Live Commentary

  • 90' + 5'
    FULL TIME: Churchill Brothers 0-0 Mohun Bagan: It was a drab affair at the Duler Stadium as the two sides lacked spark in the final third. Poor game from the two sides as they still search for their first three points.
  • 90'
    Yellow Card Bineesh Balan
  • 90'
    Bineesh brings down Yusa from behind.
  • 89'
    Eric Muranda has been woeful and one wonders what made Bagan sign him in the first place.
  • 87'
    Micky Fernandes is being substituted after coming on a substitute! Richard Costa makes his way in
  • 86'

  • 86'
    Yusa has been good on the ball as he weaves past two Churchill shirts to find his right back on the flank. His cross is wayward.
  • 85'
    Raju Yumnam adds to the list of names who had to be carried out on the stretcher after a press by Bagan's Wahid Sali was too strong for the Churchill left-back
  • 84'
    Will we have a goal today? The game lacks spark as neither side look fluid when going forward.
  • 83'
    Kingshuk and Wahid are receiving medical attention there
  • 82'
    Denson sends a long ball for Eric which is cleared by Ravanan. Yusa wins the second ball however the attack withers down.
  • 79'
    79' A miss-pass by Micky intercepted by Echezona, while Yusa sends a tame shot that didn't trouble Churchill goalie Arindam
  • 79'
    Churchill are only resorting to long ball in the game. And a rubbish shot from Eric there from the left. Doesn't bother the opposition goalkeeper
  • 76'
    Sandip Nandy had to come off his line to clear the danger.
  • 75'
    From a throw-in, Henri gets the ball but he losses possession easily.
  • 74'
    It's been a scrappy affair so far. Saran Singh is fouled.
  • 73'
    Bineesh Balan crosses from the right which really should have been put to bed by Thangjam Singh, but Churchill earn a corner as Nandy takes the ball out of the touch line while effecting the save.
  • 71'
    SubstitutionAmad Ahmad Al Kaddour Jaison Vales
  • 71'
    Quite a few players have sustained injuries in the match. After Hugo Machado going off, Adil Khan also suffered a knock and was substituted. Katsumi and Ichezona back in the pitch after receiving treatment on the sideline.
  • 70'
    The match has become drab in the last few minutes as none of them have been able to dominate the midfield.
  • 68'
    Karim decides to replace Adil Khan with Shankar Oraon. So, Bagan going for the kill now. Not the best performance by Adil also.
  • 67'
    SubstitutionAdil Ahmed Khan Shankar Oraon
  • 66'
    Yellow Card Satish Singh
  • 63'
    Micky Fernandes, who had been brought to replace the injured Hugo Machado becomes the second one to be cautioned in the match.
  • 62'
    Yellow Card Micky Fernandes
  • 59'
    Yusa Katsumi has been the best performer for Bagan as he has worked well down the left flank and has made speedy runs down the middle to dismantle the Churchill defense on a number of occasions. Kingshuk Debnath is a close second as he has pulled off a great performance in other half of the pitch.
  • 56'
    Point to be Noted: No U-23 players in the Bagan line-up now as the U-23 Ram Malik has been replaced. The coaches are taking advantages of the loopholes in the AIFF's rule and rightly so.
  • 55'
    SubstitutionHugo Machado Micky Fernandes
  • 54'
    And he becomes unable to continue further. Hugo has been taken off and Micky Fernandes takes his place. Quite a blow for the Red Machines.
  • 52'
    Hugo Machado is down again and the medical team is busy taking care of him. The Churchill hitman was also down once during the last minutes of the first half.
  • 49'
    A good start in the second half for the hosts. It is now to be seen what Sabeeth brings on the plate as he chases a ball with much vigour.
  • 48'
    SubstitutionRam Malik C S Sabeeth
  • 47'
    CHANCE! Hugo Machado takes a shot, but Nandy was aware of the danger. Good save from him.
  • 47'
    Just what we were talking about in the break. Sabeeth has been given the nod to join the action as Ram Malik makes way for him.
  • 46'
    Early corner for Churchill, but they fail to capitalize it. Easy gathering for the visiting custodian Sandip Nandy.
  • 46'
    And the second half is on! Stay tuned.
  • Churchill Brothers, the defending champions have not yet scored any goal in this edition of the I-League. It remains to be seen how Sukhwinder Singh, the veteran gaffer can turn things around for them.
  • Karim Bencherifa has employed Ram Malik in an I-League match for the first time. Surprisingly, Sabeeth the goalscorer of the last match has been dropped from the first team and it may be expected that he will be brought in as a late substitute to add impetus to the attack.
  • So, that's the end of the first half of the match. Both teams have had their shares of possession, but both have failed to create clear-cut openings for them. A justified scoreline, one can easily assume.
  • Half time scoreline: Churchill Brothers 0-0 Mohun Bagan.
  • 45'
    Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
  • 42'
    For all your information, the power is gone in the Press Box at the stadium. Goal becomes the primary sufferer. Sorry for the delay, friends.
  • 40'
    Hugo Machado, the Portugese footballer of Churchill is now down and is taking treatment on the field.
  • 39'
    Zakeer takes a shot, but it's easy for the Churchill custodian to gather it. Still 0-0
  • 37'
    Bagan has possession and has tried to mould their game patiently. But they lack the final threat as the ball is once again cleared by Churchill defense.

  • 22'
    Yusa is stopped in his tracks by Adesope, who also overpowers Bagan's Ram Malik around the Churchill box
  • 21'
    The game has been equally challenging at both ends so far in this matchup
  • 19'
    Good tackle by Lenny to disposses Devadas, and by Debnath on the other side to steal the ball from the feet of Machado
  • 18'
