Guwahati, Feb 26:
Chennayin FC drew 2-2 with NorthEast United FC here on Tuesday to end their league engagements on the fourth spot and will now take FC Goa in the play-offs of the Indian Super League.
Masih Saighani fired Chennaiyin into the lead (17th minute) before two goals in either half by Martin Chaves (43rd, 71st) seemed to have handed all three points for NorthEast United. But a late equaliser from Lallianzuala Chhangte (90+3rd) ensured the away side took a point.
NorthEast finished their season on the ninth spot with 14 points.
Chennaiyin, on the other hand, finished fourth with 29 points and will now take on FC Goa in the play-offs. The other play-off will feature Bengaluru FC and ATK.
With not much riding on this game, both the teams made big changes to their starting XI’s with as many as 19 Indian players involved.
While Masih Saighani was the only overseas player for Chennaiyin FC, Martin Chaves and Jose Leudo were the foreigners for the home side.
