East Bengal FC beat Chennaiyin FC 1-0 in ISL

East Bengal FC beat Chennaiyin FC 1-0 in ISL

Kolkata, Feb 27 (UNI) East Bengal FC sneaked past Chennaiyin FC by 1-0 at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan here to kick off the Matchweeek 17 proceedings of the Indian Super League (ISL) match on Monday night.
A second half strike by in-form attacker Nandhakumar Sekar ensured that the Red & Gold Brigade garnered their second win since the resumption of the league.

The Carles Cuadrat-coached side has been searching for a beacon of inspiration lately, after finding themselves languishing in the bottom half of the standings last month.
However, the effort by Nandhakumar, who is playing his first season for the club, was special in many ways, helping the side jump to the eighth spot in the table and remain very much in contention to qualify to the playoffs.
There were desperate efforts to break the deadlock earlier in the proceedings, but it took the sublimely sharp Nandhakumar to seal off the task, especially since the Marina Machans continued their struggle to find breakthroughs past the opposition’s defence.
Victor Vazquez launched in a cross into the box, that swung past three Chennaiyin FC defenders, before taking a nick off Cleiton Silva to land in Nandhakumar’s path on the right side of the box.
The attacker bent on the left, before slicing in a shot that took Chennaiyin FC defender Debjit Majumder by shock, opening the account of the home side and potentially spelling promising things for them in the ISL to become the highest Indian goal-scorer in the league at present (5).
Coyle’s pep talk and substitutions bore no result, with Cuadrat’s defensive discipline doing one over the same to keep hold of the coveted three points.

East Bengal FC will be back on field on February 29 against Odisha FC, whereas Chennaiyin FC will next lock horns against the same opposition on March 3.
