Super Cup 2018: Bengaluru FC to face East Bengal in the final

Bengaluru FC came back from a goal and a man down to defeat Mohun Bagan 4-2 in the second semi-final of the 2018 Super Cup, at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha, on Tuesday.

Aser Dipanda (42', 90+2') had given the Mariners the lead towards the end of the first half before Nishu Kumar's (50') sending off early in the second half pegged the Indian Super League (ISL) season 4 runners-up down to 10 men.

However, a hat-trick by Miku (63', 65', 88') and a stunning strike by Sunil Chhetri (90') overshadowed Dipanda's brace to help the Blues make it to the final.
