Hyderabad (Telangana) India – On Thursday, Sreenidi Deccan FC defeated TRAU FC 1-0 in their I-League 2022-23 match at the newly-inaugurated Deccan Arena in Hyderabad.The hosts took the lead in the 41st minute by playing David Castaneda Munoz, who eventually proved to be the difference between the two teams.The first half started slowly, with chances rare and far between.Both teams worked hard to create scoring opportunities, but neither team's defensive lines were sterile and solid in the 10th minute.Komron Tursunov's shot did not pose a serious challenge.TRAU's best chance of the season came in the 19th minute, when Salam Johnson Singh created it.The winger came into play from the right flank and fired in a shot that was saved by Aryan Lamba in goal for the home team.Gabriel had a great chance to put his team in front at the half-hour mark.The hosts found the net in the 41st minute thanks to Castaneda, who pacily beat his marker and only needed the keeper to beat in a 1-v-1 scenario. Two minutes after the break, the home team almost doubled their lead, with Gabriel in the thick of it once more.He approached the penalty area from the right side and fired his shot narrowly over the crossbar, stepping in from the right side.Faysal Shayesteh had a shy on-goal from a free-kick, but it lacked power and was easily recovered.The visitors continued to give away fouls in tense areas, encouraging Sreenidi to shoot from set pieces. As time passed, the despair levels for the Manipuri side increased, which was shown in the 77th minute.As they continued their hunt for the equalizer, Baoringdao Bodo, who was substituted, went into the referees book for mistakenly handling the ball to place it in the net from Buanthanglun Samte's cross.They were unable to make it to the playoffs because the game came to a close at 1-0, and Sreenidi Deccan FC made it two victories on the bounce from their defeat in the first round.TRAU FC, on the other hand, has lost their first game of the season.
