Beginning of the second half, Mehetab Hussain’s knee injury crumbled Shankarlal’s plans as he had to be replaced. It was sad for the Bagan side as they failed to hold up their lead.

Nevertheless, Bagan keeps up their streak of remaining unbeaten in their last seven encounters against East Bengal. Whereas its sad for the Red & Golds as their signing of world-class defender also could not rescue them from conceiving goals.
