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.

That's it from us here at Sportskeeda. This is Sayak Signing off.

HALF TIME : East Bengal 0-2 Minerva Punjab

Defensive Lapses at the back by the Red and Golds sees the visitors lead the game at the break through Chencho Gyeltshen and Sukhdev Singh. East Bengal got several chances to get one goal back in the dying moments of the first half but the resilient Minerva defence saw them off. A controversial call by the referee at the stroke of half time to deny East Bengal a penalty is the talk of the first half so far.
