Four minutes later, Allosius scored another goal to strengthen Rajasthan United's position.
Manjhi got the chance to hit a goal in Churchill Brothers' goal area. This time, Allosius scored the goal with the help of Pritam Singh. In the second half, the Churchill Brothers tried their best to fill the gap, but they did not succeed due to poor play.
