...
That's it for today. A big thank you from us here at Sportskeeda for tuning in. See you again in the next game. 
As of now, Good bye and Good Night. 
...
Abahani Dhaka's defence performed brilliantly today allowing the Aizawl offence almost no clear shots on goal. Also while on the offensive they made sure that they would score on the few chances they got. 
Aizawl, on the other hand, missed their chances and they left gaps in their defence allowing Abahani the chance to come and exploit them. And the three first half goals seemed to be taking their a toll on them when they came out to play in the second half. They never quite looked to be too dangerous in the second half and Abahani could deal with them quite easily. 
All in all a very enjoyable game which definitely left the fans thirsting for more.  
...
And that's it. It's all over. The final score at the end is 3-0 in favour of Abahani Dhaka. 
...
90+2' It's a chance for Abahani as Nwadialu tries to curl one in with his right boot from the edge of the box. But the keeper is up to the task and collects easily.

...
86'  SUBSTITUTION(Abahani Dhaka) : E. Mahmud comes off for M. Maun Miah.
...
83' The Aizawl shoulders seem to be drooping a bit. More so than fatigue, it seems to be the weight of the three goals. 
...
79' Another chance created by Aizawl as the ball is put forward through two Abahani defenders for the left winger to chase, who gets the cross in. But the Abahani defenders are aware of the danger and cut out the cross before it can reach Dodoz.
...
76' SUBSTITUTION ( Abahani Dhaka) : E. Onuoha comes off for T. Badsha.
...
74' The substitute K. Lalthathanga scuffs a shot from inside the box letting another Aizawl chance go to waste. 
...
72' BOOKING : H. Mawia  of Aizawl FC is booked for a bad challenge. 
...
71' Jaryan takes a shot from just outside the box and it's straight at the keeper. The shot did not have any power even close enough to trouble the keeper. 
...
70' Aizawl cannot seem to penetrate this Abahani defence and the frustration is starting to show. 
...
67' SUBSTITUTION (Aizawl FC) : Lalkhawpuimawia is taken off for  K. Lalthathanga
...
63' SUBSTITUTION(Abahani Dhaka) : The goalscorer R. Miya  is taken off for   N. Newaj Jibon
...
63' Aizawl carve a good chance with some slick passing. Finally it falls to Lalkhawpuimawia who tries to flick the incoming ball forward into his path and follow it with a turn. But he goes to ground under a challenge and looks to the referee for a penalty. The referee is however unsympathetic to his pleas. 
...
60' Dodoz goes for goal from range but the shot is miles wide of the post. 
...
59' Abahani extremely content in allowing Aizawl to have all the possession. They have committed a lot of men back to fortify their defence. 
...
57' Abahani have a long-throw deep in the Aizawl half. It's R. Hasan who takes it but  Aizawl can come out with the ball. 
...
54' The shot from the free-kick is straight at the keeper who can collect easily and get his team going.

...
50' Aizawl fashion a chance. But the final ball in from the right goes beyond the Aizawl player in the box. 
...
49' Abahani will be very happy the way the game is unfolding at the moment. The bulk of the play happening in the middle of the pitch and both teams losing the ball at regular intervals. 
...
47' SUBSTITUTION(Aizawl FC) : L. Varte goes off for A. Ionescu
...

...
There's the whistle and we're off in the second half with Aizawl on the ball. 
...
The players are walking back onto the pitch as we get ready for the second half. 
...
Abahani seat in a comfortable position in this game with a three goal cushion and it's seems it will be more of the same from Abahani in the second half. 
Santosh Kashyap will have a task at his hands when he tries to get his boys to find the motivation to come back from this. 
...
Abahani put pressure at the start and managed to find two goals. But Aizawl FC seemed to be fighting their way back into it. But just then, Abahani scored their third goal and at the moment Aizawl seem shell-shocked. 
Abahani have carried out their defensive duties well, so much so, that their keeper has seen very little of the ball. The one time he was off his line and a shot came in the defenders were their to make the goal-line clearance. 
In comparison to that the Abahani players kept on finding space between the players in the Aizawl back line. Also they have taken the chances they got, unlike Aizawl. 

...
It's all over for the first half. The score reads 3-0 to Abahani Dhaka.
...
It will be one minute of added time at the end of the first half. 
...

...
43' Abahani on the ball again with Nwadialu on the ball on the left. But nothing comes off it and Aizawl have a throw.

...
39' Aizawl seem rattled. They have lost their flow. They are failing to connect their passes and create a good chance. 
...
36' GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Abahani are running riot over here as Kojima Seiya gets onto the scoresheet. The ball comes swerving in from the left from the left boot of M. Faisal. Nwadialu intelligently heads it down straight at Kojima's feet, who calmly takes a touch before putting the ball past the keeper. 
...
35' Abahani starting to enjoy more time on the ball. This could spell disaster for Aizawl FC. 
...
33' Abahani finally have another shot and it's the goalscorer again, R. Miya. But this time the shot goes way over the bar. 

...
31' Another chance goes begging for Aizawl FC. It's a cute little interplay between Dodoz and Jaryan just outside the Abahani box. Dodoz plays it to Jaryan and darts forward for the return. But it never comes as Jaryan goes for the shot which is wide of the left post.
...
29' Abahani No.3 M.Faisal is on the ground holding his head. Looks like he's taken a knock. 
...
26' Aizawl putting Dhaka under immense pressure at the moment. There is only wave after wave of Aizawl attack. But they are missing chances which can later cost them dearly. 
...
22' Aizawl FC's second corner in three minutes and a big save made by the Abahani defence. The ball is whipped in, the keeper comes out to punch. He mistimes it and the ball falls for Jaryan, whose shot is blocked on the line by the Abahani defenders. Close call. 
...
19' It's Albert on the ball again for Aizawl. Most of their attack seems to be coming from the right. Renthlei puts the ball into his path from the right. But Albert's shot gets deflected off a defender and out for a corner.
...
15' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!!!!!

...
10' Albert makes a darting run for Aizawl FC, down the right, but nothing comes off it. He desperately needed support which was just not there. 
...
8' Aizawl Fc slowly getting into rhythm. They are starting to find their passes. 
...
6' Big chance missed by Abahani. It's Nwadialu who runs onto the ball beating the off-side trap. He also chips the keeper but cannot find the net. 
...
4' Abahani keeping up the pressure on Aizawl FC not letting them settle. They are creating a lot of chances. 

...
