Full Time: Mumbai City FC beat Chennaiyin FC 1-0
Dec 10, 2017 9:49 pm (IST)
Minutes to go and Mumbai are looking to play keep ball even as Chennai try to get a move on late in the game. All the misses from Rafi earlier in the game are hurting them now.
Dec 10, 2017 9:46 pm (IST)
Calderon takes the free-kick and belts it into the wall. The ball flies over for a corner. The set piece does not cross even the first defender.
Dec 10, 2017 9:45 pm (IST)
Calderon was about to shoot but Goain got his leg in the way and the visitors have a free-kick in a very dangerous position. Amrinder is setting up his wall.
Dec 10, 2017 9:44 pm (IST)
Final 5 minutes before stoppage time. Chennai have used all their subs with attacking players and they are all in attack. Rafa Jorda easily went through the visitors defense but tried to be cheeky and score but Karanjit was watching the ball all through.
Dec 10, 2017 9:41 pm (IST)
Thiago Santos the sub with raw pace is giving the tired Chennai defenders a hard time. He eased past the back line but failed to get a shot off.
Dec 10, 2017 9:35 pm (IST)
Mumbai had a good chance to make use of a set piece at the edge of the box, but Sehnaj who has had a bad day at the office can't make this count.
Dec 10, 2017 9:33 pm (IST)
Rafa Jorda in space once again, but his dink over the keeper is just off target. A second goal for Mumbai would put the seal on the game surely. About 15 minutes to go, a goal for Chennaiyin will turn the game on it's head.
Dec 10, 2017 9:30 pm (IST)
Chennai have suddenly upped the ante with an injection of fresh legs. The Mumbai faithful are waiting with baited breath as Chennai have the ability to comeback and they surely don't want that at Balewadi.
Dec 10, 2017 9:29 pm (IST)
Rafa Jorda is running circles around the Chennai defenders, and he has his shirt pulled before being brought down, the ref waves play on though. At the other end Jeje is trying to get into the act too. Chennaiyin have a corner.
Dec 10, 2017 9:26 pm (IST)
Emana and Jerry have a go at each other, it is quite a mismatch actually. The linesman just steps in to dissolve anything troublesome.
Dec 10, 2017 9:24 pm (IST)
Chennaiyin are now going to throw in Jeje soon along with Raphael Agusto in a bid to save this match. One expects Rafi to be taken off after the number of misses.
Dec 10, 2017 9:21 pm (IST)
Rafi had another chance to score and scuffed it. Amrinder in goal is not happy with his defenders
Dec 10, 2017 9:19 pm (IST)
Chennai will rue the missed chances so far. They need to pull up their socks to get something out of this game.
Dec 10, 2017 9:18 pm (IST)
GOAL: Mumbai City FC 1-0 Chennaiyin FC. Emana slots it home comfortably past Karanjit Singh and sends him the other way.
Dec 10, 2017 9:17 pm (IST)
In the commentary box, Paul Masefield is making his opinion clear about how the decision is wrong.
Dec 10, 2017 9:16 pm (IST)
Mailson takes the ball of Balwant, who falls down very theatrically, and it is a Mumbai penalty. The replays show the tackle was outside the box, with minimal contact. Terrible call or rather a mistake from the referee could produce the game's first goal.
Dec 10, 2017 9:15 pm (IST)
Mumbai with Everton and Emana have been far more expansive in their way of playing, so have Chennaiyin and this contest will continue to be a tight one. A moment of inspiration or mistake is likely to solve this.
Dec 10, 2017 9:13 pm (IST)
Everton floated in a nice ball to the second post, but Goain's attempted bicycle kick goes all wrong and he falls down awkwardly.
Dec 10, 2017 9:11 pm (IST)
Thoi Singh has another crack at goal from a tight angle, he hits the target but Amrinder is in the way again.
Dec 10, 2017 9:10 pm (IST)
For all the pressure and good build up play from Mumbai, Chennaiyin have had the best chances on the night, and it is surprising if not shocking as to why they have not been able find the back of the net.
Dec 10, 2017 9:08 pm (IST)
Emana's ball in for Rafa is good, he knocks it down for Everton, but Chennaiyin clear for a corner. Ruidas to take with the big boys in the box.
Dec 10, 2017 9:07 pm (IST)
Emana tries to get Rafa through before Chennaiyin clear purposefully, and Rafi finds himself one on one with Amrinder. The keeper saves but Thoi Singh had an open net from 3 yards out to take the lead, but he slices the tap in out of play. Definitely does not look like Chennai's day.
Dec 10, 2017 9:03 pm (IST)
The second half has kicked off, and Emana almost gets Everton through, but Chennaiyin stop that move and make race forward to win a throw.
Dec 10, 2017 8:48 pm (IST)
Half Time: Mumbai City FC 0-0 Chennaiyin FC
Dec 10, 2017 8:47 pm (IST)
Having said that, Rafi now gets his header on target with some pace on it, but it is straight at Amrinder who has no problems collecting it.
Dec 10, 2017 8:47 pm (IST)
Chennai have asked a few questions of the Mumbai defense in what has been a slow first half.
Dec 10, 2017 8:45 pm (IST)
Chennaiyin's corner comes through to an unmarked Mohd Rafi who's header is defensive more than attacking with him being a couple of yards away from the goal. Chennai should have taken the lead with that. Rafi did not expect that ball to come through
Dec 10, 2017 8:41 pm (IST)
Still goalless with 5 odd minutes to go in the half. From the looks of it, one will have to wait for a moment of inspiration or mistake to get the scoreboard going.
Dec 10, 2017 8:40 pm (IST)
Mumbai had a free-kick a distance out, and Emana was trying to catch the keeper off guard but the dip on the shot was not enough.
