Live Commentary

  • Hope you have enjoyed the Live coverage of this fantastic Goan derby. This is Arjun Namboothiri taking your leave. I will see you in the next game. Meanwhile stay tuned to Goal for further updates.
  • Karanjit was excellent in goal while Duffy and Dudu could have scored more goals and put this game to bed. Dempo couldn't crack this resolute Salgaocar defence as they were put on the back foot with the two quick fire goals in the first half. This means Salgaocar climb to second in the table just four points behind league leaders Bengaluru.
  • 90' + 3'
    FULL-TIME. Salgaocar's title prospects have been handed a big boost with an impressive 2-0 victory over rivals Dempo.
  • 90' + 2'
    SubstitutionDarryl Duffy Brian Mascarenhas
  • 90' + 1'
    Duffy this time tries to score a spectacular curler but he shoots it over. With 2 minutes to go can Salgaocar find another one? or will Dempo find a consolation goal?
  • 89'
    CHANCE!! Salgaocar making a mess of the all the good chances they have got in the second half. This time Clifton Dias finds himself in a great position unmarked in the Dempo box, but he shoots wide.Dudu and Duffy were screaming for the ball.
  • 87'
    Dempo not having a good day in front of goal today. Luck is just not with them. Salgaocar meanwhile are not holding their lead and sitting back, they look to attack on the counter every time.
  • 85'
    DOUBLE SAVE!! Dempo looking to find the goal that can make this an interesting match but they just can't seem to get past Karanjit. Beto shoots first time which was punched wide, from the rebound Ozbey turns as Jeje rushes in to shoot only to be saved again. BRILLIANT STUFF.
  • 82'
    SHOT!! Another chance to Salgaocar, this time it is Duffy who dribbles past Selwyn shots with his left foot goal wards but it is just over the bar.
  • 79'
    CHANCE! Salgaocar had plenty of chances to shoot but they were hesitant, as they spray passes among Dudu, Duffy an Rosario. Dudu gets the final ball but his shot is not good enough.
  • 76'

    CHANCE!! Salgaocar look deadly on every counter attack. Rosario on the right flank is unmarked, he gets a magnificent shot in from just outside the box, the shot is saved by Laxmikant as the rebound falls to Dudu who cannot tap it in from close range.
  • 72'
    Shots all round the pitch here as it's end to end football. No goals to talk about but the crowd are enjoying this high voltage game.

  • 65'
    ANOTHER CHANCE! This time Dudu misses from close range. Another counter attack from Salgaocar finds the Nigerian on the right, he rushes into the penalty box dribbles past Amiri and shoots it way wide. Not what you expect from Dudu.
  • 63'
    CHANCE! Ozbey gets the ball amidst confusion among the Salgaocar defenders, he dribbles past one and with the goal at his mercy shots it straight into the Karanjit. That was a TOP CLASS save.
  • 59'
    BIG CHANCE!! Salgaocar attack on the counter. Dudu gets the ball in the center of the pitch, sees Duffy sprinting towards the right, plays it to him beautifully. Duffy rushes goal wards, comes inside on the defender, has plenty of space and time to shoot but he sprays it wide. Should have scored.
  • 57'
    Salgaocar attack dangerously with Dudu in the thick of things. First he gets the ball into the box in a good area, secondly he somehow finds the ball at his legs tries to shoot but on both occasions he offside by a whisker. CLOSE!
  • 53'
    Ozbey's influence is evidently seen in the early exchanges of the second half as Dempo are trying to find him with a barrage of long balls.
  • 52'
    Dempo are into the thick of things attacking with real intent. Firstly Beto tries to find Ozbey but it is cleared for a corner. The resulting corner finds Beto again but he heads it well over the bar.
  • 49'
    Ozbey comes in to support Beto as Dempo look go all out in attack. Salgaocar meanwhile make an interesting change with Gilbert playing as left back for Rahul Kumar who was replaced by Francisco.

  • 45' + 2'
    HALF-TIME. Salgaocar lead by 2-0 against a puzzled Dempo side. Can they turn the tables in the second half? or will Salgaocar close the game out? Stay tuned.
  • 45' + 1'
    Amiri is down as he claims to be fouled by Dudu. There was nothing really in that tackle. As he gets up the crowd send a loud chorus of boos. A bit of play acting?
  • 44'
    Romeo again attacks from the right, he tries to find Beto but the ball is poor and it goes out for a goal kick. Dempo are really missing Ozbey in this game as Beto looks isolated up front.
  • 43'
    Duffy looks to run across 2 Dempo defenders on the side line , but he is eventually fouled.
  • 41'
    SHOT!! Romeo again this time. He has plenty of space on the right wing after he was found by Alwyn, he dribbles past one come inside Rahul, shoots with his left foot but it's saved. A little more power would have added some fire.
  • 39'
    CHANCE!! Dudu looses the ball in Dempo's half and Dempo counter attack with Alwyn. He plays the ball to Beto who plays a wonderful through ball over the Salgaocar defence looking for Romeo who stretches to nick it in, but Karanjit steps up to collect it.
  • 36'
    Duffy and Pranoy battle for the ball, Duffy wins the battle goes for a audacious chip from a few yards in front of the half way line, but it's not threatening. A bit ambitious that.
  • 33'
    Clifton Dias and Rocus together with the defensive center backs Rahul and Chika Wali have been excellent defensively so far, reducing Dempo to long shots and not allowing them to play through balls.
  • 29'
    Dempo still have the bulk of possession. A long ball finds the sprinting Sanju Pradhan, as he tries to collect it he handles the ball. Free kick to Salgaocar.
  • 25'
    Pranoy tries a shot from long range again but it's not top quality there. Dempo have been stunned by the two quick fire goals. Salgaocar have looked defensively solid so far.
  • 23'
    Goal Darryl Duffy
    GOAL!! Another from Salgaocar from no where. Rocus finds himself in a good position, tries to take a shot but instead passes to Duffy who takes a couple of steps forward and places the ball brilliantly to the right of Kattimani. Nehru stadium has come alive!!
  • 20'
    SAVED!! Sanju Pradhan curls in a free kick from the right to perfectly find Amiri, the defender leaps to perfection and heads it in strongly only to be tipped off by Karanjit.
  • 18'
    Goal Bikash Jairu
    GOAL!! Dudu always seems to be in the nick of things, this time he gets past Amiri looks for a shot but he sees a unmarked Jairu on the left and plays it across to him, Jairu slots the ball in the top half of the net. The crowd ROAR!!
  • 14'
    For all the possession Dempo are having, they are not penetrating the Salgaocar defence. Pronoy tries to go for a long shot this time from 25 yards but its poor.
  • 11'
    It's all Dempo at the moment, passing the ball with ease. Salgaocar are hardly getting the ball. whenever they do it's been dispossessed by an organized Dempo team.
  • 9'
    OFFSIDE!! Beto again trying to be provider to Alwyn. He plays an excellent pass to Alwyn running in to the left side of the box, but he times his run a little too early. That was CLOSE!!
  • 7'
    SHOT!! First shot of the game comes from Sanju Pradhan. He tries to go for the spectacular from long range, but his shot is poor as Karanjit sees it going out for a goal kick..
  • 6'
    CHANCE!! Beto gets the ball in the just outside the box plays a delightful ball towards Alwyn who tries to dribble it past the only defender ahead of him, but he tries too much. Good chance there.
  • 4'
    First real attack from Salgaocar. Dudu gets a opportunity to head it goal wards from a cross of the right flank. But his header has no real power in it.
  • 3'
    Dempo controlling the game early on keeping possession and playing short passes. Jewel Raja and Pronoy Halder are anchoring their midfield.
  • 1'
    KICK-OFF. Dempo start the game with Alwyn and Sanju exchanging passes to the Midfield. A long ball tries to find Romeo but it is inaccurate.
  • We are five minutes to Kick-off. The crowd has arrived in good numbers for this highly awaited Goan derby. Looks to be an exciting clash. who do you think will win this? Tweet to us @Goal_India.
  • For Salgaocar, Nicolau Colaco will be unavailable for the fixture after sustaining an injury against Shillong Lajong while Francis Fernandez is not match fit yet.
  • Dempo will be missing the services of Clifford Miranda due to suspension, he has featured in all of Dempo's 18 matches so far. Simon Colosimo also missed out to suspension but the Haroon Amiri is more than able to replace him. Interesting also to see four U-23 players in their fist eleven.
  • Salgaocar on the other hand have the same story, conceding once and scoring 7 from their last four I-League games. Dudu has been a revelation for them since he has joined the club. Together with Duffy it will be interesting to see how the two fare against a solid Dempo back four.
  • Dempo last conceded a goal way back in January against Sporting Clube de Goa in the Federation Cup. They have kept three clean sheets since then and have scored 7 goals. Tolgay Ozbey has been on the scoresheet 3 times but he starts from the bench today. Interesting choice.
  • This looks to be a high voltage clash between the Goan biggies as both teams havn't lost a single game after the winter break. Dempo have three on the trot and Salgaocar have won 4 successive games.
  • Good evening football enthusiasts. A warm and sunny day in the Nehru stadium awaits the Goan derby between Dempo and Salgaocar.
