The replays show that Gurmeet got a hand to it from outside the box but the referee and his assistant missed it completely.

...
83' SHOT! A brilliant one-two between Girik Khosla and Mascia and the former sends in a grounder. The Chennaiyin FC defense is in shambles and Rowllin Borges takes a shot from the penalty spot. However, Mailson Alves puts his body on the line to forge a solid block. The goalkeeper was beaten completely.

...
74' Thapa to Nelson to Dinliana on the overlap. The Chennaiyin FC player delivers a cross but it is cleared by Palacios. 
...
72' Chennaiyin FC make their second substitution as they try to shut the shop. A midfielder for a striker.

ON- Thoi Singh
OFF- Jeje Lalpekhlua
...
70' And, Christopher Herd gets a yellow card. The Australian sweeps Girik Khosla's feet but doesn't get the ball. He is not even complaining for the yellow card. 
...
69' SHOT! Rowllin Borges spots Girik Khosla's run and sends a forty-yard grounding diagonal pass. The Punjabi lad takes a shot as there is no NEUFC player to pass it through. But, the shot only hits the side-netting. 
...
67' NEUFC have the ball possession in their favor with 57-43. However, Chennaiyin FC have the vital statistic in their favor. They are leading 2-1 and won't mind losing the possession battle. 
...
66' SHOT! What a battle we have between Girik Khosla and Tondonba Singh. Christopher Herd's clearance only goes as far as the Punjabi lad who unleashes a first-time shot. It is on target but Tondonba Singh gets his feet in the way to see out the danger momentarily for a corner kick. 
...
65' Anirudh Thapa goes past one, attempts for a one-two with Jeje but the Mizo mistimes his pass.

...
62' Chennaiyin FC make their first substitution as Dhanapal Ganesh can no longer continue.

OFF- Dhanapal Ganesh
ON- Christopher Herd
...
61! WOODWORK! Girik Khosla goes past his man down the right wing and this time, he beats Tondonba. He lays it off for Mascia but he puts in too much power and the ball hits the woodwork. 
...
60' TACKLE! What a tackle from Tondonba Singh and what a game he is having! Girik Khosla tries to turn through him but the Manipuri lad has the last laugh. 
...
59' We see Bartholomew Ogbeche warming up. Will the Nigerian come up now with only 30 minutes left in the clock?
...
57' Anirudh Thapa is again on the ground. The NEUFC players have marked the 21-year-old who has wreacked havoc for them. The replays show that Palacios took him down from the blindside and he is lucky not to see yellow. It has been around a minute since the Indian international has been down and that is not good news for Chennaiyin FC fans. 
...
55' SHOT! Keegan Pereira with a dangerous cross from the left wing and tries to find Girik Khosla but a brilliant track back from Tondonba Singh sees the ball out for a corner kick. 
...
54' CHANCE! A deadly cross from NEUFC from just outside the penalty box. But, Alves towers above everyone to avert the danger. 
...
53' And now, Rowllin Borges brings down Gregory Nelson to halt their movement. The fouls are slowing down the pace of the game, otherwise it has been very a pleasing second half to watch. 
...
52' A nasty foul on Anirudh Thapa from Girik Khosla. Tackle from behind and the former Minerva player is lucky to escape without a booking. 
...
50' Girik Khosla tries to wriggle his way through. But, Chennaiyin FC defenders get their way and the danger is averted. 
...
49' Nikhil Kadam has also changed his wings. Now he is on his favorable left side. 
...
47' A slight change in formation for NEUFC. Leudo drops down in the heart of the defense and Keegan moves to the left. Shouvik moves up in the midfield. 
...
46' Eelco Schattorie has made two changes in the half-time.

OFF- Panagiotis Triadis
ON- Girik Khosla

OFF- Mato Grgic
ON- Keegan Pereira
...
46' Juan Mascia gets us underway for the second half. 
...
45+2' PEEP! PEEP! Santosh Kumar blows his half-time whistle. And, Chennaiyin FC go into the tunnel with their noses up front. Anirudh Thapa has been sensational in the first half, bagging an assist and a goal. Possessions favor NEUFC 53-47 but they need to put in lots of effort in the second half if they want something positive from this game. 
...
45' 2 Minutes added on. 
...
45' SHOT! How did Puitea miss that? Triadis with a brilliant low ball and Mailson's clearance goes only for Puitea in the penalty box. From that sort of distance, he should have atleast troubled the goalkeeper but his shot is off target from the point blank range. 
...
44' SHOT! CK Vineeth has a shot at glory from outside. However, the ball skews Grgic's feet and it is out for a corner kick. 
...
43' CHANCE! Anirudh Thapa again wins the ball in the opposition half and gives it to Gregory Nelson. The Dutchman tries to find Jeje but Palacios clears the danger. 
...
41' SHOT! And finally Panagiotis Triadis sees the ball. In the first move NEUFC make through the left wing, he takes a shot but it flies above for goal-kick.
