  • 90' + 3'
    And its over. A late surge from East Bengal see them secure the 2nd spot in the I-League.
  • 90'
    Goal Seminlen Doungel
    BOOM now Doungel puts his name on the scoresheet. Chidi breaks well and then plays Lobo on who has only Bello to beat. He spots Len making a run besides him and deftly crosses the ball to the young striker who makes no mistake and chips it over.
  • 86'
    Terrible! Brilliant first touch pass from Waheed to put Baldeep on but he hits it wide! Story of the match.
  • 84'
    Goal Edeh Chidi
    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL! And Chidi finishes it with aplomb. Thats the match dead and buried. He goes left goes right than hits a fine finesses shot which finds the opposite bottom corner. 2-0 to East Bengal.
  • 83'
    Waheed lifts in a corner but Bello can't place it on target.

  • 78'
    United SC look to get the equaliser but East Bengal defend resolutely
  • 75'
    CLOSE! Eric Brown with a fine effort as his bullet shot goes agonzingly high. Gurpreet had it covered though!

    Another failed effort from Waheed who aimlessly hits it out after Eric Brown had found him with an inch perfect pass.
  • 69'
    SubstitutionLalkamal Bhowmick Asif Kottayil
  • 66'
    Almost another mistake by Abhijit Das as his clearance is straight to Khabra who shoots. Instead of holding on, he can only parry it straight to Joaquim. Thankfully Joaquim is offside.
  • 64'
    Goal Abhishek Das
    GOAL GOAL GOAL GOAL GOAL! Thats a freak goal. Abhishek Das sends in a cross from the right which is held well by Abhijit but unfortunately he is inside the net. Both him and the ball that is.
  • 61'
    SubstitutionShylo Malswamtulunga Jaoquim Abranches
  • 59'
    CHANCE! United SC should have been ahead there. Waheed on the break finds Surojit on the far post who instead of shooting on the goal ends up playing it to Biswajit who too cannot find the target but instead finds Eric who shoots wide too. A comedy of misses.
  • 56'
    Khabra! He tries to shoot from the edge of the box but has gone wide.
  • 53'
    CHANCE! Mama with a cross into the box from the right but instead of putting the ball into the net, Len ends up heading it out. Mama gets it on the second try but scuffs it wide.
  • 52'
    Great swerving cross into the box by Eric Brown on the left but well headed out by Raju Gaikwad...

    East Bengal still probe but cannot get into the box and United SC clear.
  • 40'
    Nasty knock as Lobo goes down and is stretchered off.
  • 37'
    CHANCE! Chidi again makes space on the right and cuts in and lets loose a shot which is parried by Abhijit to Ralte outside the box. Ralte tries to hit it on the volley but horribly miscues it.

  • 25'
    Md. Rafique with a run down the right but he is aimless as instead of trying to pass, he attempts to score and allows Gurpreet to hold on easily.
  • 21'
    Pretty lacklustre match here now. Neither team able to test the goalkeeper recently.
  • 17'
    Ralte finds Sueoka with a neat lofted ball as Sueoka tries to make space for himself after chesting it down but is effectively squeezed out by Anupam and Bello
  • 15'
    NOW HE MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF THERE! Eric finds Waheed on the edge of the box with but he instead scuffs the volley. Instead of the top corner the ball just loops into the air.
  • 14'
    Cavin Lobo with a surging run behind the defense on the left before he flicks it sideways onto the path of Ralte only for him to find the sidenetting.
  • 13'
    CHANCE! Glorious chance wasted. Great poise and strength shown by Eric Brown to skip past two challenges before he puts it perfectly for Md. Rafique to shoot but he makes a hash of it from close, scuffing it allowing Gurpreet to collect t easily
  • 12'
    Chidi goes romping down the right on the break but he tries to find Sueoka instead of a shot but intercepted by Anupam!
  • 11'
    Waheed with a fine backheel but confusion between Eric Brown and Biswajit means the chance is wasted.
  • 10'
    Ralte goes down in the box after being blocked by Anupam Sarkar but the referee is not interested.
  • 8'
    CHANCE! Good cross from Waheed to find Biswajit on the left wing only to find him lash it over.
  • 7'
    CHANCE! Cavin Lobo lifts a fine ball into the box from the right but Sueoka's header has gone wide of the post.

    East Bengal slowly trying to dictate tempo as they enjoy passing it among themselves.

    Biswajit overruns the ball on the left as he looks lively playing on the left wing.

    Scrappy play so far confined in the midfield as both teams testing out each other.

    Biswajit Biswas' cross from the left is missed by Raju but Md. Rafique who is clear on the right is too slow to react.
  • 2'
    Khabra tries to swing a cross in from the left but cleared by the United SC defense.
  • 1'
    And Finally we have kicked off. East Bengal will want to win this if they want to secure 2nd spot.
  • With both teams having nothing to play for, it seems no one is interested in furnishing the lineups...Still waiting with only 7 minutes left to go.
  • Hello and Welcome to Salt Lake Stadium as United SC host East Bengal FC in the ultimate I-League encounter...
