...
81' Chennai City have some sterile possession, but have not been able to penetrate the defence of Gurwinder Singh and Ivan Bukenya. 

...
In the other game, Bengaluru FC are down 2 goals down to one, last ten minutes there, open an extra tab to read the last few minutes of the game. Read it here.

...
65' Chance for East Bengal to finish things off, the ball is played to Willis Plaza who is one on one with Aniyichie with Robin Singh beside him, tries a Cruyff turn, and loses the ball.

Half Time - We are level!
...
43' WOWOWOW! Brilliant play down the left from Wedson as he goes past two, he cuts back for Willis Plaza, who instead of shooting first time takes a touch and slips. CHANCE

...
26' Wedson with some lovely ball control, he juggles to shoot, but easy again for Abhra Mondal.
