East Bengal assured a 3-0 win against Pathachakra in their third match of the 2018 Calcutta Football League at the East Bengal ground on Tuesday. Jobby Justin (16′, 77′) and Laldanmawia Ralte (42′) scored to give the Kolkata giants a deserved win.
East Bengal dominated the ground right from the beginning of the match. The presence of two foreigners in the midfield gave the home side an advantage.
The attacking mindset of East Bengal yielded them their first goal of the match in the 16th minute and doubled their lead in the 42nd minute after Pathachakra’s Monotosh Chakladhar accidentally stopped Joby Justin’s goal-bound shot with his hand.
East Bengal continued to dominate the match after the restart. Amna, Brandon, Ralte and Justin kept the defenders on alert and sprayed passes in and around the opposition’s penalty box.
It was a convincing performance from the Red and Golds who desperately needed a win to shrug off the discontent of losing points in their last match.
