East Bengal 2-2 Mohammedan Sporting, FULL TIME


17:01 (IST)16 SEP 2017

That's it from us today. Thanks for joining us.

We will be back again with more enthralling action from the CFL in the days to come.

17:00 (IST)16 SEP 2017

This might just go down to the wire with the Kolkata derby set for the 24th of September.

16:59 (IST)16 SEP 2017

So after seven games each, both Mohun Bagan and East Bengal have 19 points each. 

16:59 (IST)16 SEP 2017

This was as enthralling as it gets.

It looked ominous for MDS to begin with as Al Amna scored with EB's first attack. But MDS fought back well. 

Murmu with a great game alongside Dicka and Ogba. 

But Plaza, who had another anonymous game till then came up trumps when it mattered with the equaliser.

16:56 (IST)16 SEP 2017

This means that East Bengal drop their first points of the CFL season ahead of the derby.

16:55 (IST)16 SEP 2017

Finally, the game ends!

After 10 minutes of added time and justified so. 

16:54 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+9' - Tirthankar is fouled and that means another man in black and white rolling on the ground.

16:54 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+8' - Satyam Sharma with the ball. Deep and that is played back in by Dicka. 

But EB clear.

16:53 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+7' - Jiten Murmu has had a brilliant game.

Great dribble to get past Chullova and then he is brought down by the left back.

16:52 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+2' - Long ball from Al Amna looking for Gabriel.

But Shankar comes out in time and gets the ball at its highest point.

16:51 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+6' - Shankar Roy down again.

16:51 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+5' - Ball from the right from Surabuddin. 

To the back post. But the ref's whistle goes off for a foul on the defender.

16:49 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+4' - A long ball from the back sees the sphere go to Shankar Roy's arms.

16:49 (IST)16 SEP 2017

90+3' - Finally the game is underway. 

A failed attack results in a goal kick for East Bengal.

16:47 (IST)16 SEP 2017

A break on the pitch again as the players are taking in some fluids again.

16:47 (IST)16 SEP 2017

Some scuffle on the sideline now as the Mohammedan camp was not happy with the tackle.

16:45 (IST)16 SEP 2017

89' - Not a great free kick and MDS clear. 

And this time Ogba on the end of a bad tackle. And it is Mitchell who is the culprit over here.

16:44 (IST)16 SEP 2017

88' - Foul by Kalu Ogba on Rafique.

16:42 (IST)16 SEP 2017


Willis Plaza with the goal. Great one-touch ball from Lobo found Plaza. And what a hit!

Shankar Roy was beaten just from the pace of the shot. 

16:42 (IST)16 SEP 2017

86' - More problems with dehydration on the ground as Mitchell looks down for the count.

16:41 (IST)16 SEP 2017

85' - Poor corner from Lobo. Has no height or pace. Easily cleared.

16:41 (IST)16 SEP 2017

84' - Surabbudin with a great run down the right. But his cross is deflected out for a corner.

16:39 (IST)16 SEP 2017

83' - NEARLY!

Mohammedan could have sealed that. Satyam Sharma with a timely interception. He was through on goal and had only Barreto in front of him. 

But he hits it wide of the mark. Could have taken a few more touches there.

16:37 (IST)16 SEP 2017

82' - Gabriel with the corner. Chullova with a great flick on but off target.

16:36 (IST)16 SEP 2017

81' - Ball from the right this time. To the back post and that is headed back into a dangerous area. But MDS clear it for a corner.

16:35 (IST)16 SEP 2017

80' - Al Amna switches play from the left to the right. 

But EB get a throw in the end.

16:34 (IST)16 SEP 2017

79' - Surabuddin with the shot!

But that is way off the mark.

16:33 (IST)16 SEP 2017

78' - Al Amna with a great run down the edge of the right side of the box. Gets the ball into a dangerous area. But Shankar Roy quickly on to it.

16:32 (IST)16 SEP 2017

77' - MDS down the right. And Faiaz with a fizzing cross into the middle. But Arnab Mondal is there with a vital touch.

16:31 (IST)16 SEP 2017

75' - Mawia, the man who hit the post twice comes off for Surabuddin Mallick.

16:31 (IST)16 SEP 2017

74' - Gabriel Fernandes with a great run down the right. He is, however, barged off the ball. But no penalty was given as it was a legal body check according to the referee.

16:29 (IST)16 SEP 2017


The clearance from the corner leads to Faiaz running at the EB defence with pace. He gets past his man and then cracks a great shot on goal. Barreto, however, low down to his right. 

Parries it away.

16:27 (IST)16 SEP 2017

71' - Corner from the right for EB. But that was well cleared.

16:27 (IST)16 SEP 2017

69' - Shankar Roy down again with cramps.

16:26 (IST)16 SEP 2017

68' - Chullova with a great ball from the left. Shankar Roy came out but got nothing over there. But no EB player there as well.

16:23 (IST)16 SEP 2017

67' - GOAAAAAL!!

Dickaaaaaa with the goal. And Mohammedan lead now.

Murmu with a great run down the right and then his low ball square into the box is greeted with the run of Dipanda Dicka. 

16:23 (IST)16 SEP 2017

66' - Not a great ball and MDS clear before Plaza commits a foul.

16:22 (IST)16 SEP 2017

65' -  Free kick to EB.

And Kamran can count himself lucky. Already on a yellow and he brought Al Amna down there. The referee has a last warning for him

16:20 (IST)16 SEP 2017

64' - SHOT!

Plaza is found in space by Al Amna who takes the shot. But that is just wide.

16:19 (IST)16 SEP 2017

63' - EB clear from the corner. But come out to Kalu Ogba. He fakes a shot and gets past the backline. He then crosses it to Faiaz at the back post. But a tad too overhit.

16:18 (IST)16 SEP 2017

61' - Cleared off the line. 

Mohammedan nearly had their second. Shot from Tirthankar came off Chullova and had looped over Barreto. But thankfully, Mitchell is there to head it away.

16:17 (IST)16 SEP 2017

60' - Great delivery from the corner but EB scramble that clear.

16:16 (IST)16 SEP 2017

59' - Joby Justin comes off as Gabriel Fernandes is sent out.

16:15 (IST)16 SEP 2017

58' - Murmu with a great run down the left. But he is met with a great tackle from Arnab.

A corner is the result.

16:14 (IST)16 SEP 2017

57' - Joby Justin down the right and he gets a ball in. But that is cleared at the near post.

16:13 (IST)16 SEP 2017


Third time East Bengal have hit the post. Willis Plaza gets past Gharami and then slots the ball past Shankar Roy. But again, the ball comes out after hitting the post.

16:10 (IST)16 SEP 2017

52' - East Bengal with a corner from the left. That is cleared and Murmu tries to run with the ball. But he is impeded by Samad Ali who is shown the yellow.

16:08 (IST)16 SEP 2017

51' - SHOT!

MDS again on the charge. Dowary with a shot from the left but Barreto gets down to the ball well.

16:07 (IST)16 SEP 2017

50' - MDS look to get down the right but Tirthankar's pass is misplaced. 

16:05 (IST)16 SEP 2017

The second half is underway.
