As of now, Good bye and Good Night. 

20:25 (IST)11 APR 2018

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.

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.

19:24 (IST)11 APR 2018

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.

19:10 (IST)11 APR 2018

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.
