Catch Sportstar’s highlights of the Mohun Bagan Super Giant vs Punjab FC ISL 2023-24 group stage clash from the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata. This was Aneesh Dey bringing out all the pre-match buildup and live updates from the clash.

  • September 23, 2023 22:36

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant begins title defence with a 3-1 win against Punjab FC.

  • September 23, 2023 22:35

    Ricky floats a cross towards Majcen, but Ashish Pradhan gets the telling touch. Kaith is not troubled and the Mariners get a goalkick.

  • September 23, 2023 22:33

    The Mariners could not have asked for a better title defence. Apart from a brief period of pressure and a sloppy goal conceded, Juan Ferrando’s team has clearly been the better team.

  • September 23, 2023 22:30

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

  • September 23, 2023 22:30

    MBSG booking: Abhishek becomes the latest player to get a yellow card.

  • September 23, 2023 22:27

    PFC sub: IN- Ricky OUT- Brandon

  • September 23, 2023 22:26

    Armando Sadiku does well to stay onside as he played a good pass over the top. He makes his way inside the Punjab box and opts for a grounded shot, but sends the ball straight to the Punjab keeper.

  • September 23, 2023 22:24

    Sadiku shoots around the wall from an ambitious distance. Kiran had it covered as the ball goes out of play.

  • September 23, 2023 22:21

    Boumous slips a pass to Manvir, who tries to find Sadiku with a low cross to the centre of the box. The cross is intercepted and Punjab FC concedes a corner.

  • September 23, 2023 22:19

    MBSG subs: IN- Hnamte, Abhisekh OUT- Glan, Sahal.

  • September 23, 2023 22:18

    Sahal sees Ashish in space on the right flank and finds him a well-measured ball. Asish has all the time and space to pick out a teammate but his cross is disappointing as it goes out of play.

  • September 23, 2023 22:15

    Play resumes!

  • September 23, 2023 22:14

    Play has halted momentarily as the players take a drinks break.

  • September 23, 2023 22:12

    Krishnananda gets the ball after a sloppy pass from the MBSG players. He has time and space and goes for a shot from miles out. However, his shot is nowhere near the target.

  • September 23, 2023 22:09

    MBSG subs: IN- Boumous, Sadiku OUT- Petratos, Cummings

  • September 23, 2023 22:07

    Punjab FC sub: IN- Shareef, Krishnananda OUT - Prabhu, Prasanth

  • September 23, 2023 22:03

    Talk about making an impact - Petratos sends the ball inside the box with a low cross. Manvir makes a good run to get to the ball and flick it inside the net. That was his first touch after coming on from the bench.

  • September 23, 2023 22:03

    MBSG sub: IN- Manvir OUT- Subhasish

  • September 23, 2023 22:02

    Ashish Pradhan heads the ball inside the net from Juan Mera’s cross. There is a moment of celebration before Pradhan saw that the flag had been raised for offside.

  • September 23, 2023 21:57

    It is a good spell of pressure from Punjab FC. Mohun Bagan looks a bit shaky, and Punjab would do well to make full use of it. The Mariners will not be on the backfoot for long and they have a lot of options on the bench as well.

  • September 23, 2023 21:53

    It is a sloppy backpass from Glan Martins and Luka Majcen is there to pounce on the mistake. Kaith rushed out to narrow the angle but Majcen gets the slighest of touches as the ball creeps under Kaith and into the empty net.

  • September 23, 2023 21:49

    Asish Rai finds the net with an excellent finish but it would not count because the referee had already blown his whistle before that. Sahal had fouled Talal before Rai had taken the shot.

  • September 23, 2023 21:46

    Madih Talal sends in a good ball inside the box. Prasanth meets the ball at the near-post and shoot first-time. He hits the side-netting.

  • September 23, 2023 21:44

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant leads Punjab FC by 2-0 as the second-half gets underway at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan.

  • September 23, 2023 21:28

    Goals by Jason Cummings and Dimi Petratos keeps Mohun Bagan Super Giant in a 2-0 lead against Punjab FC at the break.

  • September 23, 2023 21:27

    Petratos pings in an excellent cross to find Yuste at the back-post. Yuste goes low but the keeper does well to make the save.

  • September 23, 2023 21:26

    Prasanth tries to find Luka, but his pass is blocked and Punjab FC has a corner in first-half added time.

    Talal takes the corner but Subhasish clears the ball without fuss.

  • September 23, 2023 21:23

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

  • September 23, 2023 21:21

    Asish Rai tries to find Sahal at the near-post with a first-time cross, but overhits it to concede a goalkick..

  • September 23, 2023 21:20

    Booking: Glan Martins of MBSG is the latest to see a yellow card for his challenge on Brandon.

  • September 23, 2023 21:19

    Glan and Brandon races to get to the ball. The latter wins the race but is brought down from behind by Glan.

  • September 23, 2023 21:18

    Booking: Talal is shown a yellow card, most likely due to dissent.

  • September 23, 2023 21:17

    Madih Talal is brought down inside the box by Brendan Hamill. Talal wants a penalty but the flag had gone up for offside.

  • September 23, 2023 21:12

    Cummings shows immaculate vision to thread a ball for Colaco inside the Punjab box. Chemjong rushed in to narrow Colaco’s angle but the latter backheels the ball to Petratos, who blasts the ball inside the open net.

    That was incredible play and a brilliant assist for Colaco.

  • September 23, 2023 21:10

    Punjab FC’s Nikhil Prabhu loses the ball cheaply and suddenly Mohun Bagan are on the attack. Glan Martins finds Petratos with a first-time pass, who in turn, threads a ball to Cummings who had made a run inside the box. Before Cummings could take a shot, Lhungdim puts in a great challenge to prevent that.

  • September 23, 2023 21:05

    Cummins cuts in from the right and goes for a shot with his left. The ball takes a deflection and goes out for a corner.

    Petratos delivers a good corner but Punjab keeper Chemjong collects the ball comfortably.

  • September 23, 2023 21:04

    Juan Mera delivers a seareching cross inside the cross from a Punjab freekick. Nikhil Prabhu tries to get at the end of the cross but it is too heavy as it goes out of play.

  • September 23, 2023 21:01

    Majority of the play is restricted to the Punjab final third as of now. The difference in quality is distinctly visible as the Mariners are dominating in all departments. The I-League champion cannot find an outlet.

  • September 23, 2023 20:56

    Petratos has a look and pulls the trigger from distance, but his effort is nowhere near the target. He raises his hands in apology as he had teammates in support.

  • September 23, 2023 20:55

    Majcen gets at the end of a cross from the right flank and tries to guide the ball towards goal, but he ends up shooting over the bar.

    Eventually, the assistant referee raises his flag for offside.

  • September 23, 2023 20:54

    Subhasish tries to thread a pass to Cummings from the left flank as the latter had made a good run. However, Asisi does well to intercept the pass and clear it to safety.

  • September 23, 2023 20:52

    It will be a difficult task for Punjab now. In front of a strong Mohun Bagan crowd, the newly-promoted team needs to hold on. The next goal will be crucial.

  • September 23, 2023 20:47

    Asish Rai finds Sahal with an excellent cutback from the right. Sahal’s touch takes the ball to Cummings, who makes no mistake in slotting the ball inside the net from point-blank range.

  • September 23, 2023 20:46

    It is a midfield battle right now between the teams. Watch out for Punjab FC’s Juan Mera, who was voted as the best midfielder of the I-League last season.

  • September 23, 2023 20:43

    Colaco finds Petratos with an aerial lob from the left touchline. The Australian takes down the ball with good control under pressure, but the referee blows his whistle for offside.

  • September 23, 2023 20:40

    Mariners head coach Juan Ferrando has gone with a back three by the looks of it. Punjab FC players intently pressing in the opening minutes of the first-half.

    New boys on the block!

    ISL 2023-24: Punjab FC, a club reminiscent of JCT Mills, hopes to create its own brand

    Unlike East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, or even Salgaocar FC, Punjab FC (formerly known as RoundGlass Punjab) is not a legacy club.

  • September 23, 2023 18:31

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant will kick off its title defence by taking on the newly promoted Punjab FC, in an Indian Super League (ISL) 10 fixture at the Salt Lake Stadium on Saturday.

    The second match of the weekend double-header is expected to see a good contest as Punjab, the I-League champion, will be looking to do something extraordinary on its debut against the defending champion and one of the most expensive teams in the tournament.

    The stakes are reasonably high for Mohun Bagan which picked up some prominent Indian players in the pre-season shopping to secure a star-studded squad. This was done with the hope of becoming the first team to retain the crown.

    With the likes of Sahal Abdul Samad, Anirudh Thapa and Anwar Ali joining Mohun Bagan, the green and maroon side won the Durand Cup and then continued its good form in the AFC Cup play-offs and the group league stage.
