NorthEast were beginning to grow into the game but were NorthEast were beginning to grow into the game but were set back in the 34th minute when Mehrajuddin Wadoo produced a quality cross from the right on the overlap. Dudu got the better of his marker Didier Zokora at the near post to head Wadoos cross into the back of the net and make it 1-0 to Chennaiyin. NorthEast were not behind for too long though thanks to some individual brilliance by Velez. The Argentine picked up the ball a few yards from the penalty area in the 38th minute before running at Chennaiyin defence and finishing with aplomb past a helpless Karanjit to restore parity. Succi had a header on goal for the Chennaiyin two minutes later but Paul saved comfortably. The NorthEast custodian had no chance in first half stoppage time, however, when a low cross by Jerry Lalrinzuala from the left was expertly converted with an angled left-footed finish by Dudu at the near post to make it 2-1 for Chennaiyin at half-time. The visitors got back on level terms again six minutes into the second period when a half-clearance found its way to Velez on the edge of the box. Velez hit the ball first-time and beat Karanjit in goal to make it 2-2 and silence the home support. Both sides kept probing the opposition defences in search of the winner with the match becoming increasingly stretched as the second half wore on. NorthEast suffered a huge blow in terms of personnel in the 77th minute when Paul had to be replaced by T P Rehenesh in goal after picking up an injury. Things went further south for NorthEast four minutes later when Dudu completed his hat-trick to become the only player to score a hat-trick for two different teams. A low cross from the right by substitute Bernard Mendy was somehow bundled into goal by the Nigerian at the near post again, making it 3-2 with a little under 10 minutes of normal time remaining. Chennaiyins heartbreaking moment came at the fag end of the match with Shouvik Ghosh jumping highest to connect a Velez corner from the left into the net. PTI RE PDS PDSadvertisement
