With that, we come to the end of our coverage for tonight's game, as Mumbai come away with their third win of the season. Its been a rather poor start for NorthEast, and they will be looking to get over this as soon as possible. That's all we have for tonight, but do stay logged in to Sportskeeda for more news from around the world of sports.
...
Full Time! With that, we come to the end of the match, as Mumbai get their third win of the season. Meanwhile NorthEast are yet to score a goal in front of their fans. Mumbai, on the other hand, move to the fourth spot on the ISL table with that win, and are looking like they are building some momentum this season.
...
90 + 6 - Ruidas plays an aerial through ball to Balwant, who gets in behind the defence. However, he seemed too eager to get his hattrick, and pulled the trigger too early.
...
90 + 4 - Ruidas cuts in, and slips it to Raju on the overlap. Raju skips past a tackle, enters the box, and pulls the trigger from almost zero angle. However, Ravi makes the save. Balwant, who was unmarked in the middle does not look pleased. He is on a hattrick, and would have liked the chance to add a third to his name tonight.
...
90 + 2 - Ruidas breaks down the left, but soon slows down the attack, as he squares the ball to Rosario. Mumbai are in no hurry, right now.
...
90 - 6 minutes of injury time has been added on.
...
88 - Amidst a plethora of NorthEast attacks, Everton breaks through on goal via a through ball from Balwant. However, he is soon flagged offside.
...
84 - Goncalves jinks past a defender, but the ball rolls a little too far from him, and he goes in with a heavy sliding tackle to bring down Davinder. The Mumbai players immediately surrounding the referee with Gerson leading the protest. After diffusing the situation, the referee shows Goncalves a yellow card. The NorthEast captain certainly got lucky there.
...
80 - Substitute Rembuia comes in for Holicharan, and takes a throw straight away, but Emana commits a foul on the flak.
...
79 - Goncalves chests the ball in the box, and goes for the volley, but Goian sticks a foot out and blocks it. In the process, he also managed to catch his foot. However, the referee waves play on.
...
77 - Reegan plays in a good cross, as Doungel flies in for the header inside the box. However, he missed it completely, and Ruidas clears it with his head.
...
74 - Play resumes, as NorthEast get on the attack again, but they look completely toothless. Mumbai are sitting back and picking them off on the counter easily.
...
72 - Amrinder collides with Goncalves, and immediately goes down to the ground, calling for medical attention. He seems to have hurt his shounder there. However, it doesn't look like its anything that a little ice-pack and a little bandage can't fix.
...
70 - Danilo jinks past a couple of defenders and pulls the trigger, but Gerson is at the spot to make yet another block.
...
68 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! Balwant doubles it for Mumbai! Borges loses the ball deep in his own half, and Emana is there to pounce on that mistake, as he breaks away towards a goal with just the advancing keeper in front of him. However, he shows great awareness to square it to Balwant, who merely had to tap it into an empty net.
...
67 - Holicharan twists and turns on the left flank, and sends in a cross. However, Gerson gets a block on that, averting the danger.
...
66 - Guimaraes makes his first change of the evening, as Zakeer comes on for Sanju Pradhan
...
65 - Free Kick for Mumbai! Emana swings it in towards an unmarked Balwant, but the Indian national team striker surprisingly heads it over the bar.
...
63 - Emana lines up a shot from outside the box, towards the bottom corner, but Ravi Kumar does well to get down and save it. Everton charged away towards the rebound, but Ravi managed to get to the ball in time.
...
60 - Marcinho bursts into the box, and goes down under some pressure from Gerson. However, the referee waves play on. 
...
57 - Marcinho lines up the free kick from outside the box, but hits it straight at the wall.
...
56 - Goian with yet another foul, and brings Marcinho bundling to the ground.
...
54 - Marcinho fires in another cross, while being under some pressure from Gerson, but its a wayward ball and sails well over the goal.
...
52 - Goncalves looks uncomfortable on the ball, and gets tackled on the halfway line, but Sambinha is alert to the situation and recovers it.
...
49 - Chance! Marcinhoskips past Goian on the left flank, and fires in a cross towards Danilo, but he scoffs his shot wide. That was a golden chance for the Highlanders.
...
48 - Thiago advances down the right and enters the box, but there's nobody to pass to, and he checks back and passes it back to Ruidas 
...
46 - Welcome back for the second half, as we get the action underway. NorthEast have taken the early initiative once again.
...
Half Time! And with that, we come to the end of the match, as referee Santhosh Kumar blows his whistle. It has been a half that has been dominated by NorthEast, but Mumbai have been clinical in front of goal, with marksman Balwant netting from the only chance that he got. Its been an enthralling half of football, and we are expecting more when the action gets underway in the second half. Stay tuned to out live coverage. See you on the other side.
...
42 - Free Kick NEUFC! Marcinho puts his laces through it, and manages to send a vicious shot towards goal, but it is straight into Amrinder's arms.
...
40 -NEUFC are showing the urgency, as they switch from one flank to the other, but the Mumbai defence, after that goal, seems to have clamped down on their defending third.
...
38 - Balwant makes another run, trying to latch on to an aerial ball, but the NorthEast defence is on high alert this time, and averts the danger.
...
34 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!! Balwant Singh puts Mumbai in the lead!!!! Balwant makes another one of his runs, and beats the offside trap this time, as he breaks away towards the box. NEUFC's second choice keeper Ravi Kumar rushed out of his box and took Balwant out with a sliding tackle, but the Mumbai striker had slipped the ball past him at just the right moment, to score the goal. NEUFC 0-1 Mumbai!
...
32 - Goian has been a menace in the middle of the park today. He commits another foul on Marcino, as he pulls his shirt and brings him down.
...
30 - Ruidas plays a cross into the Mumbai box, as the ball took a bounce and found itself at the feet of Everton. However, the former PSG man could not control it, and NorthEast clear it easily.
...
26 - Doungel finds himself inside the box with the ball at his feet, and just Amrinder in front of him. However, the ball too a weird bobble, and he blazed it over the bar.
...
22 - Goian with a ballant foul inside the Mumbai half, as NEUFC get a free kick. However, the chance is easily negotiated by the NorthEast defence.
...
20 - NorthEast are completely dominating Mumbai in this game so far. The Islanders are failing to make the incisive passes in the opposition half, and NEUFC are capitalising on that.
...
16 - Holicharan Narzary takes a shot at goal from just outside the box, but it is saved.
...
11 - Balwant makes the run again, but the NorthEast defence catches him offside yet again. It seems to be a cat-and-mouse affair between them.
...
6 - Balwant makes a rare foray into the NEUFC area, but is soon called back for offside. NorthEast seem to have an iron grip on th game in the opening exchanges.
