MATCH 1: NORTHEAST UNITED VS KERALA BLASTERS
NorthEast United played Kerala Blasters in the opening game of the third season of Indian Super League. After a wonderfully entertaining opening ceremony of the ISL 2016, the two teams took up ground at Guwahati. The game stayed pretty much even upto the first half with no team seeming to be the favorite. Both teams lacked the initiative to attack the opponents and played the defensive game.
Katsumi Yusa scored the first goal
Nicolos Velez created chances for NorthEast United, while Katsumi Yusa used it well to score the first goal of the opening game of 2016 season. Overall the game seemed dull with both teams hardly being able to create scoring chances. Fans will be hoping for more excitement and aggressive approach in the upcoming games.
