FC Bengaluru United Media
FC Bengaluru United putting their most commanding performance of the league when it mattered the most routed MEG 4-0 in the seventh game of the ongoing BDFA Super Division Campaign. MEG were coming off the back of an all-win run, but United combined skill with alacrity and aggression to emerge worthy victors.
United’s positive intent was evident from the word go as they hit the ground running, putting the MEG defence under tremendous pressure. MEG finally succumbed in the 22nd minute when a cross from Ronaldo, which was deflected by the defender, was picked up by an alert Malem, who neatly shot the ball into the top corner of the goal.
MEG tried to respond a few minutes later, but the header after a good throw in was just wide of the goal. FC Bengaluru United not lifting their foot off the pedal, created chances at will with Chaitan, Ronaldo, Malem, and Hayden in the thick of the action. In the 37th minute Arun made the most of a defensive lapse to regain control of the ball and feed it to Ronaldo who did not make any mistake.
The second half was no different as FC Bengaluru United continued their domination. Despite the 2-0 lead, they did not let the intensity dip, attacking the MEG defence with strong wing play and quick counters. In the 73rd minute, Chaitan’s nimble play was parried away by the MEG keeper, only to find Vignesh who calmly tapped the ball in.
3-0 soon became 4-0 in the 82nd minute when Vignesh’s through ball was deftly taken by Anup all the way into the box for Chaitan to complete the finishing touches.
An emphatic performance from FC Bengaluru United, perhaps their most dominating effort so far!
