By H.JanGra Feb 22, 2022

BFC rose to fifth place with 26 points

On the other hand, a third winless outing meant Odisha's semifinals ambitions suffered a huge blow.

Nandhakumar Sekar (8th minute) pounced on a loose ball to score early in the game

But Danish Farooq's (31st) header levelled the score.

Cleiton Silva (49th) scored from the penalty spot in the second half, which eventually separated the two teams.

Odisha's next outing will be against top-four contenders ATK Mohun Bagan

Bengaluru FC also play the Mariners next at the PJN Stadium on Sunday.
