ISL Update- Bengaluru FC eased past Jamshedpur FC at Sree Kanteraava Stadium to move to the second place in the League table in this season. They have collected 22 points in 12 matches so far and now they are only two points behind FC Goa who are sitting at the top. ATK are in third place with 21 matches, but they have one more match in their hands. So, the battle of finishing at the top of the table after the end of League stage has begun.

The team who will be at the top of the table after the end of the League stage this season will get the chance to play directly in the AFC Champions League. All these three teams have an equal probability of achieving that.

On the other hand, Jamshedpur FC have stayed at the sixth position in the League table with 13 points in 11 matches so far. Their chances of finishing in the top four will decrease more if they can not secure a win in the next game.
