ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, SC East Bengal vs Hyderabad FC: Bright Enobakhare, Aridane Score as Match Ends 1-1

ISL 2020-21 Highlights, SC East Bengal vs Hyderabad FC: Points shared at the Tilak Maidan Stadium as Aridane Santana scored late to deny SC East Bengal all three points. After an evenly poised first half, SC East Bengal upped the ante in the second and got the lead in the match on the 59th minute after Bright was set free by Pilkington near the halfway line and the Nigerian forward made no mistake to run forward and put it past a helpless Hyderabad FC goalkeeper. Things were looking bright for the red-and-gold brigade but on the second minute of the added time Aridane Santana scored one of the easiest tap-ins to put Hyderabad FC on level terms. That was not the end of all the drama as Mohammed Yasir was shown a straight red in the dying minutes of the added time for a high boot on SCEB’s Angou. Indian Super League match number 91 was being played at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, Goa.


SC East Bengal, who have struggled for consistency so far in their maiden Indian Super League season, will face Hyderabad FC in a must-win game here on Friday. They’ve spent most of the season near the bottom of the table.

Despite that, it’s not all over for them, for a win against fourth-placed Hyderabad FC at the Tilak Maidan will take them to within four points of their opponents with three games left. SCEB have 16 points from 16 games.

They would still need favours from other teams to dent the chances of NorthEast United FC, Hyderabad and FC Goa — who are all tied on 23 points with 16 games played — but it is not out of the question.

They face ATK Mohun Bagan, NorthEast and wooden-spooners Odisha FC in their last three games. But for assistant coach Tony Grant, Friday’s test may be the toughest one yet.

“I rate them higher than most of the other clubs. They are better than the last two years and they got some good players. It’s going to be a tough game.

“They are few points ahead of us so they have got more to try and hold on to,” he added. But to get anything out of the match, SCEB will have to be at their best in the final third.

They have scored the lowest number of goals from open play (7) and talisman Bright Enobakhare has faded after a bright start. There is every chance the match will be decided in the second half — Hyderabad have scored 75 percent of their goals in the second half while SCEB have conceded 14 out of 21 goals in the same period.

East Bengal had their finest game against Jamshedpur FC with the entire squad putting on a good display. Grant maintained that he prefers to start with a similar eleven but wasn’t sure if that was the best 11.

“We can’t play the same 11. We played really well. We would like to play the same team but whether we have any knocks or inquiries, we will find out later,” Grant said.

Meanwhile, Hyderabad coach Manuel Marquez, who has just extended his contract with the team, knows that a win will be a giant step towards making the playoffs. His team is on an eight-match unbeaten run and will look to continue their good form.

“It’s a tough game. I think that they have changed a lot of players. But we will try to win,” he said. “(If) we win all the games, we will be in the top four. The end is close. We need to take it game by game and win points.”
