Until then, this is Aaditya Narayan signing off. Cheers!
A very boring draw. There were very few clear cut chances apart from Cafu hitting the crossbar for Mumbai and Pelissari striking the post for Delhi. Mumbai finish top of the league. Delhi finish second.
Tomorrow is another huge game with Kerala Blasters taking on NorthEast United in a winner-takes-all encounter in Kochi. A draw would mean Kerala go through in fourth place. A result would mean that the winner takes third place.
So do join us for that huge match tomorrow!
MUMBAI CITY FC 0-0 DELHI DYNAMOS
92' Delhi with one more attempt. Pelissari drives them forward to play Kean Lewis through. His attempted reverse pass to Malouda is cleaned up by Goian and Anwar between them.
92' Ralte wins the ball easily and plays it to Norde on the left side, but his cross is easily dealt with by Niasse.
THREE MINUTES OF ADDED TIME.
For the fans, the whistle cannot come soon enough. Mumbai will top the league and play a semifinal second leg at home against whoever finishes fourth.
89' Udanta goes close!
Leo Costa tries to inject urgency into Mumbai's play as he drives them forward. He plays through Udanta on the right side. The little Indian cuts back onto his left foot, but his shot goes just wide. Doblas looked to have had it covered though.
87' Sana is strong again
Costa plays Forlan through in the right side channel. His cross is anticipated by Sana and cleared away.
Malouda has been anonymous since he came on.
85' Mumbai again probe without quality. Leo Costa's attempted cross hits Niasse and rolls harmlessly through to Doblas.
84' UFF CLOSE!
Forlan plays long ball into the box from the halfway line towards Goian. The big Romanian heads it across goal to Udanta who doesn't find any power on his header. The ball loops up for Doblas to catch. Gerson clatters into him.
After all of Guimaraes's promises that they will offer exciting football - he even spoke about the 5-4 between Goa and Chennai - this is disappointingly boring.
81' Mumbai have a free-kick. THERE IS CONFUSION BETWEEN NIASSE AND DOBLAS!
Delhi get lucky as Gerson was lurking around, but the ball goes far enough away from him.
78' NORDE ALMOST!
The Haitian almost has a dream start. He takes Forlan's pass into the box with an immaculate touch but Sana and Niasse combine to starve him of space. He gets a shot away but it is horribly scuffed and rolls through to Doblas.
Defederico goes off. A quiet day for the Argentine. Sony Norde replaces him.
Can we get this over with already? Both sides have gone back to their slumber after hitting the woodwork once apiece.
The Frenchman finds space after receiving a pass from Kean Lewis. But his right-footed shot is wild. Nowhere near troubling Amrinder.
72' Delhi hit straight back!
Pelissari drives Delhi forward and gets a fierce shot away. But it hits the post this time. Finally there is life in this snoozefest.
CAFU HITS THE BAR!
A stunning left footed strike from the Brazilian had Doblas beaten, but the woodwork denies him.
FLORENT MALOUDA COMES ON! Delhi cannot choose a better time for their captain to make a difference. He replaces Badji.
70' Badji nearly ensures that doesn't happen. But he scuffs his shot. Alwyn could have gambled on going through but the ball rolls out for a goal kick.
Amrinder is 20 minutes away from a fourth successive clean sheet.
Delhi have well and truly fizzled out of the game. It is all Mumbai now. But the league leaders don't have the clinical touch today.
68' Gerson with a lovely reverse ball for Leo Costa. His shot hits Niasse and goes out for a Mumbai corner.
66' The corner comes to nothing. Delhi cleared the lines, but not before a little bit of confusion.
Defederico teases Addy before playing it to Forlan on the edge of the area. The captain's shot is goal-bound till it hit Sana's head and went out for a corner.
Delhi are crying out for someone to dictate play. They do have a certain Champions League winner in their ranks.
By the way, Ashutosh Mehta replaced Sehnaj at half-time.
Krisztian Vadocz is replaced by Leo Costa. These remaining thirty minutes will be the only ones Vadocz has missed in the group stage.
61' Vadocz and Cafu combine to set Udanta away on the left side. His cross is again too close to Doblas who inexplicably decides to punch.
59' But they will not sit on the point. Vadocz plays a beautiful pass to Forlan on the right flank. His quality lets him down as he hits his cross straight into the grateful arms of Doblas.
This suits Mumbai. A draw will ensure they finish top.
58' Once again Lewis is involved. He tries to beat Anwar on the outside but runs the ball out of play for a goal kick.
57' Lewis's turn to be wasteful now. He cuts in onto his right foot on the edge of the area. But the shot is high, wide and wild.
55' Goian tries to do just that with a nice cross-field pass. But the Argentine cannot bring it down without conceding the throw-in.
Mumbai need to bring Forlan and Defederico back into proceedings.
But, it has been much better from Delhi. Lewis, Pelissari and Alwyn are seeing more of the ball and getting into dangerous positions.
54' The former Chennaiyin man is wasteful again. The corner is too deep and trickles harmlessly for a goal kick.
53' Delhi have started this half much the better side. Pelissari the next to threaten as his shot from distance deflects behind off Anwar. Delhi corner.
51' Pelissari with a stunning ball for Alwyn! But the Indian midfielder wastes the chance. He cuts back in and takes one heavy touch, which is enough for Goian to pounce on and avert the danger.
