Commentary

FULL-TIME: Real Kashmir 1-0 Aizawl 
90' + 3' Aizawl paying the price for not taking their chances. Kromah failed to score from an open goal and Remsanga could not hit the target in what should be the last bit of action in this match. 
90' + 2' Aizawl clinging to their long ball strategy but nothing comes of it. 9 yellow shirts defending Kashmir's goal. 
90' + 1' 3 min added
86' An open goal for Kromah! He skips past Bilal but cannot keep his shot on target. Raikhan is vexed on the sidelines. 
85' Abed put a wonderful ball for Danish who is just inches short of getting a touch to it. Gurpreet breathes a huge sigh of relief. 
83' Another miss for Krizo! Surchandra with a brilliant delivery but the Ivorian cannot keep his header on target. Going through a lean patch the striker.

80' Aizawl have just 10 minutes to salvage something from this match. There's no David on the pitch today who can score the free-kicks and save the day for Raikhan. Who will be the hero tonight? 
77' Aizawl are not finding spaces in the attacking third. Bilal playing as a sweeper keeper as he has come out on numerous occassions to clear the ball. Robertson is mighty pleased with his keeper.

72' MISS!! Krizo should have buried that in to the net. Abed fires in a cross and jaryan was no where near Krizo. An unmarked header but still not on target.

62' Substitution Lalrin Fela Mamit Vanlalduatsanga
62' Mason Robertson is standing like a wall in Kashmir's defense. Rinfela crosses it in but Robertsontowers above everyone else. 
60' Bazie finds Abed with a through ball. The stiker rifles a shot from distance but not enough venom to trouble Gurpreet. 
58' Aizawl upping the ante in search of their equaliser. But Kashmir have so far maintained their defensive shape. 
55' Thapa to the rescue! Although he had no clue where Albert's header was headed but he positions himself perfectly on the goalline to prevent the ball from going in.
54' Fantastic save by Gurpreet. Krizo muscles past two defenders and drills a low cross inside the six-yard box but the keeper dives low and sticks a hand out. 
52' Bazie has been all over the pitch today. He has played the role of a box-to-box midfielder to perfection. 
50' Krizo finds Surchandra with a lot of space but he cannot deliver a good cross. Kareem was marking Krizo like a shadow and Nagen slipped while he was trying to get hold of the loose ball. 
47' Communication error between Bilal and Robertson and Kromah fails to punish. Raikhan wouldn't be happy as he was sloppy on that ocassion. 
45' We are back for the remaining 45 minutes with Aizawl taking us underway in Srinagar.
Half-Time: Real Kashmir 1-0 Aizawl
45' + 2' A long clearance from Mason Robertson and that is the last bit of action in Srinagar as the referee blows his whistle for half-time. 
45' Thapa once again to the resue of Kashmir. He slides in to prevent Dodoz from going forward. Important intervention as Robertson was out of poistion. 
43' Bazie finds Surchandra on the right wing who drills in a cross but just behind Abed Kofi. 
41' Aizawl is stringing three to four passes in midfield and then a long ball. But against two defenders who are excellent in the air the long balls are not helping their cause. 
38' Real Kashmir have got the goal and they are just looking to maintain possession. Bilal has been brilliant under the sticks as well. He comes out of his line and clears the long ball which would have fallen for Dodoz. 
34' Brilliant build-up by Kashmir. Bazie passes it to Tamang who fires a delightful cross towards Abed Kofi. The striker heads it towards goal but straight to Kofi.

28' Real kashmir are making the most of their pysical superiority over Aizawl. They are winning the aerial duels and are imposing themselves in midfield over the North Eastern side. 
25' The crossbar saves the day for Kashmir. Albert puts in a cross which should have been left alone by Bilal. But the keeper keeps it in play and it falls for Kromah who cannot slot it home. Chance wasted. 
25' Surchandra with a free-kick on the other end but straight to the hands of Gurpreet. 
22' A fantastic delivery by David from the free-kick, but Bilal is equal to the task as he punches the ball away from the danger area. 
21' David tries his luck from distance from a dead ball but it is yards wide off the far post. 
19' Krizo won back possession but he holds on to the ball for too long which allows David to come back and dispossess him. Abed is furious with his teammate. 
17' Thapa has been on his A game today as he has every duel against Albert on the right wing. The Bagan academy graduate is making a name for himself in Srinagar. 
14' The first 10 minutes has flown by. It has been an electrifying start to the match as both teams have their daggers drawn out. Who will draw first blood? 
12' Bazie clatters against Paul in midfield and the Mizo player is reeling on the ground. He gets back gingerly on his feet. 
10' CHAANCEE!! Gurpreet gifts the ball to Krizo and the Ivorian gives kareem Nurain a run for the money. He passes it on the left to Nagen who puts in a delightful cross on the far post for Surchandra whose shot crashes in the side-netting. 
7' End to end stuff here in Srinagar. Kofi nutmegged Loveday with ease but the defender does well to recover. Abed wants a penalty as he is knocked down to the ground but the referee is not interested. 
6' Aizawl slowly creeping back to the game. Kromah up against Bazie Armand but he is dispossessed. His teammates recover the ball in no time and Kromah shoots it firs time at goal. But straight to Gurpreet. 
5' It is chilly in Srinagar and Raikhan is without his aviators. But he has his gloves on today. 
1' It is a fast start from Real Kashmir as Gurpreet is forced to make a save in the very first minute. A good corner put in but Loveday cannot direct it to goal.
