Play-by-Play: Jugovic's last minute strike sinks Aizawl hearts

JUST WHEN IT LOOKED THE MATCH was headed for a goalless finish, Jugovic nods in the winner. Two teams were watching closely at this fixture and both were rooting for Bengaluru to pip Aizawl. The two teams were East Bengal and Mohun Bagan as the both teams right behind the league leaders Aizawl were hoping they drop points.

Bengaluru made a bright start and Sunil Chhetri hit the post in the opening minutes of the game. Aizawl took a while to settle in the game and slowly applied pressure on the defending champions.The game saw both keepers making great stops and saves to keep the score at 0-0. 

It looked like a day when both teams playing well could not break the deadlock and then it happened. A silly foul at the right side of Aizawl's box gave Bengaluru the chance to create possibly the last attack of the game. Sunil took this instead of the usual taker Watson and Jugovic the substitute met the ball in the box and sealed the ogame beyon Aizawl's reach.
