Kingfisher East Bengal were held 1-1 by arch rivals Mcdowell Mohun Bagan in their 19th round I League clash at Vivekanand Yuba Bharati Krirangan, Kolkata today.
The first half was dominated by Mohun Bagan who put a lot of pressure on East Bengal's goal. It was an inspiring display by custodian Gurpreet that kept the Red and Golds in the game. James Moga put East Bengal ahead in the 39th minute when he scored with a smart header of a perfect Joaquim Abranches cross. Joaquim was the only player who shone for East Bengal.
Red and Golds however came back strongly in the second half but it was Bagan's turn to embrace the fortune when CS Sabeeth equalised of a Gurpreet howler.
Mohun Bagan started strongly with Pankaj Moula having an early attempt which narrowly missed the target. The Mariners played at a high tempo and their pressing didn’t allow East Bengal to settle.
The red-and-gold brige were giving the ball away too easily with their only real effort in the first quarter of the game being a harmless volley from Joaquim Abranches.
Mohun Bagan’s good start nearly paid off when derby debutant Christopher Chizoba played Sabeeth clean through on goal but the former India U-23 international’s effort was brilliantly saved by Gurpreet.
Chizoba and Katsumi Yusa continued to look dangerous for Mohun Bagan but the quality in their final ball was missing.
East Bengal didn’t even have a proper move from open play in the first half but won an indirect freekick inside the Mohun Bagan box when goalkeeper Shilton Paul handled a back pass. But Mehtab Hossain and Harmanjot Khabra completely wasted that opportunity.
The opening goal for Armando Colaco’s side came against the run of play as Abranches’ cross from the left flank was headed into the back of the net by Moga. It was a quality delivery from Abranches which missed Ryuji Sueoka’s head at the near post but slotted home by Moga from close range.
Mohun Bagan coach Karim Bencherifa brought on Shouvik Ghosh in place of Pritam Kotal at the start of the second half and Yusa went close for the green-and-maroon brigade a few minutes after the restart as his freekick was well saved by Gurpreet at his near post.
East Bengal finally took control of the game in the second half as they were keeping the ball a lot better and winning some 50-50 duels unlike the first period. But Colaco’s side didn’t create any clear cut chances and didn’t even seriously test Shilton from set-pieces including the long throws of Raju Gaikwad.
Mohun Bagan’s equaliser though came almost out of nothing as Gurpreet spilled substitute Manish Bhargav’s shot and Sabeeth had an easy finish from the rebound to make up for the first half miss.
The goal gave Bencherifa’s team momentum as they enjoyed a spell of pressure with Yusa producing a good save off Gurpreet and Echezona Anyichie missing the target from a free header after a well-worked short corner.
Colaco introduced Lalrindika Ralte late on but it was Abranches who created a goal-scoring opportunity in stoppage time. The former Dempo player dispossessed Echezona and played a teasing low cross into the six-yard box but the onrushing Sueoka could only put his effort over the bar.
With this draw East Bengal remain in the 8th position with 20 points from 14 matches.
KINGFISHER EAST BENGAL: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Harmanjot Singh Khabra, Arnab Mondal, Raju Gaikwad, Saumik Dey, S.Malsawmtluanga, Mehtab Hossein, Cavin Lobo (Lalrindika Ralte-80'), Joaquim Abranches, James Moga, Ryuji Sueoka

Kingfisher East Bengal lost to Dempo SC by 0-1 margin in the Airtel I League match played today evening at Fatorda Stadium, Goa.
Tolgay Ozbey headed in the the winner for Dempo SC in the 75th minute of play. Earlier in the 44th minute East Bengal were down to ten men as Gurwinder Singh was sent off by the referee Vishnu Chauhan which rather looked a bit harsh decision.
East Bengal called the shots at the start and controlled the proceedings amicably but the match then took a different course when Gurwinder was sent off for a foul on Haroon, reducing East Bengal’s dominance.
In the second session, Dempo took advantage of the numerical advantage and got the result they were looking for in the 75th minute when a fine cross from Clifford Miranda saw Tolgay jump high and nod home at the far post.
Beto of Dempo SC was adjudged Man of the Match.
KINGFISHER EAST BENGAL: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Harmanjyot Singh Khabra, Arnab Mondal, Gurwinder Singh, Saumik Dey, Shylo Malsawmtluanga (Raju Gaikwad), Mehtab Hossain, Cavin Lobo (Seminlen Doungel), Joaquim Abranches, Ryuji Sueoka, Edeh Chidi (James Moga)

Kingfisher East Bengal and Churchill Brothers played out a goalless draw in the Airtel I-League match at the Salt Lake Stadium on Tuesday evening.
In a game of very few chances, both sets of defences were on top as Churchill Brothers moved two points clear of rock-bottom Rangdajied United while East Bengal have now dropped 17 points after just 12 games.
Churchill Brothers started strongly with Anthony Wolfe going close twice in the opening ten minutes. East Bengal goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu had to be alert on both occasions to deny the Trinidad & Tobago international.
Gurpreet then did well to stop Balwant Singh’s powerful shot from 25 yards as the visitors continued to create pressure in the East Bengal half.
Midway through the first period the home team started getting into the game and their first real effort was a Lalrindika Ralte header from a Mehtab Hossain corner. Churchill Brothers custodian Lalit Thapa was kept busy from crosses but rarely threatened from open play.
Shylo Malswamtluanga tested Thapa from outside the box but East Bengal’s best chance of the half fell to Edeh Chidi who couldn’t hit the target after being played through by Malswamtluanga.
Both sides made early changes in the second half as Saran Singh replaced Alesh Sawant for Churchill Brothers while Armando Colaco introduced Harmanjot Khabra in place of Abhishek Das but it remained a tight contest with very few clear cut opportunities.
Churchill Brothers’ Costa Rican striker Cristian Lagos had the Goan club’s best chance of the second half when he had a free header from a Balwant Singh cross but the forward couldn’t hit the target.
East Bengal dominated possession in the second period and most of the play was in Churchill’s half in the final quarter of the game. But the Kolkata giants rarely got behind the back four of Churchill Brothers. And when they did create openings, either the first touch or final ball let them down.
Malswamtluanga and Chidi had a couple of half chances but neither seriously troubled Thapa, who was adjudged man of the match for his impressive handling and decision making while dealing with crosses.
Churchill goalkeeoer Lalit Thapa was adudged Man of the Match.
KINGFISHER EAST BENGAL: Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Abhisek Das (Harmanjyot Singh Khabra), Gurwinder Singh, Arnab Mondal, Robert Lalthlamuana, Shylo Malsawmtluanga, Mehtab Hossain, Ryuji Sueoka (Cavin Lobo), Lalrindika Ralte (Seminlen Doungel), Edeh Cjidi, James Moga

Lalrindika Ralte gave red & golds the lead in the 49th minute while James Moga scored in the 68th minute to double the lead.

Kingfisher East Bengal defeated Geylang International(Singapore) by 2-0 margin in their second match of IFA Shield played today at Yuba Bharati Krirangan.
Seminlen Doungel gave red & golds the lead in the 80th minute while Edeh Chidi scored in the injury time to make it 2-0 for the red & golds.
East Bengal dominated the proceedings in the first session and should have rapped up the game in this half itself. After the breather the visitors tried to come back in the match but a master stroke by Head Coach Armando Colaco bringing Semilen Doungel in place of S.Malsawmtluanga had instant effect.
Semilen Doungel trapped a pass from Subodh Kumar in the midfield and ran down the field hoodwinking a couple of rival defenders and scored with an angular shot. Len almost got his name in the scoresheet again when his header narrowly missed the mark.
Chidi Edeh made amends for his earlier lapses when he doubled the tally in the injury time off a pass from another sub Cavin Lobo. Raju Gaikwad, Arnab Mondal, Subodh Kumar (Kingfisher East Bengal) and Aliff Shafaein (Geylang) were booked in the match. With this win East Bengal now have four points from two matches to top Group I.

The opening session was dominated by the youthful Koreans who impressed with quick short passing and fast interchanging of positions. The Red and Golds only opportunity to equalise was wasted by Malsawmtluanga.
East Bengal came back strongly in the second half and dished out an attacking display.
