79' Penalty for Mumbai. Adil's tackle on Hitesh and the referee points to the spot
76' Surchandra with a shot from distance. Wide!

59' Brandon with a flick towards Wolfe. The Trinidad and Tobago striker chests it down and Brandon's follow up shot comes off the Mumbai defence
58' Anthony D'Souza running down the left wing, but nobody to receive the pass in the Mumbai box
57' Thoi Singh with an audacious attempt from distance. Too high and wide. Doesn't get hold of his shot
57' The visitors are doing well to keep possession of the ball, even if it means playing it in their own half and back to their goalkeeper
56' Churchill look to have gotten back in business in the second half. Looking much better going ahead, but Mumbai are not completely out of it too
55' Brandon's corner from the left, and now from the right after Reagan's defensive header
54' Mumbai survive the resultant corner and look to hit out on the counter. Victorino walks himselm into an off-side position as Churchill reclaim possession.

53' Keenan fouled by Kadam on the right. Churchill free-kick
A. D'Souza
C. Miranda
Churchill Brothers
52' Substitution Clifford Miranda Rayes Anthony D'Souza
52' The Churchill substitution that took place in the previous game too. Clifford makes way for Anthony on the left flank
50' CLOSE!!! Rowilson's header off Brandon's flag-kick takes a lucky touch off Kattimani as the ball stays out

It's half-time at the Tilak Maidan with both teams scoring a goal apiece. Brandon giving the hosts the lead through a direct free-kick and Victorino equalising for the visitors with an opportunistic strike
45' + 2' Mumbai continually attacking on the right. It's almost half time
45' + 1' Steven's free-kick averted out of the box and Pratesh's shot is way high and wide of the target
C. Miranda
Yellow Card
Churchill Brothers
45' Yellow card Clifford Miranda Rayes
45' This time a yellow card for Clifford for a foul on Shallum. A kick in the guts
43' Chance for Victorino after Kadam lays down the ball for his team-mate. Victorino's shot, however, lacked venom to beat Priyant
41' CLOSE!! Mumbai are turning the ball from end to end until eventually Hanghal takes a shot at goal from the left side from an acute angle that misses the far post
39' CHANCE!!! A good pass by Kingslee. Seriton takes it on a high lob and attempts to place it above the onrushing Churchill goalkeeper but fails to quite put it above Kattimani
38' Mumbai are deservedly in the lead and they might as well go on to win this one, the way this game is panning out unless the Churchill players string together a couple of good moves
35' GOAALL!!! Victorino takes advantage of a mixup between Rowilson and Priyant as he placed the ball into the open goal. An opportunistic strike that levels the scoreline
V. Fernandes
Goal
Mumbai
34' Goal Victorino Fernandes
34' Clifford turns it on the left flank for Satish. The cross comes in but not all that intimidating. A rare attack by Churchill but not effective enough
33' A piledriver by Shallum. Well held by goalkeeper Priyant.
31' My snacks are here. 15 minutes to go for the half-time whistle to go and Churchill are leading by a goal despite the away side dominating most of the game so far
30' Pratik gets the better of Wolfe in the box who was going up for Brandon's cross off the free-kick
30' A free-kick for Churchill on account of Kima's foul on Wolfe. It's way out this time.
28' Pratesh's cross for Victorino, who's fighting between Keenan and Rowilson to get on the end of it, eventually claimed by Priyant 
N. Kadam
F. Choudhary
Mumbai
26' Substitution Farukh Choudhary Nikhil Kadam
26' The first change of the game. Mumbai's U-22 boy is relieved of his duties for the evening as Nikhil Kadam makes his way in
24' A quick shot on the turn my Wolfe, perhaps his first real attempt at goal. Wide.
23' CHANCE!!! A move from the left this time as Reagan finds Thoi with a good vision at goal, but Priyant was quick to react and claim the ball
22' Rowilson almost made to look like a fool by Victorino who was receiving a long pass from Steven, but the former Sporting striker heads it beyond the goal-line
21' OHH!!! Close again as Thoi wasn't able to give enough direction to Steven's free-kick into the far corner
20' A foul by Adil on Victorino. Mumbai have a corner-like free-kick on the right to be taken by Steven
19' Steven takes it short to Pratesh and rallies it to Hanghal, whose shot goes over the target
18' Kima has Wolfe marked well in the hole and it's back in the attack through the right channel. Victorino and Steven force another corner
17' CHANCE! Shallum, Victorino, Steven's cross from the right but Shallum's header is too weak to beat Churchill goalkeeper Priyant
16' Brandon comes back on the pitch but there are two balls on the pitch. One has to be kicked out as play resumes
16' Brandon is down after contact with Mumbai defender Shallum. He has to walk out to assess his injury
15' Kingslee denied entry in the box by Shallum and Clifford's cross is blocked by Pratik. Good defending by the Mumbaikars
14' Kingslee attempts a through ball for Wolfe but it's well intercepted by Lalchhawnkima
13' Hanghal with a long diagonal ball for Steven on the right. He takes it on the lob but it sails over 
12' OFF THE BAR! Takes a shot from distance after Steven set him up with the move starting from the left through Farukh
11' Mumbai, though trailing by a goal, keep on attacking. Wolfe has hardly got a chance to take a touch on the ball that tells you which team has been attacking with more intent so far 
9' Shallum takes a tumble while trying to get past Satish, but it's too evidently a dive
7' Priyant's goalkick falls right at the feet of Victorino who leads the attack and eventually the header by youngster Farukh going wide 
6' The corner, also taken by Steven, is dealt with by the Churchill defence as the visitors' coach urges his side to keep attacking
6' Mumbai attacking from the right again. Steven's cross is put wide for a corner
B. Fernandes
Goal
Churchill Brothers
4' Goal Brandon Fernandes
4' Brandon's curling free-kick takes a slight deflection from the wall that was enough to beat Mumbai goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani
4' Brandon stands over it....and it's a GOOOAAALLL!!!!
3' It's a free kick for Churchill in a very good position as Keenan's long lob saw Clifford being fouled by Pratik a few yards outside the box
P. Chowdhary
Yellow Card
Mumbai
2' Yellow card Pratik Prabhakar Chowdhary
1' Victorino with some touched before he loses the ball to Adil in the Churchill half. A minute ago, it was Steven Dias charging on the right flank. Mumbai start on an attacking note
1' The home side in red, nicknamed the Red Machines, and the away side in yellow
1' We're underway as Mumbai kick off the first half
There appears to be a five minute delay as the toss takes place and the teams line up for their photos
The players are finally walking out to the FIFA Anthem and the flag that reads "We Win Through Fair Play"
It's about time but the players are yet to walk out on the pitch.
A few rows in the stands of the stadium are gradually getting occupied as there are less than five minutes to kick off
Just the one change for Churchill Brothers - Trinidad and Tobago striker Anthony Wolfe starts in place of Aniston Fernandes for the home side as the visitors' coach Santosh Kashyap has named an unchanged first 11.
The tickets are priced at 100 INR at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco, Goa. Far from even quarter of the 7000 capacity stadium is occupied at the moment with 15 minutes to kick off
