With today’s victory, East Bengal clinched the much-needed 3 points to climb to the top of CFL 2017 table on goal differences. EB established their dominion right from the start as they dictated the pace of the game. A wonderful header from Wilis Plaza gave the hosts a lead in the first half.
The second half was all about EB toying with the Tollygunge defense. A comprehensive and overall performance added by Willis Plaza’s hattrick helped seal a comfortable victory for the Red and Gold Brigade. The win will provide a much-needed confidence to the EB camp ahead of the mega Kolkata derby against arch-rivals Mohun Bagan on 24th September

Agragami, on the other hand, will have work to do as they go back and try to figure out what went wrong.
