It was a roller- coaster game of football from both the teams with Felix Chidi breaking the deadlock to put Neroca FC ahead in the first half. Dudu stepped up for the Kolkata giants in the second half to get the equalizer.

It was a fight to the finish from both the teams but eventually neither side could come up with the decisive winner.

Subsequently, it was Minerva Punjab FC who emerged as winners to claim their maiden I-League title after their 1-0 win against Churchill Brothers.

Half Time
It has been an enthralling contest so far but Neroca FC has looked the better team this afternoon. The visitors have maintained a good defensive shape which EB has failed to penetrate. The Red and Gold brigade needs to pull up their sock in the second half if they fancy a comeback.

On the other hand, Neroca leads courtesy Felix Chidi's goal. They will be keen to cushion their one-goal lead when they come back from the break.
