...
That's all from us here as Albert Roca takes Bengaluru into another final. The Blues scored from an early Cameron Watson penalty but couldn't add to their lead thereafter. Aizawl somehow managed to earn a very late penalty but Lalram Chullova was denied by Amrinder in what was the last piece of action in the game. That's all from us here. Stay tuned for Kolkata derby action coming up next.
...

...
90+1' 7 minutes added.

90' Chance for Aizawl!

Lalmuankima tricks his way into the Bengaluru box but his shot is saved well down his right by Amrinder. That's the closest Aizawl have come to a goal today.

...
88' Substitution for Aizawl

Alfred OFF Jonathan ON
...
86' Glen cuts inside from the right but his shot is just dragged wide. Albino would've had no chance with that one had it been on target. Aizawl hang on. 
...
86' Substitution for Bengaluru

Alwyn OFF Sawmtea ON
...
85' Danmawia goes into the referee's book for a tired challenge on Jhingan, who has motored forward with good energy today. 
...
83' Tired legs are evident here from Aizawl as they lack the cutting edge in attack. They need every ounce of their energy in the game's dying minutes. 7 minutes of regulation time remaining.  
...
82' Bengaluru are trying to play keep ball deep inside Aizawl's half but the I-League champions are having none of it as they pull forward in another attack. 
...

...
74' Chance for Bengaluru!

Counter attack from the Blues here as Khabra finds Glen, who twists and turns but fails to get his shot away as Zotea deals with the Trinidadian World Cupper well. Aizawl have left themselves vulnerable at the back as they go all out for an equaliser. 
...
74' Chance for Bengaluru!

Watson's corner is met by Johnson but the English defender heads the ball over the bar. 
...
71' Teams have headed to the technical area for a water break. It's been a professional display from Roca's Bengaluru so far, keeping Aizawl at a fair distance from their goal. 
...
69' Will Aizawl script a comeback here? 20 minutes plus stoppage time remain and a single Aizawl goal will force extra time. 
...
67' Al Amna goes past Lenny but can't pass Jhingan, who suffers a knock as he clears the ball away for a corner. Al Amna's corner is dealt well by Bengaluru's defence but Chullova connects with the second ball and shoots narrowly wide of target.

...
58' Bengaluru have taken a leaf out of Aizawl's book by sitting on their one-goal lead and soaking the pressure before springing counters. Aizawl have looked far from being at their creative best today as Kamo has been expertly shielded so far. Aizawl need more presence up top. 
...
54' Bengaluru look more composed in attack as another counter leads to a dangerous cross which is miscues away for a corner by Danmawia. Watson's corner is a poor one and Aizawl survive. 
...
52' Confusion inside the Aizawl box as Chullova chests the ball away for a Bengaluru corner. Watson takes it but Albino tips the ball away before being fouled in the scramble. Freekick Aizawl. 
...
49' Al Amna is booked for a blatant dive!

The Syrain tries to force matters but his attempt to earn a penalty is too desperate for the referee's liking and Aizawl's midfielder gets the yellow card.
...
48' Shot from Aizawl!

Chullova receives the ball on the right halfspace but the full-back's shot from 30 yards goes high and wide. 
...
47' Aizawl are trying to change the direction of their attacks quickly in the 2nd half, but Kamo up front is hopelessly outnumbered by Bengaluru's three-man defence. 
...
46' And we are underway in the 2nd half with Bengaluru leading 1-0.

...

...
43' Chance for Aizawl!

Amrinder comes out to reach a long diagonal ball from Amna but the goalkeeper's clearance is weak and allows Rane to take a cross-shot which goes narrowly over Brandon's head. Nervy moments at the back for the Blues as Aizawl inch closer to the equaliser.
...
41' Penalty appeals from Bengaluru as Vineeth fails to get the better of Kingsley and goes down inside the box. The referee waves play on as Bengaluru are frustrated. 
...
39' Chance for Bengaluru!

Watson hit the post with a curler from outside the box. His shot came off a deflection, but it was well created by Bengaluru. Lyngdoh fails to connect properly with the rebound as Aizawl escape.
...
36' Chullova and Amrinder come together in pursuit of a loose ball and both players have gone down for treatment. 
...
33' Danmawia almost reaches a chipped ball but the Mizo star is flagged offside. Aizawl have looked to bypass Bengaluru's block defence with aerial passes. 
...
31' Chance for Bengaluru here as Lenny almost sneaks in to connect with a harmless long ball as Albino and his Aizawl teammates slacked off for a moment. The I-League champions switch on to deny Vineeth from the loose ball. 
...
28' Bengaluru's early goal has rendered this game less cagey and more entertaining. It's been almost end-to-end so far as both teams look to refresh with a short water break. Watson's penalty is the difference so far. Bengaluru 1-0 Aizawl. 
...
26' Chance for Aizawl!

Lalruatthara finds Kamo unmarked with a cross but the Ivorian's free header is woefully wide off the mark. What a chance for the Reds!
