With this game, I-League returned to the Cooperage after three years.
In the previous match between the two sides, Arrows had got better of East Bengal 1-0.
Both the teams started in an aggressive manner and East Bengal took the lead in the fifth minute, as striker Colado slotted home.

He took a long shot and slotted it to the left-corner of the goal to take East Bengal 1-0 ahead.
Arrows had a chance to equalize in the eight minute but East Bengal managed to keep their lead.
In the 25th minute, Arrows earned a free-kick as Givson Singh was fouled by an opposite defender, but Ayush Adhikari's set-piece was saved by East Bengal goalkeeper.
Arrows skipper Vikram Pratap Singh shot on a loose ball after a corner in the 34th minute sailed above the bar.
Chances kept coming in for both the sides, but at the half-way mark, East Bengal was 1-0 ahead.
After change of ends, in the 46th minute, Arrows earned a penalty kick and had the best chance to draw parity.
However, Vikram Pratap Singh failed to equalize as his shot went to the left of the goalkeeper.
The teenager then made up for his mistake as he equalized for his team.
The winger made a run from the left-flank and stormed into the box, dribbled past the defender and then calmly slotted home to level the scores.
However, Arrows' joy was short-lived as eight minutes later Akhtar took Bengal 2-1 ahead with his goal.
Akhtar made a prompt finish as he punched in on a deflected header.
And then Ralte, who nodded a corner into the goal, sealed the victory for his team.Find latest and upcoming tech gadgets online on Tech2 Gadgets. Get technology news, gadgets reviews & ratings. Popular gadgets including laptop, tablet and mobile specifications, features, prices, comparison.
