ISL 7: Luis Machado Steals Show As NorthEast, Bengaluru Split Points

Fatorda: NorthEast United held Bengaluru FC 2-2 and split points in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL-7) at the Fatorda Stadium here on Tuesday.

Gerard Nus’ men took an early lead through a fortuitous strike from Luis Machado (4’) but Bengaluru hit back through Juanan (13’) and substitute Udanta Singh (70’). Just as the Blues looked set for a win, Machado (78’) struck again to ensure his team got a share of the points.

NEUFC got off to the best possible start when they scored in just the fourth minute. Rochharzela cut into the box and unleashed a shot at goal. His strike struck his teammate Machado and Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu could only look on in despair as the ball looped in.

But rather than be pegged down by the early goal, Bengaluru responded with a flurry of attacks and eventually found their equaliser, NEUFC’s lead lasting just over ten minutes. A Rahul Bheke throw caused all sorts of chaos in the NEUFC box and it fell to Juanan, whose first-time shot found the net.

Bengaluru had a number of chances to take the lead in the first half and their coach Carles Cuadrat would have been rather displeased that they did not do so. Ashique Kuruniyan, in the 19th minute, fired wide after a terrific run.
