But the young striker failed to impress in the match. He missed two easy chances to score from a very close position. Also towards the end of the match, Fran Sota missed an easy sitter. The SCEB defense had a very tough time keeping Diaz in check.

With this win, KBFC moved to the 3rd position while SCEB remains at the 10th position just above NEUFC. East Bengal will face Mumbai City FC in their next match on 22nd February.
