January 31, 2022
Bengaluru FC rode on Naorem Roshan Singh's brilliant strike to end Kerala Blasters' 10-game unbeaten run and break into the top-four for the first time this season with a 1-0 win
After a barren first half, Roshan scored from a spectacular free kick in the 56th minute, which turned out to be the decisive goal.
With the win, the Blues moved to the fourth position with 20 points from 14 games

Kerala remained in third place with 20 points from 12 matches. They lost for the first time since their first game of the season.
Playing after more than two weeks, Kerala looked rusty in the opening exchanges with Bengaluru looking the more threatening side to break the deadlock.
Danish Farooq and Prince Ibara came close to scoring
but could not keep their efforts on target before Jorge Diaz's botched clearance hit Sunil Chhetri
and almost went in but an alert Nishu Kumar cleared the ball off the line.
