FULL TIME Mumbai FC 0-0 Bengaluru FC
...
90+3' Mumbai get a corner and Densill's ball is cleared but it reaches Munmun, who lets fly to produce a good catch from Arindam. 
...
90+1' Albert Roca is unhappy with the fourth official giving three minutes of stoppage time. He feels it should have been much more. 
...
90' Benglauru are going for the win here as they push men forward but Mumbai are shaped up well. Three minutes of added time
...
89' Yellow Card for Thoi Singh 
...
86' BFC continue to push the envelope but Mumbai are staying put every time. Udanta wins the ball and his cross from the edge of the box lets gives a clear chance to Lyngdoh, who takes a shot from his left foot but sprays it wide. BFC have been terribly profligate today. 
...
85' BFC sub: Lyngdoh comes on for Daniel 
...
82' GOAL LINE CLEARANCE from Sharath!!! Heroic stuff from the Mumbai defender. Patient build up from BFC as Khabra, Daniel, Udanta and Vineeth combine to get the final ball to Chetri, who turns beautifully and shoots, beats the goalkeeper but not the defender. BRILLIANT FOOTBALL
...
81' Mumbai with some of their own attacking moves in a couple of minutes. Densil and D'Silva both take shots from outside the box but fail to hit the target. 
...
79' Mumbai have been really poor with their crossing today and despite creating a lot of width on the right wing, the supply has not been there for Sawhney in the second half. They look to be happy playing deep into their own half by sitting and absorbing pressure
...
76' Great defending from Mumbai as they combine really well to avert a dangerous chance for BFC. Chetri, Daniel and Khabra combine to produce a chance and Vineeth tries to take a shot but the ball is well defended. 
...
74' FREE KICK to Bengaluru FC! Watson plays a pass to Daniel and he is pushed from the back. Good position. Chetri goes for it from 25 yards but it is high and not handsome at all. Just not working for Chetri today
...
71' THIS GAME HAS COME ALIVE!! Chances on both end. First, Mumbai produce excellent football to force a brilliant piece of defending from Jhingan, who intercepts a lovely cross that would have easily found Sawhney. Bengaluru then almost scores as a fumble from the goalkeeper leaves Daniel with an open goal but he skies it. PULSATING STUFF THIS
...
69' End to end play here as both goalkeepers are called into action. Heading into the last 20 minutes of the game and we are yet to see a goal despite seeing a lot of chances. 
...
67' CHANCE!! Watson delivers a beautiful ball inside the box and Sandesh Jhingan heads it just wide. Should have done better and hit the target. Bengaluru FC are growing in confidence here and we could soon see a goal
...
66' SHOT! Vineeth called into action again as he receives another ball and although he seems offiside, the flag stays down and he takes a shot, on target but not good enough
...
64' SHOT!! Vineeth into action straightaway as he receives the ball on the edge of the box and makes a dart towards the Mumbai defence, evades a couple of defenders before taking a rather wayward shot. Vineeth looking good here. Bengaluru need his directness
...
BFC substitution: Vineeth comes on for Alwyyn
...
62' CHANCE!!! Watson gets into a good position inside the box and meets Khabra's cross but there is not enough power on it. Mumbai break on the counter and Thoi tries to take a shot from the edge of the box and it is eventually parried to safety after Arindam makes a hash of it
...
60' Kashyap, on the touchline, is not particularly happy with the quality of crosses being put in by Thoi, who is playing it too deep
...
58' Some lovely passing from Watson and Chetri to thread it to Udanta, who tries to play a 1-2 with Daniel but Sharath is up to the task
...
56' Bengaluru FC have been pretty tight in defence but they need to watch out for Thoi, who is looking extremely potent and is lurking around the box 
...
55' Mumbai are putting pressure on BFC and creating a lot of width here. Silva receives the ball deep on the left wing but the Udanta-Khabra combination averts the danger. Good composure from BFC
...
53' CHANCE!! Excellent work from Munmun as he wins the ball in midfield and then goes out wide to whip a lovely ball in that is met by Sawhney but Arindam is up to the task. Should have done better
...
52' Daniel, Udanta and Chetri combine to string together some slick passes but Danie overruns and is not able to receive a pass from Chetri. Signs looking good for BFC
...
51' The BFC supporters faction is looking rather pensive at the moment as their team has not been able to break the deadlock. 
...
49' SHOT!!! Thoi receives the ball outside the box and lets fly but it is really wide. Good chance 
...
46' Bengaluru attacking from the word go as they surge forward. Khabra plays a good pass and then Chhetri tees up Udanta to get in a cross but it is well defended by Mumbai
...
Second Half is underway!!!
...
We will be back with the second half in just a bit. Stay tuned
...
A fairly cagey first half in Mumbai here with BFC having the better chances to go ahead but not being able to convert any. 
...
HALF TIME Mumbai FC 0-0 Bengaluru FC
...
45+3' Bengaluru FC almost get an outlet as Chhetri plays the ball to Daniel just outside the box and he gives it Udanta but his cross is intercepted. Mumbai break on the counter but Silva's shot is poor
...
45 + 1' Udanta has been a livewire on the wing in the first half and has constantly produced good runs albeit not a goal
...
4 minutes of added time
...
45' Excellent football from Rodrigues as he plays the ball wide out to Juan, who wins a corner. The header from the corner is too high. 
...
44' Arindam gets on the ball for the first time after Watson plays it back to him. Bengaluru trying to control possession here and are playing out from the back. 
...
41' SAVED!!!! Alwyn almost scores there as he feeds off a period of persistence from Bengaluru, who attack through Udanta and Daniel on the right win. Mumbai survive.
...
40' Amrinder is heading for an early shower as his thigh seems to be injured. Arindam comes on for him. 
...
38' FREE KICK to Mumbai! A lobbed ball is played to Farukh and he controls it before being fouled by Ranjan. Da Silva takes it and bangs it into the ball, following which it falls to Reagean, who whips in a cross but Munmum skies it way above
...
36' A lovely exchange of passes between Thoi and Raegean on the flank but the latter's cross is too deep
...
33' Thoi let's fly from outside the box but Amrinder is not perturbed as it is a regulation catch for him. Mumbai regain possession at the back but they try to play another long ball. REPETITIVE
...
32' Munmun has been really busy today for Mumbai and has been brought into action on several occasions. 
...
31' A third of the game has now been played and Mumbai are trying to play long balls to Farooq but the Bengaluru defence is not letting him have any of it. 
...
Bengaluru FC have started the game really well here in Mumbai and are pressing really well. They have created a couple of chances till now and several half chances but none of them have gotten converted into a goal.
