ISL: Bengaluru FC beat Jamshedpur FC 3-0

Bengaluru FC picked up an important 3-0 victory over Jamshedpur FC at the JRD Tata Sports Stadium on Wednesday.
With another three points, they now leapfrog Chennaiyin FC in the standings and are only one point behind sixth-placed FC Goa.
The Blues secured an early lead through Rohit Kumar. Prabir Das’ whipped cross found the midfielder, who was unmarked when he tapped the ball into the net. Despite going a goal down, the Red Miners exerted pressure on the Bengaluru FC backline, but the away side’s defense led by Sandesh Jhingan kept their opponents at bay.
Roy Krishna soon doubled the Blues’ lead courtesy of a stunning strike from outside the box. The half ended with Bengaluru FC leading by two goals to nil, although Jamshedpur FC had few decent opportunities to score.
The Men of Steel upped the ante in the second half, but it was the Blues who scored yet again. Sivashakthi Narayanan’s left-footed shot found the goal, giving his team a three-goal advantage. The game ended with Bengaluru FC taking all the honors in what was another clinical display by Simon Grayson’s men.
