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.
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.
