    SubstitutionPankaj Moula C S Sabeeth
  • 86'
    Chizoba easily dribbles past two Oranje shirts, but does a bit too much as he looses the ball eventually. Should have taken a first time shot there.
  • 83'
    Sporting are tacking the attack to Mohun Bagan. Lots of men in the box but no clear cut chance.
  • 79'
    GoalOdafa Onyeka Okolie
  • 79'
    GOAL!! Odafa gets a gift wrapped in a shiny decorative wrapper and a ribbon on top. Bagan give a long ball to Odafa as Ravi Kumar charges to collect it, but gets his jump is completely awful, Odafa is there to finish with an empty net in front of him.

    GoalRowllin Borges
  • 78'
    GOAL!! Rowlin Borges scores a fantastic goal just outside the box after a long ball from Joseph found him. Sporting are back in the game.
  • 76'
    What has happened to Sporting in the second half of the league? They were gunning for the title in January just three points away from Bengaluru, but have slipped to fourth place without a win after the break.
  • 73'
    Sporting having good spells of possession but no real attacking intent. Beevan this time trying everything he could from the right flank to cross it in but Debnath is there to block it.
  • 70'
    GoalChristopher Chizoba
  • 70'
    GOAL!! Chizoba scores and doubles Bagan's lead. Poor defending from Mathew Gonsalves as he falls asleep to a brilliant ball from Yusa to find Chizoba who neatly finds the back of the net.
  • 67'
    SubstitutionShouvik Ghosh Kingkshuk Debnath
  • 67'
    BIG CHANCE!! Chizoba could have doubled it but he tripped over after rounding off the keeper and finding himself in a good position dribbling past Gonzalo and Mathew.
  • 65'
    SubstitutionPratesh Shirodkar Martins Ekwueme
  • 65'
    SubstitutionBikramjit Singh Ujjal Howladar
  • 64'
    Bikramjit is down in the box. He looks to be in a immense pain, the stretcher comes to take him out. Meanwhile Bencherifa signals Yusa to play down the middle and Pankaj down the left.
  • 60'
    Sporting waste another opportunity. Chinta plays a long ball across to find Boima, who uses his strength to hold the ball and pass it to Rowlin whose chipped attempt to play the ball in the box is wasteful.
  • 56'
    Mohun Bagan counter from that free-kick as Pankaj Moula sprints to the left, he sees Chizoba running goal wards, plays a ball across only to be intercepted by Gonzalo, who has been excellent today.
  • 55'
    Rowlin is brought down by Bikramjit just outside the box. Sporting try to be clever with the free-kick as Cajetan plays a pass to Boima who rushes from the wall to shoot, but his first touch is terrible. Chance wasted
  • 51'
    Sporting controlling possession in the early exchanges of the half so far. Pratesh is anchoring the midfield pretty well.
  • 49'
    None of the teams able to keep possession as the play is being broken down too easily by either defence.
  • 47'
    OFFSIDE!! Chizoba plays a delightful ball splitting the Sporting defence but Odafa is offside by a whisker.
  • 46'
    SubstitutionRoyston Dsouza Beevan D'Mello
  • 46'
    SubstitutionNallappan Mohanraj Chinta Chanrashekhar Rao
  • 46'
    Second half resumes. Sporting make two substitutions as Beevan and Chinta come on.
  • Meanwhile the other match in Goa is a fiery contest. Churchill and Pune are level on 1-1 with both teams playing with 10 men.
  • 45' + 2'
    HALF TIME!! Sporting Clube de Goa 0-1 Mohun Bagan.
  • 45' + 1'
    Odafa goes down after a fierce tackle from Matthew Gonsalves. Referee get's his card out. That was uncalled for.
  • 45'
    Yellow CardMatthew Gonsalves
  • 44'
    GoalOdafa Onyeka Okolie
  • 44'
    GOAL!! Odafa opens the scoring with a great finish. Katsumi is involved as he gets the ball on the left wing, goes past Keenan with a trademark step-over and puts it backwards for Odafa who places it to Ravi Kumar's left.
  • 42'
    Doesn't think this match will give us a goal in the first half. This time a cross looks to find Odafa, who couldn't get a header in, but the Ravi Kumar clears it. It finds Bikramjit Singh who's long shot is poor.
  • 36'
    CHANCE!! Boima gets a tremendous through ball to him which is been cleared by Rowilson for a throw. Mohanraj takes a long thrown which perfectly finds Keenan who heads it just wide.
  • 33'
    Yusa Katsumi is not enjoying his role as a left winger as he has been absolutely isolated. A long ball looks to find him this time, but Keenan muscled his way to get a Sporting throw in.
  • 30'
    Nothing really interesting happening in the game. Neither team penetrating with fire power. In the other game, ten men Churchill take the lead against Pune FC.
  • 26'
    BIG BIG CHANCE!! Ooo Odafa how did you miss that??. Odafa runs past both Sporting central defenders, rounds off the keeper and with only the goal at his mercy he shoots with his left foot only to be cleared by a diving Gonzalo. WHAT A GOAL LINE CLEARANCE THAT WAS!!
  • 24'
    Yellow CardPratesh Shirodkar
  • 24'
    Good link up play from Bagan ended on a sour note as Chizoba cross looking to find Odafa was easily cleared.
  • 22'
    A Cajetan corner for Sporting is cleared by the Bagan defence but it falls to Keenan Almeida who first time shot is not as good as he expected. Decent chance that.
  • 19'
    OFFSIDE!! An wonderful ball from Royston finds Boima who takes a great first to sprint towards goal, but he is offside. That was close.
  • 17'
    Royston finds space in the middle, plays a ball across to skipper Joseph who dribbles inside from the left and tries to curl across, but his shot is not even close to goal. Poor shot.
  • 16'
    Yellow CardBikramjit Singh
  • 14'
    WHACK!! There is a terrible collision between heads as Cajetan and Pritan clash in the air. The medical team is rushing out.
  • 12'
    Another half chance for Boima in the box, but the big Nigerian looses possession too easily.
  • 10'
    WHAT A CHANCE!! Cajetan dribbles past Pritam Kotal with his deft touch puts in a great cross to Boima who just had a simple header to put in the back of the net, but his header is very poor.
  • 7'
    CHANCE!! Chizoba puts a wide ball to Moula who gets in a wonderfull cross to find Odafa, but the Nigerian doesn't head it well, it falls to Yusa on the far left who heads it in directly to the onrushing Ravi Kumar.
  • 4'
    Katsumi is playing as a left winger in this game with Pankaj Moula at the right. Interesting tactics from Bencherifa.
  • 2'
    Boima gets the ball in the box this time, he chests it and takes too much time to shoot. Wasted opportunity.
  • 1'
    CHANCE!! A surprise lofted through ball by Yusa finds Odafa in the a wonderful position in the box, but Odafa gets in a poor shot. First real chance.
  • 1'
    KICK OFF!! Sporting start the game holding possesion.
  • Looks like an interesting contest on the cards. Both teams need a win to get back their I-League campaign well and running. Will the Goan crowd have something to cheer for? Or will the Mohun Bagan spring a surprise? Tweet to us @Goal_India.
  • Karim Bencherifa's side have been equally woeful lying low in the 9th position and battling against five teams to survive in the league. They have scored only 18 goals this season and Yusa and Odafa will have to step up in a game of high importance for the Bengal side. Shilton Paul is injured and he misses out today's game.
  • Oscar Bruzon's side will be looking to get back to winning ways after their title credentials recieved a set back following a winless start to their second half campaign of the I-League. Victorino Fernandes has not travelled to the game today, meanwhile Beevan D'Mello only makes the bench.
  • Good evening everybody it's Sporting Clube de Goa vs Mohun Bagan. We bring you all the action right here.
