I-League 2018/19: East Bengal seals crucial away win over Arrows keeps chasing the title


XtraTime Web Desk: East Bengal maintains their pressure on league leaders Chennai City, as the Red & Gold brigade seal a crucial 2-1 away victory over Indian Arrows at Bhubaneshwar today.

It was a highly competitive game as the 90 minutes were etched with three goals, a missed penalty and two red cards. Danmawia Ralte (26′) gave the lead through a stunning finish and the lead was doubled by Joby Justin (64′). Ninthoi Meetei (90′) pulled one back from the spot but it was too little too late to salvage anything for his team.

Referee Senthil Nathan S had to show the red card on two occasions once to each side. Lalram Chullova was the first offender while Aniket Jadhav lasted for just a few moments after coming on from the bench.

The win puts East Bengal in the 4th position with 19 points off 10 games and just two points shy of Chennai City, who will face each other on 14th January at Coimbatore.
