68' W. Plaza
...
That's it for today, We will be back tomorrow for all the action from the title day as Aizawl take on Shillong Lajong and Mohun Bagan host Chennai City. Until then, goodbye!
...
It's full time at the Cooperage as East Bengal rout relegated Mumbai FC 4-0. A brace from Willis Deon Plaza and goals from Bikash Jairu and Wedson Anselme settled matters for the Red and Golds. They finish the season in a disappointing third, as the Federation Cup becomes their number one priority now.
...
90+1' 2 minutes of time added on.
...
90' Another yellow card for a Mumbai man as Theobald gets a booking late on for stamping on Borges. 
...
86' Clyde Fernandes has made it a point to remain the most involved player. His shot from outside the box goes high over the bar, but that's still an attempt for Mumbai. This game has summed up Mumbai's 2016-17 I-League season.
...
85' First yellow card of the match goes to Clyde Fernandes, who brings down Romeo on the edge of the box. Chance for East Bengal, but Jairu's attempted shot goes narrowly wide.
...
84' Tiring legs are showing for Mumbai FC here as they can't even seem to pass the ball. East Bengal are in cruise control.
...
82' Mumbai nearly create an opening but Hitesh Sharma's through ball to Dias has the experienced Indian in an offside position.
...
78' CHANCE FOR EAST BENGAL!

Brilliant interplay on the left-hand side between Anselme and Ruidas opens up the Mumbai defence, but Anselme fails to get a proper contact on his shot and Mumbai clear the danger, for now. East Bengal have been fun to watch in the 2nd half.
...
75' Mumbai SUB

Clyde Fernandes ON Victorino OFF

Finally, Mumbai's striker is relieved of his misery. It's been an evening of woeful finishing for Victorino today.
...
75' Good play on the counter by East Bengal but Romeo hits his shot from distance wide of Kattimani's goal. Substitution coming up for Mumbai.
...
72' CHANCE FOR MUMBAI!

The right-back Reagan Singh lets fly with his left foot but his shot is tipped over by Subhasish. Corner for the home team. Steven Dias delivers a juicy ball but East Bengal clear eventually.
...
71' Mumbai SUB

Shabtiar ON Pratesh Shirodkar OFF
...
68' East Bengal are having a party now. It's 4-0 with Plaza scoring his second of the evening. His ninth goal of the season is a similar finish to his eighth: past Kattimani from the edge of the box.
...
68' GOALLL!
...
68' East Bengal SUB

Romeo Fernandes ON Poojary OFF
...
It seems like Poojary has twisted his ankle, which will force East Bengal to make their final sub.
...
66' Poojary is down injured. East Bengal have only one substitution left. The midfielder has been stretchered off.
...
64' CHANCE FOR MUMBAI!

It's Victorino once again and he misses from a narrow angle. It's been a game of misses for the Mumbai striker.
...
63' East Bengal have the game in the bag now. Anselme's first-time finish from Jairu's cutback hands the Red and Golds their third of the evening. It's been too easy for East Bengal.
...
62' GOAALLL!
...
60' Another wayward shot from Mumbai's Victorino Fernandes. The striker has taken up good positions this evening but his end product has been frustratingly lacking.
...
59' Mehtab has changed the dynamics of the game for East Bengal. The combative midfielder has plugged the holes in midfield for his side, and once again come away with the ball. What a change it has been for East Bengal.
...
57' Both teams are lacking that cutting edge in attack; instead, they are going for the long, diagonal pass far too often.
...
55' Mumbai SUB

Dias ON Hanghal OFF
...
54' Good tackle by Ruidas to prevent Reagan from meeting a through ball on the overlap. Corner to Mumbai as Steven Dias makes an appearance.
...
53' Mumbai have lost their verve and confidence from the 1st half. The 2nd goal has hit them hard, and they are not being able to settle into the game at all this half.
...
51' East Bengal are looking much better in attack in the 2nd half than the 1st. Anselme releases Bheke, who finds space to cross from the right, but his ball goes out for a corner. East Bengal squander their chance to score from the set-piece.
...
48' Chance for East Bengal!

Plaza, who is put through on goal by Poojary, hits straight at Kattimani in the Mumbai goal. Glorious chance for the goalscorer which ends up in a corner for East Bengal. 
...
46' Early shot from Victorino, who puts his left-footed effort from outside the box just wide of the East Bengal goal. The home side are showing intent early on in this half.
...
46' Mumbai kick off from left to right in the 2nd half. Can they stage a comeback in the next 45 minutes?
...
In the other game today, Bengaluru are sitting on a 2-0 HT lead against Churchill Brothers at the Kanteerava Stadium.
...
It's half time at the Cooperage Ground. East Bengal lead 2-0 but it's not been a vintage display from the Kolkata giants. They have been let off by Mumbai's poor finishing as Jairu and Plaza capitalised on rare openings to give the Red and Golds a comfortable lead. The 2nd half starts in a while.
...
45+1' The 2nd goal has allowed more breathing space to East Bengal after they survived the Mumbai onslaught for more than half an hour. Plaza's finish was of the highest quality, and that has the difference between East Bengal and Mumbai this season: goals.
...
45+1' 3 minutes of time added on.
...
41' East Bengal double their advantage as Plaza fires in his 8th of the season from the edge of the box. It's a sucker punch for Mumbai against the run of play. It will be difficult for the relegated team to come back from their latest setback.
...
41' GOALLL!!
...
40' Nearly an opening for Mumbai as Victorino races past Gurwinder but the over the top ball is too heavy as Subhasish collects it before the striker can connect.
...
39' East Bengal have been utterly dominated here by Mumbai FC. The home side's left-back, Timothy Lugun, has been a prominent attacking threat in the first half.
...
36' It's been pretty lethargic from East Bengal after the opening goal. Mehtab is brought on to add more steel to their overrun midfield as Lobo is sacrificed. Two substitutions are done already for the Red and Golds.
