Full Time
It was a well scripted victory for the hosts, as they run away comfortable winners with the score line reading 2-0. Ali Fasir gave NRSC the lead in the first half and then skipper Ashfaq Ali cushioned the lead with a calm finish early in the second half. 

As for Albert Roca's men, they looked extremely vulnerable in the defence and the attack lacked sting. Sunil Chhetri was crowded out for most parts of this second half, as the Blues failed to overturn the deficit.

Half Time
