GOA vs MUM Match Result -
0 - 1
Mumbai City
6' Rafael Bastos
It will be Bengaluru v Goa in the ISL Final this Sunday.
Not that surprising given that Goa were 5-1 winners in the first leg against Mumbai.
Rafael Bastos made the aggregate 5-2 but Mumbai couldn't do more on the night and they will be disappointed to crash out in the semis.
Goa, on the other hand, rejoice but will hope to put on an improved show in the final.
That's it from me, Aravind Suchindran. We'll have the Super Cup Qualifiers on March 15 and 16 so do log onto Sportskeeda for the full coverage of it and the ISL. See ya!
90+5' Goa move up for a free-kick and Edu Bedia floats it deep but Carlos Pena's header is wayward.
90+3' Yellow for Joyner for a foul on Edu Bedia.
Yellow - Joyner Laurenco (Mumbai City)
90+2' CHANCE!
Sougou on the left, sets up Goian with a chip but before the Mumbai defender can try the header, the Goan defence gets it away.
Five minutes added.
86' SAVED!
A testing free-kick by Matias Mirabaje and Naveen Kumar makes a full stretch to glove it away.
Sougou lurks but he shoots above the frame. Disappointment continues for the Senegalese forward.
82' WIDE!
Sougou and Mumbai can't believe it.
Mohammad Rafique wins the ball on the right and plays a ball quickly to the centre.
Sougou tries to flick it in but he shoots agonisingly wde.
80' About time.
Lucian Goian uses his body to shield Hugo Boumous and that sparks a clash between the two.
Referee shows the card.
Yellow - Lucian Goian (Mumbai City)
Yellow - Hugo Boumous (Goa)
78' Substitution - Goa.
OFF - Ferran Corominas
ON - Zaid Krouch
76' Substitution - Mumbai City. The goalscorer is taken off.
OFF - Rafael Bastos
ON - Matias Mirabaje
73' Time is failing Mumbai and all that promise they had shown earlier in the game will more or less count for nothing.
69' Substitution - Mumbai City.
OFF - Raynier Fernandes
ON - Mohammad Rafique
66' Mumbai's frustration shows as Sougou's faintest nudge is enough for Edu Bedia to go down. Sougou apologises and the referee asks Goa to get the play going.
65' Substitution - FC Goa
OFF - Brandon Fernandes
ON - Manvir Singh
62' Mumbai break on the counter with Arnold finding Rafael Bastos on the left. But Seriton denies him a shot, getting in the path of Bastos and the deflection giving Mumbai a corner.
60' Just about half an hour to go and Mumbai still need 4 goals, while preventing Mumbai from scoring.
Now, Joyner Laurenco clips Corominas and concedes a free-kick on the right.
Anwar Ali gets his arms on Hugo Bomous and even elbows the Goan player inside the box but the referee doesn't deem that infraction a foul.
What a golden opportunity Corominas fluffs.
Starting the move, he finds Jackichand, whose cross is tugged away by Amrinder.
Coro is there to meet the save but his chance from 6 yards out bounces off the frame.
54' On the pitch, Brandon Fernandes tries to cut across the box again but Lucian Goian pulls off another tackle to stop that run.
53' Referee R Venkatesh stops the play and issues a stern warning to Sergio Lobera, who expresses unhappiness over Mumbai City's tackles on his players.
The assistant coach has to go to the stands.
48' SHOT!
And we haven't seen that in a while from Ferran Corominas.
It seems like he's still warming up as he turns around and makes a tame attempt at the goal with his weaker left foot. No worries for Amrinder.
46' Second half underway.
Edu Bedia in distress early on after a foul by Paulo Machado. The physios are in.
Half time at Fatorda and Goa are down - not by much - by a goal against Mumbai City.
Rafael Bastos struck in the 6th minute and Mumbai could have had a couple of more too.
Goa are anyway up 5-2 on aggregate now but if Mumbai bring the same first-half performance into the second 45, they could give Goa a really difficult time.
Stay tuned for the second half.
Two minutes added.
44' Approaching half-time and we're seeing end-to-end stuff here.
Rafael Bastos has hit shot blocked and Naveen Kumar charges out and clears it out for a throw-in.
39' An early change for Goa and that's probable because Jahouh is on a yellow.
OFF - Ahmed Jahouh
ON - Edu Bedia
38' Better from Goa.
Corominas spots Jackichand and the Goa winger just waits before chipping it to Boumous at the centre.
The Moroccan's header rolls wide.
36' Things are heating up at the moment in Goa with Lucian Goian allowing no passage to Mandar.
Brandon floats a set-piece into the middle and Goian gets it away with an important header.
34' CARD!
Sougou uses his shoulder to win the ball from Ahmed Jahouh but the Moroccan drags the forward down in frustration.
Yellow - Ahmed Jahouh (Goa)
32' Half an hour up and there have been 9 corners in the game. 
Mumbai, who had 4 of them, can't capitalise on one.
29' Rafael Bastos finds Arnold Issoko, hoping for a 1-2 but the midfielder's pass is a disappointing one.
27' Goa playing crosses after crosses and it looks like they will score any time now. 
Mumbai regain possession and bring the tempo down.
23' SAVE!
Sougou manages to stay onside and chases after that through-ball by Arnold along with Mourtada Fall.
The shot is right at Naveen but Sougou wants a penalty after the rebound his Fall on the hand.
Goa lucky to escape a penalty there.
22' Lucian Goian now has to come up with an important tackle to deny Brandon from the right side of the box.
21' Arnold Issoko looks for a step-over but plays the cross early and complains that Mandar's hand blocked it from reaching the intended target.
He expects a penalty but the ref is not interested.
19' After some intense first 15 minutes, Goa have calmed down and are dictating the pace of the game now.
The Mumbai defenders are committing mistakes in the box, which is not helping things.
14' There's a 100 metre dash between Arnold Issoko and Mandar Rao Dessai. The Goa captain wins it comfortably to clear away the danger. To be fair to Arnold, Mandar had an advantage when the pass was played.
Mumbai City have their first corner and Sougou meets Machado's take, but the Senegalese forward can't bring the header down.
8' Mumbai seem to have found some confidence and they push up with Modou Sougou chasing after a ball. He drags it back to Arnold Issoko, who pokes with the outside of his boot to the far post, a comfortable pick for Naveen Kumar.
And no, it's not Goa. Rafael Bastos gives Mumbai City the lead and Goa's goalkeeper Naveen Kumar is unhappy.
A poor clearance by Goa and Arnold Issoko pounces on it, wards off Ahmed Jahouh's sliding tackle and plays it through to Bastos, who slots it past Naveen. 
4' At the other end, Ahmed Jahouh slides to bring down Raynier forcibly. Paulo Machado's delivery into the box is whipped away by the Goan defence.
3' Quite an easy save that one for Amrinder.
Brandon Fernandes curls it straight to the Mumbai City goalkeeper.
2' Goa are on the attack from the word go and why aren't we surprised. 
And they concede a free-kick in a dangerous position with Milan Singh committing a foul on Hugo Boumous.
Mumbai have to endure some tough 90 minutes. 
Referee for tonight - R Venkatesh
We're approaching kick-off time at the Fatorda Stadium.
Countdown is on...
Out of the 15 goals Ferran Corominas has scored this season, 9 of them have come at home. He could build a steady lead in the golden boot race with a couple of more strikes in the Goa v Mumbai ISL Semifinal tonight.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's Live Coverage of the Goa v Mumbai City ISL semifinal. This game will be a mere formality for Goa really but it will be interesting to see if they can score more against Mumbai. This is Aravind Suchindran and let's see how the teams line up for this second leg.
Mumbai are a counter-attacking side but they cannot sit back and wait for Goa because they have to score at least 5 goals in this second leg. Mumbai need to press up high on the pitch and have to play with an attacking mindset, taking inspiration from the fact they have conceded the second lowest goals on counter - 4.
That has to come from within for Mumbai to make the ISL final. But that's not the case as Jorge Costa conceded defeat by saying, "Our dream is finished. I do not believe in miracles."
Four out of six times, the team that won the first leg has gone on to progress to the ISL final. Can the Islanders script a stunning comeback in the Goa v Mumbai ISL Semifinal second leg?
Goa have scored 16 goals from crosses, the highest in the league. Mumbai, on the other hand, have conceded 10 goals from crosses. 
From the first leg, Goa amassed 5 goals with the 10 shots on target that they had. Mumbai, on the other hand, lost out because they could convert only 1 of their 8 shots on target into a goal.
In the last four matches against Mumbai, Goa have scored 15 goals and conceded 5. The 5-1 win in the first leg is the second time Goa has scored 5 in a single game. Before the Mumbai City v Goa ISL Semifinal, they had won 5-0 during the league stage.
Goa's 5-1 win was the biggest ever victory in an ISL semifinal. However, that was only the first leg and Goa are not done with Mumbai yet. They could pile more misery tonight in the Goa v Mumbai City ISL Semifinal.
Probable Line-ups:
Goa Probable XI:
Naveen Kumar (GK), Mourtada Fall, Carlos Pena, Seriton Fernandes, Mandar Rao Dessai (C), Ahmed Jahouh, Lenny Rodrigues, Brandon Fernandes, Edu Bedia, Jackichand Singh, Ferran Corominas

Mumbai City Probable XI: Amrinder Singh (GK/C), Joyner Lourenco, Subhasish Bose, Sauvik Chakrabarti, Lucian Goian, Sehnaj Singh, Raynier Fernandes, Arnold Issoko, Paulo Machado, Modou Sougou, Rafael Bastos
Goa v Mumbai ISL Semifinal preview:

FC Goa are expected to cruise past Mumbai City in the second leg of their ISL semifinal on Tuesday and book their berth in the ISL final on March 17.

Goa thrashed Mumbai City 5-1 in the first leg at the Mumbai Football Arena despite trailing 1-0 as early as the 20th minute. Jackichand Singh equalised 11 minutes later to get Goa back in the game. Mourtada Fall scored a brace with Ferran Corominas and Brandon Fernandes hitting one apiece in Goa's big win.

The Gaurs carry five away goals into the second leg, which means Mumbai City have to beat them by a 5-0 margin or better to make the final. 

Tuesday's match is expected to be a cakewalk for Goa but they would not underestimate Mumbai, who have recorded the biggest win this season - a 6-1 trumph over Kerala Blasters.

Mumbai City coach Jorge Costa will draw inspiration from that win and bank on the front combination of Modou Sougou, Rafael Bastos and Arnold Issoko to get them going from the word go.

High-scoring close encounters aren't a new thing for Goa but Sergio Lobera has worked on the team's defence this season and that has seen them keep 8 clean sheets compared to last season's 2. Goa have improved significantly in the defensive unit and this will make it all the more difficult on Mumbai City.

Fall and Carlos Pena have held the wall strong with goalkeeper Naveen Kumar, signed from Kerala Blasters in January, displaying sublime skills between the sticks.

Even though the scoreline is in Goa's favour, they are not expected to play a defensive game against Mumbai. Corominas, Edu Bedia and Brandon will, in fact, look to peg Mumbai back with a couple of more goals.

Goa had beaten Mumbai 5-0 and 2-0 in the league stage and the record seems to be getting worse for Mumbai.

When and where to watch: The Live Streaming of the Goa v Mumbai ISL Semifinal will be available on Hotstar and Jio TV. The TV Telecast is on Star Sports Network from 7.30 pm IST.
