Shillong Lajong vs East Bengal Live Score and Commentary

Shillong Lajong

1 - 2
East Bengal

...
This has been an extremely paradoxical contest that should go down in the books as a Lajong loss rather than an East Bengal win. The home team did nothing but attack throughout the game. East Bengal, on the other hand, took their opportunities, stayed in the game and defended well. Chris Payne scored two goals in the first half before Dicka cut the lead into half with a goal of his own in the second period. 
...
FULL TIME Shillong Lajong 1-2 East Bengal
...
90+3' Lajong get a free kick with a minute left to play. It goes out for a corner
...
90' If one looks at the highlights of this game, on occasion it might seem that the same tape is being played all the time. Lajong attack again and they cannot get a shot away
...
87' We need to probably find out which God East Bengal prays to because my word he/she is on fire today. For almost the entire match, EB have done nothing but defend and score off two errors from Lajong. They are leading 2-0
...
85' MISSSSSS! The miss virus gets transferred from Dicka to Rupert as a counter attack from the home team sees him one on one with the goalkeeper but he strikes it over the bar. HOW HAVE LAJONG NOT DRAWN LEVEL
...
83' DICKA DICKA DICKA! If he probably puts a Rs. 2000 note for every chance he has got today, the Lajong forward can easily buy an iPhone. He takes another shot, a rather acrobatic one but it is not good enough
...
82' Man of the Match Chris Payne comes off to a rather unsavory ovation by the Lajong fans and you can probably understand their frustration 
...
80' Lajong make a change as they bring on Nongrum for Fabio. They are going for the jugular here and East Bengal need to watch out
...
78' Bengal make a change by taking Gurwinder off and bringing on Anwar Ali. They need to hold on for 12 minutes! Bukenya defends well to deny Dicka yet another opportunity
...
76' CHANCE!! Dicka gets yet another opportunity in front of goal after a long ball finds him in the box but he cannot finish it. OH DICKA
...
73' 17 minutes plus stoppage time remaining in this game and Lajong need to keep asking questions of the East Bengal defence. They are enjoying a lot of possession and making more decisive movements forward. The goal can come. 
...
71' CHANCE and SAVED!! Lajong are really upping the ante here in the game as Samuela let's fly from outside the box and Rehenesh makes a good save. The corner results in a free kick but Isaac hits it into the wall
...
70' Lots happening here is Shillong as Ralte comes on for Poojari, a couple of minutes after which, Lalthlamuana gets in the book
...
67' This is exactly what the doctor ordered for Shillong Lajong and they have a great chance of coming into the game now. There are about 25 minutes remaining in the game and they need to continue the pressure. 
...
64' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLL Dicka scores for Shillong Lajong FINALLY

You cannot say that the goal has not been coming for Lajong. The break on the attack and East Bengal leave a lot of space open in the box, the cross finds Dicka and he makes no mistake at all. 
...
61' We have crossed the hour mark and East Bengal, quite surprisingly, are well in control of the game despite the ball being with Lajong all the time. Trevor James Morgan should be looking at the bench to make a change in personnel
...
59' Kinowaki attempts a cross but Poojary comes in the way to take one in the face. Lajong move forward but like usual, nothing comes off it. 
...
58' Bengal get a couple of corners and both are directed towards Robin Singh but Lajong are up to the task. Lajong attack again and they win a couple of corners as well. 
...
55' Bengal are defending in numbers here and they seem to be quite comfortable doing it. Robin Singh has performed exceptionally well today and although he has not been on the score sheet, his work rate has been fabulous
...
52' Shadap wins a corner for Lajong but Bengal are up to the task. Samuel later gets a yellow for a rash challenge on Gurwinder
...
50' Just like the first half, it has been all Lajong till now. They are attacking relentlessly here but cannot seem to find the back of the net. Chances being created one after the other. 
...
49' CHANCE!! Robin and Payne combine beautifully in the box and a little one-two sees the latter take a shot that is just wide
...
48' ANOTHER CHANCE!! Lajong have to do something here. Bipin puts in another ball from the right and there are no takers. The counter sees Payne almost score. Lajong have been really sloppy
...
46' Lajong get us underway and they are shooting from left to right. They attack straight away and a throw in sees the ball being played to Bipin, who sends in a low cross across the goal but there are no takers. 
...
PEEEEPPPPP
...
The teams are coming out and we are heading to the start of this game. Can East Bengal hang on to the two-goal cushion or will Lajong be less wasteful and score to draw level or possibly, win the match? Let's find out
...
The second half is going to be interesting as Lajong are going to press forward while Bengal are going to sit back and absorb the pressure. 
...
We have come to the end of a half that has been pretty paradoxical and the home team are to blame for it. Despite having more possession, chances and shots, Lajong are trailing 2-0, courtesy a brace from Chris Payne. 
...
HALF TIME Shillong Lajong 0-2 East Bengal
...
45 + 1' Lajong with possession but Bengal know what they have to do and do exactly the same. Isaac plays the cross and Dika misses yet again. 
...
Two minutes of added time
...
43' A piece of play that defines Lajong's first half. Samuel receives the ball on the wing, he moves forward, passes it to Isaac, who threads it to Bipin. The winger goes for a shot but it is over the bar. Lajong - Too close yet too far
...
41' Around five minutes remain in the first half of this contest and East Bengal need to do nothing stupid. If they can go into the break in the lead, it could well be the match for them
...
39' A bit of a scuffle between Payne and Fabio as the former barges into the latter and then goes back to him, accusing the Lajong player of making too much of it. 
...
37' Freekick to Lajong outside the box and Samuela goes for goal but he hits it straight into the hands of Rehenesh, who gets his first real shot at him
...
35' WELL WELL WELL! What do Lajong have in them now? They have done everything except scoring goals and making horrible errors in their own box. They are trailing 2-0 and there is no sign of a goal. 
...
33' GOOOOOOOOOOOALLLL Chris Payne scores for East Bengal. The table toppers are showing exactly why they are there with this performance. The ball is played into the box and after Lajong cannot clear it, Payne gets on to the end of it to smash it home for the Men in White. East Bengal lead 2-0
...
32' HEROIC defending from Gurwinder. A couple of chances for Lajong again as the ball gets into the box and Fabio goes for the jugular. The ball then falls to Dika and his shot is prevented by Gurwinder
...
30' Half an hour gone in this game and somehow the scoreline says East Bengal 1-0 Shillong Lajong despite the home team creating a lion share of the chances. Dika has been profligate and so has been Fabio. Bengal, on their part, have stayed in the game by defending well and not doing anything nonsensical
