0 - 0
Mohun Bagan
...
FULL TIME!!! East Bengal 0-0 Mohun Bagan
...
90+3' The ball is whipped in and who is there to clear? Ivan of course. 
...
90+3' Bagan get a throw in in the last minute of the game and Pritam's cross earns the away team a corner. Is there a twist in the tale?
...
90+1' KEB attack through a long ball but it is defended well by Eduardo and Co. Bagan come away and Balwant breaks, trying to find Duffy but Ivan is up to the task. He has been immense tonight. 
...
Three minutes of added time
...
90' CHANCE!!! Prabir earns Bagan a free kick and Pritam whips it in but Balwant's header is wide. Chance gone begging. 
...
89' We look to be heading towards a stalemate here in Siliguri, until a moment of brilliance or stupidity from either team
...
87' Prabir comes on for Norde. Have Bagan decided to settle for a point here? Looks like it.
...
86' Four minutes remaining in the game and both teams are keeping their shape really well here. Quite understandably so, given the fact that they have managed to hang on for almost the entire match. 
...
84' Norde is brought down on the edge of the box but referee lets the play run because possession is with Bagan. However, they cannot make anything out of it. 
...
82' KEB get a corner. Mehtab whips it in but the danger is averted by an alert Bagan defence and the rebound is cleared by Balwant. Bagan survive
...
80' Narayan Das has been stellar at left-back today, both in offense and defence. He would probably be Man of the Match for KEB. Really slow, the game's pace at the moment. 10 minutes remain in regular time
...
79' The pace of the game has slowed down tremendously and neither of the teams are pressing. Indicates how much they have had to give in today. Duffy is down and looks to be in pain. He gets a knock from Ivan, who is by no means a delicate structure. 
...
76' Balwant comes on for Jeje, who has not had a good game today. 
...
Judging by the way game is going, it looks like the game will end goalless barring a moment of brilliance or a lapse in concentration. 
...
75' The game into the last quarter of an hour here and Bagan win a corner after Duffy's shot is deflected. It comes to nothing as referee calls for a foul
...
73' Haokim comes on for Robin Singh

...
Under 20 minutes remaining in the game and we will surely see some substitutions within the next 10 minutes. 
...
71' CHANCE for Mohun Bagan as Katsumi gets a clear shot on goal but Ivan defends well and the ball goes out for a corner.
...
70' Mohun Bagan are looking under pressure here and they are handing back possession to KEB quite easily. Narayan Das whips in another top class cross but it is not met with a header. 
...
67' Mohun Bagan get a chance to counter but Mehtab intervenes illegally and takes one for the team. YELLOW card for Mehtab
...
65' Robin gets a free header from the corner but puts it wide! Should have done better there. 
...
65' East Bengal have now stepped up the ante here in Siliguri and are controlling the game in all parts of the field. Bagan do not seem to have control in midfield like they did in the first half and the spaces are there for KEB to exploit. 
...
63' Another attack by KEB as Plaza plays a cross to Anselme and he evades a defender to get a shot across but Souvik is present to bail Mohun Bagan out of danger. Souvik has been excellent today. 
...
61' Ivan has been rock solid for KEB in defence and he has been immense in averting any danger whatsoever. 
...
60' The long ball formula seems to be working for KEB in the early stages of the second half and they are staying put. Mohun Bagan need to respond here as they seem to have handed the momentum to KEB.
...
57' WHAT A SAVE by Majumder! Long ball played forward and headed on by Robin Singh, Plaza capitalises on an error from Eduardo but his shot is saved by the Bagan goalie. Best chance of the game so far. 
...
54' An excellent move by Mohun Bagan there as the long ball from the back is brought down well by Duffy and it eventually is passed to Norde, who shimmies past a couple of defenders but cannot get a proper shot. Bagan looking good here. 
...
52' It is Mohun Bagan's turn to enjoy some possession and attack. Pritam puts in a cross trying to find Duffy but KEB defend well and they attack on the counter. However, Plaza's first touch lets him down and Bagan get a goal kick. 
...
50' Nikhil puts in a ball from the wing in an attempt to find Robin but Majumder catches it well. However, the Bagan keeper gets injured in the process. 
...
49' A passage of possession from KEB and the home team finally playing some passes in the midfield. This is something James Trevor Morgan would have told them during the half time talk. 
...
47' KEB get us underway and yet again, try to play a long ball but the Bagan defence are up to it and the clearance puts Katsumi free on the wing. The counter is then well defended by KEB. 
...
PEEEEPPPPPP! We are underway!
...
The players are back on the field and we are ready to go for the second half. 
...
We have seen everything in the first half apart from a goal. Mohun Bagan have enjoyed the better of the exchanges and have certainly dominated KEB in every aspect. The pairing of Eduardo and Anas have been rock solid, not letting Plaza and Robin Singh get away with anything. Katsumi and Souvik have been excellent as well, creating multiple chances. Will we see a change in tactics in the second half from KEB? Let's see
...
HALF TIME East Bengal 0-0 Mohun Bagan 
...
HALF TIME - The first half comes to an end and Mohun Bagan will be disappointed not taking the lead. Chances on both sides but Mohun Bagan clearly the better side. 
...
Two minutes of added time here in the first half and we are still goalless
...
44' Ralte is booked by the referee for his push on Duffy
...
44' ALMOST!!! Bagan nearly score there as Souvik has a clear shot on goal but it is saved by Rehenesh. We see a mini brawl after that as Katsumi gets involved in a fight with Ralte.
