  • 90'
    We're in the final moments of injury time
  • 84'
    SubstitutionSubhash Singh Shaiborlang Kharpan
  • 84'
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is only the second match in which Salgaocar have not scored a goal this season
  • 82'
    Foschini shoots wide. Not going to help the cause for the Goan side as they are running out of time now
  • 80'
    Salgaocar are still struggling to find a good enough break-through in the match today. I'm sure Pereira will be very disappointed with his boys
  • 77'
    I don't see a way back in this match for Salgaocar as Glen gets some well-earned rest now until the next match
  • 76'
    SubstitutionCornell Glen TH.Bipin Singh
  • 74'
    Another long-range effort by Lamare goes wide
  • 72'
    A header comes in by Duffy and a follow-up header by Milagres, but the latter standing in an off-side position, although Vinay Singh kept it out either ways
  • 71'
    CHANCE!!! Glen asks for the ball on the left side, but Tuboi with a disappointing cross

    Referee Rahul Desa getting it absolutely right
  • 69'

  • 66'
    Lamare shoots wide from about 25 yards out
  • 64'
    Lajong have completely dismantled the Salgaocar defense which was known to be one of the best when the season had begun
  • 63'
    SubstitutionM. Singh Min-Chol Son
  • 62'
    Goal Cornell Glen
    GOAAALL!!! Glen finds himself between two green shirts outside the box on the left side, but that doesn't stop him from expertly finding the far side of the goalpost. What a goal! 4-0.
  • 60'
    Yellow Card Seikhohao Tuboi
  • 60'
    Tuboi gets himself booked for a simulation inside the box

    Milan Singh lobs it in. Wali heads it away and Duffy leads the attack for Salgaocar now
  • 57'
    Attack building on from the left and Matsugae manages to earn his side a corner
  • 55'
    Glen bundles down in the Salgaocar box. No penalty says the referee
  • 53'
    CHANCE!!! Duffy released on the left by skipper Francis Fernandes, but the Scot shoots despairingly wide
  • 52'
    Another Lajong attack building up on the right side now, but Tlang's attempt to find Glen is found by a green shirt
  • 49'
    Goal Taisuke Matsugane
    GOOAAALL!!! 3-0! Would you believe it? Matsugae breaks away from his marker and left Salgaocar goalkeeper Karanjit Singh with absolutely no chance as his bullet-like shot finds the back of the net
  • 46'
    OFF THE POST!!! Glen controls a pass on the right side and sends a right-footed volley towards the far post, but the ball comes off the upright
  • 46'
    Second half resumes
  • HALF-TIME: Salgaocar FC 0-2 Shillong Lajong FC. The Goans are certainly in an unfamiliar situation, but nothing to take away from the north-eastern side
  • 45' + 1'
    SubstitutionCaetan Costa Milagres Gonsalves
  • 45' + 1'
    An attacking substitution now for Salgaocar FC
  • 45'
    Two minutes added on
  • 42'
    SUBHASH!!!! Tlang whips in a cross from the right, Glen miskicks and Subhash Singh there - almost as if he doesn't want to score - shoots wide from just inside the box
  • 39'
    Ouch! That has to hurt. Tuboi accidentally steps on the right foot of Caitano Costa, sort of just under the knee, on the calf
  • 37'
    Goal Redeem Tlang
    GOOAALLL!!! Glen does well to pull three defenders towards him on the left flank and puts in a sharp cross which was tucked in by an unmarked Tlang on the far post

  • 30'
    SubstitutionMarcus Masceranhas Clifton Dias
  • 29'
    A through ball for Duffy and he's flipped over by the Lajong goalkeeper Vinay Singh, who is although lucky to stay on the field as the referee's flag was already up for an off-side
  • 26'
    We're closing in on the half-hour mark and Salgaocar are still not looking to go all out in attack
  • 24'
    Salgaocar are still seen keeping more of the ball possession with the short passes and forcing the opponents to come towards them

  • 1'
    And we're underway
  • Uilliams Silva has been left out of their striker which leaves Singto with only three foreign players of which too Minchol Son remains a doubtful starter.
  • On the other hand, Shillong Lajong play all of their group games at 4 pm and the north eastern outfit will have to adjust to the weather conditions.
  • They have added Mumbai Tigers striker Bikash Jairu on their roster and go into the tournament with only three foreign players, namely Darryl Duffy, Matthew Foschini and Chika Wali. Karma Tsewang is the only high profile name missing from the squad due to a knee injury.
  • Derrick Pereira’s team haven’t been in the best of forms having lost four of their last five matches. However the Goan side have played a few practice matches lately and have performed well in them.
  • Two teams from the top half of the I-League table go head-to-head on Wednesday in a group C opening clash. It's Salgaocar FC vs Shillong Lajong FC
