1 - 1
Pune City
R. Borges 47'

Pune City fight back to hold NorthEast United after that howler by their goalkeeper Kamaljit Singh. Rowllin Borges scores for NorthEast United but Adil Khan gets at the end of a cross to score a peach of a volley past Pawan Kumar.
Iain Hume was close to scoring the winner and so was Robin Singh, but it remained 1-1, ending Pune City's hopes of making the ISL playoffs.

NorthEast United v Pune City ISL Preview:

NorthEast United will hope it's not a story of so near yet so far when they take on FC Pune City in an Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium on Wednesday.

NorthEast, third on the ISL table with 27 points in 16 matches, can move into the ISL semifinals if they secure 3 points from the game against Pune City.

Pune City, currently on 18 points in 15 matches, can challenge them for a top-4 spot.

A victory against Pune City, who are in great form under new coach Phil Brown, will be difficult for NorthEast to pull out.

Pune City are unbeaten in 5 games and come off a confident 4-1 victory against Jamshedpur FC.

Striker Robin Singh has scored 3 goals in the last 3 games, including a brace against Jamshedpur FC. Marcelinho led them to a 2-1 come-from-behind over Chennaiyin FC and also found the back of the net against Jamshedpur. He, however, will miss this match because of a one-game suspension after accumulating 4 yellow cards.

The combine of Robin, Marcelinho and winger Ashique Kuruniyan has worked wonders for Pune City. Add Iain Hume to the mix and Pune City are formidable opponents now even away from home.

Even a point for NorthEast United or fourth-placed Mumbai City will rule Pune City out of a spot in the playoffs but coach Brown wants to achieve more in the ISL.

“I want the players to help me get a contract at Pune City and continue my adventure in the ISL. To say that I have come for only six games is a negative approach. But I have confidence in my ability to achieve something here,” Brown says.

NorthEast United have lifted themselves up after a 2-1 defeat to Bengaluru FC. Although they were held 1-1 by Delhi Dynamos, they pulled off a commendable victory over Mumbai City FC and look to romp into the ISL playoffs for the first time ever.

Bartholomew Ogbeche has his own rivalry going with FC Goa's Ferran Corominas for the golden boot. With 12 goals, Ogbeche needs 2 more to catch up to Corominas.

Midfielder Rowllin Borges has increased his contribution to the side and even found the back of the net against Mumbai City.

Although central defender Mislav Komorski is injured and ruled out for the rest of the season, Janeiler Rivas has joined as a replacement and will be put to test on Wednesday.

When and where to watch: The Live Streaming of the NorthEast United v Pune City ISL match will be available on Hotstar. TV telecast on Star Sports Network and NorthEast Live. The kick-off is at 7.30 pm IST.
