshedpur FC on August 17, both matches scheduled at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan.
