FT: Chennaiyin FC 2-1 NorthEast United FC

21:32 (IST)22 JAN 2022

90+3' CFC holding fort hereAfter being put under immense pressure, CFC are being able to exploit NEUFC on the counter.

21:21 (IST)22 JAN 2022

90' Added Time: 7 MInutes

21:21 (IST)22 JAN 2022

89' What a save! Debjit Majumder has definitely redeemed himself here.

21:15 (IST)22 JAN 2022

84' Strong tackle. Mohd Sajid Dhot gets into the referee's book now.

21:15 (IST)22 JAN 2022

83' Close again. CFC are putting themselves under pressure here. A long throw-in comes inside the box from the left sideline and the CFC defenders fail to clear it. The ball comes out to Marcelo Pereira, who just looks to chip the keeper but the shot is a couple of inches too high.

21:15 (IST)22 JAN 2022

76' Unlucky! NEUFC come close to equalizing.

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

69' Another bookingAriel Borysiuk is the man who gets booked now. As Marco Sahanek makes a run through the middle of the pitch, Borysiuk pulls him back from behind and it is an easy decision for the referee to make. From the resulting set-piece, Hernan Santana goes for goal but hits it well over.

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

67' Just wideMarcelo Pereira has come in with a point to prove and has lifted NEUFC. He shows neat feet as he dances inside the box on the left side and wins a corner. The resulting set-piece is poor but Marcelo will have another go at it. This time a lovely ball is whipped in by that peach of a left boot and Suhair Vadakkepeedika leaps up for a glancing header which goes agonisingly past the far post.

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

64' Double changeNEUFC make a couple of more changes. Marcelo Pereira and Marco Sahanek are brought in for Laldanmawia Ralte and Sehnaj Singh. Can NEUFC do what CFC have done and come from behind to get a result?

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

60' Forced changeNEUFC are forced into making a change. Mirshad Michu had an injury scare after the first goal of this half and he has gone down once again. Unfortunately, he is stretchered off and in comes Subhasish Roy to replace him. NEUFC are really under pressure now.

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

58' GOOAALLL!!!CFC have turned it around! Mashoor Shereef fouls Anirudh Thapa on the left flank and CFC get the free kick. Vladimir Koman is standing over it and he goes for goal from a difficult angle. The ball is whipped in with pace, in a dangerous area and everybody, including the keeper, misses it. The ball ends up in the far post and it's 2-1 to CFC. In a space of 6 minutes, CFC have completed the comeback.

21:02 (IST)22 JAN 2022

56' Yellow cardSuhair Vadakkepeedika is shown the yellow card for dissent. Suhair and Jerry tussle for the ball around the sideline and the throw-in is awarded to CFC. Suhair lets his emotions fly and the referee tells him to calm down. He pleads his case but cannot escape the booking. The two coaches now get involved as well and the referee has to calm things down.

21:01 (IST)22 JAN 2022

52' GOOAALLL!!! Here comes the equalizer! CFC are on the attack on the right edge of the box and Rahim Ali just puts it into the path of Ariel Borysiuk. Borysiuk hits it first time but it is a really weak shot and is going straight to the keeper. Both Sehnaj Singh and Patrick Flottmann dangle a leg at it and in the end, the ball deflects off Singh's right boot and the keeper is left high and dry. A bit of luck for CFC and it's 1-1!

21:01 (IST)22 JAN 2022

49' Head injury. Rahim Ali goes down inside the box and the referee stops the play because he is hit on the head.

21:01 (IST)22 JAN 2022

46' Early chance. NEUFC start on the front foot here and Suhair Vadakkepeedika chests down a chipped ball really well. He shows great physicality to hold off his marker and play a cute ball into the path of Laldanmawia Ralte inside the box. Ralte looks to turn and shoot with his left but his effort is well blocked. NEUFC do get a corner but nothing comes off it.

21:01 (IST)22 JAN 2022

HALF TIME: Chennaiyin FC 0-1 NorthEast United

21:01 (IST)22 JAN 2022

45' Added Time: 2 Minutes.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

43' Yellow card. Needless from Vladimir Koman. The action is happening on the left side but Koman pushes Hernan Santana from behind in the midfield without any reason to known to us. The referee calls Koman for a chat and asks him to calm down first. Vladimir Koman though continues to chirp and gets booked eventually.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

41' Foul on KomanVladimir Koman has the ball at his feet and does plenty of twists and turns to frustrate Suhair Vadakkepeedika. Eventually, the NEUFC forward pulls his jersey from behind and brings him down.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

39' Momentum shift. One goal is enough to shift the momentum in favour of NEUFC. Yet another move develops after Suhair Vadakkepeedika is played the ball forward. He rushes inside the box, beats his marker and gets his shot away but it's from a narrow-angle and Debjit Majumder makes the stop.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

35' GOOAALLL!!! NEUFC have taken the lead! Well, it's a really scrappy goal and all the blame has to be directed towards the CFC keeper, Debjit Majumder. First, he came off his line when it wasn't necessary and that led to a cheap corner being given away. The corner is swung in towards the far post and Debjit just flaps it down back into the danger area. The ball ricochets off a CFC defender and Laldanmawia Ralte has the final touch. He will happily claim it and NEUFC go 1-0 up after being under pressure for most of the first half.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

32' Missed chance againRahim Ali has wasted a chance this time. CFC start brightly after the break but once again the finishing is not on the money from them. It's a nice loopy ball to beat the defender of NEUFC and Rahim Ali drives forward with the ball. He has more time than he realized as he takes the shot in a hurry and scuffs it.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

29' Golden chance missed!Laldanmawia Ralte once again wasted an opportunity. Imran Khan wins the ball on the left side and tries to serve it forward to find either Suhair Vadakkepeedika or Laldanmawia Ralte. The latter gets to it inside the box but kicks it wide of the mark.

21:00 (IST)22 JAN 2022

27' Danger averted. Excellent vision from Hernan Santana. He has the ball in the middle of the park and sends in a through ball for Suhair Vadakkepeedika who puts in a motivated run but before he can reach there, one of the CFC players chases it down and takes it away from Suhair at the edge of the box. Also, Debjit Majumder was off his line to make the clearance and had Suhair Vadakkepeedika reached the ball first, it would have been an embarrassing situation for CFC.

20:59 (IST)22 JAN 2022

26' Foul. Rahim Ali and Mashoor Shereef tussle for the ball, not for the first time this evening. The latter goes down in the process after kicking the ball and the referee calls for a foul.

20:59 (IST)22 JAN 2022

21' Lakra to the rescue. CFC come very close to opening their account. A nice loopy delivery from behind and it goes over the defensive line of NEUFC and finds Nerijus Valskis to perfection. The CFC forward tries to find Anirudh Thapa with his cross inside the box but Provat Lakra slides forward and deflects it out for a corner.

20:59 (IST)22 JAN 2022

19' Up and over. Yet another poor finish, this time by CFC. Anirudh Thapa does well to win the ball on the left wing and takes it at the edge of the box. He, then, watches the run of Ninthoinganba Meetel and passes it on in his path. Ninthoinganba though releases a poor kick and it goes way wide of the post.

20:59 (IST)22 JAN 2022

18' Possession game. CFC are seeing more of the ball and enjoying good possession. They have got one shot on target as well. NEUFC, on the flip side, started by attempting to play high-pressing football but they are now pushed back.arget as we

20:58 (IST)22 JAN 2022

13' Poor finishNEUFC show some spark, at last. They win the ball in the midfield and Laldanmawia Ralte is set free on the right-wing. He puts in a run, enters the box and then goes for the shot himself. It's a poor kick and goes well over the target. Suhair Vadakkepeedika had also made a run inside the box and Ralte should have looked for a better option.

20:58 (IST)22 JAN 2022

9' Finds the goalkeeperCFC continue to play some high-pressing football. They are easily winning the ball in the midfield as well. Anirudh Thapa gets hold of the ball on the right side and lays it off for Vladimir Koman who eases it in the path of Nerijus Valskis inside the box but his ferocious kick is nicely stopped by Mirshad Michu.

20:58 (IST)22 JAN 2022

8' Beautiful passing game!A nice passing game from CFC. They clinically pass it around in the left-wing and we see plenty of clean touches. The sequence though gets broken after a foul on Rahim Ali.

20:58 (IST)22 JAN 2022

3' Hits the wallAriel Borysiuk steps up to take the set-piece and goes full throttle. But his shot goes straight into the wall and then the NEUFC defense makes the clearance.

20:58 (IST)22 JAN 2022

2' Handball?An attack builds from the left side! Rahim Ali collects the ball from behind and rushes forward before attempting a cross inside the box for Nerijus Valskis. It's cleared out though. The loose ball rolls outside the box and Vladimir Koman attempts for a kick but Sehnaj Singh intercepts and it perhaps hits his hands. The referee spots and hands a free kick to CFC just outside the penalty area.
