East Bengal finally get their Federation Cup campaign underway with a 2-0 win over Chennai City. The Red and Golds were lent a helping hand by Robin Singh, who netted a brace. A crucial win for East Bengal ahead of their key clash against Aizawl on Thursday.
89' Didika tries one from way out, but his shot goes high and wide. East Bengal are enjoying themselves on the pitch now. Should this 2-0 scoreline be the full-time result, Chennai City's Federation Cup hopes will rest on Churchill Brothers beating Aizawl later today.
65' Nandhakumar and Abhishek Das have worked a treat as a partnership down the right-hand side. Another piece of interplay between the two finds Das in a crossing position, but the ball goes out of play. The resulting corner is headed over the bar by Ravanan.
