    SHOT!! Kalu Ogba shoots a magnificent shot which is well saved by Soram.
  • 90'
    Four added minutes. The trophy is being brought down to the stadium. Will that inspire Bengaluru to go for the winner?
  • 88'
    CHANCE!! Talk of the skipper and he appears. Chhetri plays a wondeful ball into the path of Beingaichoo, but the Mizoram lad shoots it off target. That should have at least hit the target.
  • 85'
    The crowd are relentlessly cheering the champions on. Another five minutes to go in the game. Chhetri is no where to be seen at the moment. Quiet game for the skipper.
  • 82'
    WHAT A CHANCE!! Boima is put through magnificently inside Bengaluru's penalty area, instead of taking a shot he moves ahead only for Osano to come and clear it off for a corner. The corner results to nothing.
  • 81'
    SHOT!! Barreto with long shot which skies off the bar. Sporting are the ones who are having the bulk of the ball right now and attacking with real purpose.
  • 79'
    SubstitutionCajetan Fernandes Mackroy Peixote
  • 78'
    Beevan makes his presence felt with a great cross to find Barreto at the left flank, but Barreto's ambitious cross is poor.
  • 76'

  • 56'
    In the other game Churchill are leading Salgaocar with a 2-1 scoreline. Churchill have to win to avoid relegation. Balwant Singh just scored to send the Red Lizards camp into ruptures.
  • 53'
    Keegan again finds himself with plenty of space on the left hand side, this time he tries to cross it with his weaker foot and completely misfires the cross which is heading for the stars by the looks of it.

  • 49'
    SubstitutionRino Anto V. Kumar

    Keegan Pereira is put through on the left flank, he cuts inside and passes it to Chhetri who's first touch is disappointing as Bengaluru squander possession of the ball.
  • 46'
    Second half is underway.
  • Bengaluru will be slightly disappointed going into the break. They have created brighter chances and have also looked to attack the men in Oranje constantly, but take nothing away from Sporting who have defended well and taken the lead with a great strike from Boima. This match is poised for a photo finish by the looks of it. Don't go anywhere.
  • 45' + 2'
    HALF TIME: Sporting Clube de Goa 1-0 Bengaluru FC

  • 36'
    SHOT!! Velito finds himself just outside the box, he stops and takes a shot, but the shot has no real power as Soram collects the ball easily to give back Bengaluru possession of the ball.
  • 32'
    CHANCE!! Curtis Osano plays a long ball from his penalty area to Robin Singh. The Indian striker goes ahead of Sporting's two center backs quite easily, has plenty of space to run ahead and shot, but he takes the shot way too early and messes up a glorious chance to put Bengaluru ahead.
  • 30'
    Wonderful play form Bengaluru here. Vinneth is put through magnificently, he sprints through and fires in a powerful cross with 3 Bengaluru players heading towards the ball but Keenan Almeida rescues the home team with a timely interception.

    Yellow Card Chinta Chanrashekhar Rao
  • 18'
    SO CLOSE!! Robin Singh gets a wonderful through ball on his left foot. He puts in a dangerous cross in from the outside of his foot which hits Keenan Almeida and almost goes into the goal. Ravi Kumar is alert and rightfully clears the ball.
  • 17'
    A cross from Vinneeth from the right flank looks to find Chhetri but the ball is too far away.
  • 13'
    The Bengaluru crowd are making tremendous noise here. Songs are being sung, Vuvuzelas are being made heard and the atmosphere is absolutely electric. Sporting fans are no where to be seen. The away team is the home team at the moment. Goan clubs have had very minimal crowds for the whole season.

    SHOT!! First shot of the match comes from the legs of Kalu Ogba. The Nigerian takes a ambitious shot which is easily dealt with by Soram.

    KICKOFF. Bengaluru start the procedings.
  • The teams are out. Sporting give the champions a great gesture with a tunnel reception. What do you think will be the final outcome of this game. Tell us your predictions and tweet to us @Goal_India.
  • Bengaluru FC team owner Parth Jindal is here and he has head directly into the stands to sing with the fans. This is brilliant. 
  • Bengaluru on the other hand will be looking to end their fairytale season on a high. Sunil Chhetri will be the man to watch out for as he his targeting to finish the season as the top scorer of the league. He leads the charts with 14 goals and only Darryl Duffy can go above him as Salgaocar are also playing today.
  • Sporting Clube de Goa have nothing to loose and they are definitely going to give the champions a run for their money today. A win will cement a top four finish and Oscar Bruzon is more than happy with that. Velito, the youngster who has been impressive in the absence of senior players will be the man to watch today for the Flaming Oranje.
  • The BFC faithful are here and already creating immense noise in the stadium. Chants of "BFC BFC" and "When the blues goes marching on" are being sung. A huge banner also lies below them which says "There is only one Sunil Chhetri". These are what you call fans of teh beautiful game.
