67' Daniel and Dudu come on to replace Raphael Augusto and Zakeer.
66' SHOT! Jayesh Rane chests a cross from the right wing down to Raphael Augusto and the Brazilian shoots way ovr the bar.
64' Chennaiyin FC heads have clearly dropped after conceding the second goal - they are barely interested in moving the ball forwards, passing the ball across the back.
58' OH NO! Mumbai clear the ball out and Cafu produces a superb long ball to send Forlan clear, but the ball takes an awkward bounce off the turf and holds up. The Uruguayan can pass to Sunil Chhetri who had made a superb run forward down the left in acres of space, but mishits his pass and the move breaks down.
57' Goain trips Jayesh Rane on the right wing and Chennai have another chance to fashion an opportunity. Riise to take it yet again.

48' Riise channels his inner Rory Delap and sends in a bullet of a throw in that causes chaos in the Mumbai defence, but they eventually clear. As the ball finds its way back to Chennai later, Rane does well to nutmeg his marker and send in a cross, with appeals for a penalty turned down as his cross is cleared by Goian's arm.
47' Almost! Sunil Chhetri and Cafu burst into space on the left edge of the box, but the linesman has his flag up for offside. Replays show it was a marginal decision
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Chennaiyin get us underway in the second half. Can Marco Materazzi's men make a comeback or will Mumbai cement their semifinal spot?
The teams have exited the tunnel, kickoff in the second half is moments away!
Minutes away from the second half, stay tuned!
It was a fitting goal to bring up ISL's 100th this season. A superb team goal worthy of Barcelona's best, with Sunil Chhetri at the heart of it. Matias Defederico applied a cultured left foot to end the move, but the build up to the goal will surely be replayed for years to come.

41' OUCH! Mendy clatters into Forlan from behind as they challenge for an aerial ball, but the Frenchman lands awkwardly and looks to have come off worse. Forlan takes the eventual free-kick, but Sabia heads the ball out with reassured calm.
