East Bengal are leading the group H table at 11 points at the end of 5 outings while the Salangor FC increased their tally to 5, required a win in their last match to stay in the tournament. A typhoon of 16 minutes change the story in favor of Salongor as the dejected red and gold had to surrender.
.East Bengal increased the lead within the 52th minute of the match but unable to grab opportunity as they were down to ten men. An Unnecessary tackle by Manandeep Singh to Assaruddin was adjudged dangerous and he was sent off by the Hongkong referee at the77th minute of the match. Salangor utilized the situation, and a sudden pressure in the East Bengal deep defense put Malaysians back in the game at the dying stages of the match.
The red and gold took the lead in the 22nd minute of the 1st half when Cheddi Eddeh received a deflection of a Salangor defender and passes it to Penn Orji who just pushes the ball beating the on rushing goalkeeper.

27.02.2013: EAST BENGAL 1-0 SELANGOR FC (YBK - FT..) :: REFRESH PAGE BY F5
KEB : Lalrin Dika 42' ::
JAYDIP DASGUPTA : East Bengal Club of Kolkata today edge past Selangor FC of Malaysia in the Group H league match of the AFC Cup by a margin of a solitary goal at kolkata. This is the 1st match of both the teams, as East Bengal registered their 1st victory in the Morgan era in their seventh participation in the AFC Cup.
"We were being killed by Dika and Sanju"- this was uttered by the dejected Selangor coach Irfan Bakti in the post match media meeting. Today the red and gold of Kolkata displayed a good example of team game right from the beginning. East Bengal played a number of passes in the midfield with Mehtab in the middle as Dika and Sanju utilizing both the wings. East Bengal could have scored a number of goals if they can utilize the easiest of the opportunities.
Barisic, Penn and Chedi missed open sitters from the hand shaking distances with only the Selangor goalkeeper Norazlan Bin Razali at their mercy. Chidi was unlucky in the 5th minute when his head hit the post from Mehtab Hossain's corner.
Andrew Barisik missed two easy chances-in the 12th minute when he failed to trap the ball in side the six yards which was cleared by the Malaysian defense. In another occasion his feeble grounder went straight to the Malaysian goalkeeper. Barisic could place the ball to the either side of Noralzin. In the 29th minute Penn Orji missed the easiest of the opportunity from the six yards When Eddeh Cheddi after dribble pass two defender passed to the unmarked Penn.
East Bengal shares maximum of the ball possession and it was observed that they had played a number of good passes, utilizing both the wings. Saumik and Khabra participated in the overlapping movements and increased the number of men in the middle third area. In the initial stages Dika was a bit defensive, but joined the attack there after and tried the long rangers from outside the 18 yards.
.. WHY Selangor's defender Ramez Dayoub not in the squad today? .............The Lebanese Football Federation today announced lifetime bans on Malaysian club Selangor's defender Ramez Dayoub along with ndonesian-based forward Mahmoud El-Ali. The Asian Football Confederation is investigating a report of match-fixing in Lebanon, where 24 players have been suspended over allegations in max fixing international and regional games. Lebanon lost 01 to Qater on 3rd June 2012 in word cup qualifier.
The Selangor officials claimed that they had received a letter from the AFC and from the Lebanese football Federation during just before the crucial AFC Cup match at Kolkata aganst East Bengal. While taking to the media Irfan Bakti the Selangor chief coach said though the news was shocking but the club will help Ramez Dayub to appeal to concerned authorities regaring the punishment.
Dayub has a contract of one year with Selangor which will end at November. The Selangor coach furthur added that their will have a transfer window at April and if required they can recruit a new player but everything will depend on the further decisions of the AFC.
Sources said that the two months investigation has found Ramez Dayub was guilty in match fixing and took money for fixing the international matches. The punishments leveled at the guilty parties were divided into four(1,2,3,4) categories, with the most serious sanction involving a lifetime ban from football in addition to a Dollar 15,000 fine. All accused players are barred from representing the national side for life. Ramez Dayoub and Mahmoud al-Ali who represent Selangor FA (Malaysia) and Persiba Balikpapan (Indonesia) to fall under category 1.
Meanwhile Ramez Dayub claimed that total investigation does not have any of match fixing and he wants FIFA to investigate the total incident.
In the 36th minute his left footer from outside the box was brilliantly saved by Norazlin.Dika scored the only goal in the 42nd minute when his left footer from 25 yards deeped in with the Malaysian goalkeeper had no answer to give.
Selangor usually depends on the counter attacks unable to create any danger to the rock solid East Bengal defense except in one occasion when Michal Kubala's shot was saved by Gurpit. In the second session also East Bengal continued to create pressure but failed to capitalize the opportunities. Barisic once again failed to push the ball in the open net from Cheddi's center instead he skied the ball wide.
Trevor James Morgan was satisfied with his team effort and described the win as disciplined performance.He further added that East Bengal has played as per the plan and he himself is pleased of having three points from the first AFC match
