NEUFC’s evening started on a negative note as they lost Hernan Santana to injury during the warm-up. The first 30- minutes of the game did not have any clear scoring opportunities as both teams cancelled each other out.

Khassa Camara and Mathias Coureur came close to scoring as well but their attempts went wide respectively. To add insult to injury, Antonio Perosevic was shown a direct red card late in the game for barging into referee Rahul Kumar Gupta out of frustration.
