The first quarter of match 12 of Premier Futsal 2017 on Friday, September 22 saw Paul Scholes-led Bengaluru Royals play aggressively with 4 goals -- two each from Jonathan da Silva and Medeiros.

On the other hand, Chennai had only one goal on their side, scored by Monteiro. In second quarter, Bengaluru Royals further widened their lead by finding the back of the net twice, once by Renzo Grasso and the other by Raducio Iwan King.

The third quarter was a tight rope with neither teams allowing the other to score. Bengaluru's captain and star player Scholes attempted to score a few but missed them by a whisker.

Indian player Jonathan got the support of the entire stadium when he scored a goal in the 31st minute.

The Crespo-led Chennai Singhams attempted to make up for lost time towards the last quarter, where Ferreira and Marshall scored one goal each. However, Bengaluru were way ahead with 7 goals by then.

The match ended with the crowd cheering for their home team as they walked away with a stellar performance of 7 goals against Chennai, who scored 3.
