So that's it for today. Thank you for tuning in. See you next time on our next live coverage. 
Good Bye and Good Night. 
...
Both teams got chances, with the bigger share of them enjoyed by Serbia. But, both were unable to convert hem and make them count. Most of the second half India seemed more content in staying back and defending and apart from a few mistakes Serbia never looked under much threat. 
All in all, a neutral might be a little disheartened with this tie being a lot more tactical, with lack of the eye-pleasing free-flowing football. 
...
And that's the final occurrence of the match. It ends Scoreless today with both teams unable to break each other down and find the back of the net. 
...
90+3' India seem to be riding their luck, leaving big holes in defense while trying to go on the counter and allowing Serbia almost a free run into their box. Serbia however cannot capitalize and the keeper collects the tame shot willingly. 
...
90+2' Serbia with a free-kick deep into stoppage time. 
...
90' There will be 4 minutes added on at the end of the ninety. 
...
86' Serbia are throwing men forward. They seem intent on getting a win out of this matchup, while India are extremely content in staying back and putting bodies between Serbia and the goal. 
...
80' India making sure they do not commit too many men forward in search of that elusive goal and leave themselves vulnerable at the back. 
...
78' Serbia with a substitution. 
...
77' Serbia almost caught with their guard down, as the ball suddenly finds itself near the Serbian back line with two Indian forwards close on it's heels. A Serbian defender barely manages to clear it out for a throw-in.  
...
68' India holding on by the skin of their teeth. A Serbian player with a blistering run down the middle, leaving two sliding Indians in his wake. Serbia work the ball around just in front of the box and the final shot is somehow dealt with by India. 
...
63' India get a free-kick near the mid-line and the Indian stopper launches the ball upfield straight into the Serbian box, but the goalie is aware to the danger and comes off his line to collect. 
...
57' That's an outstanding save from the Indian custodian, keeping his team at level pegging with some acrobatics. The Serbian forward twists and turns in the Indian box to create space and gets a good shot off, which saved extremely well by  the keeper. India living dangerously. 
...
55' It's an important challenge by the Serbian defender, with the Indian forward on the ball in the Serbian box. The tackle is an extremely important one, as he makes contact with the ball cleanly and clears it before the forward can get his shot off.
...
47' Serbia on the offensive in the early stages of the second half. 
...
And we're back with the second half of the match as it still remains scoreless.

...
And that's it for the first half. It ends with all things square at  0-0. 
Stay tuned for the second half. 
...
32' India with a corner with just under fifteen minutes to go in the first half. Serbia however are up to the  task of defending it well. 
...
27' Big chance for Serbia. They get a free-kick in the Indian half. They ball is flung straight into the box and is met with a Serbian head, but he cannot divert it towards the goal and it's out for a goal-kick. 
...
25' Serbia with a good spell of possession, forcing India back, deep into their half. It remains to see if they can convert this pressure into a goal. 
...
19' India testing out the Serbian keeper in these early stages with a shot from outside the box. After a few interchanges between them the ball is allowed to fly off Vikram's boot, but it's straight in front of the keeper, who can see it coming the whole way and makes the save. 
...
17' Serbia finally starting to see more of the ball, making routes into the opposition half and they have earned a corner, but they cannot convert it allowing India to get back on the ball.
...
14' Serbia are not seeing too much of the ball at the moment, with India keeping the lion's share of the possession. Serbia seem content though in just keeping their shape. 
...
13' India get a corner. It is taken short, but cannot make inroads into the Serbian box and Serbia come out with the ball on the counter.  
...
11' Serbia concede a free-kick, deep inside their own half. The ball is put straight into the box, but it's too close to the Serbian keeper who collects easily.
