    Half chance there for Sporting. Beevan plays a ball to Boima who should have taken a first time shot but instead cuts back to lay it off to Beevan who shoots inches wide.
  • 24'
    HOW DID THAT MISS!! It all started from a Sporting corner, where Beevan crossed it in only for Kunal Sawant to punch it wide. The ball somehow finds Chinta whose cross into the box is fumbled by the Mumbai FC defence. With an open goal to shot from 10 yards Gonzalo's shot hits the post. UNLUCKY!
  • 22'
    Sporting attack again. Beevan who is playing a No.10 role today slides the ball through Boima sprinting on the left flank who tries to find Victorino but his cross falls straight into the hands of the keeper.

    It's a free-kick just outside the box. Rowllin is looking to take this.
  • 8'
    IS IT A PENALTY? Boima Karpeh gets a wonderful through ball but he is pulled down by Rahul Bheke. There is a lot of discussion as to whether the contact was outside the box or inside.
  • 6'
    Mumbai FC have started the brighter side going forward with ease. There is no real pressure put on them by Sporting at the moment.

    First shot on target from Mohammed Rafi as he gets plenty of space in box. His shot, however is a tame one as Melroy Fernandes tucks it away to grab hold of it eventually.
  • 3'

  • 1'
    KICK-OFF here at the Nehru stadium in Goa as Mumbai FC start the procedding holding the ball in possesion.
  • It's a must win for both teams today and it looks like it is going to be cracker of a game. Who do you think win will? Tweet to us at @Goal_India.
  • Oscar Bruzon will not be in the technical area today as he serves a one match suspension following his sending off in the last game against Dempo SC.
  • Mumbai FC are also desperate for a win today with relegation slowly creeping into their minds. They are in 10th place and a win would do them a world of good moving them to 8th position. Rangdajied and Churchill have been playing good attacking football in recent matches and that will only put more pressure on Khalid Jamil's side today.
  • Sporting Clube de Goa have been poor since the winter break, picking up just a solitary point from their last three games. However they can keep their title hopes alive with a win today, which will take them to second place above Pune FC.
  • Good Evening everybody. We take you live for the clash between Sporting Clube de Goa and Mumbai FC.
