NorthEast made sure that they stick to their game plan and came out with the result. They patiently kept out the dangerous Delhi attackers and hit them in the second half whenever they got the chance. A clean sheet would have helped their goal difference though.
It is now down to NorthEast’s final league game against Kerala Blasters. A win for them would mean that the last semi final spot is theirs while anything less would mean that things stand the way they were and Kerala will be through.
