FT : EB 2-2 MPFC


15:57 (IST)30 JAN 2018

FULL TIME : East Bengal 2-2 Minerva Punjab

A tale of two halves as an ever dominant East Bengal side came back into the game and cancelled out the 0-2 lead. East Bengal had several chances to go ahead later in the match but failed to do so and would surely rue them. Minerva Punjab would certainly be the happier side as they eked out one points of the game and still sit comfortably at top.
