That's it, full time here and it finishes 1-1 between Kerala and Mumbai. Kerala will be ruing all those missed chances. Mumbai City will feel they got out of jail here. Not the best of performances but they manage to take away a point. The faces of Kerala staff tell a story there. That's all the action for today folks!

Red Card! More drama here as CK Vineeth is sent off after being booked for simulation, this is his second yellow card and he is sent off. Kerala crowd certainly disappointed as CK Vineeth walks down the tunnel. Balwant certainly got the ball and that was the right decision from the ref.
Dec 3, 2017 9:44 pm (IST)
Balwant with another great chance, but good pressure from Kerala Blasters defence helps them clear the danger as Balwant skies one under pressure.
Dec 3, 2017 9:38 pm (IST)
GOAL! Mumbai City do make Kerala pay for all those missed chances and its Balwant Singh. Emana puts the ball wide and Santos finds Balwant unmarked in the box. Great goal. This sets up the game brilliantly for the final 15 minutes.
Dec 3, 2017 9:35 pm (IST)
Ian Hume comes on for Kerala and Thiago Santos comes in for Mumbai, attacking changes by both teams. Will be interesting to see how this affects the game
Dec 3, 2017 9:28 pm (IST)
Emana takes a shot from distance but its a poor one, the ball goes wide of the goal. Kerala still leading 1-0 here with 68 minutes gone.
Dec 3, 2017 9:24 pm (IST)
Mumbai looking to play on the break now, Kerala Blasters dominating in terms of possession, but after that exciting start to the second half, the game seems to have cooled down a bit.
Dec 3, 2017 9:17 pm (IST)
Mumbai almost make them pay immediately, Santos makes a good turn and hits the ball brilliantly, but Rachukba gets a foot to it and the ball comes back off the post. Almost an equaliser for Mumbai
Dec 3, 2017 9:16 pm (IST)
Vineeth with a glorious chance, Blasters might well rue these missed chances. This time Sifneos first completely misses his shot then Vineeth has a chance but he blazes it over the bar.
Dec 3, 2017 9:13 pm (IST)
Sifneos and Goian getting involved in some heated exchange in the middle. Mumbai certainly getting frustrated here.
Dec 3, 2017 9:09 pm (IST)
Amrinder almost messes up after coming out to collect the ball, he has some miscommunication with captain Goian. Luckily ball falls away from the charging Kerala player
Dec 3, 2017 9:05 pm (IST)
The second half is about to kick off, and some bad news for Kerala. Rino Anto can't continue after picking up an injury in the first half. Pritam Singh replaces him.
Dec 3, 2017 8:50 pm (IST)
Berbatov with a chance now, but he misses. That's the end of an exciting first half and Kerala lead 1-0 here going in at the break. Important second half coming soon!
Dec 3, 2017 8:44 pm (IST)
Great chance from Jackichand Singh to double Kerala's lead. Berbatov with a great ball and Jackichand is one on one with the keeper but he blasts it over the bar. What a chance for Kerala.
Dec 3, 2017 8:39 pm (IST)
After that initial attack, the game seems to have fizzled out a bit. Blasters still maintaining a 1-0 lead as we approach half-time here.
Dec 3, 2017 8:33 pm (IST)
Emana seems to be at the heart of all moves for Mumbai City FC, again he makes a superb run into the box but a poor ball from him allows Blasters to clear any danger.
Dec 3, 2017 8:29 pm (IST)
Superb save from Amrinder! CK Vineeth with a lovely first touch and gets the ball down to hit on the turn, Amrinder dives to his left and makes a great save. Good effort by Jackichand also, who found Vineeth with a lovely ball
Dec 3, 2017 8:26 pm (IST)
First yellow card of the night is received by Pesic after a poor tackle on Emana, who has looked to be only bright spot for Mumbai here. He has been making some good runs but nothing of danger as of now
Dec 3, 2017 8:21 pm (IST)
20 minutes gone and Mumbai are yet to threaten Kerala's goal here. Mumbai can certainly do with some composure on the ball.
Dec 3, 2017 8:16 pm (IST)
GOAL! Kerala Blasters have taken the lead and deservedly so! They have been attacking right from the 1st minute, Sifneos is left unmarked in the box and he gets a crucial touch to Rino Anto's beautiful delivery. What a pass that was, Sifneos didn't get the best of touches but it was still enough to give Kerala the lead. 14 minutes gone and its 1-0/
Dec 3, 2017 8:11 pm (IST)
Wave after wave of Kerala attack and Mumbai can't seem to get hold of the ball in these early exchanges, crucially though the score remains 0-0
Dec 3, 2017 8:08 pm (IST)
Kerala making some early in roads into the Mumbai defence here, they get an early corner and Jhingan almost gets the first goal for Kerala but his shot is blocked. Then, CK Vineeth rolls in a freekick and its again cleared for a corner by Mumbai
Dec 3, 2017 8:04 pm (IST)
Kerala Blasters get us underway here and one big decision is already made by Kerala coach Rene Meulensteen, with Iain Hume dropping to the bench and 18-year old striker Pekuson starting. Will Kerala get their first goal today?
Dec 3, 2017 7:56 pm (IST)
Both sets of players are out and now we are having the national anthem, just minutes away from kick off and the atmosphere is already electric!
