...
That's all from us here. We will be back tomorrow for more Federation Cup action. Until then, goodbye!
...
So, defending champions Bagan open their Federation Cup account with a 4-0 thrashing of DSK Shivajians. 
...
90+2' Jeje applies the finishing touches to a fine performance from Bagan.  
...
90+2' GOAL FOR BAGAN
...
90+1' DSK have tried hard in the 2nd half but their lack of quality in finishing has been evident. Bagan, meanwhile, have been pretty ruthless with their finishing.
...
90+1' 2 minutes of stoppage time added.
...
88' Substitution for Bagan

Anas OFF Bikramjit ON
...
84' Bagan were nearly punished by Chhangte as a lapse in communication between Shilton and Anas opened a chance for the youngster. Anas, however, takes control of the situation before putting the ball out for a corner.
...
80' What a match for Balwant Singh as he trudges off the pitch. The striker proved a real nuisance to DSK's defence and was well worth his brace of goals. 
...
80' Substitution for Bagan

Balwant OFF Kean Lewis ON
...
79' Sony Norde is now showing off here by pulling off all the tricks as Bagan try to play the game at cruising pace. With about 10 more minutes to go, the Mariners have all but sealed the win.
...
79' DSK nearly score but a couple of ricochets don't help the losing side's cause. Kim Song Yong looks dejected with his missed chance.
...
73' Substitution for Bagan

Duffy OFF Jeje ON
...
71' Balwant gets his brace with a fine first-time effort from the edge of the box after a brilliant bit of interplay down the right from his teammates. Bagan are now home and cruising with their 3-0 lead.
...
71' GOALL FOR BAGAN!
...
67' Chance for Bagan!

Bagan open up the DSK defence but Norde couldn't finish the opening. His shot after jumping two attempted blocks goes narrowly over Poirei's goal.
...
65' Duffy nods home from point-blank range after Norde's corner misses everybody. Bagan have a more comfortable 2-0 lead now.
...
65' GOAALLL FOR BAGAN
...
63' Substitution for DSK

Narzary OFF Chhangte ON
...
62' Quero shoots from way out but his effort goes high over the bar. DSK must do better than what they have produced so far. Quero tricks his way into another shooting position but once again shoots over.
...
60' Chance for Bagan!

Beautiful bit of interplay on the right between Sehnaj and Katsumi before Sehnaj's cross just evades Balwant's diving legs. Bagan are creating the better openings in this half.
...
57' Juan Quero jinks his way past one Bagan player before passing it out wide to Sanju to cross. Sanju's cross is woefully heavily hit as DSK pass up another chance to equalise.
...
55' Duffy is brought down as he tries to turn his marker. Norde is on the free-kick but his delivery ends with a DSK goal-kick.
...
53' Chance for Bagan!

Norde cuts inside from the left and unleashes a fierce right-footed shot which is kept away from heading into the net by Poirei's fingertips.
...
52' DSK are ramping up the pressure in the 2nd half. Bagan have survived for now, but the Pune outfit should make their ascendency count.
...
49' DSK have started the 2nd half on the front foot. They haven't allowed Bagan to settle into their rhythm so far while asking a few questions up top.
...
47' Narzary tries to go past three Bagan defenders with a run through the left flank, but the forward is outnumbered by his opponents.
...
46' We have kicked off in the 2nd half with DSK attacking from left to right.
...
Mohun Bagan 1-0 DSK Shivajians
Shots 11-3
Shots on target 7-2
Possession 55-45
Corners 6-2
...
Bagan have dominated the first half here at the Barabati Stadium. However, they have managed to score just a single goal despite their superiority. DSK will consider themselves fortunate to be just 1-0 down and a good second half performance could yet hand them a favourable result. The 2nd half kicks off in a few minutes, stay tuned.
...
Half-time

Mohun Bagan 1-0 DSK Shivajians
...
45+1' 1 minute stoppage time added.
...
43' Balwant seems to be enjoying here as another shot of his goes high and wide. The goalscorer cut infield upon receiving a throw-in before unleashing a pretty ordinary shot.
...
41' Milan Singh's shot is again wayward. DSK must take the chances they get but efforts like the one from Milan now won't cut it for the Shivajians.
...
38' Bagan are clearly dominating proceedings here, so much so that they are taking shots for fun. Pritam Kotal hits one from range but his effort flies well over.
...
35' Chance for DSK!

Milan Singh can't put the finishing touches on a fine DSK move. It was a great move from DSK, giving Bagan the scare again.
...
34' Chance for Bagan here as Balwant almost latches on to a long ball from Kotal. However, Poirei holds it.
...
32' Chance for DSK!

Quero slaloms past the Bagan defence from right to left before laying the ball off to Narzary but the Assamese forward's strike on goal hits Pritam Kotal. Bagan survive a rare scare from DSK.
...
29' DSK have been pretty unimaginative with their buildup play so far. They play a couple of sideways passes before eventually giving the ball away. Bagan's goal has clearly put the pressure on Dave Rogers' side to take the initiative.
...
27' Chance for Bagan!

Balwant has been really impressive so far. The striker cuts inside from the left before unleashing a fierce shot which is just parried away for a corner by Poirei.
...
24' Brilliant piece of play from Norde down the right as he gets the better of Jerry in a one-v-one before swinging in an inch-perfect cross for Balwant, who heads the ball from dead centre to give Bagan the lead. The Mariners clearly deserve their lead.
...
24' GOAALLL for Bagan!
...
21' Norde takes a free-kick from wide right, but his delivery, which looks good, is hit straight at Poirei in the DSK goal. The DSK goalkeeper has had a busy 21 minutes so far, but he has had only one save to make.
...
19' Norde with a shot from the right edge of the box as Bagan try to pick DSK's defence with a one-two between the Haitian and Balwant. The Mariners have to try out new things to break past this resolute DSK defence today.
...
16' Balwant takes on McFaul in a foot race but the defender wins the duel before clearing the ball out for a corner. Bagan are building the pressure here as DSK have defended all game.
...
14' DSK are intent on sitting back as they have fallen back to a 4-5-1 shape with extra protection on the wide areas. However, that isn't helping much as Duffy runs clear of Jerry before his shot across the goal is cleared for a corner. Bagan's set-piece is a wasted one, though.
...
13' Chance for Bagan!

Duffy's shot from the edge of the box is a good one but Poirei saves it low to his left. That's the best chance of the game so far.
...
12' DSK are using the long, chipped balls as their preferred mode of launching attacks. But Bagan's defensive pair of Eduardo and Anas have dealt with it well so far.
...
8' Katsumi has a chance to pull back after Duffy's pass found Jerry out of position. The Bagan captain's pullback, however, is cleared away by Sasa. It's been a cagey start to the match, with both sides testing each other out without going too gung-ho.
...
7' DSK with their 1st attack of the game as Sanju's cross from the right is too deep for Narzary to reach. Bagan start over again with a laser ball from Anas which goes out.
