A highly anticipated fixture that never disappoints showcased a 6 goal thriller between Northeast United and Chennaiyin as the end of 90 minutes saw both sides share a point each with an exciting 3-3 draw.

It took just 8 minutes for the Marina Machans to break the deadlock. Jakub Sylvestr’s pass found Chhangte and the Indian international fired in a shot past Subhasish to give his side an early lead.

The Highlanders did not hold back for too long and brought things back on level terms within 6 minutes. Machado’s left footed cross found Imran who bravely headed it past Vishal in the blink of an eye.

Northeast United started a move from a throw in and Khassa Camara’s extraordinary pass found Machado who was through on goal but Vishal Kaith came at rescue for his side to deny him. Manuel Lanzarote on the other end forced Subhasish to make an important save from distance.

Khalid Jamil’s men wanted more. Vishal Kaith was brought into action by Luis Machado and the keeper did well to save his effort but the rebound found Deshorn Brown but Vishal Kaith made up for his mistake by saving Brown’s effort.

Subhasish Roy Chowdhury got very lucky after he made a mistake that could have costed them heavily. He failed to collect the ball but fortunately for Northeast, the ball found Provat Lakra after hitting the woodwork.
