Thank you for joining us. 

Till next time! Goodbye! :)
...
Bagan's next game in the AFC Cup is again at home against Maziya on the 19th of April.
...
Mohun Bagan's next game is in the I-League as they square off against East Bengal in the fierce Kolkata derby. 

That will be a fight of both pride as well as points. East Bengal and Mohun Bagan lie in 2nd and 3rd places on the table respectively with only a point between them.

Bagan, however, have a game on their hand over their bitter rivals.
...
With the win, Bagan move to three points. They are now level with Maziya both in terms of points as well as goal difference.

However, with more goals scored, they now move into second position behind Bengaluru who top the group with two wins in two games.
...
Bagan players acknowledge the loyal fans who have again turned up in numbers.
...
PEEP! PEEP! PEEP! 


And that's it. Mohun Bagan have done it. The final score is 3-1.


...
90+4'-  Sony and Raju playing keep ball. 



...
90+3' -  Balwant makes another run and Sony's ball help him take the ball to the corner flag. Final whistle should be on the way.
...
90+2' -  Bagan letting Abahani keep the ball. That third goal really letting them relax.
...
90+1' -  And the final change for Abahani as well. 

Sohel Rana comes off for Imtiaz Sultan Jitu
...
Three minutes of time added on. Mohun Bagan should get their first three points of the AFC Cup.
...
89' -  Final change for Mohun Bagan. 

Jeje comes off for the youngster Robinson Singh.
...
87' - Clumsy foul on Bikramjit there. Signs of frustration creeping in the Abahani ranks. 


...
86' -  GOAAAAAAAAL! And that should seal it.

Sony Norde with the goal. Mohun Bagan strung together 20 odd passes in the move. Norde moved from left to the middle and then to the right. 

And finally when the ball fell to him. He dummied his first shot, created space and slots it home past a hapless keeper.

Balwant with the assist there.
...
85' - Not much threat from the ensuing corner as Abahani clear their lines.
...
84' - SAVE!

Great save by Sahidul low to his left as Katsumi punts in another attempt with his left foot.
...
83' -  And now a substitution for Abahani. 

Mohammed Al Mamun goes off for Miah Rubel Miya


...
82' - Sony plays a beautiful back heel for an overlapping Raju Gaekwad who crosses. Cleared for a throw in.
...
Bagan can smell three points here. But they need to keep focus.
...
81' - Ziban with another masquerading run for Dhaka. Takes three men to stop him. But the job is done.
...
80' -  Flat ball towards goal. But cleared.
...
79' -  Norde gets himself another freekick. Too quick for his man and the defender is called for obstruction.
...
78' -  And it's Balwant again. Prabir with a low ball in from the right. He slides in but fails to give it any direction.
...
77' - Balwant with a golden opportunity to put Bagan in the clear. But his shot has the direction but not the power. Parried away.
...
69' -  Delivery into the near post and Katsumi clears.
...
68' -  Ziban ekes out another corner for Abahani. Bagan need to keep their focus.
...
67' - So far so good for Bagan in the second half. But as saw in the earlier game today, you have to keep focus till the last minute.
...
And it's another sub for Mohun Bagan as Bikramjit Singh Jr comes on for Eduardo.
...
68' - Katsumi again sets up the Mohun Bagan counter with a blazing run. Plays in Balwant on the left. But he gives away a freekick.
...
66' -  SHOT! But wide.

On the other end. Balwant's run is met with a good ball. He pulls it back for Prabir. But his shot is off target.
...
66' -  Abahani threatening again. It's Ziban again toying with Gaekwad. Puts in a ball but can't find Emeka.
...
65' -  Mohun Bagan's all-rounder comes in. Prabir Das in for Bikramjit. Can he provide some spark.
...
64' -  EMEKAAAAA!!!

Emeka with some real trickery inside the box. But blazes the shot over on the volley.
...
63' -  WHAT ON EARTH WAS THAT!

Sony tries a Depay. This time from the free kick. 50 yards out and the Haitian tries to catch the GK out. The results? Let's just say "not that impressive"
...
62' - Sony gets a free kick after showing some trickery of his own.
...
61' -  WHAT A BALL! Brown gets a second chance after his initial free-kick is cleared. The ball grazes past the six-yard line. Any touch and that's in.
...
60'  -  Abahani starting to get on the ball. Create a bit more pressure as Raju Gaekwad now guilty of giving away a free kick.


...
58'  -  Free kick for Abahani near the halfway line. Brown with the kick but dealt with.
...
57' -  COMPOSED! Raju Gaekwad keeps his cool under pressure from James Brown after the Welshman's cross is blocked. The Mariners are looking so much better.
...
56'  - Another one floated in. And Sahidul is called into action again. Catching practice.
...
55' - Shot on the turn by Jeje. But that is BLOCKED!
...
But Mohun Bagan still in control in the second half.
...
53' - CLOSE! Sohel Rana with a shot from the left. But into the side netting. 

James Brown with a ball that was too long for Emeka. He chases it down. Finds Sohel's run. But that's a disappointing finish,
...
52' -  The crowd is back their full voice. Rampant shouts of "Mohun Bagan" from the stands.
...
51' -  Yusa with the corner. But yet again too close to the keeper.
...
50' -  Bagan looking more composed on the ball in the second half. Another cross comes in from the right and we have a corner.
...
48' - GOAAAAAAAL!!!! Mohun Bagan in the lead. Katsumi with another defence-splitting run. Tees up Balwant who keeps his composure and keeps it on target. And gives Bagan the lead.
...
46' - And we are off. 
...
The teams are back on the pitch. 

Mohun Bagan need to really pull their socks up if they are to get all three points from this one. With only one team qualifying from the group, this is a must win after Bengaluru's win earlier today.
...
Bagan caused a lot of problems for Bengaluru in the previous game down the right with Kotal overlapping Katsumi on every opportunity. 

Whilst Golui has tried his best got crosses in, he is just not at the same level.
