Half-time: Odisha 0-1 Bengaluru. The hosts enjoyed a good start but lack of concentration cost them later as Juanan broke the deadlock in the 37th minute. Udanta could have added a second just before half-time but poor decision-making from the India international means that the game is still very much in the balance. Stay tuned for more action from the second half

Yellow Card
Bengaluru
44' Yellow card Ashique Kuruniyan
44' What has he done!? Big let-off for the hosts. Delgado gives the ball away to Chhetri. The skipper picks Udanta, who is unmarked. The winger tries to cut it in to Augusto rather than going for goal himself. Poor decision and Odisha (eventually) have it away
41' Odisha have not troubled Bengaluru since Nandha's shot on target in the opening minutes. Can they knick one before half-time?
