Bengaluru FC Fall To Persipura Jayapura In AFC Cup


Indonesian giants Persipura Jayapura continued their superb run as they beat Indian club, Bengaluru FC 3-1 at Mandala Stadium on match day two of the AFC Cup’s group E fixture. Ashley Westwood’s side was hit badly by the absence of key Indian players Sunil Chhetri, Robin Singh, Shankar Sampingiraj, Keegan Pereira, Eugeneson Lyngdoh and Siam Hanghal who were called for national duty for the India vs Nepal World Cup qualifier on 12th March.

Persipura coach Osvaldo Lessa started with Boaz Solossa leading the line upfront with support from Pugliara in the midfield.

First Half: Kabes and Pugliara put Bengaluru FC behind by 2 goals

It took just 4 minutes for the home team to take the lead when Kabes’ free-kick took a touch of theunderside of the cross-bar on its way into the top left corner.

The Indonesian side were handed another chance when BFC goalkeeper Ralte failed to tackle Solosso who moved into the opposition box with ease only to shoot inches wide of the right post.

Solossa looked in sublime form, cleverly beating the offside trap and putting in a cross which was tapped in by Pugliara who was unmarked at the far post and just like that with 23 minutes on the clock, the score board read 2-0 in favor of the home side.

Bengaluru FC struggled to make any headway and the first half was completely dominated by the home  team.

Second Half: Pugliara seals the game with a second

Trailing by two goals, Bengaluru FC looked to start the second half well but were struck by a Kabes cross which was duly converted by Pugliara for his second of the game and Persipura’s third.

The visitors almost immediately pulled one back as Metei shot across the face of the goal from the left after he received a pass from Rooney but without any success. Another attempt by the blues was headed wide by Rooney from Walker’s corner in the 79th minute.

And just when one thought blues were destined to return without any goals to their credit, Thoi Singh did well to lay the ball off for Rino Anto who found Vineeth. The resultant header from Vineeth was spilled by the opposing keeper, Dede Sulaiman, and the ball rolled into the net.


So the match ended with Persipura Jayapura winning 3 – 1 against BengaluruFC. The result takes the Indonesian outfit to top the group E standings with six points while Bengaluru FC, who have three points in their kitty, suffered their first defeat in the AFC Cup. The Bangalore club next play Warriors FC in the next round of the AFC Cup at home on 17th March.
