FULL TIME Chennai City 2-1 East Bengal
...
90+2 GOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLL WOW WOW WOW WOW Prasanth puts Chennai ahead! This is brilliant and the home side are looking to be heading towards three points. East Bengal lose the ball and Chennai break on the counter, Charles gets a lot of space in the box and takes a shot. Rehenesh saves but Prasanth is there to slot it in and give his team a victory. 
...
Can East Bengal find a goal here? Chennai have played their hearts out here and probably deserve a draw but the away side will not settle without rattling them
...
Four Minutes of Added Time
...
89' CHANCE!!! East Bengal should have taken the lead there but Plaza misses a lovely chance. Jairu crosses the ball in and Plaza heads it wide. 
...
85' Trevor James Morgan is angry on the sideline and East Bengal are bottling up here. They have been profligate and quite indecisive in the final third. They are still pushing for the winner. 
...
82' CHENNAI CHENNAI CHENNAI! How have you not taken the lead here? Raegan gets one on one with the keeper and gets the poke past Rehenesh but it is a touch wide. Chennai have surprised everyone here 
...
80' We have seen some rather strange football in this game. After Robin Singh's tumble in the box, Mehtab takes a corner and the ball somehow does not go inside the goal
...
78' Rather bizarre substitution here from Morgan as he brings on Ruidas, who replaces Payne
...
74' East Bengal are now pushing the envelope but Robin Singh has been rather disappointing today. He gets a cross in the box but does not make anything out of it
...
71' VOLLEY FROM PAYNE AND IT GOES OVER! Bheke crosses it into the box and the Australian lets fly but it goes above the bar
...
70' A moment of aberration from Robin Singh there and he does something someone would not usually expect him to do. He flicks a ball and then bizarrely goes down. 
...
67' Ralte is taken off and East Bengal bring on Jairu. Trevor James Morgan needs to change something in his tactics to counter the momentum by Chennai
...
64' The response has to come from East Bengal here and Chennai are on the front foot. 
...
60' The game has sprung into life here and Chennai are now on the front foot, another attack from them and it is well defended Bukenya
...
58' East Bengal have made errors here and paid the price. Raegan gets on to the end of a poor clearance and then passes it to Nandha, who smashes it past Rehensh
...
58' GOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Chennai City find the equaliser 
...
55' A bit of helter-skelter this game is at the moment and needs something
...
53' Chennai trying to move forward and they manage to do on a rare occasion but nothing comes out of it. Charles tries to battle past a couple of defenders but to no avail. Rafique gets injured though. 
...
48' East Bengal start off the second match just like they did in the first half. Brilliant start
...
PEEPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
...
HALF TIME Chennai City 0-1 East Bengal
...
45' We are coming close to the end of the half here and you can clearly say that the scoreline reflects what has happened in the half. East Bengal are leading with that solitary goal from Plaza
...
44' Vinicius is taken off and Raegan is brought on by Chennai. Can they get a equaliser? 
...
42' GOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLL Plaza puts East Bengal ahead. This has been coming and East Bengal take a deserving lead. Rafique plays Bheke forward and the defender crosses on the overlap and Plaza thumps is past Karanjit with a lovely header. BOOM
...
42' CHANCE!! Rafique plays forward a lobbed pass and the cross is met by Robin who chests it down for Ralte but the Bengal player skies it over the goal after evading one defender. Should have done better 
...
40' You have to say that the pitch is rather poor and there are multiple patches of barren land with a lot of dust in them, which is certainly affecting the passing. 
...
38' Narayan Das tries to find Robin in the box with a good cross but Chennai are up to the task, defend well and Karanjit collects the ball to avert danger. Robin then misplaces a pass and Chennai gain possession
...
36' The quality of Wedson Anselme is clearly showing on East Bengal's performance, especially going forward. Though the build up has been good, his creativity adds another dimension to their attack. 
...
34' Chris Payne has looked really dangerous today in attack and he is someone the Chennai defence need to worry about. Ravanan has been pretty solid till now but he ll need to continue the same if Chennai are to get any points from this game
...
30' Half an hour gone here in the JLN Stadium and we are goalless. Chennai have managed to absorb the pressure from EB and have created chances of their own.
...
26' CROSSBAR!! East Bengal almost get the goal there. Payne moves forward and lays it up for Ralte who lets fly and hits the bar. Chennai survive
...
22' Halfway through the first period and we are still 0-0. Both teams have been quite even with Bengal enjoying more possession and certainly the better chances
...
17' Bengal are trying to find Robin Singh in the box via crosses but the tall forward has not received proper supply till now. He is an aerial threat for sure but will need some good crosses to have a chance of causing any damage
...
15' Chennai seem to be getting a grip on this game and they are looking quite good. Meanwhile, EB are forced to make a substitution as Poojari is injured and is taken off. Rafique comes on to replace the Bengal man
...
12' Chennai get a freekick in a good position after Raj is brought down by Bheke just outside the box but Ganesh's set piece is rather poor. 
...
11' Plaza goes down rather easily there inside the box and looks for a penalty but the referee is having none of it 
...
9' SAVED!! Rehenesh comes into the game pretty early and he makes a good save from a shot by Tank
...
7' If the opening minutes of this game is any indication then Chennai City will be looking to play on the break here for most of the match
...
5' Exciting start to the contest here in Chennai and it is the away side that has been looking to seize the initiative. A majority of possession with KEB and they are looking quite comfortable on the ball
