Bagan did pretty well to come back after conceding an early goal, but their AFC Cup 2017 campaign ends in a far from a satisfactory note. In what was a paddy field of a pitch, a 1-1 result in a game delayed by rain just about sums up the Mariners' AFC Cup 2017 campaign. That's all from us here. Until next time, goodbye!
...
Full-time: Mohun Bagan 1-1 Abahani
...
90+3' Katsumi with another effort, this time from a narrow angle, which is tipped away for a corner. The corner is wasted though, and with it goes Bagan's chance of snatching a winner. 
...
90+1' 3 minutes stoppage time added. 
...
90' Katsumi with a brilliant run from left wing to the edge of the Abahani box but his shot sails over the bar. 
...
87' Last few minutes of the match remain here. Bagan are pushing for the winner here. 
...
82' GOOOAAALLL FOR BAGAN!

Katsumi slots home the penalty straight down the middle of Sohel's goal as the Mariners equalise. 1-1
...
81' PENALTY TO BAGAN!

What a chance for the Mariners to equalise after Jeje is brought down inside the box!
...
76' Corner count: Bagan 1-6 Abahani
...
75' Another glorious opportunity missed by Bagan as Sourav's headed cutback has no one at the end to apply a finishing touch. 
...
74' Jeje with a chance for Bagan but the striker shoots straight at Sohel, who gathers the ball comfortably. Duffy has worked hard this half without much reward. Jeje should at least have tested the Abahani goalkeeper with his attempt. Bagan 0-1 Abahani. 
...
72' Chance for Abahani but Brown blazes over with a first-time effort. 
...
69' Mid-way through the 2nd half, Katsumi has been at the heart of everything Bagan has done in an attacking sense, but Abahani have been solid at the back so far, aided by the paddy field of a pitch. 
...
66' Chance for Bagan!

Duffy cuts inside and arrows in a curling effort but the ball goes narrowly wide. Bagan still trail 1-0. 
...
66' Shot count: Bagan 2-5 Abahani
...
64' Goalline clearance from Sehnaj!

Abahani nearly double their​lead but for Sehnaj's intervention at the 11th hour. Bagan survive.
...
63' Bagan are ramping up the pressure now. Most of the action is in the Abahani half but there's little in the way of end product from the Mariners. 
...
61' Katsumi floats in a first time looped ball into the path of Duffy but the striker and his captain aren't on the same page. 
...
58' Emeka has been the most impressive performer today. Another shot is dragged wide here but at least Abahani are firing in attempts, unlike the Mariners. 
...
56' Quick feet from Emeka deceive Kingshuk, who conceded a freekick in a dangerous area. Bagan clear the danger as Brown's delivery is straight at Souvik. 
...
Corner count: Bagan 1-4 Abahani
...
52' Duffy races clear but the Brit's cutback to Katsumi is dealt with easily by Abahani as the ball stops in a puddle. 
...
50' Emeka and Brown try to create something but the Welshman's cross-shot is off target. 
...
48' Katsumi is fouled here by Miah and earns a freekick. It's a quickly taken set piece which results in a chance for Sehnaj but the midfielder blasts over. 
...
46' Bikramjit gets an early booking for a push in an aerial duel.
