Rajasthan United controlled the midfield and had the better share of the possession for the major part of the first half. Wingers William Pauliankhum and C. Lalchungnunga created problems for the Bodoland defence. Bodoland defence led by Didwm Hazowary and experienced Rakesh Pradhan along  with Nigerian Anyichie Echezona resisted the Rajasthan attacks and denied them any clear cut chances. The best chance for RUFC came through a corner which their Captain, Hardik Bhatt could not convert from inside the six- yard box. Bodoland could not make much inroads going forward, but came to life in the closing stages of the half. They were the more dominant side and created the best chances of the half. Ansumana Kromah found space behind the defence and had to just beat the RUFC keeper, Sachin Jha, but the Liberian shot wide. Arjun Mardi came close to scoring twice for the home side. His right footed curler just whisked past the post and moments later his left footed shot beat the RUFC keeper but was denied by the post.


Rain started to pour down which made the conditions a bit tough for the players. RUFC started the second half with the same intensity as they did in the first half and found the breakthrough soon. They took the lead through William Pauliankhum in the 47th minute. Lalchungnunga, whose is on loan from Hyderabad FC released Richardson Denzel through the right wing and the Ghanaian found William on the far post who tapped to give RUFC the lead. Bodoland could have levelled soon through William Opoku but goalkeeper Sachin Jha made a point blank save to deny the local side. The match was suspended due to continuous rains in the 52nd minute. The game resumed after the break and the score remained the same until the full time whistle giving, the last year’s quarterfinalists RUFC a winning start to the campaign.
