19:06 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Till then. Goodbye.

19:06 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Thanks for joining us again. We will be back again tomorrow with more CFL action as East Bengal take on Pathachakra.

19:03 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Today, can be termed as the first big day of twist in the title race. But there are still three big games coming for Mohun Bagan and each of them will be like a cup final from now on.

19:01 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Mohun Bagan looked disjointed today with the midfield and the forward line looking devoid of energy and plan. 

The defensive line and especially, their skipper Kingshuk Debnath looking jaded.

18:59 (IST)6 SEP 2017


Pranjal Banerjee blows the final whistle and Mohun Bagan lose their first points this season in the CFL. East Bengal, now will have a golden opportunity at gaining a 2 point lead at the top of the table after the game tomorrow.  

18:58 (IST)6 SEP 2017

90+5' - Kadam with a through ball and that nearly led Kromah in. But Ankur Das is off his line a flash clears it from danger.

18:56 (IST)6 SEP 2017

90+4' - Rainbow taking one throw in after the other and they have really no urgency to do that.

18:55 (IST)6 SEP 2017

90+3' - Rainbow make their last change of the game as they are looking to tick the seconds away.

18:54 (IST)6 SEP 2017

90+2' - Mohun Bagan looking desperate as each second ticks on. 

18:52 (IST)6 SEP 2017

90' - Kamo down the right and he looks to get a ball across the face of the goal. Just a tad too much for Narohari who gets to the ball. But the opportunity is lost.

18:51 (IST)6 SEP 2017

89' - Long ball to Kadam. He finds Kamo but MB has to go back to the centre. 

Ends in an errant pass from Surchandra Singh as he looks to find Ricky.

18:50 (IST)6 SEP 2017

87' - Ball being crossed into the Rainbow box as Mohun Bagan are throwing the kitchen sink.

18:49 (IST)6 SEP 2017

86' - Bernard now with a solo effort. And gets a shot away but this time Bikramjeet in the way.

18:48 (IST)6 SEP 2017

85' - Free-kick played short and that ball is squared. A shot is taken but MB block and look to mounter a counter.

18:47 (IST)6 SEP 2017

84' - Sumit Das with another brilliant run and he earns Rainbow another free kick. 

18:46 (IST)6 SEP 2017

83' - Narohariiiiii!!

Noooo. What a great chance. Kamo down the right gets in a cross where Surchandra is there. The ball is a tad bit behind him. His header finds Narohari who shoots first time on the half volley. But that is waaaay over.

18:45 (IST)6 SEP 2017

81' - A yellow card now for Ankur Das as he is trying to waste time.

18:43 (IST)6 SEP 2017

80' - Another bad ball as the ball to Nikhil Kadam again has too much on it. And again another goalkick for Rainbow.

18:42 (IST)6 SEP 2017

79'-  Crosses. 

A couple of them from Sarthak Golui. The first one is on the ground and the next one into the box. But Ankur Das comes out and claims that one with much confidence.

18:40 (IST)6 SEP 2017

78' - Sumit again!

Down the left. Played through and Rainbow still looking for a goal. Sumit tried to curl into the far post. But that one just didn't have enough bend to it.

18:39 (IST)6 SEP 2017

77' - Into the final third again. But again the final through ball from Narohari has too much on it.

18:38 (IST)6 SEP 2017

76' - But MB are not going mull over that and Kamo again delivers from the right.  But again, no one in the middle.

18:37 (IST)6 SEP 2017

75' - SUMIT DAS! Nearly!

A dodge of the shoulder and a burst of pace has Kingshuk Debnath reeling and then a cut back takes Bikramjeet out of the equation, What a great piece of skill. But he can't apply the finish.

18:36 (IST)6 SEP 2017

74' - Kamo looks to get past his man and get to the byline looks to deliver one. But he is thwarted.

18:34 (IST)6 SEP 2017

73' - Rainbow with some really good play down the left. Finally, results in a shot from Sumit Das. But that is weak and wide.

18:32 (IST)6 SEP 2017

71'- Pintu Mahato with a great burst of pace and he crosses that in from the left. Kamo at the near post but Rainbow clear.

18:31 (IST)6 SEP 2017

70' - Lobbed again for Kamo to chase but Ankur Das comes ahead and claims that easily.

18:30 (IST)6 SEP 2017

68' - But Rainbow look again to cause some problems. Bernards gets into the box on the right and cuts back one. But Nikhil Kadam is back to clear the danger.

Mohun Bagan start the counter and it is Narohari Shreshtha alongside Kromah. Narohari finally takes the shot but that is skied way over the goal.

18:29 (IST)6 SEP 2017

67' - Some neat passes in the final third but Ricky there to thwart the efforts. 

18:27 (IST)6 SEP 2017

66' - Rainbow, however, look unfazed and Suraj again on the left swings a delicious ball in. But Bernard is nowhere near that.

18:26 (IST)6 SEP 2017


No. Not this time. Combines beautifully again with Kamo as the Liberian is played beyond the back line. But this time his shot is sliced and off target.

18:25 (IST)6 SEP 2017

64' - A good one two as Kamo lays it off for Nikhil Kadam to chase. But he is shadowed all  the way to the byline and Rainbow get a goalkick.

18:24 (IST)6 SEP 2017

62' - Sarthak Golui with a punt looking for Kromah. The clearance finds Nikhil Kadam who plays in Kamo on the right. A great ball from the forward but no one in middle to head it on target.

18:22 (IST)6 SEP 2017

61' - Mohun Bagan again looking to hit from the right but Nikhil Kadam's run is thwarted.

18:22 (IST)6 SEP 2017


And finally, the goal they were all looking for. Down the right and the Liberian with a shot across goal and nestles that ball into the far post. Relief for Mohun Bagan.

18:20 (IST)6 SEP 2017

59' - Another change for MB as Raynier Fernandes is withdrawn as Narohari Shreshtha comes on.

18:19 (IST)6 SEP 2017

58' -  Rainbow still looking dangerous time and again. And they have a corner. But that is way overhit.

18:17 (IST)6 SEP 2017

53' - Bernard with a rash tackle and that results in a yellow card.

Long ball into the Rainbow box headed out. Falls to Kromah who brings it down and then thrashes it on the volley.  But that is way over the bar.

18:15 (IST)6 SEP 2017

53' - And the first substitution for MB as Nikhil Kadam comes on for the ineffective Chesterpaul Lyngdoh.

18:14 (IST)6 SEP 2017

52' - Mohun Bagan survive another punt into their box. The ball comes to Surchandra who brings it down with much ease but his long ball looking for Pintu on the left has too much on that.

18:12 (IST)6 SEP 2017

61' - Corner for Mohun Bagan. But not really threatening from the Mariners.

18:12 (IST)6 SEP 2017

50' - Down the right and Sarthak Golui swings one into the box. But Rainbow head that away.

18:11 (IST)6 SEP 2017

48' - Rainbow on the attack and they get a corner. 

The delivery, however, is towards the edge of the box. And Mohun Bagan now look to go on the front foot.

18:10 (IST)6 SEP 2017

49' MB have started the 2nd half in lightning speed but they still trail here as the fans' frustrations grow.

18:09 (IST)6 SEP 2017

47' - Pintu Mahato with a cross from the left after cutting back to his left. But straight at the keeper.

18:09 (IST)6 SEP 2017

46' - We are back underway and it is Mohun on the front foot straight away. 

17:49 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Suraj Mahato has been quiet in the first half apart from that one moment of brilliance where he guided the ball into Shibinraj's net against the run of play. MB have to do better in the 2nd half.

17:48 (IST)6 SEP 2017

Half-time: Mohun Bagan 0-1 Rainbow

17:47 (IST)6 SEP 2017

45+2' MB with a final push for goal as the 1st half comes to an end. Lyngdoh's corner is punched away by the impressive Ankur as Pranjal Banerjee blows the half-time whistle.

17:46 (IST)6 SEP 2017
