Davide Succi’s thunderous volley was something that NorthEast could never come back from. The home side did attack but Chennaiyin’s defence, led by Bernard Mendy, was more than up for the task. Chennaiyin now
Chennaiyin now seem to be on a good run. After a rather slow start in which they were held to a 1-1 draw against Atletico de Kolkata and then slipped to a 1-3 defeat at home against Delhi Dynamos, Chennaiyin defeated the beleaguered FC Goa 2-0 and have now followed it up with a rather unexpected victory at NorthEast United’s stomping ground.
For NorthEast its back to the drawing board and there may not be any alarm bells ringing yet, manager Nelo Vingada will be hoping that they don’t throw off the good start they have got with performances like these.
