Semi-finals

Commentary

L. Goian (12) Éverton Santos (43) Thiago Santos (49) and Balwant Singh (79) are the scorers as Mumbai humiliate Delhi Dynamos, sending them towards a sixth straight loss. Two red cards - Sehnaj and Mirabaje - were the correct decisions (for a change this season). Stay tuned for report and reaction. This is Nisanth V Easwar signing off. 
90' + 5' That's FT.
90' + 3' Delhi are still passing it around. Just like they did at different periods in this game. The scoreline reads 0-4 against them because of a complete lack of coordination going forward.
Edu Moya
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Yellow card Eduardo Moya Castillo
90' + 1' Five minutes of added time in Mumbai
86' The Delhi coach will be under serious pressure after this game - SIX straight defeats. 
81' Fantastic performance from Mumbai. Goian has been terrific in defence. Emana's quality in midfield evident. Balwant has been scoring for fun lately.

Goal
79' Goal Balwant Singh
78' GOAL!! Balwant Singh scores!! Shambolic defending by Delhi Dynamos as Emana easily picks out the Indian striker in the centre of the box from a free-kick.  That is his fifth goal, highest by an Indian player. 
74' Vinit Rai with a clever through ball to find Romeo's run into the box. Romeo crosses into the centre, Arindam collects. 
73' Tavora is late on Chhangte. Free kick for Delhi on the left. 
70' Everton surges forward on the break, waits for support before deciding to take Pratik on. The defender tackles, leaving Everton hurt.
68' Balwant slides in Everton on the left but his cross back into the centre is intercepted. 
67' Chhangte's corner is headed clear by Mumbai skipper Goian but reaches only as far as Lumu who gets a shot away. Goian slides in to block again! The Mumbai skipper has been excellent tonight.
64' Chhangte has tried to make something happen since coming on but he hasn't received support. Lumu's cross is too deep for anyDelhiu player in the box and Mumbai bring the ball forward.

Assist
49' Assist Abhinas Ruidas
48' GOAL!!! Ruidas' corner is flicked towards the far post by Everton. Arnab is caught watching the ball as it strikes the post and comes back out. Thiago taps in the rebound but the ball might have already crossed the line the first time!
47' Everton gets the ball on the left, cuts in to his right and shoots. Earns a corner off deflection. 
46' Delhi with early possession after restart. 
45' We're back for the second half!
Mumbai are 2-0 up and the lead is well deserved. The home side took their chances, visitors looked clueless in the attacking third and missed wasy chances right at the end of the half. 
45' + 5' SEHNAJ, MATIAS SENT OFF! Easy decisions for the referee as Sehnaj reacts to a late challenge by Matias. The Mumbai midfielder puts his hand on opponent's face, straight red anywhere in the world.  Matias reacts, goes in with his head. Both players fight in the tunnel. Loss of cash and game time will be their New Year gifts. And that's half-time.

45' + 2' Red card Sehnaj Singh
45' MISSES GALORE! Ruidas loses his marker from a long ball from the deep and three Delhi players have a chance to put the ball into the net. Kotal, Guyon and Nanda all miss easy chances and somehow, the scoreline is unmoved.
44' Sehnaj returns favor as he pushes Lumu on the left. Free kick for Delhi, headed clear by Goian!

Éverton Santos
Goal
43' Goal Éverton Leandro dos Santos Pinto
43' GOAL!! Everton Santos rises highest at the near post and heads in Emana's delivery. 2-0 and well deserved. 
42' Good pressure upfront by Mumbai as Sehnaj steals the ball from Lumu and goes down under a challenge a second later. Emana steps up for a free-kick near the corner flag. 
39' Matias' delivery strikes the wall and comes back out. 
39' Ruidas unnecessarily pushes Romeo as both challenge for a long ball. Free-kick in a good area for Delhi. 
37' A defence splitting through ball by Matias finds Lumu on the left but his cross is easily dealt with by Mumbai. 
36' Pritam goes forward, wins his header and flicks it on for nobody. Not a single Delhi player running in behind the Mumbai defence.
34' POST! A cross from the left is headed clear by Ruidas. Clearance isn't good, reaches Matias whose shot strikes the post!
33' Guyon comes deep to try and make something happen for Delhi, receives the ball and tries to turn but Gerson tackles from behind. Free-kick and a lot of anger directed at the Mumbai man by Guyon. 
31' Pritam with a terrible switch of play, gifts the ball to Mumbai. Balwant is picked out well in the cenre of the box. He goes down easily but the play resumes as Delhi recycle possession.
29' Delhi are getting their feet on the ball and passing it around but they look clueless in the attacking third. 
27' Thiago Santos nicks possession from Delhi, passess to Everton from whom Delhi steal the ball back. Too many turnovers in midfield for purists. 
25' WIDE! Nanda cuts in from the left, and sends a dipping effort wide of Arindam's goal. 
24' Emana with a fantastic through ball for Balwant Singh who races forward, gets into the box and slides in Everton to his left whose cross back in is too close to Arnab
23' CHANCE!! Matias squares the ball to Paulinho whose shot is deflected into the path of an onrushing Romeo who blasts the ball wide. Wasted!
22' Emana slides Everton into the box but his shot is blocked. Delhi bring the ball forward. 
21' Leading from the front? Goian drives forward with the ball and just as he reaches the edge of the box, Guyon tracks back and brings him down. 
19' Thiago shows lovely footwork to skip forward towards the edge of the box but he is forced off the ball. No free kick.
18' Free kick is delivered to the left flank where Santos crosses for Balwant in the centre. The Indian striker is deemed to have pushed the Delhi defender to get to the ball. Free-kick to Delhi
17' Thigao embarks on a counter attack but is taken down cynically by Vinit Rai. Free-kick but no yellow card. 
16' Delhi are passing the ball around alright but they are unable to test Goian and his well-organized backline
14' Nandakumar surges forward on the left, crosses into the box but Goian clears.

12' GOIAN SCORES THE REBOUND! Emana's spot-kick fools the goalie but hits the post and comes back out. Goian taps in the rebound, which hits the goalie before going in. 
11' PENALTY!!!  A ball from defence releases Everton Santos into the box. One-on-one with Arnab, Santos takes the ball away from the goalie as he slides in. 
9' Delhi plays the ball around in midfield but an interception has Mumbai surging forward on the break. Everton is taken down before he can run at the visitors' defence. 
8' Emana crosses from the right, trying to pick out Everton. Arnab gets to the ball first but is caught by Everton. Foul.
6' Free header for Gerson from the corner lacks the power needed to shock the goalie
6' Romeo fouls Balwant from behind. Free-kick is taken quickly as Ruidas crosses for Santos in the centre of the box who forces a corner off the defender. 
4' Lumu interceps, surges forward with the ball on a counter-attack and squares it to the left for Nandakumar who slips. Throw-in to Mumbai. 
3' Kotal plays a neat give-and- go with Romeo but he messes up his first touch on the return ball and loses possession. 
1' Guyon challenges for a long ball and ends up on the deck clutching his head. Play resumes after a few seconds.
1' KICK-OFF! Delhi Dynamos get us underway!
The teams are out for the National Anthem. We are five minutes away from kick-off.
Mumbai are fifth in the ISL table, with three wins, three losses and a draw to their name. They defeated NorthEast United in their last game with Balwant Singh ending the game as the matchwinner with a brace. 
The intelligence of Achille Emana in midfield coupled with the productivity of Balwant Singh upfront means that visitors Delhi Dynamos can’t afford to have a slow start tonight. Delhi are on poor run of form, with one win and five defeats from their six games so far. The only win was in their opening game of the season. That should trigger the panic-mode on. Must win tonight!
