That's all from us today. Cheers for following Sportskeeda's coverage of the AFC Cup. We will be back this weekend for the I-League showdown between Aizawl and Bagan and other games from across the country. Until then, goodbye!
...
Sanjoy Sen must now lift his players for this weekend's crucial I-League clash with Aizawl FC after a defeat that effectively puts paid to their hopes of progressing past the group stages of the AFC Cup.
...
It was a disappointing 90 minutes for Bagan, as they failed to break down a resolute Maziya defence. The Mariners started well, but poor defending in the 34th minute handed Mohamed Umair the chance to place the ball perfectly into the Bagan goal. Thereafter, Bagan barely created any clear-cut openings and credit must go to Maziya for keeping things tight at the back.
...
Full-time. Mohun Bagan 0-1 Maziya.
...
90+3' Balwant nearly heads in from a cross. That's that for Bagan here. 
...
90+1' Katsumi's corner creates a mess inside the box but Maziya clear the danger well. Frustration setting in for Bagan now as Maziya run down the clock. 
...
90' Prabir's shot goes high and that probably sums up the day for Bagan. They have been woeful in attack this evening. 4 minutes of stoppage time added. 
...
85' Bagan are not being able to create any clearcut chances but Azharuddin's earned a freekick just outside the right edge of the Maziya box and has Maziya's Milos Kovacevic sent off. 
...
81' Maziya are trying their best to kill time as Bagan desperately search for an equaliser. The Mariners have been caught in the middle of fighting on two fronts and that might just cost them in the AFC Cup. 
...
78' It's now attack vs defence as Bagan flood men forward in search of the equaliser. Can Jeje and co get the goal?
...
77' It's been a tense evening for Bagan keeper Shibin who has been put under pressure a lot by his defence. 
...
73' Final change for Bagan as Katsumi comes on for the final 20 minutes or so. 
...
72' Jeje with a deflected effort that goes out for a corner. Souvik takes the set piece but a poor delivery relieves all the pressure from Maziya. 
...
71' Jeje finds himself with a shooting opportunity but Maziya have enough bodies behind to avert the danger. 
...
69' Teasing cross from Prabir just misses Azharuddin's head. Bagan are putting the pressure on Maziya now. 
...
68' It's getting tougher and tougher for Bagan to fashion an opening here as Maziya are putting men behind the ball to protect their lead. 
...
63' Double substitution for Bagan as Azharuddin and Raju come on. 
...
63' Bagan are hanging on to half chances from crossed ball situations without much reward. 
...
59' Chance for Maziya as Rakic creates space for a shot but drags his shot wide. It's been a good second half display from the visitors. 
...
58' Chance for Bagan as Jeje's cross from the left is met by Balwant. However, a Maziya defender gets in the way of the headed shot there. 
...
54' Maziya once again open up the Bagan defence only to be denied by the home keeper. It's been a completely different second half compared to what we saw in the first. 
...
53' Bagan get a corner but the Maziya defence is proving unbreachable so far. Nothing comes of the corner. 
...
52' Another chance on the break for Maziya. Bagan are proving surprisingly porous in the second half. 
...
49' Maziya nearly score another as Abdulla's cross is headed just over. The Maldivians are showing how they can hurt on the break. 
...
46' Early chance on the counter for Maziya but Rakic's shot is high. 
...
The second half kicks off with Bagan attacking from left to right. 
...
It's been pretty disappointing from Bagan so far with a second-string eleven. The Mariners have had the better half chances, but Maziya have got the lead. It will need a better second half display from the home side to have any chance of turning this game around. Still, 45 minutes is a long time in football.
...
Half-time. Mohun Bagan 0-1 Maziya.
...
45+1' Good piece of individual play from Lewis nearly creates an opening but his cross from the left finds no Bagan head and runs out for a goalkick. 
...
1 minute is the stoppage time. 
...
45' Another fine bit of individual attacking from Maziya. Bagan's defenders are culpable as they allow the attacker to run into the box unchallenged. 
...
43' Balwant has injured himself while challenging for an aerial ball. The striker gets up gingerly but is on the pitch. 
...
41' This is proving to be a real source of frustration as Bagan once again lose the ball in the final third. Can they score the equaliser before half-time?
...
38' A direct attack from Bagan ends with Jeje giving away the ball in the final third. Poor play from the home side there. 
...
37' Bagan have got all to do now or face their AFC Cup dreams go up in smoke. 
...
35' Maziya score against the run of play as Umair places one from outside the box. 
...
35' GOAL!
...
33' Chance for Bagan as Balwant cuts back from the right hand side but he shoots himself instead of squaring it to one of his teammates.
...
31' Steady bit of possession play from Maziya but it ends in them losing the ball after a Bagan foul. There's been very little of note happening apart from Balwant's crossbar-rattling effort. 
...
28' Freekick to Maziya which is taken by Rakic but he sends the ball well over the bar. 
...
25' Gasps of angst from the Bagan fans as Kean Lewis' cross is almost met by Balwant's head. 
...
23' Bagan have spread the ball well and been patient in attack, but they haven't shown enough in front of goal so far. 
...
21' A Counter attack from Maziya presents them an opportunity to shoot, which is hit over the bar. 
...
18' Another Bagan attack ends with Prabir. The wide man shoots from the edge of the box and his effort goes high. 
...
18' It's still 0-0 here at the Rabindra Sarovar Stadium but Bagan have had the better chances. 
...
15' Bagan are ramping up the pressure but no goals to show for their efforts so far. 
...
14' Chance for Bagan! Balwant hits the bar from outside the box. 
...
11' Maziya nearly get a one-on-one opportunity but Prabir is on hand to clear the danger. 
...
9' An early cross evades everybody and nearly finds Balwant near the Maziya goal. The Maziya keeper is alert on this occasion and catches the ball. 
...
7' Another patient buildup from Bagan ends up with a cross from Prabir, who sends in a wayward ball under pressure. It's been good so far from the home side.
