Live Commentary

  • Thanks for being with me. This is Arjun Namboothiri taking your leave. Stay tuned to Goal for further updates. Have a good night!
  • A dull encounter ended on a good note for Dempo as they edge past Mohammedan to move into fifth position in the league. Sporting's survival hopes take another blow as they find themselves rock bottom with just Churchill below them.
  • 90' + 4'
    FULL-TIME!! Dempo 1-0 Mohammedan Sporting. Ozbey strike seals it for the Golden Eagles.
  • 90' + 2'
    SAVED!! Jeje gets a shot in from range, but Dempo still can't double their lead. It's well saved.
  • 90'
    SHOT!! Clifford gets a great chance to double it. Sanju Pradhan runs past a horde of defenders, passes to Ozbey who lays it for the onrushing Clifford from the left. Clifford takes one touch and shoots wide with his left foot.
  • 88'
    SAVED!! Jewel Raja gets a lofted ball in, he heads it for Ozbey to shoot, the Australian shoots but it is well saved. Less power in that shot.
  • 86'
    A couple of substitutions have slowed down the game. Can Mohammedan get a equalizer? Or will Dempo double their lead?
  • 85'
    SubstitutionDhanrajan R Gagandeep Singh
  • 85'
    SubstitutionRomeo Fernandes Jeje Lalpekhlua
  • 84'
    This time Manish gets into a great position, but his lazy shot is wide. Looks like the Mohammedan players are more tired.
  • 83'
    OHH SO CLOSE!! Ozbey again runs brilliantly after flicking it forward with his first touch, the speed takes him only with the goal at his mercy, but his placed shot is just wide.
  • 81'
    SubstitutionIshfaq Ahmed Taro Hasegawa
  • 77'
    Goal Tolgay Ozbey
    GOAAAAAL!!! Ozbey scores a thunderbolt!! Clifford played his part in the goal by getting a brilliant shot in which fell to Ozbey on the rebound, the australian took one step forward and fired it into the top corner with his left foot.
  • 74'
    Josimar getting more involved in the game everytime Mohammedan go forward. This time he cleverly plays Asim who takes takes one step forward and shoots well over.
  • 72'
    SHOT!! Isfaq tries a long shot this time, but doesn't threaten Laxmikant in goal.
  • 71'
    SubstitutionAlwyn George Sanju Pradhan
  • 68'
    A FIGHT HAS STARTED!! A corner from Mohammedan has seen some foul play between Nirmal Chhetri and Debrata, there is a lot of pushing as both players are holding each other by their sleeve.
  • 67'
    Yellow Card Debabrata Roy
  • 66'
    SHOT!! Manish goes a a long ranger but it's being tipped off with the faintest of touches by Laxmikant. It was a good shot.

    A back pass from Mohammedan's defence is being tracked down by a sprinting Ozbey, he gets a small touch from the Luis Barreto's clearance as the crowd weave a collective sigh.
  • 62'
    Josimar and Orji combine well with one touch passing. Josimar who gets the final ball takes one touch too many as his foray into the box ends in failure.
  • 58'
    Clifford seems to be rattled by that miss, he gets in to a good position inside the left hand side of the box and crosses it straight to the Mohammedan defence. He is absolutely livid with himself.
  • 56'
    WHAT A CHANCE!! Ozbey dribbles past a couple of defenders, can't find room to shoot, but somehow gets a tremendous cross in, Clifford is on the end of it but he couldn't connect to a easy header. BIG CHANCE!!
  • 53'
    CLOSE! Josimar on the prowl after Asim Biswas heads the ball into the box, Josimar stretches and tries to nick it in but Luis is alert.
  • 52'
    SubstitutionHaroon Fakhruddin Selwyn Fernandes
  • 52'
    Interesting change as Dempo's best player Amiri is taken off. Is there an INJURY there?
  • 49'
    None of teams penetrating either defence in the starting exchanges of the second half.
  • 46'
    Second half resumes. Can we see a goal in this match?
  • 45' + 2'
    HALF TIME. Dempo 0-0 Mohammedan Sporting. Nothing to show in the half except the penalty miss from Ozbey.
  • 45' + 1'
    SAVE!! Penn Orji gets into a magnificent position in the box, he takes the shot with tremendous power, but it parred away by rival custodian Laxmikant.
  • 45'
    Meanwhile in the other game title contenders Salgaocar are struggling to overcome relegation threatened United Sports Club. It's still 0-0.
  • 43'
    CHANCE!! Another chance for Dempo, this time Alwyn George finds himself in the same position as Ozbey, he twists and shoots but his shot is saved again, the rebound falls to Clifford with an empty net in front of him, but he is OFFSIDE.
  • 42'
    CHANCE MISSED!! Ozbey gets the ball at his feet right outside the circle, dribbles past one, then the second defender, with plenty of time to shot he fires his shot wide from close range. It's NOT his day today.
  • 39'
    PENALTY SAVED!! Ozbey with a poor poor penalty as Luis saved it with ease. Romeo could have converted it from the rebound but his shot is even worse than the penalty.
  • 38'
    Yellow Card Rakesh Masih
  • 38'
    Penalty!!! Ozbey brought down in the box by Rakesh and the referee points it to the spot.

    Dempo attack on the counter. Debrata plays it to Ozbey who runs across and plays it to Clifford out wide on the left, Clifford plays a poor ball into the box and the chance is lost!!
  • 34'
    Josimar has been very quiet today. The Mohammedan midfield are not helping either.
  • 33'
    WHACK!! Amiri gets a knock after a collision. He is down and the play has been stopped for a while.
  • 31'
    SAVE!! Ozbey again looking increasingly dangerous, this time he gets into the box from the right hand side of goal, dribbles past one to many defenders and gets a shot in only to be saved by Barreto from close range.
  • 29'
    Rakesh Masih tries a ambitious shot from 20 yards which is easily blocked by the Dempo defence.
  • 27'
    HALF CHANCE!! Ozbey again gets a lofted through ball and goes inside the box, looks on the other side feeds a ball looking for the on rushing Clifford, but the ball is too far away from the Goan.
  • 24'
    Sporting attacking and enjoying possession in last 5 minutes, but the ball is being played in the center of the field with no real penetration.
  • 22'
    Sandeep Sangha has been marking Ozbey really well not allowing the Australian to move forward. On the other end Amiri has been top class against Penn Orji.
  • 19'
    The game has slowed down a bit, every time Mohammedan have the ball Dempo press and take it away. No sign of Fatigue today.
  • 16'
    Collin Abranches got a knock on his knees from Amiri on the left flank, he is in pain and rightfully taken off by Sanjoy Sen.
  • 15'
    SubstitutionCollin Abranches Ashim Biswas
  • 13'
    Debrata Roy Dempo's right back finds plenty of space, crosses it in with his left foot but it's a poor cross. Alwyn tries to make something out of it but Luis barreto handles it with ease.
  • 10'
    PENALTY APPEAL!! Ozbey is brought down in the box by Sandeep Sangha after being put through by a lofted through ball. The referee is not interested as he waves play on.
  • 9'
    Brilliant one touch play from Dempo. A couple of passes are exchanged by Pronay and Romeo, before Ozbey beautifully sets up romeo for a cross on the right hand side, Romeo tries to find Alwyn in the box but his cross is cleared.
  • 5'
    Mohammedan attack's is well dealt by Amiri's brilliant tackle inside the box. A small shout for a penalty but that was a clean tackle.
  • 4'
    CHANCE!! First real chance of the game falls to Dempo, Romeo gets a shot in from inside the box after Ozbey misfired, but his left footed strike is pushed away for a corner. The resulting corner is poor from Clifford as Mohammedan take possession..
  • 1'
    Yellow Card C. Miranda
  • 1'
    KICK-OFF!! Dempo start the procedings attacking from the left through Clifford, he tries to gets past a couple of Mohd. Sp defenders but falls down. Referee gives a yellow for simulation.
  • The teams are out into the pitch and we are moments away from kick-off. Who do you think will win this? Tweet to us @Goal_India.
  • The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has meanwhile intervened and allowed Dempo to field their Australian striker on Saturday. Mohammedan had earlier put a clause while terminating his contract stating that the striker won't feature against the Kolkata outfit provided they clear the dues. Having failed to keep their word as reported earlier by Goal, the Indian FA have given a green signal to Dempo to play Ozbey against Mohammedan.
  • Mohd. Sporting need to make use of their eleven day rest and exploit Dempo's fatigued team. Five teams are battling relegation and Mohd.Sp must go all guns blazing.
  • Mohammedan Sporting will be missing key men in Luciano Sobrosa and Syed Nabi, both have not travelled with the team due to injury. They will be counting on Josimar, their brazillian striker to fire them to three points, which will be huge considering their position in the table. 
  • The Golden Eagles have a full strength squad with Clifford Miranda and Simon Colosimo back from suspension and Tolgay Ozbey also in the starting eleven after recovering from a small niggle. They will be expecting no less than three points today, but fatigue might play a part later in the game.
  • Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the match between Dempo SC and Mohammedan Sporting at the Nehru Stadium in Margao.
