A big win for Chennaiyin FC

Chennaiyin FC outclassed NorthEast United FC 2-0 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Thursday to move closer to the play-off places in the Indian Super League. After an action-packed but goalless first half, Rafael Crivellaro’s wonder goal (57’) gave Chennaiyin the lead. Nerijus Valskis’s eighth goal of the season sealed the deal for the home side. The victory sees CFC rise to sixth on the table and stay in the hunt for a spot in the top-four. NorthEast, meanwhile, remains in the ninth spot and is now winless in seven games.
