    90+1’ CCM 4-0 OFC

    Doka in the thick of the proceedings yet again as he combines with Edmondson to send the latter on a darting run inside the box. Edmondson goes for a shot from a tight angle but it is saved by Amrinder.

    90’ CCM 4-0 OFC

    Five minutes added at the end of the second-half!

  • March 07, 2024 15:17

    It almost seems like Playstation football on amateur mode for the Mariners. The home team launches an attack from the left and the Odisha defence is too slow to react. Doka goes on an excellent run and sets up Barcellos with a pinpoint pass. Barcellos pokes the ball past Amrinder to score Mariners’ fourth of the night. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:17
    85’ CCM 3-0 OFC

    It is not sure what Theoharous intended but his cross/shot almost creeps inside the Odisha goal for a fourth Mariners goal on the night. Theoharous showed good pace to get past Ranawade. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:13

    80’ CCM 3-0 OFC

    Edmondson, who has already bagged an excellent assist, looks to get his name on the scoresheet. This time, he gets on the end of a clever through ball and makes his way inside the Odisha box. He shoots across the face of the goal from the right but cannot hit the target. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:07

    To add salt to the wounds, Doka goes for the Panenka and successfully beats Amrinder, as the Odisha keeper goes the opposite way. It was a calm and composed penalty, which rattles the top-right corner of the Odisha goal. 

    It is a brace for Doka on the night and with a 3-0 lead in the first-leg, Mariners would assume they already have one foot inter-zone final. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:05
    76’ CCM 2-0 OFC

    Penalty to Mariners - Roy Krishna catches Farrell with an extended arm as he tries to win the ball off the Mariners player. Nothing malicious in that but it is a penalty nonetheless. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:04
    74’ CCM 2-0 OFC

    Odisha looks to come back into the in style as a ball is drilled at the edge of the box from a corner. Jahouh goes for a first-time shot on the volley but he cannot hit the target. He had connected fairly well with the effort and if it was on target, it could have troubled Vukovic. 

  • March 07, 2024 15:02
    70’ CCM 2-0 OFC

    Aniket tries to find a pass around the corner but it is a good read by Hall as he anticipates it and wins back possession from Odisha.

    Odisha FC is put under pressure as the home team get three consecutive corners but Lobera’s men backline is in sync and manage to see them out without any danger.

  • March 07, 2024 14:48
    57’ CCM 2-0 OFC

    Odisha FC trying desperately to shift gears after conceding the second. After Mauricio came close, Amey had gotten a chance to trouble Vukovic from the edge of the box. But his shot on the volley was disappointing as the ball sailed above the Mariners goal. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:46
    53’ CCM 2-0 OFC

    Odisha FC almost pulls a goal back as Mauricio takes a shot from inside the box. His connection to the ball is good but the ball takes a deflection and goes out of play. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:41

    Storm Roux combines with Ryan Edmondson in a beautiful one-two to score Mariners’ second. Edmondson just gets ahead of Delgado and threads an excellent through ball to Roux, who had timed his run well inside the box. He has a look up and shoots at the far-post and finds the target. Amrinder dives at full-stretch but cannot get a hand to the ball. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:40
    52’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Nisbet gets the ball at the edge of the box and works out a bit of space himself. Amrinder had already committed himself for the dive at the far-corner, which is why Nisbet looks for the near-post. But his effort is blocked. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:38
    50’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Jahouh floats in a good cross inside the Mariners penalty area. Odisha tries to capitalise but does not really find an opening. The home team launches a counter-attack, putting Odisha on the backfoot but it ends as Doka’s concedes possession with a loose pass. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:36
    46’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Mariners sub: IN- Edmondson OUT- Reec

    Doka’s goal keeps Central Coast Mariners in a 1-0 lead against Odisha FC as the second-half kicks-off at the Central Coast Stadium in New South Wales, Australia.

  • March 07, 2024 14:20

    The first-half has flown by and it is been utter dominance by the Mariners, Don’t let the scoreline fool you. Odisha FC, barring a couple of positive attacking moves late in the first half, have been second best in all departments. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:18
    45+2’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Mariners booking: Tapp sees a yellow card for his reckless challenge on Godard. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:17
    45’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Two minutes added at the end of the first-half!

  • March 07, 2024 14:17
    44’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    It is a tidy and precise performance from the Mariners yet again. Nisbet shows his class, controlling the pass and finding Torres with a reverse pass. Torres shoots across the face of the goal but sees his effort go out of play. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:12
    40’ CCM 1-0 OFC

    Odisha FC finally works Mariners keeper Vukovic, who has been a mere spectator for the most of the clash. 

    Jahouh goes a grounded pass from an Odisha freekick, which finds Krishna. Krishna backheels the ball to Mauricio, who takes a couple of touches, before shooting it at the near-post from a tight angle. Vukovic gets his hand to it but cannot hold on, as the ball goes out for a corner.

  • March 07, 2024 14:06

    It is poor defending from Odisha again and the Mariners finally capitalise on the situation. Nesbet finds Doka with a cutback from the left and Doka’s first time effort rattles the bottom-left corner of the net. 

    The goal was coming in all honesty. Odisha has been completely overrun, as the Mariners have been superior in all departments. 

  • March 07, 2024 14:05
    32’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    Mauricio was eager to make a run on the right but Halls put in a solid challenge to sto Mauricio in their tracks. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:57
    25’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    With the 25-minute having past, Odisha is yet to register its first shot on target. Right now, there is nothing appealing about Odisha’s style of football. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:54
    20’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    Roux tries to find the net by heading the ball at goal from a corner. Roux did well to get in a good position but his header is wide. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:48
    16’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    Balard swings a cross inside the box, which Ranawade intercepts. Ranawade had lot of time to find an outlet but the ball gets stuck under his foot, allowing the Mariners to close in the Odisha defender. In the end, Ranawade keep his nerve to send the ball out for a throw-in under pressure for Farrell. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:45
    12’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    Farrel makes an overlapping on the left and sends in a floating cross, which falls to Reec t the far-post. Reec goes for a shot on the volley and the ball rattles the underside of the crossbar and comes back into play. 

    For a moment, the ball seemed to have gone over the line, that is what the Mariners players were claiming at least. There a couple more chances on the rebound, but the Juggernauts hold on and finally get a reprieve as the referee blows his whistle for a handball. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:41
    9’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    From what looked it like it could be Odisha’s first attacking move of the match, Amey dampens it with a lazy cross from the right flank, which hits the first defender inside the box, giving possession back to the Mariners. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:39
    8’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    By the looks of it, Odisha FC is not going for the press. The Mariners keep possession inside their own-half without much pressure and look to create another opening for the first goal. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:37
    6’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    This time it is Doka who looks to trouble Amrinder, but it is a weak effort from the Mariners winger. Amrinder will collect those all day. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:35
    4’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    It has been all about the Mariners in the opening stages of the match. The Odisha defence has been kept busy till now and Lobera’s men are yet to have a significant passage of possession. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:35
    2’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    Reec sets up Torres for a shot and the latter obliges as he pulls the trigger from the left side of the box, hoping to find the far-corner. But the effort is not on target and the Juggernauts will get a goalkick. A positive start for the home team. 

  • March 07, 2024 13:33
    1’ CCM 0-0 OFC

    A mistake at the back as Delgado fails to control the ball. Reec capitalists on the mistake and collects the loose ball, making his way towards the Odisha goal. One-on-one with Amrinder, he tries to roll it past the Odisha keeper, but the latter makes a good save to prevent a horror start for the Juggernauts.
