SC East Bengal ended the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) in familiar fashion as their last Hero Indian Super League encounter resulted in a 1-0 defeat against Bengaluru FC here, at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. Sunil Chhetri’s solitary strike (24’) proved to be the difference, bagging three points for Marco Pezzaiuoli’s men in their final fixture of their 2021-22 campaign.
The result meant that the Kolkata-based club finished the season in the bottom-place on the points table, with only one win in 20 matches. On the other hand, Bengaluru FC finished in sixth place as they secured 29 points overall.
Antonio Perosevic tested Lara Sharma in the goal from a free-kick situation early in the match but the custodian was steadfast in making the save. The game was evenly balanced until a moment of individual brilliance from Sunil Chhetri broke the deadlock. The skipper controlled a long ball on his chest and slotted the shot into the bottom left corner to give the lead to the Blues in the 24th minute. Udanta Singh then came close to scoring but saw his long-range shot hit the crossbar at the stroke of half-hour.
The first half did not have any more goals apart from a lot of goalmouth action from both teams. The Red & Gold Brigade suffered a setback by losing Perosevic to an ankle injury, who was replaced by Marcelo Ribeiro. Due to a lack of cohesion in the final third, only one goal came from the first 45-minutes and BFC went into the halftime break with a one-goal advantage.
The second half saw a harder push for the second goal from Bengaluru FC. However, they handed a gift to Thongkhosiem Haokip at the hour mark after letting the ball fall to him behind the backline only for him to lift his chip way over the bar. A whole host of changes were made by both tacticians to give time to youngsters and inject more energy in the match after the hour mark.
BFC came close yet again to extend their lead courtesy of Chhetri whose powerful drive was parried away by Suvam Sen in SCEB’s goal. Ananta Tamang and Sen had to combine a few minutes later to deny the second goal to Chhetri, keeping their team in the hunt. Despite SCEB’s best efforts, the Blues kept their lead intact and secured the three points.

NorthEast United played a 1-1 draw in their final league game of the season against fellow strugglers SC East Bengal in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. Goals from Marco Sahanek and Antonio Perosevic managed to split the points either way as Khalid Jamil’s men ended the season with only three wins. As for SC East Bengal, their winless run extended to seven matches.
Marco Sahanek (45+1’) scored his first goal for NEUFC to give them the lead in the first half but the equaliser came through Antonio Perosevic (55’ P) who scored from a precise penalty.
Two good chances fell SCEB’s way in the early stages with Lalrinliana Hnamte making the goalkeeper pull off a good save and Mahesh Naorem Singh hitting the crossbar from long-range. NEUFC survived another scare after the half-hour mark as a volley by Antonio Perosevic missed the target by a whisker.
However, it was the Highlanders that took the lead just a minute before the halftime whistle. A header from Deshorn Brown hit the left post and fell kindly to Marco Sahanek who made no mistake and buried his left-footed shot into the bottom-right corner. Thanks to that goal, NEUFC went into the break with their noses in front.
The second half did not begin according to plan for Khalid Jamil and co as Patrick Flottmann’s push on Fran Sota during an aerial battle was deemed as a foul in the box, leading to a penalty. Perosevic scored the equaliser from the penalty spot, after sending Mirshad Michu towards the wrong way.
Marcelinho came off the bench for NEUFC to inject some energy in the final third and combined with Suhair but the latter’s volley was expertly punched away by Sankar Roy in goal. Four minutes were added for stoppages but neither team had the cutting edge to score the winner in the end. With nothing to separate the teams, the game ended in a draw, much to the disappointment for both sets of players.
SC East Bengal will pull the curtains on their ISL season by playing Bengaluru FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Saturday while NorthEast United’s campaign has come to an end.

Defending champions Mumbai City FC went back into contention for a semi-final spot with a narrow 1-0 win over SC East Bengal in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda.
A solitary goal by Bipin Singh (51’) was the difference, whose individual brilliance helped Des Buckingham’s men climb up to fourth place with 28 points.
SC East Bengal made a spirited start after Mohammad Nawaz had to make an early save from Mahesh Naorem’s powerful drive. A few minutes before the half-hour mark, Thongkhosiem Haokip found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper but a poor first touch denied him a scoring opportunity. His calls for a penalty fell on deaf ears following a faint touch from Mourtada Fall tripping him inside the box.
Despite dominating more of the ball possession, the Islanders could only muster up two shots on target in the first half. The lack of clear scoring chances kept their attackers frustrated as SCEB defended resiliently and played on the counter. It was an intriguing first half but a lack of quality in the final third meant both sides went into the halftime break on equal terms.
Mahesh began the second half in a similar fashion to the first, by forcing Nawaz into a save in the goal. Then, Igor Angulo miscued a tap-in from 10-yards away on the other end which shocked everyone on the pitch. The deadlock, however, was finally broken by a precise and powerful finish by Bipin Singh from outside the box. His left-footed strike beat the goalkeeper on his near post.
A moment of magic was witnessed on the stroke of the 80th minute when Nawaz made a point-blank save from Raju Gaikwad’s overhead attempt. Connecting with the rebound, Fran Sota volleyed his shot above the crossbar to his frustration. The fourth official added four minutes for stoppages and MCFC saw them out with a collective defensive effort to collect the three points.
Mumbai City FC take the field against FC Goa in their next outing at the Athletic Stadium on Saturday while SC East Bengal face NorthEast United in a battle of the bottom-dwellers at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.

Kerala Blasters FC breached the top-four positions after securing a narrow 1-0 win over SC East Bengal in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. The Yellows reached the third position from sixth, thanks to the solitary goal by Enes Sipovic (49’) who scored the winner for the Kochi side with a towering header. As for the Red & Gold Brigade, the winless run extends to five matches.
A measured approach from both teams saw less clear scoring chances in the early stages. Alvaro Vazquez was the first to hit the target for KBFC with a diving header which was easily saved by Sankar Roy between the sticks. The SCEB goalkeeper was quite busy in the remainder of the first half as well but commanded his area expertly to deny a goal to the Yellow Army.
There were no goals to report in the first half as neither team was able to break the deadlock before going into the break. The second half began on a sensational note for KBFC as they went into the lead courtesy of Enes Sipovic. Four minutes into the half, he connected well with a corner and guided the header past the goalkeeper to score his first goal in the ISL.
Ivan Vukomanovic’s men continued to push for another goal after getting their noses in front. Jorge Diaz made room for himself on the 68th-minute mark but had his shot saved easily by Roy. Immediately on the other end, Antonio Perosevic unleashed a volley that almost caught Prabhsukhan Gill off-guard but did not lead to a goal. Mario Rivera made a whole host of changes post the second water break in order to inspire his team to find an equaliser.
Hira Mondal received a late yellow card but could have gotten a red due to the nature of his tackle on Adrian Luna. Six minutes were added by the fourth official for stoppages but KBFC maintained their lead and secured the win with a determined defensive performance.
Kerala Blasters FC faces a stern ATK Mohun Bagan test in their next outing at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Saturday while SC East Bengal plays reigning ISL champions Mumbai City FC at the PJN Stadium on Tuesday after a week’s gap.

Odisha FC fended off a strong challenge from SC East Bengal to record a 2-1 win in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. The result keeps the outfit in the hunt for the top-four places by elevating them to sixth place.
Jonathas (23’) gave the Kalinga Warriors an early lead that lasted until Antonio Perosevic (64’) scored the equaliser in the second half. Javier Hernandez (75’) regained the lead for OFC with a precise finish which proved to be the winner in the end.
In the early stages of the match, Odisha FC piled a lot of pressure and was finally rewarded with an early goal from Jonathas. The cross for the goal was provided by Javier Hernandez who made room on the right flank and served the ball on a platter for the striker who tapped in from close range.
Looking for the equaliser, Hira Mondal took an attempt just before halftime but his left-footed strike went wayward. The first half ended with the Kalinga Warriors retaining their one-goal advantage. The restart saw more sluggish gameplay as neither side was able to find inspiration in the final third.
The best chance to score the equaliser fell to Antonio Perosevic two minutes before the hour mark. A long ball from deep saw the forward find room behind the defensive line but his volley had too much elevation. However, the Croatian made no mistake from a similar opportunity a few minutes later and scored the equaliser with a low finish into the bottom right corner.
Nevertheless, Odisha FC regained the lead ten minutes later through Javier Hernandez. The midfielder received a lay-off from Jonathas who turned from scorer to provider. The right-footed shot from the Spaniard took a slight deflection before swerving into the back of the net.
Javi looked to have scored another a few minutes later but Mondal managed to make a goal-line clearance to deny him the goal. The Red & Gold Brigade had four minutes of added time to find the leveller for the second time which eventually did not arrive, allowing OFC to bag the three points.
Odisha FC faces the reigning champions Mumbai City FC in their next at the PJN Stadium on Sunday whereas SC East Bengal plays an in-form Kerala Blasters FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.

SC East Bengal denied Chennaiyin FC a chance to rise to third with a 2-2 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. The red and golds scored in injury time to deny three points to Bozidar Bandovic’s men, who rise to sixth, one point behind the fourth-placed team in the table.
The Marina Machans raced into a two-goal lead through goals from Hira Mondal (2’ OG) and Ninthoi (15’) in the early stages of the match. Darren Sidoel (61’) pulled one back with a well-hit free-kick and the equaliser finally came through Lalrinliana Hnamte (90+1’) which ended the game in a draw.
CFC went into the lead in the second minute of the match after Suhail Pasha’s header took a deflection from Hira Mondal and went inside the net for an own goal. The left-back’s night became worse at the stroke of the 15th-minute after his individual error led to the second goal. Ninthoinganba Meetel made the interception on the right flank, made room for himself and smashed the ball in the top-left corner to extend the lead to two.
At the half-hour mark, Antonio Perosevic had a chance to reduce the deficit after beating his marker but the forward sent his shot wide. A minute before the halftime whistle, Marcelo Ribeiro’s diving header went off-target from close range. The Red & Gold Brigade pushed with more intensity in order to score in the first half but the CFC defence gave them no room to enjoy.
The restart saw SCEB continue their push for the first goal with the first shot on target coming through Mahesh Naorem Singh. At the hour mark, the goal finally came through Darren Sidoel who scored from a direct free-kick which was hit with a lot of power. The last ten minutes of the game saw both teams majorly cancelling each other out without creating scoring opportunities.
The relentless pressure from SCEB finally paid dividends with Lalrinliana Hnamte scoring the equaliser with a header. The forward was left unmarked inside the box and punished CFC with an accurate headed goal. There wasn’t enough time for either team to find the winner, leading to the points being shared between them.
Chennaiyin FC will next face defending champions Mumbai City FC at the PJN Stadium on Sunday whereas SC East Bengal will lock horns with Odisha FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.

Hyderabad FC reclaimed the top spot in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) standings with a dominating 4-0 win over SC East Bengal at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, here today.
Bartholomew Ogbeche (21’, 44’, 74’) scored a sensational hattrick to extend his lead in the goalscoring charts. Aniket Jadhav (45+1’) also got on the scoresheet for the Nizams. The result takes them to the top of the table with 20 points, ahead of Kerala Blasters FC on goal difference.
Joao Victor tested Arindam Bhattacharja from a free-kick early into the game following a strong start by the Nizams. The goalkeeper was called into action a few more times later after having to make saves from Sauvik Chakrabarti and Aniket Jadhav. However, the custodian could not keep the ball out for long as Bartholomew Ogbeche’s header escaped his grip and landed inside the net for the first goal.
SC East Bengal gave a better account of themselves after the drinks break in the first half. They almost scored the equaliser but a save from Laxmikant Kattimani and a goal-line clearance from Joao kept the lead intact. At the stroke of the 41st minute, HFC doubled the lead after a comedy of errors by SCEB defence allowed Ogbeche to weave past the goalkeeper and score with ease.
Aniket Jadhav then added more misery by scoring the third after a couple of minutes. His low shot from the left flank found the bottom-right corner and the Nizams went into the halftime break with a three-goal advantage.
Marcelo Ribeiro made his debut from the bench in the second half as the Red & Gold Brigade tried to find a breakthrough. However, it was HFC that scored the fourth as Ogbeche finally got his first hattrick of the season at the stroke of the 75th minute. Javier Siverio’s shot deflected into the Nigerian’s path who made no mistake in slotting the shot into the back of the net.
SCEB had a penalty awarded after Ribeiro was tripped inside the box but the spot-kick was saved well by Kattimani who correctly guessed Franjo Prce’s attempt. The Nizams kept their clean sheet intact for the remainder of the match and secured important three points.
Hyderabad FC face Odisha FC in their next fixture at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Thursday while SC East Bengal awaits a stern test of ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby at the PJN Stadium on Saturday.

It took SC East Bengal 347 days to end their winless run in the Hero Indian Super League as the Red and Gold brigade inflicted a blow to FC Goa’s semi-final hopes with a 2-1 win at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, today. The first win of the season helps SCEB rise from the bottom while the Gaurs remain stuck on ninth place in the table.
Mahesh Naorem Singh (9’) scored early for SCEB against the run of play until Alberto Noguera (37’) levelled the score. Naorem Singh (42’) completed his brace after a gift from the opposition defender which remained the difference between the teams.
Despite dominating the possession, FC Goa were dealt a shock in the early stages after an unforced error from Edu Bedia caught Anwar Ali off-guard. Mahesh Naorem Singh took advantage of the situation, pounced on the ball, and put it past the advancing goalkeeper from a one-on-one situation to score the opener. Before the half-hour mark, the skipper of the Gaurs fed Alexander Jesuraj with a penetrating through ball but he wasted the opportunity to equalise by airing the shot above the crossbar.
Darren Sidoel then took a shot from distance post the drinks break but his attempt went wide off the mark. FCG finally scored the equaliser after Jorge Ortiz delivered a defence-splitting pass for Alberto Noguera who found space inside the box and beat Arindam Bhattacharja with his left foot from a narrow angle. Three minutes before halftime, Naorem Singh gave SCEB the lead yet again after Anwar Ali gifted the ball to him inside his own box. Although the striker’s attempt struck the bar and came out, the assistant referee awarded the goal as the ball had crossed the goal line.
The second half saw FCG intensely searching for another equaliser. However, there were not many clear scoring chances for the Gaurs. The Red & Gold Brigade were defending in numbers, denying any sort of space to the opposition attackers. The fourth official added seven minutes of added time after the regulation period. Mario Rivera’s men held on to their lead with a collective effort to record the first elusive win of the season.
FC Goa will be up against Bengaluru FC in their next at the Athletic Stadium on Sunday while SC East Bengal faces a stern Hyderabad FC challenge at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.

A resilient performance from Jamshedpur FC saw them win 1-0 against SC East Bengal in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result allowed Owen Coyle’s men to leapfrog the competition and reach first place in the points table with 19 points.
Ishan Pandita (88’) was the difference-maker after scoring another late goal with a towering header to secure three points for Jamshedpur FC.
The early exchanges saw both teams create half chances as there was little to separate the teams. Arindam Bhattacharja was called into action in the 27th minute after Murray found space behind the defensive line. The goalkeeper did well to leave the box and make the clearance. No major scoring chances fell to either team until the half-hour mark.
Boris Singh had a good chance to open the scoring in the final stages of the first half. The winger found himself unmarked inside the box but his header was disappointing and went way above the crossbar. Despite dominating the possession and creating more attacking opportunities, JFC was not able to score as both teams went into the break without scoring
The Men of Steel started the second half on the front foot, with Jordan Murray hitting the crossbar with a looping header. Influential defender Adil Khan had to be replaced just before the hour mark by Darren Sidoel due to an injury. Murray then had another shot saved by Arindam who parried the ball away with a strong right hand.
The last 15-minutes saw JFC attack with more intensity. Murray was again on target in the 85th minute but his right-footed shot lacked the power to beat the SCEB custodian. However, it was Ishan Pandita yet again who scored a late goal to break SCEB hearts. The striker scored with a precise header after meeting with Greg Stewart’s corner. Pandita’s goal was enough to secure the win and propel JFC to the top of the league table.
Jamshedpur FC will next face high-flying Hyderabad FC at the Athletic Stadium on Monday. On the other hand, SC East Bengal meets Derrick Pereira’s FC Goa at the same venue on Wednesday.

SC East Bengal held reigning champions Mumbai City FC to a 0-0 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium. The result allowed the Islanders to reclaim the first place in the points table. However, their winless streak extends to four matches while SCEB is now 10 games without a win.
Igor Angulo was the first to test the goalkeeper as his header was comfortably saved by Arindam Bhattacharja. Daniel Chima Chukwu was next to threaten the goal on the other end but his attempt from close-range went narrowly past the right side of the goal. SCEB were dealt an early blow due to injury to Joyner Lourenco who needed to be replaced by Ankit Mukherjee.
Both teams struggled to create major scoring chances in the first half. The Islanders dominated the possession but found it tough to find spaces behind SCEB’s backline. Due to the resilient defending from the Red & Golds, both teams went into the halftime break on level terms.
Mohammad Rafique was sent in the second half as a replacement to Bikash Jairu. A few minutes post the restart, strong calls for a penalty from MCFC players were denied by the referee as Adil Khaan allegedly fouled Cassio Gabriel inside the box. The Brazilian then blasted a long-range drive which was expertly parried away by Bhattacharja. The frustration could be seen amongst the MCFC ranks as Ahmed Jahouh came close with a long-range strike at the hour mark.
Vinit Rai made his MCFC debut as Des Buckingham sent him alongside Ygor Catatau to inject more energy on the pitch. Amarjit Singh Kiyam also picked up an injury and was replaced by Darren Sidoel with 15 minutes left to play. Jahouh was the first player to get booked who picked up a fourth yellow card of the season and will be suspended for the next game.
The final stages of the match saw more determined defending from SCEB as they frustrated the Islanders who could not create meaningful scoring chances. The fourth official announced five minutes to be added for stoppages and the Islanders threw everything in their locker but could not find the goal they were looking for. In the end, both teams had to settle for a point each following a goalless draw.
Mumbai City FC is up against Bengaluru FC in their next at the PJN Stadium on Monday whereas SC East Bengal will clash with high-flying Jamshedpur FC at the Athletic Stadium on Tuesday.

A resilient SC East Bengal held Bengaluru FC to a 1-1 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim. The result extends SCEB’s winless run to nine matches while BFC’s hopes of securing playoffs qualification suffer another blow.
Semboi Haokip (28’) opened the scoring with a diving header until Sourav Das (OG 55’) handed the equaliser to the opposition with an own goal.
In a nervy start, SC East Bengal’s goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharja was shown an early yellow card for fouling Prince Ibara. On the other end, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu also had a rusty start as he misjudged a free-kick from deep that went unpunished. It took the 18th minute for either side to create a meaningful scoring opportunity when Lalrinliana Hnamte’s shot from the edge of the box was blocked by the BFC defence.
Roshan Naorem was shown a yellow card for a shirt pull and the subsequent free-kick led to Semboi Haokip breaking the deadlock just before the half-hour mark. He scored with a diving header which gave no chance to the keeper.
Alan Costa nearly scored the equaliser from Cleiton Silva’s free-kick a few moments later but his header went slightly over the bar. Marco Pezzaiuoli’s men kept pressing for an equaliser but went into the halftime break trailing. The restart saw the tactician send Sunil Chhetri to change the complexion of the match.
The equaliser finally came after a period of sustained pressure by the Blues in the second half. A cross from the right flank by Roshan was met by Sourav Das whose miscued header went past his own goalkeeper on the near post. Ibara was a constant threat and had the chance to give BFC the advantage after the hour mark but his header went over the crossbar. BFC was again denied the lead at the 71st-minute mark after Chhetri’s strike from 10-yards out was cleared on the line by Hira Mondal.
The Blues piled on more pressure as substitute Ankit Mukherjee picked up a yellow card for a bad foul on Ashique Kuruniyan in the late stages of the match. Udanta Singh also took an attempt at goal but he sliced across the ball which swerved away from the target. Five minutes were added for stoppages but neither side was able to find the winning goal as they settled for a point each.
SC East Bengal will be next in action against leaders Mumbai City FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Friday while Bengaluru FC also plays the Islanders in their next assignment at the PJN Stadium on Monday.

SC East Bengal held Hyderabad FC to a 1-1 draw but could not stop the Nizams from jumping into second place on the points table, in their 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League fixture at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Thursday. Hyderabad extended their unbeaten run to six matches but the Red & Gold Brigade remain winless in eight matches.
Amir Dervisevic (20’) gave SC East Bengal an early lead against the run of play with a brilliant free-kick but Bartholomew Ogbeche (35’) scored with a header to bring the match level.
Joel Chianese was the first to test Arindam Bhattacharja in the 12th minute after a cautious start from both teams. However, it was SC East Bengal that went into the lead thanks to a powerful direct free-kick from outside the box by Amir Dervisevic. The midfielder scored with a left-footed shot that caught Laxmikant Kattimani unawares, who should have done better in saving the attempt. Daniel Chima Chukwu missed a fabulous opportunity to double his team’s lead by sending his shot wide in a one-on-one situation just before the half-hour mark.
Post the drinks break, Hyderabad FC turned up the intensity and scored through Bartholomew Ogbeche. A pinpoint cross from the left flank by Aniket Jadhav found Ogbeche’s head who easily directed the ball past the goalkeeper. Minutes after the equaliser, Mohammad Rafique then blasted the ball against the crossbar with a powerful shot from outside the box after latching on to a layoff by Chukwu. Both teams went into the break on equal terms.
Manolo Marquez sent Sahil Tavora in Rohit Danu’s place as a halftime substitution. The second half saw both teams cancel each other out and both tacticians made personnel changes to change the complexion of the game. Raju Gaikwad was one of the players to make way who suffered a blow to the head earlier in the match.
At the 85th minute mark, Sahil Tavora attempted a long-range attempt which made Arindam parry the shot away. The rebound from Siverio went wayward, to the goalkeeper’s relief. The fourth official indicated seven minutes of added time for stoppages during the game. Naorem Singh and Juanan got a yellow card each in the late stages of the match. Despite throwing everything in their locker at the opposition, neither side could find the winner and the game ended on even terms.

SC East Bengal’s search for the first win in the ongoing Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 season continues as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Kerala Blasters FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday. This was the third consecutive draw between these two teams in the ISL which extends SCEB’s winless streak to six games.
Tomislav Mrcela (37’) opened his account in the ISL by scoring with a header before Alvaro Vazquez (44’) equalised with a well taken shot just before halftime.
Alvaro Vazquez looked to have sent the Blasters into the lead but the referee reversed his decision and disallowed the goal as he blew his whistle before the striker had put the ball past the goalkeeper. Within minutes after that incident, Prabhsukhan Gill made a crucial save, keeping Antonio Perosevic at bay.
There was a dearth of scoring opportunities in the first half until Tomislav Mrcela found the back of the net with his head. The centre-back got on the end of a long throw from Raju Gaikwad and headed the ball past the keeper from close range. KBFC then lost their defender Enes Sipovic to an injury as he left the pitch disappointed and got replaced by Abdul Hakku.
With a couple of minutes to go to halftime, Vazquez's right footed shot from outside the box took a wicked deflection from Mrcela and went inside the back of the net, pulling the game back to equal terms. Thongkosiem Haokip and Amarjit Singh Kiyam received a yellow card each in the first half for poor challenges.
The second half got off to a cagey start with both teams cancelling each other out and struggling for momentum in the final third. Vazquez attempted a long-range shot late into the second half which was parried away by the goalkeeper. It was the last contribution from the Spaniard as Ivan Vukomanovic sent Jorge Diaz in his place from the bench.
A second goal was disallowed for the Yellow Army on the stroke of 89th minute after Diaz seemingly pushed a defender before heading a cross into the net. The contest ended without any goals in the second half and the points were shared between the two sides. SC East Bengal will face Khalid Jamil’s NorthEast United in their next fixture on Friday while Kerala Blasters FC has a tough meeting with reigning champions Mumbai City FC on Sunday.

It was a night of missed chances but Chennaiyin FC would have felt hard done by as they featured in a goalless draw with SC East Bengal in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco on Friday.
Chennaiyin now sit on top of the table with 7 points. SC East Bengal after back-to-back heavy defeats found some solace, placed 9th with a couple of points. SC East Bengal made a host of changes after their defeat in the goalfest against Odisha. Daniel Chima Chukwu and Amarjit Singh Kiyam were handed their first starts.
Suvam Sen, still filling in for the injured Arindam Bhattacharja, kept the Kolkata side in the game early on. First Mirlan Murzaev tested him from point blank range before Lallianzuala Chhangte shot straight at the goalkeeper. Chennaiyin dominated proceedings as Amir Dervisevic almost scored an own goal in the 25th minute. The Slovenian, in an attempt to intercept a low cross from Chhangte deflected it towards his own goal, but luckily brushed the side-netting.
While there was a flurry of half-chances, neither side looked promising enough to break the deadlock before the break. Seasoned campaigners Adil Khan and Raju Gaikwad were brought in after the change of ends. Despite that, SC East Bengal's defensive frailties were apparent. Suvam reduced again with a great fist on Koman's incoming ball. Chhangte shot the loose ball but his attempt was blocked, five minutes in the second half.
Chennaiyin, who have been scarce but clinical this season so far showed glimpses of the old as the finishing abilities suddenly when missing. Captain Thapa had found Jerry on the through as the full back flung a wild shot. Ariel Borysiuk, the Polish international had a shot after Koman and Chhangte's one-two from a corner kick but the attempt was blocked by Tomislav Mrcela.
The Red and Golds in the final quarter of the match had a few opportunities themselves. Chukwu first released a weak shot on target before Raju, who connected from a Dervisevic corner headed it, only to bounce and nestle into the 'keeper's gloves.
SC East Bengal got their final chance with back-to-back spot kicks in the final minute but the night's trend continued as both were wasted to the comfort of Chennaiyin FC.
