After a goalless first half, plenty of drama unfolded in the second as three goals and a send-off were on exhibition. After NorthEast United went ahead in the 50th minute, Goa hit back with Robin in the 62nd. It was all square but a red card Sahil Tavora put the hosts under the pump with about 20 minutes still left. Both teams kept pressing forward but it was Goa who found the winner deep into the extra time period. Romeo beat the off-side trap and outsmarted the goalie to find the back of the net, and steal three points for 10-man Goa.
