Thank you for joining us. That's it from us for today. Join us again on Sunday for more action from the Federation Cup.

Till then, good night and good bye.
...
This means that we have a Kolkata Derby in our hands for the semis as Mohun Bagan and East Bengal square off on Sunday.

But before that I-League champions will look to add to their glory this season when they take on Bengaluru in the first semi-final.
...
Alwyn George with the opener which Debjit would be really disappointed to have conceded.

But this game produced one of the goals of the tournament as Sony Norde again produced another moment of magic with a delightful goal to bring Bagan level.
...
AND THAT'S IT!

It's all done here at Cuttack. Mohun Bagan ends as the champions of Group B. Bengaluru also go through to the semis.
...
90+2' - Len down on the ground as the clocks ticks away.
...
90+1' - Last change for Mohun Bagan.

Pritam Kotal IN! Subhashish Bose OUT!
...
90' - SHOT!

Sehnaj finds Gaekwad on the right who swings an awkward ball in. Lewis recovers that swings a second ball into the box. Falls to Sehnaj at the edge of the box. He makes sweet contact on the half volley but that is straight at Amrinder.

Katsumi tries to get onto the rebound but he is offside.
...
90' - A moment of hope as Katsumi makes a run. But a good tackle from Lenny and Bagan build again.
...
89' - A long punt into the box and finds Jeje who tries to direct it to Kean Lewis who has shifted the left. But he can't get anywhere near that.
...
88' - Bagan finally moving forward but only momentarily. I am going to be surprised if this doesn't really end 1-1.
...
87' - A momentary lapse in concentration and Len nearly gets in but Eduardo again there to clear the danger.
...
86' - Bagan seems to have put the game on auto-pilot mode. Passing it amongst themselves at the back.
...
85' - NIshu Kumar with a run and a shot. But that is well blocked. Bagan seems to be done going forward but they are sharp as ever at the back.
...
84' -  Subhashish with a long ball and a totally directionless one at that. 
...
83' -  STRONG!

Udanta tries to make a move on the right But Subhashish is strong in the tackle. 
...
82' -  Ball from back over the top looking to find Jeje but he is clearly offside. The man from Mizoram seems miffed but really has no reasion to.
...
81' - BFC makes their last change.

Nishu Kumar IN! Alwyn George OUT!
...
80' -  Lenny goes back to Salam Ranjan who tries to play a ball down the right. Cut off by Bikramjit.
...
79' -  The pace of the game has really gone down now. The movement of the players look lethargic and nothing other than long balls seemingly being played.
...
77' - MB playing simple passes at the back. Both teams are going through at the moment and they seem content.

Finally, a crossfield long ball played looking for Prabir. Nowhere near him and Khabra heads back to the keeper.
...
76' - BFC finally seeing some ball as Len runs and tries to get a ball in from the right. But his cross is deflected and into the gleeful arms of Debjit.
...
75' - And a yellow card.

Len loses his cool there. Poor decision from the assistant referee has really angered and he kicks the ball away in anger. Gets booked for the misdemeanour.
...
74'- Ball finally is intercepted by Malsawmzuala. He tries to play in Len but Eduardo shadows him and puts it out.

Inexplicably the linesman points for a goalkick.
...
73' -  Bagan with a free kick now as Sehnaj is fouled. The Mariners playing keep-ball.
...
72' - Katsumi tries to get into the box but good work from Salam Ranjan and John Johnson on hand to clear that.
