Aizawl can't wait for Sunday's Northeast Derby

Albino Gomes and Zohmingliana Ralte were the pillars of Aizawl's tactics against Mohun Bagan on Saturday.

Aizawl are within delicious distance of the I-League title, a single point required against Shillong Lajong next Sunday in what will be called the Northeast Derby. Every curve on their road this season is marked by stuff-of-dreams details but it is their football that has taken them this far. By keeping their defence tight for the best part of 90 minutes and then moving in for the sucker punch, a solitary goal with the opposition knocked sideways.

In the last home game on Saturday, the two men who...

I-League: EB beat Minerva, Lajong earn a late point

After four successive defeats East Bengal return to winning ways.


East Bengal returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Minerva Punjab in the penultimate round of the I-League in Barasat.

Wedson Anselme (31st), Robin Singh (52nd minute via a penalty) and substitute Bikash Jairu (90th) were the scorers for East Bengal, who had slipped out of I-League title contention after a four-match losing streak under coach Trevor Morgan.

East Bengal, however, failed to keep a clean sheet as Krishna Pandit struck deep into injury time.

Job almost done, Aizawl cautiously prepares for Shillong party

Several Aizawl fans have already started saving up to travel to Shillong next week

What did Aizawl and the large cast of Aizawl FC do on the night they knocked Mohun Bagan off the top of the I-League ladder? If there are any imaginings of drunken celebrations across town with packs of chanting fans staggering down the road waving flags, think again.

This is Mizoram. They are not given to being outrageous in public. Except when playing football. Aizawl "expressed" themselves in every muscular tackle and eyeball to eyeball contest against their celebrated rivals. At the half-time...

Where was this Bengaluru FC all along?

Sunil Chhetri scored two goals and assisted in four others

On Saturday, defending champions Bengaluru FC romped to a 7-0 win against a very good DSK Shivajians side, which came to Bengaluru on the back of a 1-0 win away to East Bengal, which was title-defining for the latter. It also helped Bengaluru go top of the charts for goals scored, with East Bengal's 26 one behind Bengaluru with a game in hand. The impact this result goes beyond the scoreline as it showed that BFC on the mend.

Chhetri was the star of the show

Sunil Chhetri came into this match with...

The numbers that put Aizawl on the brink of history

Aizawl FC will no doubt be boosted by their away win record as well as the number of goals struck in those games.
Aizawl FC will no doubt be boosted by their away win record as well as the number of goals struck in those games.

So it comes down to next Sunday's matches, with Aizawl FC needing a draw at Shillong Lajong to seal the 2017 I-League title and Mohun Bagan needing to beat Chennai City FC at home and also hoping for Aizawl to lose. There's no way of predicting what could happen but we look at some key numbers that could boost Aizawl's confidence further - or give Mohun Bagan some straws to clutch at.
