FULL TIME : NORTHEAST UNITED 2-1 FC GOA

The Highlanders have done it! Against all odds, NEUFC has defeated FC Goa by holding on to the lead throughout the second half. 

FC Goa kept on piling up pressure but some brilliant show at the defence by Highlanders, allowed them to hold on the Gaurs and see them through.

NEUFC stay at ninth and so do FC Goa as they stay at 5th as well. 

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