PANAJI, DEC 8 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 12/8/2020 1:13:48 PM IST

Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United shared spoils in an exciting 2-2 Indian Super League (ISL) clash on Tuesday at the Fatorda Stadium, Goa.

Luis Machado (4’, 78’) scored a brace for the Highlanders while Juanan Gonzalez (13’) and Udanta Singh (70’) netted for the Blues. Gerard Nus made four changes to the NorthEast lineup which defeated East Bengal 2-0 in their last match. Dylan Fox, Lalrempuia Fanai, VP Suhar and Roccharzela replaced Mashoor Shereef, Lalengmawia, Ninthoinganba Meetei and Idrissa Sylla.
Carles Cuadrat, on the other hand, decided not to make any change in the Bengaluru lineup that defeated Chennaiyin in their last game. NorthEast United took an early lead courtesy a brilliant move which was initiated by Luis Machado who found VP Suhair on the right flank with a long ball. Suhair did well to go past Ashique Kuruniyan before forwarding the ball to Rochharzela inside the box, who cut into the centre and took a shot. The ball was deflected off Machado’s chest on its way into the net. 
Bengaluru restored parity in an unusual manner in the 13th minute. A long throw-in from Rahul Bheke came off Dylan Fox’s chest and Juanan slotted the ball in at the end of a melee inside the box. 
Harmanjot Khabra should have handed Bengaluru the lead after he received a cross from Kuruniyan inside the box. The right-back was unmarked and had a clear sight of the goal but he took a touch, attempted the shot with his weaker foot and the ball went out. It was end-to-end action in the first half with both teams creating chances to score.
