GOA, Oct 28: The first meeting of the season between two Indian Super League (ISL) heavyweights finished all square after FC Goa and Bengaluru FC shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Monday.
In what was a fiercely contested game in the midfield, the teams struggled to carve out clear-cut chances, but the visitors, who produced the better output in the final third, found the breakthrough through Udanta Singh in the 62nd minute.
However, in dramatic fashion, Goa�s Ferran Corominas won a penalty in injury time and converted it himself to salvage a point for his team. The result saw FC Goa join Mumbai City FC and NorthEast United FC at the top of the table with four points from two games, while Bengaluru have now played out a second straight draw.
When Bengaluru was on the verge of victory, a clumsy challenge by Ashique Kuriniyan on Corominas after the youngster lost the ball resulted in the referee pointing to the spot. Corominas converted coolly from 12 yards to send the home supporters into delirium and earn a point for his team. � IANS
