Good Night.
...

90+4' GOAL

Sunil Chhetri , almost walks it into the net. The ball is heaved upfield , udanta is aware of it and gets a pass in to the left, before colliding with the keeper, where chhetri finds himself in acres of space and an empty goal in front of him. He allows the onrushing defender to make his slide and then calmly puts it past him into the goal, showing him calm head.
...
90+4 We are in the last minute of added time and chennai's chances look extremely bleak.
...
90+3' Chennai are desperate for the goal, butbengaluru are keeping them at bay. It's a goal- kick for gurpreet.
...
It's four minutes of extra time on the board and here's udanta with a beautiful floated ball from deep in his own half for chhetri, who has to chase it down.  He wins a corner , but nothing comes of it.
...
We are into the last minute of regulated time and Dimas is adjudged the hero of the match.
...
89' Chennai have an attack. The ball is flown in from the left. Gurpreet catches it easily and now it's chhetri on the counter. He shoots, but it's caught easily by the goalie again.
...
87' Udanta makes a beautiful run from the right , he puts in in for toni , who tries to put it through to the oncoming player . There's too much pace on it and the goalie can collect easily.
...
SUBSTITUTION(chennai): Thapa comes off for Germanpreet
...
SUBSTITUTION(bengaluru): Miku comes off for Garcia
...
85' Jude in the thick of things, gives away a foul in the bengaluru box.
...
82' SUBSTITUTION(chennai) : Nelson comes off for Nworuh
...
81' Chennai looking tired having to run the extra mile , owing to the vacant places left , playing with ten men. They seem to be readying a double change.
...
79' SUBSTITUTION(bengaluru): Paartalu comes off for Toni.
...
77' PENALTY SAVED : Gurpreet palms the ball away, as Jeje takes an uncharacteristically bad penalty. Chennai still a goal down , with a man less.
...
76'  PENALTY : The referee points to the spot as ganesh is brought down in the box by Khabra. Well then , can chennai get back in the game with this spot-kick?
 
...
75' SUBSTITUTION(bengaluru) : Boithang comes off for Kumar
...
73' Chennai are really showing severe signs of frustration. Ganesh, another chennai player on a yellow, makes a rash challenge, which the referee makes clear to him,  will definitely be his last , if he wants to stay on the pitch.
...
71' RED CARD : SERENO, the Chennaiyin FC captain, gets a second booking from the referee for pulling miku to the ground by the throat , in the middle of the pitch. This was definitely not what the doctor ordered for chennai.
...
69' A decent ball in by calderon on the right. It's finally dealt with by the bengaluru defence.
...
68' With a quarter of an hour to go, Sunil Chhetri gets a chance , but the chance is straight at the keeper.
...
It is to be seen how chennaiyin hit back from this setback. They should continue the way they were going and not let their shoulders drop.
...
63' GOOOAAAAAL !!!

A soft goal, some might say. Bengaluru get a free-kick, dimas floats it in. Chhetri puts it in from the left, Miku gladly accepts the gift as it comes rolling in front of him inches from the goal line. 
...
61' Foul by chhetri , deep in the Chennai half, portraying the growing frustration in the Bengaluru team.  
...
59' Bengaluru have a brief spell of continued possession for the first time, in this half. They earn a corner. It's dimas over the ball. 
...
57' It's all Chennai right now. Thapa with a corner. He takes it short , gets a return and puts a cross in to the far post. The ball goes out for another corner which is dealt with by bengaluru.
...
54' Chhetri loses the ball easily, and chennai counter. Boithang makes a clumsy challenge on the advancing thapa from the back and earns a yellow card. Bengaluru , now run the risk of playing with ten men if they continue like this.
...
52' Chennaiyin FC are very much on the offensive and Bengaluru are feeling the pressure, giving away cheap fouls. Dimas gets a booking for a foul on 
Nelson. 
...
50' Johnson simply goes through Nelson and gives a foul away. A short free-kick taken. Johnson makes a foul again and goes into the referee's book this time round.
...
49' Its Chennai on the front foot , in this half. The ball is sweeped in from the right by raphael but gurpreet pockets the ball. 
...
48' Gregory on the left with a darting run. He wins a corner for chennai, but nothing comes of it.
...
45' And we're off !!
...
And we're back with the second half of this eagerly awaited contest. The players are on the pitch, waiting for the Referee's whistle. The two teams remain unchanged. Let's see if there is any change in tactics.
...
A small sidenote, 
both the goals and their assists have been made by indian players. 
...
And there's the whistle. Bengaluru can't make much of the corner. Raphael seems to have a few things to say to dimas, as the players walk off  the pitch. 
So, all in al an extrmely entertaining half with it's highs and lows. Bengaluru out of the blocks early. Chennai , however, slowly but steadily growing into the game and equalizing . We can definitely expect a gritty, nail-biting second-half that will keep us on the edge of our seats.
...
45' A long throw into the box for bengaluru by subhasish, looking for paartalu. They get a corner. With one minute of added time on the board, they are looking to end on a high.

...
43' Ganesh enters the referee's books with a yellow card, due to a nasty-looking challenge. He flies in with both legs and takes the player completely off the ground.
...
42' Calderon fuming at the referee who ignored his claims of a foul.
...
41' Boithang takes a short corner for bengaluru , the ball is then floated in. But, Chennaiyin get a free-kick owing to the shoving going on in the box.
