East Bengal vs Mohammedan Sporting Match Report, Calcutta Football League 2018: East Bengal locked horns with Mohammedan Sporting in the Calcutta Football League game on Tuesday after losing their last encounter to Peerless. Earlier, it was Peerless who brought an end to East Bengal’s 17-games unbeaten streak. In order to maintain their second spot in the points table, it was important that the red and yellow brigade got off to a good start. It was Johny Acosta who provided East Bengal just that in the 12th-minute of the match.

The first half saw East Bengal show glimpses of improvement in their back line, something that looked out of place against Mohan Bagan and Peerless. East Bengal went into half-time with a lead of 1-0, thanks to Acosta’s 12th-minute strike after the Sporting goalkeeper stopped a header off a corner, it was on the rebound that Acosta found the back of the net.

In the dying moments of the match, the Mohammedan Sporting came back from behind o score two goals in extra time and win the match.

Finally, Acosta’s goal did not prove to be the difference as East Bengal had to settle for no points. Mohan Bagan is still at the numero uno spot in the points table with East Bengal and Peerless in the second and third spot. But this loss is bound to hurt East Bengal’s campaign in the league. East Bengal now needs to get back to the drawing board and reflect upon where they lost the plot. For starters, their backline let them down in the dying minutes of the game after they did a splendid job in the first half of the match.
