This game truly belongs to Suhair. 

A beast of a performance. And three goals to show for his efforts.


16:59 (IST)12 AUG 2017

However, for East Bengal they vouch for perfection. And the goal they conceded will not make Khalid Jamil happy.

16:59 (IST)12 AUG 2017


What a great start from East Bengal. They had drew with Rainbow in a pre season game. 

But they delivered when it mattered.

16:57 (IST)12 AUG 2017

90+2' - Al Amna with a great run but his lack of pace sees the Rainbow defence recover and he getd shrugged off the ball.

16:56 (IST)12 AUG 2017

90+1' - Bernard with an attempt from some way out from a free kick. 

But straight at the wall.

16:55 (IST)12 AUG 2017

Three minuted of added time.

16:55 (IST)12 AUG 2017

90' - Another through ball. But Ankur Das sharp as ever gets to it before Surabuddin.

16:54 (IST)12 AUG 2017

86' - SAVED!

Lobo with another shot from way out. But Ankur Das with an easy save.

16:50 (IST)12 AUG 2017


Surabuddin hits the post. Great work from Lobo on the right. A low cross into the box but his first time attempt goes off the far post.

16:49 (IST)12 AUG 2017

The flairs are out. The crackers are bursting. A day to celebrate for the East Bengal fans. 

16:48 (IST)12 AUG 2017

83' - Surabuddin really looking for his first goal of the season.

But he can't keep his head and is offside.

16:47 (IST)12 AUG 2017

82' - Rainbow still looking for more. 

A good through ball. But Chullova is ther to chest it back to Barreto.

16:46 (IST)12 AUG 2017

81' - The muddy surface finally has a say. Surabuddin with a shot but he loses his balance. 

Wide of the mark.

16:45 (IST)12 AUG 2017

80' - Surabuddin with some good work down the right. Gets the ball in but that is headed away.

16:44 (IST)12 AUG 2017


Chotu Mondal kept on running and caught the EB defence napping. 

Rounded off Barreto and slots into the goal. 


16:42 (IST)12 AUG 2017

Brandon now with his first ever goal for East Bengal. Great first touch on the left side of the box. 

He keeps his calm then slots itno the far corner.

16:37 (IST)12 AUG 2017

72' - The pace of the game has slowed down.

A long ball from the back. But that is too much.

16:35 (IST)12 AUG 2017

71' - Rainbow still looking for a break. They should hold their heads high after this game.

16:34 (IST)12 AUG 2017

69' - Bad execution of the corner. And Rainbow have the ball back.

16:33 (IST)12 AUG 2017

68' - WHAT A SAVE!

64'- Great cross from Mawia.

Could have been dangerous. But chested back to the keeper.

16:27 (IST)12 AUG 2017

Good first touch and a great ball in Mawia but that is headed away.

Ball played in again but that gone off for a corner.

16:22 (IST)12 AUG 2017

56' - Play halted again and now this time it is VP Suhair who has gone down with some cramps.

16:20 (IST)12 AUG 2017

16:16 (IST)12 AUG 2017

52' - Third shot in the space of three minutes but Bernard is really not testing Luis Barreto that Rainbow would want to.

16:15 (IST)12 AUG 2017


He is wasting no time to shoot it at goal. On the mark this time but Barreto saves it with ease.

16:14 (IST)12 AUG 2017

50' - SHOT!

Bernard with another long ranger and again off the mark.

16:13 (IST)12 AUG 2017

16:12 (IST)12 AUG 2017


Arnab Mondal, the skipper this time leads from the front and hits a timely tackle on Bernard who looked to get up from the left.

16:11 (IST)12 AUG 2017


Not even a minute gone and Suhair strike again. A hat-trick in the first game of the season. 

Great take down and then dinks it over the keeper. Cool and composed and a terrific performance.

16:09 (IST)12 AUG 2017

And we are now off for the second half.

15:55 (IST)12 AUG 2017


The referee blows for half time. And East Bengal go into the half with a two-goal lead.

45+1' - Rainbow look to threaten and they are not going to bow down.

Down the left and Bernard with the shot finally. But that is over the mark.

15:50 (IST)12 AUG 2017


Mawia gets at the end of another diagonal and gets the ball into the middle. A great first touch and turn from Suhair and he thrashes that past the keeper and into the net with his shot on his left foot.

15:50 (IST)12 AUG 2017

43' -  Samad Ali Mallick down on the field and the play is interrupted!

15:47 (IST)12 AUG 2017

41' -  Al Amna with the ball into the box. At the back post and as expected Willis Plaza gets his head to the ball.

But his flick misses the far post.
