    Job well done for the Mariners!

    Full-Time MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Mohun Bagan with a comfortable win over Punjab FC to go top of Group A. Wasn’t the most fluent of displays, mainly due to the conditions following the rain, but MBSG does its job ahead of the much awaited Kolkata derby against East Bengal on Saturday.

    A Melroy Assisi own goal after a Manvir cross opened the scoring for the Mariners and a an easy finish for Boumous in the second half following a mistake by the keeper confirms the 3 points for Mohun Bagan Super Giant.

    Punjab FC did well in patches, Brandon in particular finding some space but Juan Mera’s strike against the crossbar was its only real chance. Punjab faces Bangladesh Army next at the VYBK on Thursday.

  • August 07, 2023 19:50
    91’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Juan Mera is down in the box after a tackle from the defender, following some brilliant one-two play with Ricky. The referee says no.

  • August 07, 2023 19:48

    Four minutes of stoppage time added at the end of the second half.

  • August 07, 2023 19:47

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant content on passing it around three minutes before the end of normal time. Lyngdoh with a chance to cross for Punjab but hits it to the side netting.

  • August 07, 2023 19:43
    84’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    A slight push from the back by the Punjab FC defender on Kiyan Nassiri, the referee says no to the penalty appeals. Kiyan is unhappy, signals to the referee that he was taken down.

  • August 07, 2023 19:42

    A chance for Anwar Ali following a Petratos corner. But no real power on the header and the keeper completes an easy catch.

  • August 07, 2023 19:40
    82’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    A chance for Maheson at the edge of the box. Shuffles the ball either side to create some space but the shot is deflected for a corner. The corner is too long and MBSG clear.

  • August 07, 2023 19:37

    Captain Subhashish Bose is replaced by Sumit Rathi for the Mariners.

  • August 07, 2023 19:36
    78’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Lyngdoh attempts a long ranger from the right, almost near the half line. No trouble for Kaith at all. Good idea from the youngster but nowhere near the execution required.

  • August 07, 2023 19:34
    75’ Chance!

    Another chance for Ranjeet after an excellent through ball from the midfield. Only manages to hit the side netting. Hamill found wanting there in the MBSG defence.

  • August 07, 2023 19:32
    73’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Ranjeet was almost through on goal, Anwar Ali with an excellent tackle. Referee’s flag up for offside though.

    Samuel James Lyngdoh and Ranjeet Pandre replaces Majcen and Brandon for Punjab FC.

  • August 07, 2023 19:27

  • August 07, 2023 19:23
    64’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Important interception from Nikhil Prabhu after Liston tried to cut back into the box from the left flank. Needed a more pinpoint pass to find his teammate in the box.

  • August 07, 2023 19:21

    Juan Mera with some quick feet to create space near the box and put a cross in. Doesn’t reach Majcen though and the defence clears.

  • August 07, 2023 19:19
    61’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Kiyan Nassiri replaces Hugo Boumous for MBSG. Maheson replaces Krishnanandha and Ricky replaces Amarjit Singh Kiyam for Punjab FC.

  • August 07, 2023 19:18

    Punjab slowly growing into the game this half. Brandon has been key for the team. Krishnanandha has had a few crossing opportunities which has gone waste.

  • August 07, 2023 19:14
    56’ Save!!

    Kaith with an important save!! The cross to Majcen is chested down and he does well to find some space and shoot. Kaith does well to go down and save from such close range.

  • August 07, 2023 19:13

    Poor cross from Krishnanandha after Brandon’s pass found him in space. Majcen was in wait at the far post and it flies over his head.

  • August 07, 2023 19:11
    53’ MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

    Liston with another crossing opportunity from the left. Went for a short cross to the near post but it is safely gathered by the keeper.

  • August 07, 2023 19:09
    49’ Chance!!

    A chance immediately for Punjab and Juan Mera strikes the post with a thunderous strike! Replays suggest Kaith might have got a fingertip on it. Punjab almost striking back immediately.

  • August 07, 2023 19:06
    Goal!!! Boumous scores!

    Boumous scores for MBSG! Excellent one-two from Liston and Petratos to create the crossing opportunity for the former. The keeper makes a mess of it and it falls straight to Boumous who scores one of his easiest goals.

    MBSG 2 - 0 PFC

  • August 07, 2023 19:05
    47’ MBSG 1 - 0 PFC

    Early chance for Punjab as Brandon finds space in the box. His shot is too high though. Possibly the best chance Punjab has had all match.

  • August 07, 2023 19:03
    Second Half kicks off

    Juan Mera replaces Leon Augustine for Punjab FC. Petratos replaces Suhail Bhat for Mohun Bagan Super Giant. MBSG kick us off.

  • August 07, 2023 18:50

    A very sedate first half at the KBK. Both the sides unable to muster even a single shot on target. An unfortunate own goal from Melroy following Manvir’s cross is the difference between the two sides. Punjab made some headway down the wings but no real opportunities created for its strikers. Join us in 15.

  • August 07, 2023 18:48

    A chance late in the half for Punjab, Krishnanandha crosses the ball in from the left after an excellent run, the MBSG defence clears.

  • August 07, 2023 18:45

    2 minutes of added time at the end of the half.

  • August 07, 2023 18:44
    43’ MBSG 1 - 0 BFC

    Boumous’ corner is headed out by the Punjab defence. Falls right to Glan Martins, whose shot from long range flies just over the bar.

  • August 07, 2023 18:42

    Boumous with the ball on the MBSG left wing but Lhungdim does well to prevent him from going forward further. Boumous drifting outwards showing that the Punjab team has been able to restrict space for him in the middle of the pitch.

  • August 07, 2023 18:39
    37’ MBSG 1 - 0 PFC

    Leon does well to dribble past two MBSG players in the Punjab right wing, the ball is eventually taken off his feet though. He has been Punjab’s best player this half.

  • August 07, 2023 18:36

    Despite the goal, Punjab has done well keeping it tight at the back. MBSG has been forced into longer and tougher balls through to its strikers. Still some work to do in the front of the field though . No clear cut chances as yet.

  • August 07, 2023 18:32
    31’ MBSG 1 - 0 PFC

    Krishnanandha finds space in the left wing for Punjab but his cross is wayward and is out for a Mohun Bagan goal kick.

  • August 07, 2023 18:28

    Colaco with a free kick from the left wing. Manvir almost pokes it towards goal, but Melroy clears.

  • August 07, 2023 18:23
    23’ Goal!! MBSG lead!

    MBSG scores!! Manvir used his strength to get to the byline and put a cross in from the right, the Punjab FC defender Melroy slips while trying to clear and puts it in his own net. Suhair was lurking right behind him as well.

    MBSG 1 - 0 PFC

  • August 07, 2023 18:22

    A freekick for Punjab from the right flank. Brandon crosses it into a crowded box but the MBSG defence clear their lines.

  • August 07, 2023 18:20
    19’ MBSG 0 - 0 PFC

    First chance of the game from MBSG after a cross from the right flank by Manvir, the defender and keeper almost came together, trying to deal with the cross but they manage to get it away. Martins’ follow up shot is blocked by the defence.

  • August 07, 2023 18:18

    An ugly challenge from Subhashish on Leon, the referee shows the game’s first yellow card. Unnecessary challenge that by the Mohun Bagan skipper.

  • August 07, 2023 18:16

    Colaco drives through the left-wing and crosses in, the defender kicks it out without much control. Suhail’s shot following the corner is too high.

  • August 07, 2023 18:15
    14’ MBSG 0 - 0 PFC

    Subhashish loses his shoe trying to guard the ball for a throw-in at the left flank. He slips and falls in the process signalling the wet conditions due to the rain.

  • August 07, 2023 18:12

    Abhishek Suryawanshi attempts a long ranger from outside the box, keeps rising high and no trouble for the Punjab keeper.

  • August 07, 2023 18:09
    8’ MBSG 0 - 0 PFC

    A long ball from Boumous looking for a run from the left wing, Punjab keeper Kiran keeps his calm and takes it in his stride just ahead of Manvir.

  • August 07, 2023 18:08

    Mohun Bagan with control of posession in the early minutes. Punjab has pressed well forcing the opposition to stick to sideward and backward passes.

  • August 07, 2023 18:04
    3’ MBSG 0 - 0 PFC

    Colaco with a determined run through the middle but the ball gets stuck under his feet. The ground conditions not really supporting such dribbles.

  • August 07, 2023 18:02

    MBSG with an early attack down the left wing. Punjab FC back in numbers and the attack is thwarted.

  • August 07, 2023 18:00

    Punjab to get things underway. Mohun Bagan in its full white strip. Punjab FC sporting its orange kit.

  • August 07, 2023 17:55
    5 minutes to Kick-off

    The players and match officials are out in the middle. Quite a few umbrellas in the crowd today. The heavy rain might be a factor in the conditions of play today.

    Mohun Bagan Super Giant will take on Punjab FC in its second game of the group A match of the Durand Cup here at Kishore Bharati Stadium on Monday.

    While Mohun Bagan began its campaign with a 5-0 win over Bangladesh Army Football team, Punjab will play its first game.

    There are enough names in the 26-member Punjab squad headed by Greek coach Staikos Vergetis who can ruffle the feathers of The Mariners, who in turn were not quite challenged in their first game against BAFT.

    Upfront, Punjab has a goal machine in Luka Majcen, the Slovenian poacher who has found the next 50 timed in his four-seasons in India stint across clubs so far. Other names like Leon Augustine, Amarjit Kiyam and Nepalese Kiran Limbu have been proven performers as well.
