That's all for today. Thank You again for tuning in. See you next time. 
Good Bye and Good Night. 
...
East Bengal had a clear chance to win the league if they won this game and the next. But, with the two points they drop here, they will be at the mercy of the other fixtures, to have a chance of winning the title. 
East Bengal are guilty of allowing Shillong Lajong back into the match, by sitting off in the second half and not pressing. After going down a goal, they should have had more intensity. But, they didn't and Shillong Lajong capitalised well on the chance and made it count. 
Lajong came out in the second half looking a much better team and put good pressure on the East Bengal defence. Koffi, Samuel and Jagne made some good runs, leaving the East Bengal defenders far behind. They also made sure not to miss chances and got the goals when needed.

All-in-all, an extremely entertaining match for the neutral football fan, leading up to a mouth-watering race to the league-summit.  
...
Nidhin Lal has been adjudged to be the Hero of the Match. 
...
Dudu starts running with the ball but it goes out of the throw-line and there's the referee's whistle. 
 It finishes all square at 2-2.  
...
90+5' Samuel gets the ball and rushes forward. It's two on three as he has Koffi in support. The pass reaches Koffi. He delays his shot and the final shot is too weak to beat Ubaid. 
...
90+4' Samad has an altercation with Samuel and the latter goes down clutching his face. 
...
90+3' Foul committed by Dohling and EB have a big chance. 
...
90+1' Justin takes a shot, it falls for two other EB players, but Lajong have many men behind the ball. 
...
There will be five minutes added to the end of this half. 
...
88' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!
EB are level and it's Dudu to the rescue again. Jobby justin heads a cross into the box, straight to Kromah's feet. He takes a shot and Dudu is there at the far post to head it into the empty net in front. 
...
87' Gabriel puts in back-to-back into the box. But the Lajong defence, deals with both. 
...
85' Lal down on the ground in a heap, as he goes to catch a cross. Jobby Justin is also there, trying to head it and they collide. 
...
84' SUBSTITUTION(Shillong Lajong) : Jagne is taken off for Sheen
...
81' SUBSTITUTION (East Bengal) : Gabriel comes on for Lobo.
...
80' Lobo gives it to Katsumi on the right. He puts the ball in on the head of Dudu. But it's a bit too high and Dudu cannot get the required power into the header. Lal collects easily.  
...
79' Koffi goes down in the box, but does not get the penalty. The EB defence has dropped very deep, conceding the spaces in midfield, to Lajong. 
...
77' Katsumi takes a beautiful corner, causing all sorts of problems in the box. But, Lajong somehow manage to get it out of the box. 
Odafin gets it and hurtles forward with the ball. He gives it to Koffi, who takes a shot but it's too weak. 
...
76' EB have a corner, as Lobo's shot is blocked by the defender. 
...
74' Lajong miss a chance, as Samuel opts to shoot himself instead of passing it to the free man on his left. The shot is blocked easily. 
...
73' SUBSTITUTION(East Bengal) : Mehtab is taken off for Samad
...
72' EB seem shell-shocked. They seem to have lost their patience and are committing needless tackles. 
...
68' Penalty for Lajong. Koffi gives it to Samuel inside the box. Mehtab makes a clumsy two-footed challenge on Samuel. Referee points straight to the spot. 
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Samuel takes up to take the spot-kick. He calmly places it low past the left of Ubaid. Lajong lead now with  a solitary goal. 
...
67' SUBSTITUTION(East Bengal) : Brandon is taken off for Jobby Justin.
...
66' Lajong on the offensive again Jagne gets the ball on the left. He cuts in and shoots from between two. The shot gets  a deflection and slows down, allowing Ubaid to collect easily. 
...
64' Lajong manage to get a cross in past Ranjan. but Ubaid can collect it. The ball now reaches Jagne who takes the shot from range. The ball just sails over the bar. 
...
61' Al Amna runs down the right with the ball, tries to put a grounded cross in for Dudu in the middle, but it's blocked well. 
And now Lajong can counter. Koffi take the ball out left and tries to put it in, but the ball in, is again not good enough. 
...
60' Mehtab with a darting run down the right. He puts the ball in, but cannot find anyone in the box. 
...
59' Lajong waste a corner, as it straight to the hands of Ubaid CK.
...
57' EB seem to have stopped their first-half tactic of high-pressing Lajong. They are allowing Lajong much more time on the ball, even though the scores are level again. 
...
56' Another attack by EB. Mehtab puts a ball into the box, straight on the head of Brandon. His header is saved well by Lal. He has some serious saves in this match. 
...
55' Al Amna with his trademark run down the right flank, puts a ball in, but Lal is first to it. 
...
53' Lajong  seem to have new life in this half. They are putting EB under serious pressure. 
...
51' EB with another another. The ball goes from Kroma to Dudu, who cannot reach it. The final shot is tipped over the bar, by Lal. 
...
49' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLL !!!
Lajong are back in it, as Samuel is credited with the goal. He  floats a ball in and it goes into the net, off two heads, past the keeper. EB have been caught off-guard.
...
48' Lajong have a free-kick . Jagne shows good strength as the ball is played to him. 
...
46' Lajong with an attempt early in this half. Koffi is on the ball high up the pitch and lays it off for Odafin rushing up the middle. He takes the shot first-time, but it goes just wide of the bar. 
...
There's the whistle and we are off. 
...
East Bengal made a strong start, but Shillong Lajong have definitely grown into the game well. 

Though East Bengal have created several attacks, the Shillong Lajong defence and their goalie Lal have really been up to the task till now. The only goal came from a brilliant cross off Brandon's boot. 
Shillong Lajong should not let their shoulders drop, as they are still very much in the game. They should continue attacking as they did in the later stages of the first-half. They should not let East Bengal too much time on the ball, as then it will only come back towards them and will conitnue putting pressure on their backline. 
...
There's the whistle and it signals the end of the first- half. East Bengal lead Shillong Lajong, 1-0 at the moment. 
...
45+1' Tlang drives through the middle of the EB half with the ball. He takes the shot, from range, but the ball goes wide of the post.
