BENGALURU: Bengaluru FC struck a massive blow to fellow playoff aspirants Chennaiyin FC, sealing three points with a 3-1 win in an Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 match at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium, here on Saturday.
The win, the fourth in a row for the Blues, put them into the top six for the first time since Matchweek 2 of the season and created a five-point cushion between them and Chennaiyin FC.
A first half full of errors allowed the home team to stamp their authority on the game. They moved into sixth place with 22 points, with a trip to ATK Mohun Bagan next on February 5. For Chennaiyin FC, it was the sixth consecutive game without a win after their 7-3 result against NorthEast United FC in December. They host Odisha FC on February 2 in what could become a must-win game. IANS
