FC Pune City began their home run in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2016 on Wednesday with NorthEast United the first of the visitors to Western part of the country. And that run didn’t get off to the best of starts with NEUFC winning the contest with a solitary goal in the 79th minute. The win took NEUFC to the top of the table with 9 points from 4 matches.
After a cagey first half and an equally well contested 34 minutes in the second part, Emiliano Alfaro used little space in the box to get a shot on that crept past the keeper. The game also saw two red cards – Nirmal Chhetri for NEUFC and Eduardo for Pune.
Pune continue their home stretch by playing Kerala Blasters (October 17) and Chennaiyin FC (October 23) next.
