In the dying minutes of the first half Hyderabad FC on the break saw Mishra send the ball to Liston Colaco who handed it back to the former. Mishra then got into the box and whipped in a great cross towards Halicharan Narzary. But, he failed to score as he missed the open goal from just a few inches out.
Leon Augustin gives Bengaluru a 2-goal advantage
