Nandhakumar Sekar’s strike helped East Bengal FC get the better of Mohun Bagan Super Giant in a thrilling Durand Cup game at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan

East Bengal coach, Carles Cuadrat was very pleased with his team’s performance but is still lingering around the fact, that Durand Cup is more of a pre-season tournament

The Red & Golds not only registered a hard-fought win in the first Kolkata Derby of the season, but also emerged winners in the derby for the first time since 2019.

The opening half turned out goalless but was intense, with chances coming in the way for both teams. Moments later, Jordan Elsey had the chance to give East Bengal FC the lead

However, it was Sekar who broke the deadlock in the second half with a well-taken goal after a counter-attack from East Bengal FC
