...
That's all from here then. Until next time, goodbye!
...
It's full time here at the National Stadium in Male as Maziya thrash Mohun Bagan 5-2 to keep their hopes of progressing into the next round intact. Bagan, however, are out of the AFC Cup this season. 
...
90+1' Great chance for Rakic to score his hattrick here but Pawan pulls off a stunning save from point blank range. 
...
90+1' 3 minutes of time added on. 
...
89' The game is slowly petering out as a limited Bagan side strive to get another goal back. 
...
85' We are into the final 5 minutes of the game. Bagan try to switch the ball across the pitch but Maziya have been better than them the whole game. 
...
81' Bagan string a few passes together before switching play to the far post but they dally before taking the shot and the opportunity goes begging. 
...
77' It's been a goalfest here but there hasn't been much to enjoy for Bagan fans so far. Here they have another freekick but the Maziya defence clears it before springing a counterattack. 
...
76' Jeje scores from the spot to reduce the deficit. It's still very much Maziya's game. 
...
75' Penalty for Bagan!
...
71' A bit of trickery from Kean there but that is probably the only good thing Bagan have done today. However, his cross is hit into no man's land which sums up Bagan's game. 
...
68' As Maziya run rings around Bagan here, Bikramjit takes down the home side's furthest man forward. 
...
63' Bagan have looked listless this afternoon as they can't seem to even control a simple pass. Maziya are all over the Mariners and the scoreline reflects that. 
...
60' Rakic scores another as his attempt from outside the box goes underneath Bagan's keeper Kumar Pawan. It's getting embarrassing now for the Mariners. 
...
60' GOAL!
...
56' Bikramjit's shot is deflected behind for a corner. That has been their best chance after the goal in this half as Maziya have come back strong after conceding the goal. 
...
53' Abdullah scores from the penalty spot to restore Maziya's 3-goal lead. 
...
52' Mohamed Umair is fouled inside the box by Bagan's keeper Kumar Pawan. Things are back to square one for the Mariners. 
...
52' Penalty to Maziya!
...
52' Bagan have got their tail up but Azharuddin's foul breaks an attack down. 
...
48' Comical bit of defending by Maziya here as a defending earned Bagan a corner. The resulting corner is headed/handled on by Jeje and Kingshuk gives the final touch to net from close range. Is a comeback on now?
...
48' GOAL!
...
46' We kick off with Bagan in the 2nd half. 
...
...
It's half-time here at the National Stadium. Maziya lead 3-0 at the break. It's probably over for Bagan now. 
...
45' Maziya score another goal. They are cruising now. Rakic finishes a sweeping move that started with a throw-in and finished with Umair finding him with a perfect through ball, which the experienced forward tucked home into the far corner. The home side have deserved their 3-0 lead.
...
45' GOAL!
...
43' Maziya are allowing Bagan to have time on the ball​ but denying them space. The home side are happy to sit on their 2-goal lead for now and hit on the break. 
...
40' Katsumi Yusa is replaced by Azharuddin. First substitution from Bagan and their captain's off injured. 
...
39' Another Bagan attack breaks down after a poor pass from Bikramjit seeking to put Raynier through. Maziya collect the ball and go on an attack themselves, but Abdulla's shot is blocked. 
...
35' Maziya have played out from the back well, denying Bagan any openings and bypassing their isolated pressing moves. Sanjoy Sen must change things quickly. 
...
32' A frustrated Raju Gaikwad takes down Maziya's left-back as he fails to get past him. It is been a pretty poor display from the Federation Cup winners. 
...
28' Mohamed Umair doubles Maziya's lead here. It's been a fine display by the home side. Bagan's hopes of staying in the AFC Cup are fading fast now. 
...
28' GOAL!!!
...
27' Good opening created by Bagan here but Souvik's cross is held well by the Maziya keeper. 
...
25' Maziya are opening up Bagan's final line with ease. However, the home side haven't made their openings count apart from the goal. 
...
23' Bagan finally earn a corner after an attack is stopped by Samooh. The resulting corner ends with a goalline clearance. Maziya survive.
...
18' Maziya almost score another as the Bagan defence is at sixes and sevens. It's been pretty poor from Sanjoy Sen's men. 
...
13' Maziya score the opening goal through Yasfaad Haseeb. The home side have been better in the opening exchanges and have got their reward. 
...
13' GOAL!
...
12' Most of the play is happening inside the Bagan half so far with Maziya being clearly the better side so far. 
...
10' Raju tries a cheeky trick but his intentions are known to Rakic, who fouls the fullback. It's been pretty cagey so far from the Mariners. 
...
7' Maziya ping the ball around Bagan's defence but they just can't take the final shot. The Maldivian side are dominating this second string Bagan side. 
...
4' Jeje attempts a chipped finish from outside the box but his effort is so tame that Maziya keeper Pavel catches is comfortably. Maziya have been patient in early buildup but Bagan are yet to settle. 
...
2' Early pressure from Maziya leads to a corner. But Bagan deal with it pretty well. 
...
1' Maziya kick off from left to right. 
...
We are minutes away from kickoff at the National Stadium in Male.

Hello and welcome to our continuous coverage of the AFC Cup 2017.

Today, Mohun Bagan take on Maziya of Maldives in what is a crucial group stage fixture for both clubs. Sanjoy Sen’s Mariners are on the back of a final day title defeat at the hands of Aizawl FC and will be looking for redemption after a difficult week.

They lost the reverse fixture at home 1–0 to Maziya a fortnight ago, which was followed by a league loss at Aizawl which effectively out paid to their I-League hopes. The Mariners are six points behind group leaders Bengaluru FC, and anything other than a win today will end their hopes of progressing past the group stage.

Maziya, meanwhile, have looked good on the continent so far this season. Their only loss, to Bengaluru, came about after they conceded a stoppage time goal, but in their other group matches against Bagan and Abahani, the champions of Maldives have won whilst keeping clean sheets.

It promises to be another cracking tie, which kicks off at 4.30 PM Indian Standard Time at the National Stadium in Male.
