East Bengal through to Super Cup final after 1-0 win over FC Goa

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Bhubaneswar: Dudu Omegbemi struck the match's only goal as East Bengal recorded a 1-0 win over FC Goa to make the final of the inaugural Super Cup.

After a goalless first half, Nigerian striker Dudu broke the deadlock in 78th minute at the Kalinga Stadium.

East Bengal now await the winners of the second semi-final between Mohun Bagan and Bengaluru FC.

The Kolkata side's coach Khalid Jamil went in with a 4-5-1 combination with Dudu the lone striker upfront and Ugandan Khalid Aucho getting his first start in midfield.

FC Goa's coach Derick Pereira fielded a 4-4-2 with Manvir Singh partnering Spaniard Ferran Corominas (Coro) in attack. It was a scrappy first-half which ended goalless.

East Bengal had the better chances with Syrian midfielder Mahmoud Al Amna missing the first real chance in the 19th minute, when he failed to tap in a cross from inside the box by Japanese midfielder Katsumi Yusa.

Dudu broke free from an Al Amna flicked header a minute later but with just the Goa keeper Kattimani to beat, hit straight at him.

Katsumi then missed two gilt-edged chances between the 33rd and 35th minutes and Goa got their best chance through Coro in added time, when his solo run found him in front of East Bengal goalie Ubaid, but he could not convert.

The half was highlighted by as many as four bookings, equally shared by both sides. Seriton and Edu Bedia went into referee Santhosh Bhaskaran's book for Goa while Cavin Lobo and Gurwinder received yellow cards for East Bengal.
