U13 League: FC Madras upset Chennayin FC

NEW DELHI, India: FC Madras defeated Chennaiyin FC Under-13 1-0 in a 2018-19 Sub-Junior League Chennai Zone away fixture at the FC Madras Arena here on Thursday.

Surendran ST scored the all-important goal for Madras as CFCs' tasted their first defeat after having won the opening three matches without conceding a goal. It was also their first-ever defeat in the Chennai zone after eleven consecutive wins across both campaigns, having qualified for the final round with a 100 per cent record in their debut season last year.

The CFC, who thrashed Great Goals 11-0 in the reverse fixture in their opening game last month, will be aiming to get back to winning ways against them on Sunday.

FC Madras began the brighter of the two sides, pressing high up the pitch and forcing CFC into misplacing a few passes. Few chances fell the way of the hosts as a result but Chennaiyin defended resolutely. From a corner kick, FC Madras came close but for Mohammed Irfan, who cleared it off the goal-line.
