90' + 2' Mourtada Fall has been adjudged the player of the game.
90' Three minutes added on.
88' Sehnaj gifts a freekick for Goa. Can they make it half a dozen? No as Edu Bedia fails to make contact.
85' SAVED! Bhumij goes from range and Naveen leaps to tip if over.

82' Goal Brandon Fernandes
82' Boumous comes off with a brilliant pass forward cutting between a sorry-looking Souvik and Goian. Brandon runs in and squeezes the ball past Amrinder's near side.
82' GOOOAAAL!!! High fives all around as Brandon further rubs salt into City wounds.
M. Singh
J. Singh
Goa
81' Substitution Jackichand Singh Manvir Singh
79' Half a chance here! Sougou is drifted off well by Seriton as the Senegalese striker doesn't get a sniff in.
77' Coro, Jacki and Boumous combine in the box and after some trickery, the Moroccan shoots right onto Amrinder's knees.
H. Boumous
A. Jahouh
Goa
75' Substitution Ahmed Jahouh Hugo Boumous
74' MISSED! Back to back corners and Goian fails to connect the header in front of an empty net.
74' SAVED! Naveen leaps high and slaps the ball to block the swinging freekick from Mirabaje.
73' Bhumij loops in a cross from the left and Issoko gets too far forward and misses his shot from outside the box. Moments later, Mirabaje wins a freekick from the smae spot.
70' Twenty minutes left in this first leg. Do Mumbai City have anything left in their tank?
M. Mirabaje
Rafael Bastos
Mumbai City
69' Substitution Rafael Bastos Claudio Matías Mirabaje Correa
68' City on the surge here but Souvik's first touch fails him after his one-two with Bastos. Mirabaje is set to come into the game.
67' WOODWORK and SAVE! Seriton bangs onto the upright and Lenny from distance lets fly that Amrinder tips it over the bar.
66' The game has turned scrappy as there have been far too many heated instances. As the game resumes, Coro has been brought down by Sehnaj in the box and the referee is really not interested to give a penalty.
A. Issoko
Yellow Card
Mumbai City
63' Yellow card Arnold Nkufo Issoko
63' Slight stoppage in play as the Jorge Costa has a chat with the referee as Issoko's remonstrations earn him a booking.
61' No penalty says the referee! Issoko runs off with the ball and Seriton gets an arm to the winger as he falls down. Contentious call from the referee to not point to the spot. 
60' Mandar goes up and crosses in but Lourenco sticks a leg out.
59' City defenders fail to mark the Senegalese defender and it is easy peasy as he makes it 4-1 from the corner. City shoulders have started dropping already with more than 120 minutes to go for this tie.

58' Goal Mourtada Serigne Fall
58' GOOOAAAL!! Goa are tearing Mumbai apart at their own backyard. Mourtada Fall with his brace of the game!
57' SAVED and CROSSBAR! Jackichand lets fly after a beautiful build-up from Goa. Amrinder gets a tip to it and the ball bounces off the crosspiece.
55' SIDE-NETTING! Diagonal ball played to Coro who runs off his marker but his shot from close range bangs on the outer side-netting.
53' Nearing ten minutes into the second half, City's tempo to run forward has gone down notches.

51' Goal Ferrán Corominas Telechea
51' Lovely bit of play from Jacki who makes space and crosses it across for Coro. Horrendous marking, or the lack of from Souvik and the Spaniard can run in to guide the ball into the net. 16th goal this season.
51' GOOOAAL!! It's that man Coro! Game over already for City?
48' Seriton raids on the right flank and Lourenco heads his cross over for a corner.
47' City look for avenues to penetrate the Goa box but the visitors have men in number. Bastos tries a smart move but Lenny breaks it off on the edge of the box.
45' We are back underway in Mumbai...
HALF TIME: Mumbai City 1-2 FC Goa
45' + 2' GOAL DISALLOWED! Bastos hits it straight into Naveen who catches it first but spills. Sougou pips the ball into the net and runs onto celebrations. But, the former OM man was offside all along. Brilliant decision from the linesman.
45' + 1' Two minuted added on.
45' SAVED! Machado's freekick slams onto the wall and the loose ball is nudged to Bose who slams goalwards but an outstretched Naveen sticks a leg out to keep the scoreline the same.
44' FOUL! Issoko has been brought down by Jahouh on the arc. Goa under the cosh now.
43' Seriton is playing on thin ice as he now slams Raynier on his chest. No booking but a freekick that is overcooked by Machado.
41' Issoko wins a freekick for his team and Machado's delivery is a tad too powerful as Naveen can leap up to catch it.
40' Low corner from Brandon and everyone misses it bar Edu Bedia who gets a slight touch. Fall, the towering defender on the farside stoops down to head it in. Lobera jumping up and down in joy.

39' Goal Mourtada Serigne Fall
39' GOOOAL!!! Mourtada Fall completes the turnaround. Two away goals nothing less than Goldust.
38' Lenny, who comes to the fore for the first time this game, shoots from distance and goes for a corner with a deflection.
36' Ouch! Seriton stamps on Bastos's boot and the City players are livid on the referee who doesn't show the Goa fullback a yellow card.
34' CLOSE! Bastos gets the lobbed ball and turns around Seriton to take the shot from outside the box. Deflection off Fall and the ball goes inches past the post for a corner.
32' Build up from the left flank and Coro goes for the shot from range. Bose had played Jacki onside as Amrinder spills while attempting to save and Jacki slams the ball hard into the net. A gift.

31' Goal Jackichand Singh
31' GOOOOAAL!!! Jackichand equalises for the Gaurs in his former stomping ground. Game on!
29' CHANCE! Edu Bedia could have, would have and should have finished the chance of the game so far for Goa. Brilliant low cross from the right and the playmaker misses his shot.
27' Sehnaj catches Brandon on the back and Goa take a quick freekick that earn them a corner.
J. Lourenco
Yellow Card
Mumbai City
25' Yellow card Joyner Lourenco
25' Rusty Lourenco! He got onto a one-on-one with Jacki. Pushes him first and then holds the ball in his own hands! Quite bizzare 'football' from the City defender.
24' SHOT! Seriton moves forward and plays it square to Bedia. A curling left-footer for the far post but Amrinder uses his gloves to perfection.
23' Now, on the other end, Jacki tries to do the same as Issoko but his cross is not that impressive as Goian clears.
21' Issoko prances with the ball from his own half and schools Mandar. Step-in inside the box and he crosses it to the farside for an onrushing Bastos who nudges the ball easily with the entire FC Goa defence caught napping.

20' Goal Rafael Bastos
20' GOOOAAL!! Yellow card? Doesn't matter as Rafa Bastos nets in the opener of the tie!
19' Brandon gets some treatment near the Goa touchline and Bastos is not impressed with the wastage of time. He runs to the referee to complain. Hamad Ali Yousef Abdulla Alali doesn't take too kindly and books him right away.
Rafael Bastos
Yellow Card
Mumbai City
18' Yellow card Rafael Bastos
16' CLOSE! Machado switches the flank of play as he finds a sprinting Issoko on the right side. He gets near the box and crosses in as Naveen comes out to get a few fingers onto it before it dangerously goes off the goal line for a corner. Machado's corner kick then is punched out.
14' The magic of telly replays have helped us once again as Goian is not guilty of getting a hand to the ball while committing himself on the sliding block from Mandar's low cross. However, Sergio Lobera is not impressed.
12' Bastos sees Issoko clear and the DR Congo man drifts right to cross in. Naveen catches. On the counter, the City defence get their act together as they quell Goa's passing play before the ball can reach the danger area.
10' Good challenge here by Fall. Sougou makes a run in from the left hand side of the box and almost reached the byline before cutting in. Fall does his job there as the referee has no intention of tagging it as a foul. 
8' SAVED! Jahouh takes a flat freekick and it goes wide off the mark for Coro. Inside the box, the Spaniard heads it square into space for Fall but the Senegalese defender's headed attempt is taken care of by Amrinder.
7' SAVED! Issoko turns adventurous and goes from range. The ball takes a bounce in front of him and he parries it off for a corner.
5' OOH! Machado flays in the freekick from range and it loops for Sehnaj but Pena brings down Bose in the box as the ball goes out of play. No penalty given.
3' Pena and Issoko collide and the Spaniard rolls on the floor down in pain. Stop-start beginning to the game here.
2' Early challenge from Sehnaj in midfield as the Punjabi powerhouse brings down Coro. Jahouh will take his own time to take the freekick.
1' KICK OFF!
