In a heartbreaking turn of events, Bengaluru, led by Fijian superstar Roy Krishna, lost the final match of the Hero Super Cup to Odisha by a score of 2-1. Despite Krishna’s best efforts, Bengaluru was unable to secure the trophy as they were defeated by a determined Odisha side.
The opposition team counted on the impressive performance of Brazilian striker Diego Mauricio, who scored both of Odisha’s goals. Bengaluru managed to reduce the margin thanks to a goal scored by Indian legend striker Sunil Chhetri, but it wasn’t enough to turn the tide in their favor.
For Krishna, who is in his first season with Bengaluru after achieving great success with Mohun Bagan in India, this defeat will undoubtedly be a disappointment. The Fijian superstar has been a key player for his team throughout the season, contributing with his speed, technical ability, and scoring prowess. However, despite his best efforts, he was unable to lead Bengaluru to victory in the Super Cup final.
It has been a mixed season for Bengaluru, who won the Durand Cup but lost both the final matches of the Indian Super League and now also the Hero Super Cup. The team will undoubtedly be disappointed with their performance in these crucial matches, but they can take solace in the fact that they have a talented squad and even thou achieved to play three grand final matches in the season – in all national competitions they had played.
Looking ahead, Bengaluru will need to regroup and work on improving their performances in key matches if they want to achieve success in the upcoming seasons. With players like Krishna and Chhetri in their ranks, they undoubtedly have the talent to do so.
