Two goals from Bengaluru FC’s mercurial skipper Sunil Chhetri (31st and 33rd minutes) and a winner from young Daniel Lalhlimpuia (51st) sent Ashley Westwood’s boys through to the last-eight, making them the only Indian club left in the competition.

The Blues bowed out at the same stage in the same stadium last season when they went down 0-2 to South China AA.
