Referee Rahul Gupta, who notoriously showed three red cards to Mohun Bagan against Mumbai City, today gave various advantages to East Bengal that helped East Bengal earn 3 points.

East Bengal started well, and got an early lead. Soon after the goal, East Bengal players started hitting Mohun Bagan players, infact Cleiton , their Captain even hit the opponent’s head with his boot, intentionally.


He continued to hit MohunBagan players knowing very well that he has referee’s blessings.

MohunBagan got a second blow when Anwar Ali had to go out dur to muacle pull.

Mohun Bagan came back to the game after Sadiku equalized.


However in the second half Hamill was tackled.from behind, two times and any sane referee would have given marching order to the player, but ofcourse Rahul Gupta decided to settle for a booking instead.


Gupta gave a penalty in favour of East Bengal when Mahesh missed a flight acting that he was injured by Deepak. Cleiton , who should have got marching order , twice, converted it into a goal.

Rahul Guota decided to book all Bagan players, with some funny bookings. Sadiku was booked for frustration, but same frustration allowed Cleiton to be ignored as he was booked. finally.

Dimitri equalized soon.


After the same, Bagan was denied from Penalty , as Cleiton fouled Bose . A similar foul saw Penalty for East Bengal.

These Rahul Guptas, who carey forward the legacy of Dinesh Nairs are the reason why India has such poor FIFA ranking.
