Chennaiyin FC was left ruing a host of missed chances as Bengaluru FC (BFC) held it to a goalless draw at the Fatorda Stadium on Friday. Csaba Laszlo’s men missed more than half-a-dozen opportunities against a largely pedestrian BFC, leaving them in eighth place on 17 points, and without a win in five matches.
BFC, which had hoped to build on the win over SC East Bengal, remains sixth on the Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21) points table with 19 points, three off the last playoff berth.
As early as the eighth minute Sunil Chhetri was furious for not getting a free kick for what he thought was a back pass from Eli Sabia to Vishal Kaith. The skipper would come close on 34 minutes when his fierce shot from the edge of the six-yard box was superbly blocked by Sabia.
