Full time - NEU FC 0 - 2 ADK!
The visitors have owned the home side in this bout. Atletico de Kolkata played fantastic football to silence the players and also the boisterous crowd. The first goal came in the first half when Fikru converted a lovely pass by Garcia. Major part of the second half was quiet as both the teams kept losing possession. The red card for Borja did give the home side a glimpse of hope but the visitors held their ground and were rock solid in the defense. Adding salt to the wound, Atletico de Kolkata scored another goal in the dying minutes of the second half to secure three more points.
Last minute drama!
Pody scores to double the lead and surely seal the game! Sanju puts in a searching cross from the right flank. Boithang puts in a swimming pool dive but fails to intercept the cross. Pody gets the ball, chests it down, and blazes it past keeper to find the net, There is pin drop silence in the stadium. The visitors have stunned the home side here.
Big chance there for Durga. Durga collects a pass just outside the box. Durga gets it on his weaker left foot and blasts it wide of the right post. Was that the last best chance for NorthEast United FC?
Sahani makes way for Sanju!
Aibor Khongjee thinks Fikru gets a hand on that occassion and stops the play by holding the ball. The assistant ref points the fould towards the opponent. That should have been a yellow card for Aibor for a deliberate hand ball.
First RED CARD!
Borja commits a stupid challenge as he pulls down the opponent to the turf. He receives his second yellow of the day and is asked to leave the field. Certain players get into an argument with the ref and have to be pulled back. The crowd enjoys the nuisance and roar as the player leaves. The co-owner, John abraham, too gives an animated reaction. Nonetheless, a free kick is awarded amidst of the entertainment. Joan Capdevila goes for the spot kick but blazes it into the wall. Poor effort from the captain.
Dong Hyun Do goes for the glory and makes a mess out of this chance. He gets the ball on the right flank, not far away from the flank, cuts inside and decides to take a shot. The shot was a pathetic one as it sails over the post.
Dong Hyun Do capitalises on the error made by the defender. He finds space on the left flank and puts in the cross after a couple of touches. The cross is a good one but slightly short of his teammate. The ball is cleared by the defender but straight to Adinga who takes a shot which lacks venom and goes straight to Roy.
The captain has his night terminated as he is replaced by Arnal LLibert. Some boo chants from the fans, yet again!
Atletico de Kolkata - Jofre makes way for Podany. NorthEast United FC - Keene comes out, Bertos comes in!
Keene puts in a loopy ball that balloons towards Joan Capdevila in front of the goal. The forward tries to smash the ball but only manages to kick thin air. The ball goes towards Adinga who finds the net but is flagged off side. The captain should have surely done better there.
Just not happening!
NorthEast United FC have been struggling to enjoy possession. The passes have been a little to hard or a little to slow at times. Theu really need to put their act together!
Lack of Possession!
Kolkata are losing the ball way too easily in the middle. NorthEast United will not let the visitors get away with it everytime.
Koke makes way for Dong Hyun Do! The crowd has a mixed reaction to this one. Loud cheer for Do but certain boo chants as Koke goes out.
Isaac Chansa makes way for Tomas Josl.
Milan fouls Baljit Sahni to offer a free kick in a dangerous position. Jofre gets to take it and he curls it in towards the goal. That ball just needed a slight touch to reach the net but none offered it. The goalie eventually collects it with ease.
Borja puts in a lovely ball over the defense line to find Garcia who makes the run a tad early and heads it over the cross bar. Much to his relief the flag was up.
Booking for diving!
Borja cuts past Joan Capdevila, sticks his leg on the no.11 and dives onto the turf. The ref gets that bang on and draws the yellow card to book the midfielder for diving inside the box. The crowd roars when the card comes out.
Chansa tussles with the defenders and eventually wins the ball and manages to keep it on his feet. He then pulls it back to find Koke who fails to hit the target. He should have done better.
The captain, Garcia, tries his luck and blasts a volely way above the cross bar. The Spaniard is disgusted with himself. A pass would have been more appropriate there.
Keene receives the ball on the left flank and plays a cheeky back heel for Chansa. He tries to put it for Keene but the ball is cleared for a side throw. Early encouragement for the home fans.
