Live Commentary

  • I'm Anselm Noronha and I'll join you again for the next match between Mumbai FC and Salgaocar FC
  • FULL TIME: Shillong Lajong FC 0-6 Mohun Bagan
  • 90' + 3'
    Goal Ujjal Howladar
    GOOALLL!!! Ujjal Howladar has the easy job of tapping in a goalmouth cross from right to left by Ram Malik as the Bagan substitutes combine to score the sixth goal.
  • 90' + 2'
    Souvik Ghosh passes the ball ahead to Sankar Oraon but the latter's shot is saved by Ralte
  • 90' + 1'
    SAVE!!! Milan Singh taking a shot and a wonderful save by Bagan goalkeeper Shilton Paul who tips the ball above his post
  • 89'
    Mohun Bagan have looked very strong on the left wing today with substitute Ram Malik also moving well down that side
  • 86'
    CLOSE!!!! Glen turns around and takes a shot from a sharp angle on the right, but fails to find the far post
  • 84'
    SubstitutionSubhash Singh Shaiborlang Kharpan
  • 83'
    SubstitutionPankaj Moula Ram Malik
  • 82'
    Milan Singh shoots wide on the other end
  • 81'
    Pankaj Maula shoots wide
  • 79'
    Bagan have now completely taken the game away from Lajong for sure
  • 77'
    Goal Odafa Onyeka Okolie
    GOOALLL!!! Odafa scores off a bycicle kick after the Bagan substitute Ujjal's shot take off from the foot of Ralte
  • 75'
    SubstitutionZakeer Mundampara Ujjal Howladar
  • 75'
    Yusa has by far been the best player on the pitch
  • 73'
    CHANCE!!! Yusa puts Odafa in front again. The Nigerian has no way past his two markers and sets it up for Oraon in an open space, but Lajong keeper Ralte rushes off his line and the Bagan substitute takes the ball too wide and loses out on a very good opportunity
  • 72'
    It looks like Son is being pushed deeper in defense as the decision to replace Passah early on in the game is now firing back on Singto
  • 71'
    Odafa makes another good move on the right flank and squares the ball to his left, but none of his team-mates to receive the pass
  • 67'
    SubstitutionChristopher Chizoba Shankar Oraon
  • 67'
    SAVE!!! Odafa makes it look easy moving into the box on the right, shoots, but Ralte blocks that shot
  • 66'
    It's a shame to see Chizoba being lifted out on a stretcher due to injury with the striker on a hat-trick, but in comes Oraon
  • 63'
    SubstitutionSeikhohao Tuboi Redeem Tlang
  • 62'
    Glen gets a new shirt and is now allowed to get back on the pitch
  • 60'
    Goal Christopher Chizoba
    GOOAALL!!! Yusa is the engineer once again as he picks out Chizoba on the right and the latter makes no mistake to score from the edge of the box to make it 4-0.
  • 60'
    OFF THE POST!!! Mundampara lets go but find the woodwork
  • 59'
    Matsugae almost gets through, but gets tricked by his own feet as Eche gets the ball away
  • 59'
    It had to be considered, though, that Glen himself tore his shirt in a fit of anger and frustration - much like the Hulk
  • 58'
    Lajong are still with 10 men as a replacement jersey is sought for their main striker
  • 57'
    Glen is with a torn jersey now and the Lajong striker cannot enter the pitch without a shirt
  • 55'
    Mundampara releases Odafa, but Minchol Son with a solid physical challenge to keep the big Nigerian from getting past him
  • 53'
    The problem for the Lajong attack is that there is only one intended target - and that's Cornell Glen. Makes them too predictable
  • 51'
    CLOSE!!! Odafa slips in a pass between three defenders for Chizoba on the right, but the latter's shot wasn't able to cover the angle as the ball hits the outside netting
  • 50'
    It's a very difficult task from here for the team from the north east while Bagan have made their intentions clear from the very first minute after edging past by just one goal against Mumbai FC in the first game
  • 49'
    Bagan looking to attack on the left flank, but Jibon clears it away
  • 48'
    The off-side flag goes up against Glen
  • 47'
    CHANCE!!! Good shot by Yusa and a save by Ralte
  • 46'
    Glen takes the ball away from Devadas and charges inside the Bagan box, but has too many defenders in front of him as the Lajong attack breaks down
  • 46'
    We're underway in the second half. Can Lajong come back in this game?
  • HALF-TIME: Shillong Lajong FC 0-3 Mohun Bagan
  • 45' + 1'
    Glen doesn well to get around the Bagan defenders on the right but Shilton Paul does well to catch the ball after it comes off the head of his defender Anyichie Echezona
  • 45'
    Two minutes added time
  • 43'
    WASTED OPPORTUNITY!!!! Yusa expertly finds Odafa in the box, but the Nigerian takes far too long to take a shot with only the keeper to beat as Ralte eventually blocks the Bagan striker's shot while Matsugae puts his body in the line of Odafa's strike off the rebound
  • 42'
    Yellow Card Cornell Glen
  • 42'
    Glen showing his frustration with a revenge like tackle from behind on Devadas.
  • 41'
    Glen with a shot. Another corner for Lajong and nothing from it again
  • 40'
    Lajong have won a lot of corners and free-kicks but have to do better to make them count, especially when they are down by three goals
  • 39'
    Soft foul on Subhash by Souvik. Haokip stands over the ball again.
  • 38'
    Lajong with yet another set-piece. Haokip whips it in from the right, but Bagan deal with the corner
  • 37'
    Haokip's flag-kick misses everyone this time and goes out for a goalkick allowing Bagan goalkeeper Shilton Paul to spread out the field
  • 36'
    Son attacks the corner and wins another corner
  • 35'
    Meanwhile the Lajong coach has made an attacking substitution with a midfielder coming in for a defender
  • 35'
    SubstitutionWailadmi Passah M. Singh
  • 35'
    Haokip takes the resultant free-kick and wins a corner as his shot took a deflection off the wall
  • 34'
    This doesn't look good for Singto as Glen is the linchpin for Lajong's attack
  • 33'
    Glen goes down and it looks like he's in a lot of pain as he holds on to his right knee after a clash with Devadas
  • 31'
    Goal Katsumi Yusa
    GOAALL!!! The third. Yusa steals the ball fromt the midfield and plays a quick one-two with Chizoba to move into and open space between him and the Lajong goalkeeper before getting the better of Ralte
  • 28'
    Katsumi Yusa having a quick word with his coach at the sidelines. The Japanese has been an inspirational figure for Bagan
  • 27'
    Singto must be feeling the pressure after going down by two goals already in the game, much the opposite of what happened against Salgaocar where they won 4-0
  • 25'
    Haokip gets up to take it but it falls for no man
  • 25'
    A Lajong free-kick after Devadas fouls Haokip
  • 24'
    Goal Christopher Chizoba
    GOOALLL!!! Chizoba takes on three defenders on the right to find the back of the net from a 45-degree angle after receiving a good pass from the middle
  • 23'
    Haokip tries a long-ranger...wide
  • 21'
    Glen really should have done better with the two oppotunities that fell at his disposal
  • 20'
    GLEN!!! The Trinidad and Tobago international national unable to head goalwards after the corner wasn't able to generate much in itself
  • 19'
    Glen tries to chip it forward, falls for Matsugae who almost put the ball at the back of the net after getting a deflection off Souvik Ghosh. Wins a corner, though
  • 18'
    Odafa cuts past Jibon Singh and shoots, but it's a regulation save for Ralte
  • 16'
    Subhash looks for options inside the Bagan box and sends in a blind cross. No red shirts to meet it
  • 15'
    It's good to see Odafa coming back in the midfield and building up play alongside Yusa, while Chizoba's presense upfront allows him to do so
  • 14'
    CLOSE!!! Cornell Glen wasn't able to direct his header on target off the flag kick
  • 13'
    Subhash Singh wins a corner on the other end now
  • 11'
    The Lajong players had their hands up for a corner, but no says the referee
  • 10'

  • 9'
    Odafa wastes no time as he has another go at goal and Ralte once again keeping it out for a corner
  • 7'
    Matsugae wins a corner but nothing coming from it

  • 4'

  • 1'
    CLOSE!!! What a way to say that you're back! Odafa takes a shot and Lajong keeper Ralte sending it wide for a corner
  • 1'
    And we're underway as referee Umesh Bora blows the whistle
