Bengaluru FC’s hopes of securing playoffs qualification suffered another blow as they were held to a 1-1 draw by a resilient SC East Bengal in the Indian Super League here on Tuesday.
The result also extended SCEB’s winless run to nine matches. Semboi Haokip (28th) opened the scoring with a diving header until Sourav Das (OG 55th) handed the equalizer to the opposition with their own goal at the Athletic Stadium.
The equalizer finally came after a period of sustained pressure by the Blues in the second half. A cross from the right flank by Roshan was met by Sourav Das whose miscued header went past his own goalkeeper on the near post.
