This has been an extremely entertaining match from Chennai, as FC Goa ran away with their first win of the season. That's all from us for this match, but do stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more updates from the Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai City FC game; you can watch it hereCiao!
...
Full Time! With that, we come to the end of the match, as the referee blows the whistle, signalling the end of the game. This was a cracker of a game. A game of two halves, to be honest.

Goa started the game with great impetus in the first half, scoring three  goals before the half-time break. However, Chennaiyin came in to the second half with a lot of questions for Goa, who, at some points, did not look like they had any answers for them. 

While Chennaiyin managed to get two goals back, the Gaurs held on for dear life in the end, and eked out the three points. This victory puts them on the top of the table for now.
...
90'+5 - Goa get a free kick inside the Chennai half, but they only manage to give it straight to Karanjit, who plays a long aerial ball to set Jeje through. However, the ball was too fast for the Mizo striker, as Kattimani smothered it.
...
90'+4 - A bit of panic in the Chennai defence, as the Goa attackers close them down. However, they managed to clear the danger.

...
84' - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!! Raphael puts Chennaiyin right back in the game! Kattimani made a movement towards his right, and Raphael calmly slotted the ball the other way. That was as calm as it could have gotten. We seem to be in for a frantic finish, here.
...
83' - PENALTY!  Jeje gets shoulder-barged by Kattimani in the box, and the referee immediately points to the spot!
...

70' - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!! Calderon pulls one back for Chennai from a freekick! The Spaniard hit a low shot straight at Goa keeper Kattimani, but fumbled the bouncing ball into the net. His coach surely wouldn't be too happy about that.

And we're back for the second half, as the teams come back out on the pitch.
...
Chennai legend Bernard Mendy came down to share his thoughts on the game. Here's what he said.

"It's a little bit scary. Goa are playing well and are controlling the ball. In the second half, there’s nothing to lose for Chennaiyin, so we should fight. This is home. I’m so happy to be here and see the fans. I played here for 3 years, and it's been fantastic."
...
Half Time! and with that, we come to the end of the first half. After two goalless games, we have had as many was 3 goals in the first half of this one. FC Goa have been simply unstoppable, especially on their counter attacks. One player, who has been central to their fortunes Brandon Fernandes. 
Chennai need to find their feet in the game soon, or this could turn into an ugly rout at the hands of Goa. Can they overcome this rut? or will Goa run aaway with the game? lets find out in the second half.
...
45 + 2' - Thoi Singh manages to float a cross into the Goa box, but Keeper Kattimani punches it away.
...
45' - Mihelic shows another flash of his brilliance, as he chips Jeje into space behind the Goa defence, inside the box. However, the chipped pass was a bit too far for the Mizo striker.
...
42' - Brandon smashes the resulting free-kick straight at goal, but Karanjit managed to tip it over the bar.
...
42' - More trouble for Chennai, as Brandon breaks down the left, with only the keeper in front of him. Karanjit rushes outside the box, but Brandon dribbles past him. However, seeing the danger Karanjit brings him down. Surprisingly, not even a yellow card was awarded for that.
...
39' - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a day Goa are having! Mandar Rao Desai puts them in a 3-0 lead! This too, came out of a counter attack, as Bruno played a fine through ball to set Mandar through in acres of space. Karnjit got a hand onto it, but was unable to thwart it. With this goal, Mandar Rao Desai becomes the first Indian to score a goal in ISL 2017!
...
37' - Corner! Karanjit seems to have recovered his composure, here, as he punches it away.
...
36' - Some comical bit of play by Dhana, here. In his attempt to not give away a throw, he plays the ball out for a corner to Goa. Wonder what was going on in his head.
