ISL MEDIA RELEASE: A terrific hat-trick from star striker Bartholomew Ogbeche (29’, 37’, 39’), the second-fastest in the ISL, had pulled the Highlanders level in the first-half after a Rowllin Borges own goal (4’) and Thoi Singh brace (15’, 32’) had propped Chennaiyin FC up. Borges would then make amends for his mistake by netting the match-winner early in the second half.

Without a win in two games, the hosts started the match with urgency and were rewarded with an early goal after they forced a corner in the fourth minute. Issac Vanmalsawma whipped a devilish delivery in and Borges inadvertently headed it into his own net from inside the six-yard box.

Though NorthEast started dominating possession, it was Chennaiyin who struck again. In the 15th minute, Jerry Lalrinzuala spotted Issac’s run down the left and sent in a wonderful through-ball for the winger to latch on to. Issac surged forward and squared the ball for Thoi who finished the move. The Highlanders pulled a goal back minutes before the half an hour mark after the energetic Federico Gallego managed to get a shot on target. Goalkeeper Karanjit SIngh, however, could not hold on to it and Ogbeche capitalised on the offering before slotting a finish into the far corner.

Chennaiyin, though, restored their two-goal advantage almost immediately. Raphael Augusto wriggled free of his markers down the left wing and got to the touchline. His square-ball was bundled in by Thoi at the near post. The see-saw nature of the game continued but it was NorthEast who would take the game by the scruff of its neck. Ogbeche came into his own and struck twice to pull the Highlanders level.

First, he outjumped Francisco Fernandes to meet Borges' cross and steered it home. Minutes later, he met Gallego’s wonderful through ball and rounded the keeper before rolling the ball into the net. NorthEast continued their ascendancy after the break and soon went into the lead. Gallego found Reagan Singh down the right wing. His cross was blocked and Borges latched on to the loose ball on the edge of the area and swept a brilliant finish into the bottom corner.

Chennaiyin pressed hard for a way back into the game but NorthEast showed composure to hold on to their advantage. Chennaiyin coach John Gregory threw on Jeje Lalpekhlua in a bid to conjure up an equaliser. He almost got on the end of a header from Andrea Orlandi in added time but just could not steer it in as Eelco Schattorie’s team held on to register a famous victory.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: FC Goa notched their first win of this Hero Indian Super League season after a convincing 3-1 result over defending champions Chennaiyin FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Chennai, on Saturday. A first-half strike from Edu Bedia (12’) set them on their way before Ferran Corominas (53’) and Mourtada Fall (80’) sealed the result for the Gaurs. Eli Sabia scored the consolation for the home team deep into stoppage time.

FC Goa had all the early possession as expected while Chennaiyin were camped in their own half, trying to get a measure of their opposition. With their full-backs playing high up the pitch, Goa were finding space down the wings and Mailson had to be alert to clear a cross from Coro in the eighth minute. Two minutes later, Jackichand Singh raced down the left wing and fizzed a ball across the box which was almost met by Coro.

The sustained spell of pressure paid off for Goa in the 12th minute as Lenny Rodrigues got to the touchline down the right wing after a smartly worked throw-in routine. His cut-back into the box found Edu Bedia who placed a smart finish into the bottom corner of Karanjit Singh’s goal with the help of a slight deflection. Chennaiyin slowly grew into the game and fashioned several chances. Gregory Nelson set up Anirudh Thapa on the edge of the area around the half an hour mark but the youngster’s attempted curler went wide.

Shortly later, Inigo Calderon ventured into the penalty box before finding Francis Fernandes. However, the winger’s shot was saved by Mohammed Nawaz.
The home team started the second period with urgency but FC Goa doubled their lead, capitalising on some poor defensive work from Chennaiyin FC. A throw-in down the right saw Seriton Fernandes get to the touchline and fizz a low ball across the face of the box. Nobody picked up Coro who darted in at the far post to knock in his third goal of the season. Chennaiyin almost got a goal back in the 67th minute when Calderon’s long throw into the box was flicked on by Jeje Lalpekhlua. It fell for Raphael Augusto who blazed over from point-blank range.

Any hopes of a Chennaiyin comeback were extinguished in the 80th minute. Ahmed Jahouh picked up the ball down the right and swung in a cross which was flicked on by Coro towards Mourtada Fall and the Senegalese managed to direct a looping header into the top corner. Chennaiyin got a consolation goal in the end through Eli Sabia who headed in Andrea Orlandi's corner in the 95th minute. Goa are now on four points from two games while the defending champions are yet to open their account.

MATCH REPORT:

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: Bengaluru FC got their Hero Indian Super League campaign off to a perfect start with a 1-0 win over defending champions Chennaiyin FC at the Sree Kanteerava stadium, Bengaluru, on Sunday.

In what was a repeat of last season’s final at the same venue, Miku’s 41st minute strike was enough for the Blues to overcome the visitors’ challenge. Chennaiyin FC will be disappointed as they got nothing out of this game, particularly after they were gifted two gild-edge chances to take the lead.
Bengaluru, though, were quick to get off the blocks with Eric Paartalu being gifted an excellent chance as early as the third minute. After some scrappy play in the Chennaiyin box following a throw-in by Rahul Bheke, the loose ball fell to the Australian midfielder’s feet but his snap shot was aimed straight at goalkeeper Karanjit Singh.

The visitors started to gain a foothold in the match through their quick breaks as the minutes wore on and they should have drawn first blood midway into the game. Gregory Nelson and Jeje Lalpekhlua broke at pace following an error by Bheke and Nelson’s perfectly threaded through ball left the India striker one-on-one with Gurpreet. As the Bengaluru goalkeeper rushed forward, Jeje slotted the ball for a completely unmarked Germanpreet Singh but his pass was over-hit with the Chennaiyin midfielder unable to direct it towards an empty goal.
Bengaluru were seeing plenty of the ball but failed to make it count while Chennaiyin continued to look dangerous on the break. Another Bheke mistake around the half an hour mark almost gifted Chennaiyin with a goal after his poor back-pass was intercepted by Jeje. The off-balance Chennaiyin forward had only Gurpreet to beat but lost his footing.

Gurpreet then pulled off a fine save from a long-distance effort by Germanpreet before Bengaluru took the lead against the run of play.
Xisco Hernandez won the ball following a midfield scrap and quickly released Miku behind the Chennaiyin defence with a perfectly weighted pass. The Venezuelan striker unleashed a thunderbolt of a shot which, despite being aimed at Karanjit’s near post, left the Chennaiyin goalkeeper with no chance.
The visitors came close to grabbing an equaliser straight after the interval following a long-throw into the Bengaluru box. The resulting loose ball fell to Inigo Calderon at the edge of the box whose blocked shot fell to Eli Sabia with his back to goal. The central defender’s clever backheel unfortunately was directed straight to the rival goalkeeper.

The visitors took the game to the opposition in the second period with Bengaluru looking dangerous on the break. One such break in the 72nd minute found Sunil Chhetri with some space in the Chennaiyin box but Calderon was quick to recover and deny the Bengaluru skipper the chance to put the match to bed.
Gregory threw caution to the wind in the closing stages by bringing on striker Carlos Salom for defender Mailson Alves. But while Chennaiyin threw the kitchen sink, the hosts held on to their lead for a perfect start to their campaign.
