Bengaluru FC makes Durand Cup final on own goal from Hyderabad

Bengaluru FC (BFC) defeated Hyderabad FC (HFC) with an own goal at the half-hour mark by Spanish defender Odei Onaindia Zabala.

HFC had the majority of chances and possession, and their star striker Batholomew Ogbeche was wasteful for a change, but The Blues had enough to win the battle of ISL heavyweights. Quite against the run of play, the goal came in what was probably BFC’s first real attack. Prabir Das delivered a perfect cross across the face of goal for Roy Krishna after Jayesh Rane played right to him. Zabala, BFC’s central defender deflected the ball into his own net after the Fijian striker got a touch.

As the half came to an end, Sunil Chetri had a chance, but his volley went over the net. In the half, HFC had 68 percent possession and 3 shots on goal to 1 for BFC.

After that, there weren’t too many clear chances, and the Durand Cup went to a first-time winner.
