Stay tuned for report and reaction from a game that gave us plenty to think about right towards the end. Until the next game, this is Nisanth V Easwar signing off. Goodbye!
90' + 5' Jamshedpur score just their second goal of the season to hand Bengaluru to another defeat. Trinidade stepped up after Bheke fouled Doutie inside the box in the dying moments of the game.
90' + 5' Referee blows for full-time!
90' + 4' Bengaluru camp at the edge of the Jamshedpur penalty box with the ball being sprayed around very quickly in desperation. Jamshedpur have understandably parked a massive bus.
90' + 2' Four minutes of added time...enough time for an equaliser?

Penalty Goal
90' + 1' Penalty Goal Matheus Trindade Gonçalves
90' + 1' JAMSHEDPUR SCORES!! Massive turnaround here in Bengaluru as Trinidade Goncalves coolly converts the spot-kick, sending Gurpreet the wrong way!
90' Rahul Bheke brings Doutie down as the forward chases a long ball into the box. Yellow card for the offender. Goncalves steps up...
F. Choudhary

88' Yellow card Farukh Choudhary
S. Singh
J. Mawihmingthanga
87' Substitution Jerry Mawihmingthanga Siddharth Singh
87' Subrata Paul Bengaluru FC Jamshedpur FC ISL 4 2017/2018 Job well done so far. Another clean sheet on its way.
Braulio Nóbrega
H. Khabra
85' Substitution Harmanjot Singh Khabra Braulio Nóbrega Rodríguez
85' CHANCE!! Nishu is released into the box and the full back cuts a cross back from the byline towards Miku who can't direct it towards the net!
85' Khabra and Juanan replaced by Braulio and Nishu. Attacking changes from Roca to try and break the deadlock in Bengaluru. Jamshedpur holding firm!
N. Kumar
84' Substitution Juan Antonio González Fernández Nishu Kumar Tashni
82' Double change coming up for Bengaluru FC. Khabra seems to have picked up a knock and might have to be one of the substituitions
S. Doutie
K. Belfort
81' Substitution Kervens Fils Belfort Sameehg Doutie
81' Guess who is coming on? Sameehg replaces Belfort. According to some, he had already left the country! But no, he is back in action for the men of steel. 
80' Edu Garcia tries to be clever and instead of playing a free-kick on the right into the centre of the box, chips the ball sideways into the path of Delgado who blasts over!
79' Bose plays a one-two with Chhetri on the left flank before crossing into the box. Cleared by Jamshedpur.
77' SAVE!! Subrata with a good reflex save to keep Sunil Chhetri's close-range strike away!  Good run by the skipper picked out well by Khabra!
E. Paartalu
74' Substitution Erik Paartalu Antonio Rodríguez Dovale
74' Change of plans by Roca now, Toni Dovale coming on for Paartalu. Attacking change!
72' Miku squares the ball to the left for Sunil Chhetro to take a touch to cut in and curl a shot towards goal that has Paul pull off a fumbling save! Rebound is cleared by Tiri!
68' Chhetri and Souvik challenge for the ball close to the corner flag and the defender does well to shield the ball away from the Indian striker and to not concede a corner. It looked like it was a corner though.
67' Garcia nutmegs Goncalves on the run and forces Paul into a very good low save to his right.
67' Lot more pressing upfront by the visitors. Belfort and Jairu have been much better since the restart. 
E. Paartalu
Yellow Card
66' Yellow card Erik Paartalu
66' Miku's wild knee-height lunge a few minutes earlier was not spotted by the referee but Paartalu is now firmly in the books for a bad challenge on the same player. 
64' Jamshedpur break away through Faruk who waits and waits and waits before releasing Jerry to his right whose cross back into the centre for Belfort is blocked and cleared!
63' Bengaluru responding to the pressure positively. Lot of the ball just outside the Jamshedpur penalty box.
61' JUST WIDE!! Belfort at the centre of it again as he threads a wonderful defence-splitting through ball into the path of Jerry on the right who gets into the box and drags a low shot inches wide off the far post!
60' While Bengaluru have had more possession in this half also, they have completely failed to convert that into proper chances. A goal can change the dynamics of this game completely. 
57' Out of nowhere, Jamshedpur have forced Bengaluru onto the backfoot. Can we finally see a slightly more open game?
56' CHANCE AGAIN! Shouvik's header forward is flicked forward by Belfort using his backheel into the path of Farukh whose first touch is worse than Romelu Lukaku's. Gurpreet collects!
54' CHANCE!!! Bikash Jairu whips a dangerous cross into the centre of the box which misses Bengaluru defenders and reaches Belfort at the far post. The former Kerala man shrugs off the challenge of Khabra and tries to poke the ball past Gurpreet from five yards out but it is saved!!
52' The second half has started just like the first. Scrappy game full off turnovers and fouls in midfield. 
50' Tight-knit build-up play by the home side as Garcia plays the ball quickly to Miku whose flicked return ball is hits the defender's legs and Jamshedpur clear!
49' Paartalu tries an audacious one-two with Chhetri inside the box but Souvik pinches the ball of him easily and clears the danger. 
48' Bheke's ball from the deep is challenged in the air by Garcia and Bikey and the former heads it harmlessly wide 
46' Khabra and Jairy fight for the ball on the far side and the referee awards a free-kick in favour of the former. No arguments by either players
45' We're back for the second half!
Bengaluru fc jamshedpur Six goals from six games so far for this man. How about one tonight, Miku?
Did anybody expect goals tonight? Well, Jamshedpur have played exactly how they have played in most of their gamed and have frustrated the home side who have had plenty of the ball. Stay tuned for the second half. 
45' + 2' End of the first half in Bengaluru. 0-0!
45' + 1' Two minutes of added time. Tiri comes across and neatly takes the ball off the feet of Udanta and recycles possession. Good defending!
44' Belfort combines well with Jairu to get away from Bheke and get into a good position inside the box but Jairu's cross is too close to the goalie. 
41' Jamshedpur can't connect any of their balls towards their forwards. Belfort is a lonely man in attack and with Mehtab gone, Bengaluru will have much more freedom in midfield. 
39' Jamshedpur's breakaway is brought to an end by a late challenge on Belfort by Khabra and the referee awards a free kick. Mehtab is replaced by Farukh due to an injury (?) during the stoppage of play. 
F. Choudhary
M. Hossain
38' Substitution Mehtab Hossain Farukh Choudhary
37' Bengaluru attack in numbers and plays in Miku on the left who cuts in to his right foot and squares the ball into centre. Miku's ball is intercepted and Jamshedpur counters..
33' 75% of the ball for Bengaluru but the deadlock is intact. Jamshedpur are dealing with everything been thrown at them so far. This game needs a goal and may as well be a moment of magic that could give us that. 
31' Garcia from the left squares the ball towards Paartalu who was waiting in the centre. The Australian chooses to shoot rather than pass but the strike is straight at Paul. 
30' Rahul Bheke marauds forward and is holding onto the ball near the corner flag for Bengaluru! Such has been the attacking freedom afforded by Coppell's men so far. 
28' Jerry waits patiently on the right for support and lays the ball off for Bikash to deliver a curling cross into the box but there is nobody to head it on target!
26' Chhetri Bengaluru Jamshedpur FC Tightly fought game so far but Bengaluru are passing the ball around with ease!
24' SHOT!! Miku attempts a long-ranger from way outside the box and Subrata does well to collect it cleanly as the ball was dipping!
23' Another cross into the box and this time it is Erik Paartalu with a soft header which is collected by Subrata Paul. 
23' CHANCE!! Good one-two by Edu Garcia in midfield, takes the return ball forward and chips the ball towards the far post for Chhetri who hits the sidenetting!
22' Much better build up from Bengaluru. Edu Garcia picks up Udanta's lay off at the edge of the box and tries to curl a shot into the top right corner of Paul's net. Wide!
19' LOVELY footwork by Miku at the edge of the box to get away from his marker before crossing into the centre but header back at Subrata's goal by Paartalu is dealt easily
18' Neither team getting any joy in attacking thirds. Probably what Coppell had in mind before the game.
15' Another chip into the box is challenged by Shouvik and Udanta, with latter coming off the worse. Down and receiving treatment. 
14' Dimas Delgado tries to pick out Miku's run into the box with an attempt to lob but it is intercepted. The plan is good but the execution? Not so much.
12' The 'Steel Derby' is off to a scrappy start. We are yet to see goalmouth action here in Bengaluru. Just another day in the office for Jamshedpur, the start they might have wanted.
10' Jamshedpur steals possession in midfield and Jerry dribbles into the box but Johnson executes a well-timed sliding challenge to take the ball away from him and clear the danger
9' Chhetri is fouled from behind by Mehtab and the ref waits to see if the Indian skipper can get up and counter-attack. Mehtab once again cynically blocks him from breaking away. Chhetri has a wry smile on his face. Memories of former clashes?
8' Unsursrisingly, Bengaluru are dominating possession. Jamshedpur, as expected, taking a back seat. 
6' Belfort comes forward with the ball and tries to drive at the Bengaluru defence but the ball is taken off him. Bengaluru fail to clear and Jairu pounces. Bikash moves forward and tries to square it to his teammate on the right but his pass is easily intercepted. 
5' Khabra with a long ball over the top for Miku to chase but Tiri is there to clear. Clearance is deflected off Miku's legs for a Jamshedpur throw-in
4' Garcia loses the ball during build up to Souvik and brings the full back down before he can start a counter
2' Blues with the ball in the early stages of the game. Chhetri comes deep to pick up the ball but is fouled by Memo.
1' Miku takes the ball forward straightaway, moves to the right and crosses into the centre but Subrata claims the ball easily
1' KICK-OFF! We're underway!
Coppell Jamshedpur Bengaluru Back to the top of the table for Bengaluru? This man might have other ideas!
Bengaluru FC Chennaiyin FC ISL 2017/18 Can we expect a good game tonight?
Both sides lost their previous games. Jamshedpur were downed by Pune and Bengaluru were shocked by a last minute winner Chennaiyin's Dhanpal Ganesh. Who will get back to winning ways tonight? The teams are out!
Second-placed Bengaluru FC, who are level on points (12) with Chennaiyin and FC Goa, will not find it easy against Jamshedpur's defence tonight. Coppell's boys have only conceded one goal so far from their five games and incredibly, they have found goalscoring difficult as well. Will they once again settle for a draw in an away game?
Bengaluru FC are yet to draw a match in this season's ISL. They have won four and lost two games, scoring 14 goals and letting in 8 along the way.
Kervens Belfort replaces Azuka for the goal-shy Jamshedpur. Coppell loves cleansheets but tonight they will be looking much more than just a clean-sheet. They need goals and three points. 
Albert Roca has made changes to the side that lost against Chennaiyin FC a few days ago. Dovale fails to keep his place in the starting lineup. Udanta starts. Miku has been amongst the goals and will look to continue the habit tonight as well. 
Jamshedpur FC XI: Subrata Paul (GK), Andre Bikey, Tiri (C), Shouvik Ghosh, Trindade Goncalves, Mehtab Hossain, Bikash Jairu, Memo, Souvik Chakrabarti, Jerry Mawhmingthanga, Kervens Belfort.
Bengaluru FC XI: Gurpreet Singh (GK), Rahul Bheke, Juanan, Harmanjot Khabra, Subhasish Bose, Erik Paartalu, Dimas Delgado, Edu Garcia, Miku, Udanta Singh, Sunil Chhetri (C).
