East Bengal had 8 shots on goal compared to 7 from Mohun Bagan. Both the teams had 5 shots on goal but what matters is the two goals that the Mariners managed to score.

The Red and Gold have been miserable when it comes to putting their chances away and that came back to haunt them today.

20:54 (IST)14 MAY 2017

This also means East Bengal will end the season without any silverware at the national stage. They began the I-League so well riding on the wave of positivity brought in by Trevor Morgan's appointment.

But it all began to fall away in the middle before they defeated Bengaluru and looked like they had it in them to go all the way. However, their wheels fell off late on and the defeat to Mohun Bagan in the second leg was the final nail in the coffin.

20:52 (IST)14 MAY 2017

And the final whistle blows.

Mohun Bagan win their second consecutive Kolkata Derby and this one ensures that Bagan book a place in the final where they will take on Bengaluru FC who defeated I-League champions 1-0 earlier today.

20:51 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90+4' - Gurwinder with a ball ahead for Robin Singh.

But Eduardo there again to head that away from danger.

20:50 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90+3' - The crackers have started to burst here at the stadium and EB seems to have lost all heart now.

20:50 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90+2' -  MB with their last change.

Souvik OUT! Bikramjit IN!

20:49 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90+2' - Ball in from Jairu and Yusa clears at the near post.

Bagan launch a counter of their own it's Jeje up their all alone. Katsumi finally provides an overlap but Jeje elects to come back in from the right and his shot off of his left foot is deflected and out for a corner.

20:48 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90+1' - PLAZAAA!!

Great run from the EB forward. He tries to play in Robin Singh. But Anas slides in. Out for a corner.

20:47 (IST)14 MAY 2017

Four minutes added on.

20:47 (IST)14 MAY 2017

90' - Balwant Singh, the best player in the game comes off.

Jeje Lalpekhlua IN! Balwant Singh OUT!

20:46 (IST)14 MAY 2017

89' - Crossfield ball from left to the right looking for Wedson Anselme. But Kotal is there and finally Prabir Das helps to clear the lines.

20:45 (IST)14 MAY 2017

88' - Bagan has no hurry in taking that. Katsumi comes and then Sony from the opposite flank. 

They waste some precious seconds there before Norde is flagged offside.

20:44 (IST)14 MAY 2017

86' - In between all the delirium Prabir Das has come in and he gets Bagan a free kick as he is shoved in the back by Narayan Das.

20:43 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Duffy with an excellent interception. He goes down the right and then cuts back to Katsumi. The skipper finds Sehnaj who plays in Yusa with a delightful ball.

Yusa waits and plays in a cross. Little behind Balwant but the forward sorts his body out and hits that on the fly and on the volley - his body parallel to the ground.

20:41 (IST)14 MAY 2017


The Red and Gold attack down the right!! Another long throw. 

20:40 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Jairu with another great ball from the right. It's for Wedson in the back post. He rises above Kotal but his header back into the box is blocked by Eduardo.

20:39 (IST)14 MAY 2017

80' - Bagan on the other end.

That attack leads to a Bagan break led by Sony Norde. He breaks down the left and then finds Balwant in the middle. He has Katsumi on the right totally free but instead, he goes for a shot.

And that is tame and into hands of Subhashis.

20:37 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Ball in from the right on the left from Jairu. Plaza finally gets his head to it and keeps it on target but Debjit with a fantastic save to keep it 1-0.

20:36 (IST)14 MAY 2017

78' - Bagan on the other side. Balwant into Katsumi and he goes to Kotal to swing in a cross but Narayan Das with a great block.

20:35 (IST)14 MAY 2017

77' -  Route 1 football from East Bengal.

They have the big men in now and Plaza heads it forward for Robin Singh to run into. But Anas is there to shepherd into the hands of the onrushing Debjit.

20:33 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Jairu's ball in into the far post. Plaza rises the highest again but can't get a proper connect.

20:33 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Into the far post this time but no EB player charging for this. Anas heads it clear for a corner.

20:32 (IST)14 MAY 2017

74' -  Anselme AGAIN!

Anselme with another great run. This time down the left. Goes past Kotal like he wasn't even there and then Sehnaj comes into foul him

20:30 (IST)14 MAY 2017

73' - Finally play is underway. But Debjit can't take the free kick. Launches it forward looking for Balwant.

20:30 (IST)14 MAY 2017

71' - Physio on the ground and the players are quick to see that Debjit doesn't swallow his tongue. He is wreathing in pain at the moment.

20:29 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Plaza goes in heavily and I mean HEAVILY on Debjit as he came out to collect a cross from the right. He is way late and has flattened the Bagan keeper. 

A mini scuffle breaks out but the players have kept a cool head.

20:27 (IST)14 MAY 2017


Kotal penalised for going up with hand leading the way. Mehtab with the ball from the left and he cheekily tries to finds the top corner of the back post. But is wide of the mark.

20:26 (IST)14 MAY 2017

68' - Sony tries to play in a 1-2 with Balwant but the duo is quickly smothered.

20:25 (IST)14 MAY 2017

67 ' - PENALTY!???

Sehnaj on the charge and he plays in a rampaging Katsumi Yusa from the right. He gets the first touch on the ball. Goes down under the presence of Arnab Mondal. But referee says play on.

20:23 (IST)14 MAY 2017

66' - Rafique down on the floor and Subhashish Roy Chowdhury is immediately signalling for a change.

20:22 (IST)14 MAY 2017

65' - Ball comes in from Katsumi but has curled out before coming in.

20:22 (IST)14 MAY 2017

64' - Corner for MB!

Katsumi goes down the right. And gets a corner off of Narayan Das.

20:21 (IST)14 MAY 2017

63' - MISSS!! EB AGAIN!!

Long ball into the MB box. Another mistake from Anas and his header falls to Rafique and he can't keep his shot on target from five yards out. 

20:20 (IST)14 MAY 2017

62' - SONYYY!!!!

Souvik's header into Balwant who finds Duffy and he finds a charging Sony down the left. He unleashes a rocket with his first touch from an acute angle. If that had gone it, then it would have surely been the goal of the season.

20:19 (IST)14 MAY 2017

61' - Katsumi on the ball. Haven's said that much this game. Good work in the middle to bring the ball under control. 

Plays it to Kotal who looks for the run of Balwant but the RB is having a horror of a game. Overhit it!

20:17 (IST)14 MAY 2017

60' - FOUL!!

East Bengal on the front foot and that comes to the left and then into the middle. But Sehnaj has it covered and gets fouled at the edge of his own box.

20:16 (IST)14 MAY 2017

59' -  Long throw in from the left from Subashish Bose. East Bengal clear their lines. Could have been tricky for Anas but his header back to Debjit is firm.

20:15 (IST)14 MAY 2017

58' - Action in the MB half.

But all disjointed and MB finally get a throw from it.

20:14 (IST)14 MAY 2017

57' - Bagan with a free kick.

Comes in from Kotal from the right-hand side near the half way line. But that's way over hit. Shubashish collects with ease.

20:14 (IST)14 MAY 2017

56' -  SAVE!!!

Bad clearance from Anas there. Scuffs it and Plaza on it. Runs down the right-hand side of the box and drops his shoulder to cut inside. Takes a shot with his left. On target but Debjit is equal to the task.

20:12 (IST)14 MAY 2017

54' - Sony with the free kick.

Another great ball in with great pace and on the mark. Just needed a touch there. But no one in Green and Maroon able to do so. Subhashish fumbles but finally gathers.

20:11 (IST)14 MAY 2017

53' - Ball into the back post. And Wedson rises the highest and nods it back towards goal but that is blocked. Duffy brings the ball out and sprays it to Sony on the left. 

Held back by Narayan Das and a free kick.

20:10 (IST)14 MAY 2017

52' - Strong start from EB!

Rafique again on the right. Takes on Subashish and gets past him but the left back comes back with a great tackle. Out for a corner.

20:08 (IST)14 MAY 2017

51' - Directionless ball up front from East Bengal and that lands into the hands of Debjit.

20:08 (IST)14 MAY 2017


It's Rafique again on the right win. Great first touch and control and he swings it in with his second chance. But Plaza is nowhere near.

20:07 (IST)14 MAY 2017

49'-  Balwant again on the run on the right. Running the channels well. He cuts back and tries to chip it in for Katsumi in the middle but that is easily cleared.

20:06 (IST)14 MAY 2017

48'-  Wedson again. Immense body strength shown there. But Bagan have numbers at the back and it takes three players to dispossess him

20:05 (IST)14 MAY 2017

47' - JUST WIDE!

EB playing at the back and finally a forward pass finds Wedson. Great first touch and he tries to play in Plaza but that is deflected.

Luckily that falls for him and he charges down the left side of the box. Cuts back and tries to curl it to the far post. Had Debjit beaten but inches wide.

20:03 (IST)14 MAY 2017

46' - A tussle on the East Bengal right and they get a free kick out of that.
