Live Commentary

  • And thats a wrap. Bengaluru are marching on and are clearly overwhelming favorites for the title now.
  • Full Time: Mohun Bagan 0-2 Bengaluru FC
  • 90' + 3'
    I cant wait for this to get over. There is no desire from the home side while surprisingly Bengaluru still are pushing. Clearly they deserve to be on top.
  • 90' + 1'
    Odafaaaaa! Cuts into the box from the left but tries to do it all by himself as he wants to sneak in the ball from that acute angle. Side netting only.
  • 90'
    Katsumi is Livid as the referee comes in his way as he looks to break free. 
  • 88'
    The Mariners are crestfallen and certainly have lost interest in playing
  • 87'
    SubstitutionRino Anto R.Vishal Kumar
  • 87'
    Yellow Card Christopher Chizoba
  • 81'
    WHAT A MISS! Who else but ROBIN SINGH! Chhetri breaks down the left with only Iche back and Robin and Beikhok making the runs behind. He picks out Robin who has the time and space to slot it past Sandip but hits it straight to Nandy. 
  • 81'
    Odafa with yet another opportunity but his first touch is pretty poor allowing Johnson to see it off.
  • 80'
    Everyone wants to go for the spectacular here as Chizoba tries to smash it from way outside the box.
  • 79'
    Yellow Card Robin Singh
  • 78'
    New boy Bikramjit tries a shot for himself from 30 yards and almost does it too but side netting.
  • 76'
    Freekick for Bengaluru from 30 yards. Chhetri tries to hit it on a volley after Menyongar gives him the ball. But not troubling Sandip there.
  • 75'
    SubstitutionT. Singh Darren Caldeira
  • 75'
    Mohun Bagan look clueless in front of goal. Absolutely clueless. Bengaluru are clearly dominating proceedings.
  • 73'
    SubstitutionZakeer Mundampara Bikramjit Singh
  • 72'
    Katsumi! Oh dear! The Japanese shows all the guile and trickery to go pushing into the box but the movement in front of him is so poor that he tries to shoot himself and ends up with a missed hit
  • 70'
    HOW DID ROBIN SINGH MISS THAT. Thoi Singh puts up a ball on a platter and he somehow manages to head over from point blank range. 
  • 67'
    Katsumi goes romping down the middle and tries to pick out Odafa at the far post but overhits it there.
  • 65'
    The goal has knocked the win out of Mohun Bagan it seems as Bengaluru FC are on the rise. East Bengal fans will be cursing their luck here.
  • 62'
    SubstitutionSean Rooney Beikhokhei Beingaichho
  • 60'
    Goal Sean Rooney
  • 59'
    What a stupid goal to give away there. Sandip holds the ball well under the attention of Robin Singh hounding him but tries a quick clearance there but instead picks out Sean Rooney there who smashes it past Nandy wit ease. GOAAAAAAAL FOR BENGALURU
  • 58'
    CHANCE! Katsumi breaks from the left with speed but fails to keep the shot on target.
  • 57'
    Chizoba goes down in the box but the referee books him for a dive there 
  • 54'
    Another chance for Odafa as Debnath does ever so well to pick Odafa. He makes space for himself but his shot is easily blocked by Osano who tries to initiate an attack himself.
  • 51'
    Immediately on the other end Katsumi and Chizoba combine brilliantly but Katsumi as he darts into the box fails to take it into his stride. Good stuff
  • 51'
    End to end stuff from both sides there. Robin takes on Iche and beats him for pace but Iche gets a good tackle in to dispossess. Robin still manages to put a ball in the box but its behind Rooney. 
  • 49'
    ODAAAAAAAAFA! Why didnt he strike it there. John Johnson does ever so well there as he holds him off before clearing it for a corner. The corner comes out to Zakeer on the edge of the box and he smashes it wide.
  • 47'
    Rooney finds Chhetri on the left with space to dart in the box. He pulls off a step over and tries to accelerate past Iche but Great tackle from the big man as he take the ball away cleanly.
  • 46'
    SubstitutionShilton Paul Sandip Nandy
  • 46'
    It seems Shilton came out the worse after colliding with Rooney early on. Sandip Nandy is brought on in the second half.
  • 45' + 2'
    And its half time there. Bengaluru have scored out of nothing there in a match which they were distinctly second best. On top of that Westwood is off. Drama galore.
  • 45' + 1'
    Goal T. Singh
  • 45' + 1'
    Assist Sunil Chhetri
  • 45' + 1'
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAL! THAT WAS a goal out of nothing there. Rooney just lifts a ball from the right and finds Thoi Singh in the box who has made a sneaky run and succeeds in easily placing his header for a GOAL
  • 43'
    Ashley Westwood is livid there. He keeps muttering at the fourth official and is given his marching orders.
  • 42'
    Yellow Card Rowilson Rodrigues
  • 42'
    And yet another foul. Rowilson with a high foot there to get the ball. Robin goes down claiming he has been struck.
  • 40'
    Yellow Card John Johnson
  • 40'
    Now John Johnson returns the favour as he bulldozes into Odafa there and picks up a silly booking.
  • 38'
    Kingshuk is pretty late there as he goes flying into a challenge on Anto and gets rightly booked for it even though he has hands raised in apology.
  • 37'
    Yellow Card Kingkshuk Debnath
  • 36'
    Rooney again tries to catch Shilton off his goal but he has that covered and that was hit from way way out.
  • 35'
    Another freekick from Bengaluru. Another wasted opportunity. Keegen leaves it for Johnson who strikes it over.
  • 34'
    Chizoba with a lovely ball in between for Odafa but he is offside again. 
  • 33'
    As Moula fails to trap the ball, Sunil Chhetri with a quick throw in to send Robin Singh on the way. But Robin's first time shot is hit wide of the mark. Shilton was scrambling there.
  • 31'
    Great play from Chhetri there as he evades the attention of atlease four players before neatly picking out a pass for Thoi Singh who smashes it wide. 
  • 30'
    Odafa goes romping forwards but picks the wrong pass. He should have found Katsumi down the left instead overhits it for Moula who fails to keep it in.
  • 28'
    Bengaluru win another freekick from far. Keegan to strike it. The referee asks it to be retaken after Bagan clear it for the first time. Second time he plays on Menyongar who slides it on for Robin who hits it out.
  • 26'
    Kotal with a surging run forward but he miscues his pass to Odafa which goes out of play tamely.
  • 25'
    Good bit of defensive play from Rooney there as he chases Chizoba all the way and succeeds in stealing the ball as he looked to feed Odafa.
  • 23'
    Katsumi again with acres of space down the left with the task of finding out Odafa or going for a shot himself. He tries to pick a pass but horribly miscued. Bagan are getting in dangerous positions there.
  • 22'
    Great bit of play between Katsumi and Odafa there and it almost comes off but Yusa fails to take it on his stride.
  • 21'
    A long ball towards Odafa yet again which comes to no good. The Bagan defense need to get the midfield into play there.
  • 19'
    Good play by Sunil Chhetri there who tries a give and go with Rino Anto on the right. But Anto delays on the ball wasting the chance.
  • 18'
    Rooney tries to hit it all the way from the left flank there. Shilton has no problem holding on to it.
  • 18'
    Menyongar plays it on to Robin who strikes it. Good block there from Devdas. That was on target.
  • 17'
    Bengaluru have a freekick from about 30 yards there from the right. Robin Singh and John Menyongar on the ball.
  • 15'
    Chizoba almost plays Odafa again but the Nigerian is caught offside there.
  • 13'
    Odafa with a lovely ball towards Christopher who at one moment looked to have broken free but Osano and Johnson successfully crowd him out.
  • 12'
    Intelligent play from Chhetri there as he tries to play an one two with Hangal but Pritam sees that and intercepts on time. Sunil would have been clean through there.
  • 11'
    Rino Anto tries a speculative effort from the halfline. Shilton had no trouble there.
  • 9'
    Odafa tries to go solo there as he dribbles past Hanghal there with ease but smashes his shot way high.
  • 7'
    Moula again is free down the right but he fails to put a good ball into the box there. Osano clears easily.
  • 6'
    GREAT BALL by Katsumi! Odafa should have hit that first time but he wastes too much time to check before trying to backheel it onto Katsumi's path which goes to waste.
  • 5'
    Odafa and Katsumi try to exchange passes between themselves and they look to release Moula down the right channel but Moula is offside.
  • 3'
    Bengaluru are patient in possession as they look to build through the middle. Echezona with a great tackle to release the pressure and they look to break but Menyongar with a crucial interception.
  • 1'
    CHANCE! In the first minute itself Pankaj Moula with a lovely ball to release Chizoba on the right but he lashes out at his shot which strikes the side netting and goes out.
