NorthEast United FC head coach Juan Pedro Benali said, “We had problems in scoring in only two games in the ISL so far, which was against EBFC away from home and against Mohun Bagan in Guwahati. We keep ourselves stronger defensively and have always scored, and we will be trying to do that more than the other team tomorrow.”
East Bengal head coach Carles Cuadrat said, “We are trying to have a team that can fight for being in the higher statures of the ISL. We’ve been in two finals until now and shown against the champions of the last season, like Mohun Bagan Super Giant, Mumbai City, and Odisha that we can win games against them and put them in"
The ISL 2023-24 match between NorthEast United FC and East Bengal begins at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati.
East Bengal loses the ball. Jithin carries the ball and spreads it to Nestor who made the overlap. Nestro squares the ball to Juric and the latter makes no mistake in tapping the ball inside the net.
Juric gets the ball near the East Bengal box and goes for a shot from a distance but the shot is not on target.
Jithin provides the ball to Redeem Tlang who fires through the right flank. He spots Nestor inside the box and finds him with a brilliant through ball. Nestor goes for a first-time shot and manages to roll the ball past Gill for the second NorthEast United goal.
A short corner from EBFC but NorthEast clears the ball and starts a counter. However, Jithin loses the ball and Noarem Mahesh gets the ball. Nandha makes a run inside the box but Mahesh’s cross goes straight to Mirshad.
Cleiton Silva gets the ball near the NorthEast box and goes for a shot on the volley. The effort goes off target.
Goals from Juric and Nestor helped NorthEast United get a comfortable 2-0 lead against East Bengal at the half-time break.
Cleiton Silva provides a pass to Nandha, who makes a clever run inside the box. Nanadha then goes for a first-time shot but the ball hits Mirshad and ends up inside the net. A huge deflection but the Red & Gold Brigade will happily take that as an opportunity.
Tlang shows brilliant vision to find Juric with a through ball. He goes for precision instead of power and his shot goes straight to Gill.
Juric gets the ball and does well to shield the ball and then goes for a curler from the edge of the box. The shot beats Gill and it's the third goal for NorthEast.
Cleiton Silva gets the ball and goes for a shot with his weaker left foot. The shot gets blocked but the ball falls kindly to Forbes, who shoots the ball inside the net from point-blank range.
Eight minutes added at the end of the second-half.
