Meanwhile, this is the second game in a row Shillong has gone down 2-3. 

However, they still have a chance and are not out mathematically. If they are to get into the semis, they need to beat DSK in their last game of the group stage and hope Bagan beat Bengaluru.
...
THAT'S IT!! 

The referee blows the final whistle and that means Mohun Bagan virtually seal their place in the semi-finals of the tournament.
...
90+4' - Ball over the top for Deory from Kinowaki. Great control from the forward. He makes space to get the shot away but he drags it wide.
...
90+3' - Isaac with the delivery. But Bagan clear.
...
90+3' - Kotal with a foul on Samuel. And now Shillong with a free kick in a dangerous area.
...
90+2' - WHAT A CHANCE!

Balwant and Jeje combine and again. But Jeje with the weakest of finishes. And that really sums up his season. Disappointing.
...
90+1' - Jeje with a shot from distance. But not anywhere near the target.
...
90' -  Shillong looking for a way in. Three minutes added on.
...
89' - Ball comes back to Nongrum on the right. Swings one in and but Debjit claims.

All Shillong now and Shadap this time with a dink to the middle. But Eduardo clears easily.
...
88' -  Norde tries to get something going on the left. But he is double teamed and Nongrum in the end disposses him.
...
87' -  Second yellow of the game.

High and studs showing from Deory. And thankfully Anas gets out of the way.
...
86' -  SHOT!!

Katsumi with a some mazy dribbling on the right but can't get the better of his man. Cuts back to Sehnaj in the middle. First time shot from the midfielder. But that is blocked.
...
85' - Another ball from Kinowaki looking for Bipin Singh. But that goes out for a corner.
...
84' - SAVED!!

Isaac with a great ball into Bipin Singh on the right but Debjit is quickly off his line and gives him no angle.
...
83' - Bipin Singh with a long ranger but off the mark.
...
82' - Katsumi causing probelem again. Good ball in from the right. Low ball in from the skipper and that gets stuck in between the two defenders. But Shillong finally clear.
...
81' -  DEFLECTION AND GOAAAALL!!

Shillong get a goal back. Deory charges from the left and cuts it back for Kinowaki in the middle. His shot takes a wicked deflection off Prabir Das and nestles into the goal.
...
80' - OFFSIDE!!

Sony Norde tries to play in Balwant. But he is way too early.
...
79' - BAD CLEARANCE!!

From Anas this time. And Kinowaki gets on to it. Plays in Bipin Singh on the left. Shot comes in but wide of the mark and blocked by Eduardo.
...
77' -  BRAINFADE!!

Balwant plays in Sony. He has a 1 on 1 with the keeper but he tries to be selfless and find Jeje in the middle. Rolls it towards him and is intercepted. That was a chance to lay the game to bed.
...
76' -  Sony down the right and Kinowaki to contend with. Chips it to the centre but that one is overhit.
...
75' - CHANCE!

Deory with a great ball from the left. Anas gets to it first but can't quite clear it. Falls to Nongrum on the farpost but he takes too much time and by the time he gets his shot off, he is crowded out.
...
74' -  KATSUMI WITH A SHOT!!

The Bagan skipper cuts back and fires with his left foot. Awkward for Kaith as the ball bounces right in front of him. He parries it and Shillong clear it for a corner.
...
72' - OFF THE LINE!!

Shillong with another corner as Nongrum induces an error from Anas. The ball comes in and bounces around Shot in from Lajong but Prabir Das is the right man at the right place.
