Indian Super League: NorthEast United, Jamshedpur involved in goalless draw

November 19, 2017

The goalless stalemate in the fourth edition of Indian Super League (ISL) continued for a second successive day as debutant Jamshedpur FC held NorthEast United FC to a 0-0 draw.

Jamshedpur FC coach Steve Coppell fielded both Sameehg Doutie and Trinidade Goncalves along with Izu Azuka as the lone striker upfront.

NorthEast United FC gaffer Joao Carlos Pires de Deus played Seminlen Doungel and Odair on the flanks with Marcinho playing just behind striker Danilo. Lalrindika Ralte played in the central midfield.

The home team was on the offensive from the word go and looked to build pressure in the opponent’s box. NorthEast started the second half with equal intensity and hunger. Odair came close to scoring in the 55th minute from a corner but Paul denied him.

In the next three minutes, Danilo found himself one on one with Paul following a through ball from Lalrindika Ralte, but his shot went wide. Then came the first red card of the season as Andrey Bikey, playing against his old club NorthEast United, was given the marching orders.

The NEUFC though could not make use of the numerical advantage. Four minutes were added to the regulation time and there as another good chance for NorthEast United as Nazray cut it back to Paez. No defender was marking him, but still Paez could not find the target.
