WE LOOK back at the good and the not so good aspects of the tournament so far in the third edition of Indian Super League.
NEUFC's second defeat in a row took away their chance of regaining the top spot in the table. ATK gladly took that opportunity and go number 1 in the points table.
WE preview the tonight's clash between Northeast United and Atletico de Kolkata and later also touch upon the matches that will take place over the weekend.
ATLETICO DE KOLKATA came back from behind to defeat NorthEast United in their own home ground and ascend to the top of the ISL points table.
NorthEast United have now lost the 2 games in the season and seemed to have fatigue showing in their side today. Chennaiyin did well to wait for the best chance and took it is a great way by Succi scoring one of the goals of the season.
An action-packed weekend in the ISL saw goals and controversies, especially surrounding the referee in the game between ATK and FC Goa.
A GRITTY GOAL from Emiliano Alfaro cancelled out a fantastic finish from Kean Lewis as Delhi Dynamos and NorthEast United finished 1-1 level tonight.
NorthEast sitting on the table top will want to extend that lead. The Lions playing their first home game are undefeated in their 2 games, would look to stay unbeaten.
A LATE GOAL from Emiliano Alfaro was enough to seal the deal for NorthEast United against Pune City in a dramatic and controversial match that saw both the teams finish the game with 10 men.

The #Highlanders absolutely flayed Durban based side #CherriansFC on an extremely cold, chilly and rainy night at the People's Park stadia yesterday. This was the 4th pre-season game played by #NEUFC. #NicolasVelez scored two to add to his fearsome reputation, while #FrancisDadzie also added to his tally. The prodigal #AlenDeory scored a sublime goal while Boithang Haokip opened his account on this pre-season tour. Mid-field combatant #KondwaniMtonga also guided a header home to add gloss to a comprehensive rout on the night. What a utterly irrepressible performance! #NEUFC #PowerOf8 #8States1United #Preseason #Durban
