NOE vs SHL Match Preview
NorthEast United got the taste of their own medicine while facing Jamshedpur FC in their Kalinga Super Cup 2024 by losing 2-1 in the same way they defeated the Men of Steels in the ISL encounter this season. Despite taking the lead in the first half through Nestor Albiach, the Highlanders failed to add to their tally in the first non-ISL meeting between the sides and got punished for it. Jamshedpur FC made a turnaround in the second half by winning it late leaving Juan Pedro Benali’s side grasping for a win in the second game to stay in the competition. They will face familiar opposition from the northeast in Shillong Lajong whom they thrashed 4-0 in the Durand Cup meeting last year. A similar outcome will bring confidence inside the team ahead of a huge battle against the leaders Kerala Blasters, who are expected to win against Jamshedpur FC, in the final group game.
Shillong Lajong expected a tough beginning to their Kalinga Super Cup 2024 campaign with the 3-1 defeat to Kerala Blasters putting them on the back foot early. The ISL leaders were a level up the I-League outfit in every department in the game. Despite pulling a goal back while 2-0 down from a Renan Paulino spot-kick, the comeback was quashed by an early second-half goal from the Tuskers to settle the tie. The path does not get easier for Lajong as they face another top ISL team NorthEast United whose star boy Parthib Gogoi scored a splendid hat-trick against them in the last meeting. Bobby Nongbet will be worried about his side’s defence that has conceded three goals in three of the last four games in all competitions, a repetition might force an early exit from the competition.
