League table toppers Bengaluru FC and fourth-placed FC Pune City played out a listless goalless draw in the first leg semi-final of the Indian Super League match at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex here yesterday. Pune need only a draw to go through to the final with the away goal rule in operation in the return leg.
In what was the third encounter between the two sides this season, both teams - more so the visitors - adopted the caution first attitude leading to a match that provided very little goalmouth thrills to the 9000-strong crowd. BFC, the only side this season to have beaten all other teams and coming into the first leg semi-final unbeaten over their last eight games, started cautiously and adequately soaked up the initial pressure exerted by Pune City. The second leg will be hosted by BFC on March 11.
