Thanks for joining us. Meet us back on our page for the coverage of Mohun Bagan's first home encounter of this year's AFC Cup.
...
Bengaluru with 6 points, Maziya with 3. 


Mohun Bagan and Abahani Limited Dhaka are still to open their accounts in the group. 

They will square off at 7 PM.
...
And that means Bengaluru go top of Group E after two wins in as many matches. They, of course defeated Mohun Bagan in their last game.
...
90+4' -  Maziya with an attempt at goal from the kick-off and that is indeed the last kick of the game. What heartbreak for the Maldives side.
...
Has to be the winner.
...
90+3' - GOAAAAL!!! And we have a winner. Right at the death. Amrinder with the FK. Keeper comes. Fails to collect. Jugocvic prods it towards goal and John Johnson with a acrobatic finish.
...
90+3' -  And now a yellow for Sunil Chhetri. And that could have easily been red. He needs to keep his calm.
...
90 + 2' - Shouts of penalty. As Daniel goes tumbling to the ground. But that's rightly adjudged to be over exaggeration of the contact.

A yellow card for Watson as well. As he disagrees with the ref.
...
90+1 ' - All Maziya players behing the ball now.
...
Additional time of three minutes now being played out.
...
89' - MISS! A lovely one-two between Jugovic and Chhetri. The Serbian plays in the Indian skipper. But Chhetri miscues his volleyed attempt. That could have been the game.
...
88' - Careless free kick given away by Eugeneson Lyngdoh there. Signs of frustration creeping in.
...
87' -  BFC trying to build from the left. But Nishu Kumar is unable to get the better of his man.
...
86' -  John Johnson is penalised for grabbing on to Assadhulla. Dangerous position.

Rakic over the ball and tries a direct attempt on goal. Well over.
...
85' -  Khabra with an audacious ball down the right channel. But the keeper comes out and gathers with much ease.
...
Maziya making their final change. Yasfaadh Habeeb comes off for Mohamed Irufan.
...
82' -  John Johnson now. Crosses the half line. Tries to play in Jugovic. But the level of difficulty on that pass was just too much.
...
81' - Hussain Niyaz trying to make something happen down the right. But Nishu Kumar stands tall and sticks to his task.
...
80' - BFC make their final change. Harmanjot Singh Khabra comes on for Sandesh Jhingan.
...
79' -  NEARLY! Nishu Kumar bursts through the left. Crosses it in first time. But no BFC player can make a connection.
...
Nearly every Maziya player in their own half now. They will try and see this through.
...
77'- OVER! Jugovic with a shot. Not much backlift as there was no space. And the Serbian tries to dig it out. Well over the crossbar.
...
76' -  The corner is floated in. But the keeper comes out and punches it away.
...
75' -  Corner for BFC. Another run by Udanta who has done that all day. Earns his side another corner.
...
73' -  And NIshu is called into action. He thwarts a dangerous looking Maziya attack.
...
71' - A second change for Bengaluru as Salam Ranjan Singh is taken off. Nishu Kumar walks in.
...
68' - MISS! What a miss. A shot from the right by Assadhulla is palmed straight into an onrushing Umair. He goes for it with his head. But before he gets his head to it, Jhingan flies in and clears it via a last ditch tackle. That could be a game saver.
...
67' -  Daniel with space again at the edge of the box. The youngster shoots. But yet again, he is wide of the mark.
...
66' -  Maziya again counter. Assadullah picks up the ball and sprays it left for Rakic. But the Serbian can't get past Sandesh Jhingan.
...
64' - Rakic with a foray down the middle. Passes to Assadhulla. But he is offside.
...
63' -  A ball comes in from the right as Maziya tries to gather some much-needed momentum. But no one the middle.
...
63' - Meanwhile, Imaaz is getting stretchered off. And that's curtains for him. Hussain Niyaz comes on.

That's the second sub for Maziya.
...
61' -  Substitution for BFC as Jugovic replaces Lenny Rodrigues.

Roca going for it now. He knows that his team needs more firepower.
...
60' -  Daniel gives the ball away. Could have been dangerous. But Izaam's ball is weak and intercepted by Juanan.
...
59' -  Maziya with attack of their own down the left via Rakic. But his cross is a poor one. BFC on the prowl, again.
...
Bengaluru seem to have gone back to a more conventional back four with Jhingan as RB and Juanan as LB.
...
57' - CLOSE! Jhingan with another ball in from the right. Daniel turns and finds space to shoot. But that's not on target.
...
The homeside did make a change at the beginning of the second half. 

Miloš Kovačević went off for  Gasim Samaam


...
55' - Now a free-kick in a dangerous area for BFC. 

Watson over it. He tries to fool everyone and lifts it to Chhetri at the far post. But a foul is call in the wall.
...
53' - Lenny with a timely interception. Plays it out to Udanta. But his ball again lacks quality. Cleared away.
...
52' - Udanta with yet another run and a cross but that is way overhit.
...
50' - BLOCKED! First it is Daniel. Then Watson who see their shots blocked. The ball fall kindly for Juanan. But the Spaniard blazes over from near the penalty box on his weaker right foot.
...
49' -  Samaan is fouled near midfield. But a tam freekick from the homseide.
...
48' - Daniel is played in by a lovely ball from Jhingan who is quite a bit forward. The youngster twists and turns near the six yard box. Gets a ball in but cleared at the near post.
...
48' - Juanan tires to go down the left. But is well tackled.
...
47' - Long ball from the back. Could have been dangerous for BFC.  But Imaaz is offside.
...
And the hosts get us underway.
...
And now we have the home team coming out. 
...
The BFC team is already out in the middle. Can the defending I-League champions bring about a moment of magic in this game? They certainly did so in their last game.

The Southern Eagles went into halftime against Mohun Bagan down a goal. But turned the whole game around in the second forty-five as goals from Sandesh Jhingan and Sunil Chhetri helped Roca's men clinch all three points.
...
Bengaluru have been dominant in terms of possession in the opening forty-five. However, Roca's men have again showed a lack of cutting edge in the final third.

The hosts, however, had the best chances. A couple of good touches and they would have been in the clear by now.
