19:30 (IST)25 NOV 2017

FULL TIME! What a match this has been. Mohun Bagan had dominated in the first half, but that counted for little, as Minerva came back in the second half, as they knocked hard on the Mariners' door. They finally managed to get the equaliser through a Moinuddin goal. Minerva gave it a mighty effort in the end, and came out with the point that they wanted. Title favourites Mohun Bagan, on the other hand, would have to find their way back to the drawing board, to iron out their defensive errors.

19:24 (IST)25 NOV 2017

And with that, referee Umesh Bora blows his whistle to signal full time!

19:24 (IST)25 NOV 2017

94 - Kromah launches one final attack, plays it to Sony, who plays it back to him. Kromah then tried to play it back to Faiaz on the right flank, but it was too long.

19:22 (IST)25 NOV 2017

93 - Substitution for Minerva. Kamalpreet comes on for Kassim.

19:21 (IST)25 NOV 2017

92 - Its been all helter-skelter in these dying minutes, as both sets of players just hoove the ball up-field.

19:21 (IST)25 NOV 2017

90 - 3 minutes of injury time added on!

19:19 (IST)25 NOV 2017

89 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! Moinuddin levels the scores with just a few minutes to go! MB defence failed to negotiate a long throw, as the ball bobbled around in their box. Moinuddin finally latched on to it, and slotted it into the top corner to level the scores.

19:17 (IST)25 NOV 2017

87 - Minerva are stringing a few passes together, in an attempt to get back into the game. However, Mohun Bagan have already put enough bodies behind the ball.

19:14 (IST)25 NOV 2017

85 - Kromah breaks into the opposition area via an aerial through ball, but is soon flagged offside. 

19:12 (IST)25 NOV 2017

82 - Sony Norde shows a brilliant burst of pace, as he surges into the box, and flashes the ball across the face of the goal, towards an unmarked Faiaz on the far post. However, the substitute could not get a touch onto that from close range. Had he managed to get a touch there, they would surely have increased MB's lead to 2-0

19:10 (IST)25 NOV 2017

81 - Gurjinder wins another corner for MB. This corner is cleared as well, and the Mariners get a throw in

19:09 (IST)25 NOV 2017

80 - Gurjinder swings it in, but it is cleared.

19:08 (IST)25 NOV 2017

79 - Kromah gets on the ball in the opposition half, and plays it in to Faiaz. Although the latter is closed down, he manages to win a corner for MB

19:06 (IST)25 NOV 2017

77 - Substitution for Minerva -- Moinuddin comes on for Girik

19:05 (IST)25 NOV 2017

75 - Faiaz plays an aerial ball through ball to Kromah in the box, as the forward goes down. The Mohun Bagan players immediately turn to the referee, looking for a penalty. However, referee Umesh Bora simply gives a wry smile and asks Kromah to get back on his feet.

19:03 (IST)25 NOV 2017

73 - Its been real helter-skelter int he last few minutes. The high-octane game that we saw in the last 10 minutes seems to have fizzled out, now.

18:59 (IST)25 NOV 2017

69 - Kassim releases Chencho down the left flank, as the Bhutanese winger fizzes in a low cross across the face of the goal. Unfortunately for Minerva, and fortunately for MB, the ball missed everyone, and rolled away, across the face of the goal.

18:57 (IST)25 NOV 2017

67 - Some respite for MB, as Kingsley is brought down in the MB half, and the Mariners get a free kick

18:55 (IST)25 NOV 2017

66 - Sanjoy Sen makes a substitution, bringing SK Faiaz on for Lyngdoh.

18:54 (IST)25 NOV 2017

65 - Chencho wins a corner, as he tries to dribble past Gurjinder into the Bagan box. However, the ex-Minerva man muscled him away.

18:53 (IST)25 NOV 2017

64 - Minerva are knocking, and they are knocking hard on the Mohun Bagan defence. Chencho is played through on the left, as he enters the box with pace, but Kingshuk clears the danger.

18:50 (IST)25 NOV 2017

61 - Now, Kromah gets the ball on the edge of the Minerva area, dummies, and shoots. However, his shot whistles over the bar.

18:49 (IST)25 NOV 2017

59 - Chance! Second half substitute Lago gets a golden chance, as he gets the ball inside the box, from a corner, but his shot only goes on to rebound off the post. However, Lago got the ball again on the rebound, but his successive shot was well over the bar.

18:47 (IST)25 NOV 2017

57 - Minerva break again, and Aidara heads it through to an unmarked Deepak inside the box. Shiton Paul rushed out of his line, and that seemed to be enough to put the Minerva man off.

18:46 (IST)25 NOV 2017

56 - Long throw by Minerva, as the ball takes a couple deflection, and falls at the feet of Deepak, who shoots it over the bar from 6 yards out.

18:44 (IST)25 NOV 2017

55 - Opoku swings it in, but it is headed away by the Bagan defence.

18:43 (IST)25 NOV 2017

54 - Aidara tries to break from the left side, but Gurjinder gets in a rash tackle, and earns himself a booking. Can Minerva use this free kick to get back in the game?

18:42 (IST)25 NOV 2017

54 - And we are back. Apologies for the delay.

18:36 (IST)25 NOV 2017

48 - We seem to be facing some technical difficulties at the moment. Do bear with us, while we sort this out.

18:34 (IST)25 NOV 2017

46 - And we're back for the second half, as Minerva Punjab get the proceedings underway.

18:23 (IST)25 NOV 2017

Half Time! And with that, we come to the end of the first half. It has been a brilliant half for Mohun Bagan, who have hogged possession of the ball. Sanjoy Sen seems to have completely changed his side around from the previous seasons, as the Mariners hogged possession of the ball, and dominated the proceedings. Although they looked to be lacking a bit of sharpness in the final third, the brilliance of Sony Norde helped them out towards the end of the first half.

For Minerva, however, its back to the drawing board. They have been completely outplayed in this half, and need to find a way back into this game. Fortunately for them, they are only one goal down.

18:18 (IST)25 NOV 2017

45 - 2 minutes of injury time have been added on.

18:16 (IST)25 NOV 2017

43 - GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its that man again -- SONY NORDE! He breaks down the middle and cuts past three defenders at great pace, enters the box from the right side, and rifled it into the far bottom corner, to open the scoring! It took ISL 2017 3 matches to register its first goal, but Sony Norde has ensured that the same affair took only 43 minutes in the I-League.

18:14 (IST)25 NOV 2017

41 - The switch in the flanks has opened some space for Lyngdoh, who gets it on the half volley on the edge of the Minerva area. He pulled the trigger with an almighty effort, but his shot was so high that we are afraid it might end up crashing a UFO.

18:12 (IST)25 NOV 2017

40 - There seems to have been a bit of a change of flanks between Sony and Lyngdoh. The Mohun Bagan captain is now playing on the right wing.

18:10 (IST)25 NOV 2017

37 - Chance! Dicka enters the box from the left, does a couple of stepovers, and crosses it in. The ball takes a deflection and headed towards Sony. However, the Haitian had his back towards goal, and tried to get a back-header in, but it was too weak to trouble Arshdeep.

18:07 (IST)25 NOV 2017

35 - Corner for MB!  Sony plays an accurate corner this time, to Dicka, near the penalty spot, but a Minerva leg managed get a touch on the ball, and divert it just enough, to put Dicka off

18:05 (IST)25 NOV 2017

34 - Chencho breaks with great speed, down the left flank. The Mohun Bagan defence was well and truly caught napping, there. He crosses it in, but Shilton Paul is there on the spot, to smother the ball.

18:04 (IST)25 NOV 2017

32 - Raynier has been very calm and collective in the middle of the park. He showed some deft touches to keep hold of the ball.

18:03 (IST)25 NOV 2017

31 - There's only one suspect for taking this free kick -- Sony Norde! He lines up the shot, but the ball just doesn't dip after crossing the wall. It mere sails high over the bar. That was poor by the Haitian's standards.

18:01 (IST)25 NOV 2017

30 - Dicka tries to play Kromah in with a deft touch, but is brought down at the edge of the area. Free Kick to MB!

17:59 (IST)25 NOV 2017

27 - Whatever momentum Minerva had, seems to have gone away now, as the Mariners are bossing it in the middle of the park. The away side has kept 67 % possession of the ball.

17:58 (IST)25 NOV 2017

26 - Lyngdoh on the left flank, as he tries to play an aerial through ball to Kromah, but keeper Arshdeep manages to nip that danger in the box.

17:56 (IST)25 NOV 2017

25 - Norde plays a short free kick to Gurjinder on the left flank, as the fullback crosses it in. However, his cross is too long.

17:55 (IST)25 NOV 2017

24 - Sony tries to cut past Chencho, but the Bhutanese forward brings him down. Free Kick to MB.

17:55 (IST)25 NOV 2017

23 - Three consecutive corners for Mohun Bagan,, but Gurjinder fails to put any of them into the danger areas

17:53 (IST)25 NOV 2017

21 - Sony cuts in from the left, plays it to Kromah, who plays it back to him, as the Haitian lines up his shot. However, it is too high.

17:51 (IST)25 NOV 2017

20 - Corner for MB! Sony Norde floats it in towards the first post, but it is headed away.

17:50 (IST)25 NOV 2017

18 - Although Mohun Bagan are on the back foot, Lyngdoh hounds the Minerva defenders, and wins the ball back for his side.
