The first half saw East Bengal establish their dominion as Justin scored inside the first two minutes to give the defending champions a one goal lead heading into half time. They could have got more goals if they were more ruthless in front of goal. A comprehensive and overall performance added by Suhair's dual brace in the second half help the Red and Gold army to seal a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Railway FC, on the other hand, will have work to do as they are yet to win a match in the league

That's all for today folks!!
