'Errors' cost BFC dear 19.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
Without having access to Bengaluru FC head coach Albert Roca's mind, it's difficult to say what his plans. Why in a match as crucial as the second leg of the AFC Cup inter-zonal final against FC Istiklol of Tajikistan, did he chose to persist with their weakest link in the defence — Nishu Kumar — or why was their midfield missing when they needed it the most? Though many would argue that on Wednesday, Bengaluru were hard done by poor officiating, and rightfully so, it would be hard to pin their failure to make it a second successive final on just the officials. Having eked out a 1-0 win in the first leg in Dushanbe last month, Istiklol went into the return fixture at Sree Kanteerava Stadium knowing anything other than a loss would see them through to the final. Bengaluru, on the other hand, had to win the tie by a margin of two goals. If this wasn't a herculean task in itself, Nuriddin Davronov's early penalty left the hosts needing three goals to progress. Make or break Though replays ...

We can win ISL if we work hard: Bengaluru FC coach 19.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
Bengaluru FC failed in their bid to reach the AFC Cup final for the second consecutive year but head coach Albert Roca is optimistic that his side can only get better in the season and can win the Indian Super League which begins next month. "There is less than a month to go for ISL. It is going to test our efforts in that and as much as we work hard, we can take the trophy from there," Roca said after his team lost to Tajikistan side FC Istiklol 2-3 on aggregate in the two-legged Inter-Zone final. Bengaluru lost the first leg 0-1 in Hisor last month and then played out a 2-2 draw here last night. Roca said he was optimistic about his side improving from hereon as the players have a never-say-die attitude. "What I see is that the team does not give up no matter what, so I am optimistic that it will only get better from here on for this team," he said. "In terms of football, we have a long road and we will have few changes as the season begins," he added. Roca said he wants his team to forget yesterdays ...

Bengaluru FC suffer 3-2 loss to FC Istiklol of Tajikistan in AFC Cup semi final 18.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru FC's dream of making it a second successive AFC Cup final came to a sorry end after bowing out to FC Istiklol of Tajikistan at the Sree Kanteerava stadium on Wednesday. Down to 10-men for the most part of the game, though they did manage to hold the Tajik champions to a 2-2 draw at their home turf, it was not enough as the visitors nicked the tie 3-2 on aggregate. Istiklol had registered a narrow 1-0 win over Bengaluru in the first leg a few weeks ago. The 2015 edition finalists, Istiklol, will take on reigning champions Air Force Club of Iraq in the final on November 4. Bengaluru went behind in the fourth minute to a dubious penalty decision, replays showing no contact between 'keeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu and Fathuloev Fathullo, scored by Davronov Nuriddin. But that didnt deter Bengaluru spirits and the hosts pulled one back when Rahul Bheke headed home his first goal for the club in the 24th minute. In what was a massive blow to the comeback effort, defender Harmanjot Khabra picked up a ...

Top show by TVS riders 17.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
After successfully completing the Merzouga Rally in Morocco recently, Abdul Waheed Tanveer added another feather to his cap with a win in Group A (upto 450cc) at the Raid de Himalaya. The TVS rider had a near perfect strategy en route to his victory, while team-mate R Nataraj came in second. It has been a hugely successful year for TVS Racing so far with victories in the Dakshin Dare, Desert Storm and it just got sweeter with their riders putting on a brilliant show at the Raid de Himalaya. The Hosur-based team came close to sweeping the top three spots in Group B (upto 250cc), with Shivamogga's Rajendra RE clinching the title ahead of Imran Pasha. However, the rising star on the women's circuit, Aishwarya Pissay, the only woman rider on the team, narrowly missed out on third spot. Aishwarya, though, did have her time in the sun, triumphing in the Ladies Class. Tanveer, from Mysuru, explained that the physical demands of the Raid were tough to handle considering the fluctuating weather, but that he was ...

It's do or die for Bengaluru 17.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Bengaluru FC will take on FC Istiklol in the second leg of the AFC Cup inter-zonal final, aware that they need a win by a no less than a two-goal margin to make it to a second successive AFC Cup final on Wednesday. The tie is poised on a knife-edge after Bengaluru went down 0-1 in the first leg a few weeks ago. If they are to have any shot at revenge against the reigning champions Air Force Club of Iraq, who have booked their place in the final for the second year running, Albert Roca's team will have to turn up in full force against the Tajikistan side that is known to hit on the counter. Moreover, with both the teams finishing runners-up in the last two editions, they will be motivated by the prospect of playing the final in front of their home support this time around. "For sure it's a big game and we can't put a step wrong," said Roca on the eve of the game. "It's difficult to get to the AFC Cup final. We need to have a balance tomorrow, more than we used to have in previous games. You know how ...

GST, online marketplaces dim traditional Deepavali shopping 17.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The last-minute Deepavali shopping spree, in its traditional sense, was lacklustre this year thanks to Goods and Services Tax (GST) on products and the irresistable discounts and offers that online shopping sites have announced for the festival. Though enthusiastic shoppers thronged the city's sweet, clothing, jewellery and other outlets, the shop owners reported an actual slump in sales. Despite the shopping festival of lights being dimmer this season, glittering malls and traditional festive shopping districts like M G Road, Brigade Road, Commercial Street, Jayanagar 4th Block, Malleswaram, Rajajinagar, Marathahalli ORR, Koramangala, Indiranagar, Banashankari and JP Nagar drew thousands who came to shop there. At Kanti Sweets, a popular outlet on Sampige Road, Malleswaram, employees said business was duller this year compared to the previous one, when they served customers who queued up for their sweets. Rajasekhar, an employee, said that this year's Deepavali orders had decreased ...

Bheke makes his presence felt 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
For a few who know North Koreas 4.25 SC, it was a surprise that the team could not make it past Bengaluru FC in the inter-zonal semfinal of the AFC Cup this season. Yes, they conceded three goals in the first leg and barely looked threatening in the final third. But a team that had been on a menacing force at home — scoring seven goals and conceding just one in two home games — there were hopes that the North Korean side could turn the table on Bengaluru. And the manner in which the game progressed at the May Day stadium in Pyongyang, it seemed like the North Koreans were out with a plan. Lettting O Hyok-Chol and Kim Kuk-Born bombard the flanks, the thought was clear — set up goal scoring chances for their target men Kim Yu-Song and Rim Chol-Min inside the Bengaluru box. Though this plan worked to some extent, especially from the right where Bengalurus Nishu Kumar was taken for a run, nothing could find the desired result. While goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu ran away with all the ...

Young Sujan bags grand double 16.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Sujan Bharadwaj claimed a grand double, winning titles in the boys' junior and sub-junior categories in the Dr MS Ramaiah Memorial State-ranking table tennis tournament at the Malleswaram Association here on Monday. In the Junior final, Sujan overwhelmed Krishna S 11-3, 11-9, 11-8, 11-8. He then powered past Aakash KJ 11-9, 11-6, 11-4 to wear the Sub-junior crown. In the Junior girls' final, Yashaswini G brushed aside Aditi P Joshi 11-5, 11-4, 11-6, 14-12 to win the title. Though Kalyani put up a brace fight, she was no match for an in-form Yashaswini. She was stretched the distance in the opening set, but that didn't seem to bother Yashaswini much as she raced ahead to take a 3-0 lead in no time. Later, in the fourth game, though Kalyani once again came close to getting something out of the tie, Yashaswini held her nerves to win the fourth set 13-11 and pocket the title. Results: Boys: Junior: Final: Sujan Bharadwaj bt Krishna S 11-3, 11-9, 11-8, 11-8. Semifinals: Krishna S bt Rathin Kalose 12-10, 7-11, ...
