Player ratings—SC East Bengal vs Chennaiyin FC

- Sponsored content -

Csaba Laszlo’s men seemed to have sealed the game but SC East Bengal’s Matti Steinmann had other plans. In a nail-biting thriller at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, SC East Bengal held a 2-2 draw against Chennaiyin FC thanks to the brace from their German midfielder.

The Marina Machans took an early lead when Lallianzuala Chhangte beautifully nutmegged Debjit Majumdar to find a way to the back of the nets. The assist came from Jakub Sylvestr. The first half seemed quite calm except this event. Robbie Fowler made 2 changes during the half time and East Bengal slowly seemed to have gained the pace.

At the 59th minute, 25-year-old German midfielder Matti Steinmann equalised the scoreline with a precisely guided header towards the far left post, leaving Vishal Kaith clueless. Within 5 minutes Chennaiyin regained their lead when a right footed strike from Rahim Ali edged past Debjit to the centre of the goalpost. Exactly 4 minutes later, Matti Steinmann again took a close shot on the bottom right corner, that made the scores all squares again.
