Live Commentary

  • Thats goodbye from me, Kaustav Bera. Meanwhile you can follow Bengaluru vs Churchill Brothers which is also LIVE on GOAL...
  • Whew! Full time! Neither teams will be happy with a point here. However the display that was offered meant that neither team deserved anything more anyway.
  • 90' + 3'
    Sandeep Sangha with a cross from the half line. Both Mohun Bagan centre backs go for it but Nandy holds on.
  • 90' + 2'
    In added time now but the urgency which was lacking in the entire game has no sign of coming back. Both teams playing for time when curiously both needed three points desperately.
  • 90' + 1'
    The urge to find Odafa still does not go as Moula hits a pass on the ground but is easily blocked by Sandeep. He should have lobbed it. Odafa was free.
  • 89'
    PENN! He was free there after Josimar slid in a very good ball through the legs of Debnath. BUT He shoots wide with almost the whole goal gaping wide.
  • 87'
    Substitution Ishfaq Ahmed Syed Rahim Nabi
  • 86'
    Ishfaq with a delighful lob which Penn almost volleys towards goal but fails to make contact.
  • 83'
    OH Christopher! Odafa with a delightful pass yet again to find his fellow Nigerian free down the right but his delivery is wasteful.
  • 81'
    WAS THAT A HANDBALL! Furious shouts of handball as Christopher handles it off a Mohammedan corner. Referee not interested.
  • 78'
    CONTROVERSY! After some twisting and turning by Odafa at the centre line leaving his markers on the ground he finds Katsumi whose diagonal pass finds Pankaj Moula in the box who is brought down by Nirmal.But the referee says no penalty.
  • 76'
    The newly introduced Penn Orji takes a freekick from 35 yards. Finds Josimar but heads it high. Nandy sees it all the way.
  • 75'
    Substitution Taro Hasegawa Penn Orji
  • 73'
    Aimless play from both sides. Josimar allows Dhanrajan to cross but Ishfaq Ahmed cannot get at the end of it. Nandy holds on to it easily.
  • 70'
    The game seems to have boiled down to an endless array of miss passes and a lack of cutting edge. The hush hush crowd in the stadium clearly reflects that.
  • 67'
    Substitution Echezona Anyichie Rowilson Rodrigues
  • 65'
    Last ditch sliding challenge from Iche to stop Taro getting into the box. And he has to go off.
  • 62'
    CHANCE! Taro Hasegawa with the cross from the left. Evades Josimar but Ashim gets his head to it but goes wide. First attack from the 'home team' in this half.
  • 60'
    Alteast Mohun Bagan seems to have upped the tempo this half. Can they get the goal?
  • 60'
    CHANCE! Chizoba free down the right and shoots across the goal. Held easily by Ashok Singh
  • 59'
    CHANCE! Odafa runs with the ball, skips past challenges and neatly slides it to the right for Manish Bhargav but Bhargav wastes too much time trying to cut inside and spurns the chance.
  • 58'
    Substitution C S Sabeeth Pankaj Moula
  • 58'
    Katsumi tries to take a quick free kick towards Odafa but read well by Sandeep Sangha
  • 57'
    Substitution M. Basanta Singh Ashim Biswas
  • 55'
    And Odafa is found out with a good long ball from defense, but he is adjudged to have held on to his marker yet again.
  • 54'
    And Nandy's first kick gives the ball back to Mohammedan who as the trend of the match goes gives it back to Mohun Bagan.
  • 53'
    Substitution Shilton Paul Sandip Nandy
  • 53'
    After the five minutes break, Shilton Paul cannot continue and the veteran Sandip Nandy comes on in his place.
  • 49'
    Sandip Nandy is warming up as Shilton is still down.
  • 47'
    Shilton holds on to an Ishfaq cross well but takes a hit from Josimar who was challenging for the ball.
  • 46'
    And we have kicked off after the break. Here's to hoping we have a better half this time around.
  • Both coaches will have much to discuss as it was dismal peformance from both sides.
  • 45' + 2'
    Thankfully, the half is over. No one could take this woeful performance any more.
  • 45' + 1'
    Odafa shows lovely vision again to pick out Sabeeth down the right but he ends up fouling Dhanrajan in the proces.
  • 45'
    Two minutes added only even though there were quite a few interruptions. It seems even the referees are bored with this game devoid of any excitement.
  • 44'
    Christopher weaves his way down the right, dribbles past two but he should have shot way before. He wastes too much time and only gets a corner.
  • 42'
    Yellow Card Ishfaq Ahmed
  • 42'
    Mohun Bagan on the break, Odafa plays Katsumi who accelerates well but is cynically brought down by Ishfaq on the halfway line for which he is rightfully booked.
  • 41'
    Taro finds Ishfaq with a lovely ball down the left. His cross in the box is cleared by Iche but he gets another chance to cross, but blocked by Pritam.
  • 40'
    Odafa had almost gone solo there as he trapped the ball pretty well but he is adjudged to have held Sandeep Sangha there.
  • 38'
    In Mohun Bagan's defense, atleast they are trying while Mohammedan have been fatally impotent here till now. No creativity, no penetration, nothing.
  • 37'
    Well it seems nothing is happening here! Bhargav tries to put in a ball for Sabeeth but he cannot get at the end of it.
  • 36'
    Poor freekick from Taro Hasegawa from the right. It cannot even clear the first man. Very poor display
  • 34'
    Even though he is clearly not at his best, another great ball by Odafa down to Bhargav down the right but nothing comes of it.
  • 33'
    Odafa tries to find the top corner from that acute angle on the left but badly hit.
  • 31'
    Yellow Card Manish Maithani
  • 31'
    Good bit of play from Katsumi and Shouvik who exchange an one two before Katsumi is brought down just outside the box. The ball was going out there anyway. Silly freekick to give way.
  • 28'
    CHANCE! Odafa with a lovely bit of control there as he takes the ball on even with his back to the goal from a Shouvik Ghosh cross but before he can pull the trigger the ball is taken from him by Sandeep Sangha who falls to the ground.
  • 27'
    Mohun Bagan build well from Katsumi in the midfield leading to Odafa sliding in the ball towards Sabeeth but he cannot get at the end of it.
  • 25'
    Ishfaq tries to dart down the left but is stopped by Kotal who does not leave his man.
  • 24'
    Ichezona gets his ankle tapped and comes back on the field. Really scrappy play going on here.
  • 20'
    Katsumi finds Sabeeth with a sweet ball but Sabeeth is given offside!
  • 20'
    Almost an OWN GOAL there! Ichezona almost puts the ball in the box from a Hasegawa cross.
  • 19'
    Ichezona stands strong and clears it before Josimar can get his head to the ball.
  • 18'
    CORNER! Mohammedan with the first of the match. Hasegawa swings it in but cleared!
  • 17'
    Good play from Christopher there. He comes deep to get the ball and weaves in through Black and White shirts before picking out Odafa. Odafa leaves it for Katsumi who finds a free Shouvik down the left. But his cross is overhit.
  • 16'
    Poor touch from Odafa there as he lets the ball go too far. The Nigerian is normally much more assured in touch.
  • 15'
    Tentative clearance from the Mohun Bagan defenders as they clear the ball after around three chances.
  • 12'
    Manish Maithani with a long ranger but horribly wide.
  • 11'
    Nirmal Chhetri with a good ball towards Josimar but Ichezona can clear.
  • 10'
    Good bit of play by Mohun Bagan there. Odafa initiates the move finding Manish on the right with a delightful pass, He leaves it for Pritam to cross. Pritam's delightful cross finds Sabeeth heading it on to Odafa whose glancing header goes wide.
  • 9'
    Scrappy play going on as both teams struggling hard to keep the ball
  • 7'
    Pritam with a backpass to Shilton. Josimar almost pounces on it but Shilton somehow comes out and clears.
  • 5'
    Shouvik Ghosh with a good looking ball into the box, attacked by Sabeeth but header is wide.
  • 3'
    CHANCE! Almost disaster there from Shilton. He could not find where the ball was. In the scramble Ishfaq should have converted, but somehow blocked.
  • 2'
    The familiar face of Odafa on the attack but stopped by Luciano
  • 1'
    And we have kicked off. 
  • Sanjoy Sen too is completely confident as his team thrashed I-League contenders, Sporting clube de Goa.
  • Karim Bencharifa will be encouraged with Odafa Okolie returning and also the team's good display in the Big Derby last week even without their talisman.
  • Hello and Welcome to Goal's LIVE commentary from the Salt Lake stadium for yet another Kolkata derby in a row with Mohammedan Sporting who have arguably been the most successful team from Kolkata facing up against Mohun Bagan..
