17:54 (IST)9 DEC 2017

22' - MIRSHAD ALMOST MESSED THAT UP!! Samuela takes a long-range free-kick and Mirshad came out but misjudged the flight and somehow managed to palm it away to safety. The ball is again put in by the Lajong side and Mirshad saves to palm the ball over for a corner.

17:42 (IST)9 DEC 2017

10' - OH SO CLOSE!! Al-Amna breaks through from the right dodging past a couple of Lajong defenders and squares it in for Plaza who wastes a good chance as he takes too much time to unleash the shot and Odafin reaches it before the effort. The Kolkata crowd express their disappointment in the striker.

17:39 (IST)9 DEC 2017

8' - First corner won by Al-Amna for East Bengal. Yusa puts it in but somehow Shillong manage to clear the danger away for another corner kick as Cavin Lobo runs to take it.

17:38 (IST)9 DEC 2017

17:32 (IST)9 DEC 2017

1' - An early free-kick for Shillong as Arnab Mondal gives it away. Samuela takes a speculative shot and did well but Mirshad saw it through over the goal. Goal-kick for the home side.
