Full-Time

Mohun Bagan, right from the start had established their dominion, controlling majority of the possession. The visitors looked in good shape as they came out comfortable winners in the fixture. Goals from Aser Dipanda and Akram Moghrabi in the first half gave the Green and Maroon a comfortable lead. Nikhil Kadam was impeccable too with his left feet, putting in dangerous crosses at wish. Overall it was a comprehensive performance from the visitors who now have to wait and hope other results go their way to stay alive in the title race.

As for the Arrows, they had their sporadic moments of inspiration but failed to capitalize on them. A lack of experience on the pitch was clearly visible. The hosts did well in the second half of the game to restrict conceding any goal. But in the end, the Indian Arrows were outclassed by the Kolkata giants, as they end their I-League 2017-18 season at the bottom of the table with 15 points.

Half-Time

Mohun Bagan looks comfortably poised with a two-goal cushion. The Green and Maroon have looked the better team in the first half and goals from Aser Dipanda and Akram Moghrabi keeps them ahead in the deciding fixture. MB will need to win this game and pray other results go their way in order to still be in the hunt for the title.

Arrows will be a bit disappointed as the team has shown potential but failed to convert the sporadic chances that has come their way. Luis Norton de Matos will be hoping to provide the team with some inspiration in the halftime pep talk. The Arrows will need to pull themselves up in the second half if they fancy any chance of a comeback
