Derby Results And Miseries

East Bengal 1 - 0 Mohan Bagan (match abandoned)

The derby was on and with more than one lakh spectators gathered to watch the most hyped football game in India, Harmanjot Khabra headed a free kick form Mehtab Hossain into the post to give East Bengal a 1-0 lead.
Then the whole ground went mad as Odafa Onyeka Okolie picked up a needless red card from the match referee. Khabra won a free kick on a foul by Nirmal Chettri and then Odafa rose from nowhere, man-handling the referee. Odafa was given his marching orders but he refused to move, provoking another argument with the match officials.
More drama unfolded after the first half as Mohun Bagan decided against sending their team to the ground. Only the East Bengal players and the match referees were present on the field.
Misery: Tension was in the air and when the game neared the end of the first half, something from the stands, probably a stone, hit Syed Nabi on his head, at which point the real drama started. Nabi was bleeding badly and he was stretchered out by an ambulance

Manchester City 2 - 3 Manchester United

Two goals down to a first-half Wayne Rooney double, Manchester City thought they had snatched a point when Pablo Zabaleta followed up Yaya Toure's strike by driving home five minutes from time.
But after Rafael had been fouled on the edge of the area, Van Persie's free-kick flicked off Samir Nasri before cannoning in off the far post.
Misery: As United celebrated, an ugly scene developed as Rio Ferdinand was struck by an object which drew blood from a cut close to his eye.
