...
90+7' Britto PM is adjudged the 'Man of the Match' and there is the final whistle. It has finished ATK 1-1 Indian Navy. And, no one can be happier than Mohun Bagan fans here. Their team needs only a win against either of the teams in their next fixture and they will be through to the semi-finals. Here is Abhishek Kundu saying good-bye. Do stay tuned to Sportskeeda as we bring you extensive coverage of the Durand Cup, Calcutta Football League, and other Indian Football matches. 
...
90+4' And, we have another Indian Navy player down. It is Aoop who is down this time and even a couple of ATK players are down with a cramp. 
...
90+3' Indian Navy with their final change.

ON- Navjot Singh
OFF- Jijo F
...
90+3' OFFSIDE! Ankit Mukherjee is acres offside. Time is running short for ATK. 
...
90+2' Now, Jijo F is down injured. They have done so much injured and it is logical to think Indian Navy players would get injured. 
...
90' Five minutes added on. Plenty of time for ATK to make a comeback. 
...
87' Prabir Das steps up to take the spot-kick. And, he makes it one-all. The 'keeper dives towards his left but Prabir places it in the right. Game on, now. 
...
86' PENALTY to ATK! A handball by Vivekananda. And, ATK has got a golden opportunity to equalize.
...
85' Finally Cavin Lobo surges forward but his eventual pass is cleared away for a corner kick, from which ATK can do nothing. 
...
84' Another Indian Navy player Pradeesh goes out on a stretcher. Only six minutes remains on the game. Can Indian Navy hold on to the lead with tired legs?
...
82' Indian Navy with another change. The goalscorer comes out on a stretcher. Had a fantastic game today.  

OFF- Harikrishna
ON- Benno Ba
...
81' SAVE! A fierce strike from Ashish Pradhan from just outside the box but the 'keeper was at the right position at the right time and keeps the scoreline intact. 

...
80' ATK makes their final change. A defender for a winger. 

OFF- Komal Thatal
ON- Ankit Mukherjee
...
78' Well, Cavin Lobo is playing the holding midfielder role. Nothing will come out of it. He needs to go further up in the field. 
...
76' SAVE! And, Indian Navy's player takes a free-kick from way behind and Britto PM is one-on-one with the 'keeper but his first-time effort is thwarted away by ATK's Avilash Paul. 
...
74' Indian Navy doing playacting from the last five minutes. Army Red tried something similar against East Bengal and they failed. But, going by the run of play, I won't be surprised if Indian Navy succeeds against ATK tonight. 
...
72' OFFSIDE! Indian Navy tries to lob a long ball all the way from the defense line to the striker but the assistant raises his flag. 
...
69' No, it is Samte who takes it. But, the left footer's shot kisses the netting from above and Indian Navy have a goal-kick now. 
...
68' ATK again have a free-kick from a dangerous position. William is fouled just from outside the box. And, this time Cavin Lobo steps up to take it. Can he bring ATK back to the game?
...
67' And, ATK finally brings in Cavin Lobo. Much needed change from the ISL outfit.

ON- Cavin Lobo
OFF- Malsawmzuala
...
65' SHOT! Jijo F flies a belter from just outside the box seeing the ATK 'keeper out of his line. But, his shot is inches above the crossbar. 
...
64' TACKLE! Harikrishna tries something similar this time against ATK's Salam Ranjan Singh but the Indian international stands strong. 
...
63' Indian Navy's Harikrishna doing everything here. He shrugs off Anil Chavan's challenge but takes the ball near the byline and makes the angle much narrower. His eventual shot is of no danger to the ATK 'keeper. 
...
61' No, not at all. Gopi Singh flies the ball away. The Indian Navy players didn't even bother to jump as they knew it was flying away nonetheless. 
...
60' ATK have a dangerous chance to get back into the game. They have a free-kick from just outside the box. The exact spot from where Jaime Santos Colado scored for East Bengal. Can Gopi Singh do the same for ATK?
...
59' CHANCE! Another teasing cross from Indian Navy's Harikrishna but Avilash Paul plucks it from the air. 
...
58' Things are getting tougher for ATK. They have no control in the midfield so far. They need someone like Cavin Lobo in the game. Why isn't he still on the pitch?
...
55' ATK makes its first change.

ON- William
OFF- Ashish Jha
...
53' Britto makes an excellent run and is one-on-one with full back Prabir Das. The latter wins it and the forthcoming cross is collected comfortably by the goalkeeper. 
...
50' ATK are taking it too long to build on the counter. They need to quicken things up here. 
...
47' The reason why Indian Navy are up front here because they are playing as a team. ATK players, on the other hand, are trying to take everyone at once, playing selfish. They are successful in going past one or two players. But, the third player steals the ball and they again go on the backfoot. 
...
46' Welcome back to the second half in the ATK vs Indian Navy match here at the Durand Cup. ATK gets the ball rolling here. 
...
45' PEEP! PEEP! Half time whistle blows here and it is advantage Indian Navy. ATK needs to do some serious thinking if they want to get something out of this game. 
...
44' Indian Navy are now just rolling the ball amongst themselves. They are happy going 1-0 in the half-time. 
...
43' Prabir Das with a good cross from just in front of the halfway line. But, Indian Navy defenders are better in the air and the danger is averted. 
...
41' Another wasteful effort. This time from Samte. ATK needs to buckle up in case they want to get a point. 
...
38' Indian Navy guys are controlling the midfield. Won't be surprised if ATK ends up losing the game. This group is proving to be a group of death. Only one from Mohun Bagan, Mohammedan, ATK, and Indian Navy will advance. 
...
35' ATK have a free-kick. And, Ashish Pradhan wastes it. He goes for glory from 45 yards instead of giving a cross. All the players are frustrated here. 
...
33' CHANCE! Abhishek with a wonderful free-kick and finds the widest player. He cuts it in for another Indian Navy player, the goalkeeper collects it, fumbles, an Indian Navy striker takes a shot but ATK's Prabir Das makes a goal-line clearance. All drama here at the VYBK Stadium in Kolkata. 
...
29' Indian Navy have fallen all back. ATK are finding it tough to break them. Indian Navy, on the other hand, are finding it easy to attack on the counter. So far, the game is proceeding as Indian Navy wants. 
...
27' Pradeesh is one-on-one with the ATK goalkeeper but Avilash Paul puts his body on the line to keep the scoreline 1-0. 
...
26' ATK have a corner but Malsawmzuala's cross is collected comfortably. 
...
25' A teasing cross from the left-wing but an Indian Navy player clears the ball momentarily. Prabir Das latches on the rebound but his effort sails way above the crossbar. 
...
23' Well, ATK are just lobbing the ball upfront meaninglessly. Indian Navy is having no problems in clearing the danger. They need to buckle up otherwise they are not getting a goal back. 
...
19' GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLL! And, guess what? Indian Navy has taken the lead. Sarabjit passes the ball towards Harikrishna who beats the offside trap, takes out the 'keeper with his first touch, and cushions the ball into the back of the net. 
...
14' ATK are all lively in the final third but is unable to find the final pass. It is still 0-0 here. 
...
12' Goal-line clearance! ATK's Prabir Das heads goalbound and the goalkeeper is down but Indian Navy's defender heads it away. 
...
11' A long ball from Salam Ranjan Singh towards Komal Thatal but the defender steals the ball away. 
...
9' A teasing ball from ATK's Yumnam Gopi Singh but the 'keeper collects it comfortably. 
...
7' Well, Indian Navy have more supporters here than ATK! Didn't expect that.
