While Chennai's both goals were scored by the talismanic Brazilian Elano, Koke's strike for NorthEast was also out of the top drawer. With 11 points from six games, Chennaiyin remained in second spot while NorthEast remains on fourth spot.

It was the home team that surged ahead in the 25th minute when Elano met with a perfect header as Denson Devadas turned the provider overlapping from the left wing.

However the joy was shortlived as NorthEast youngster Semilen equalised in the 38th minute. The last 15 minutes of the second half witnessed couple of world-class goals from Elano and Koke.
