FULL TIME : Churchill Brothers 1-1 East Bengal

East Bengal dominated the second half but could not capitalize on their chances and are punished in the second half as Koffi equalized. A big result for Churchill, as they open their account in the league, while a big disappointing result for East Bengal as they fail to register a win and it could prove costly later on in the league.

That's it from us here at Sportskeeda. This is Sayak signing off. Thank You and Good Night.

HALF TIME : Churchill Brothers 0-1 East Bengal

Churchill Brothers had a positive start but could not find an opening through an resilient East Bengal defence. The Red and Golds hit back Churchill hard as Justin scored his maiden I-League goal.

It would be interesting how Churchill get back into the game. Second half in a few minutes. Stay Tuned.
