Aizawl Face Defeat In Their Fortress Against Lajong

Aizawl’s unbeaten run in the league came to an end as they lost 0-1 to their Northeast counterpart Shillong Lajong FC in the first Northeast Derby of the season. Aizawl managed to garner 25 points from the possible 27 points at home last season, but this defeat at home was not the result they were looking for this season’s beginning.

In a hard fought encounter, Lajong’s winger Redeem Tlang scored the only goal in the 60th minute of the game to which Aizawl couldn’t find a reply as Lajong secured their third win of the season.
