The Highlanders beat East Bengal FC by a two goal margin.

Super Saturday unfolded a high voltage fixture on a cold evening in Guwahati as NorthEast United FC settled scores with East Bengal. The Highlanders put up a brilliant performance against their neighbors and clinched their third win of the campaign.

Juan Pedro Benali’s side got the perfect start, thanks to their latest import Tomi Juric. The 2015 Asian Champion opened the scoring in the fifth minute and gave his side an early lead. And moments later, Redeem Tlang set up Nestor Albiach for a second goal as NorthEast United went into the break with a 2-0 lead.

East Bengal came out all guns blazing as Nandha pulled one back in the 53rd minute before NorthEast United’s target man from down under scored one of the best goals in the league this season. Juric scored his second goal from outside the box and put his side 3-1 up.

Felicio Forbes made things more interesting and scored the second goal for East Bengal in the final few minutes of regulation time. East Bengal kept on trying, but NorthEast United managed to hold their nerves.

After the game, Tomi Juric spoke to Khel Now and shared his thoughts on the game. Here’s what he said:

It was very important for us to get the win this evening. Personally, I’m very happy and pleased to get my campaign off with a couple of goals.
