88' Substitution for both sides! Vinit Rai replaces Chhangte for MCFC while Murzaev replaces Damjanovic for CFC

85' GOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! Vikram Singh makes a run behind the CFC defence and turns and beats Debjit to score for Mumbai.

80' Mumbai goes on attack on the break and Vikram turns and loses the ball, which falls for Angulo, but the spaniard fails to keep the ball on target. Poor Miss by Angulo!

80' As tehe match resumes after the break, CFC gets a free kick, which is taken by Thapa, but is cleared by the MCFC defence.

78' Time for another cooling break!

77' Free Kick! Nawaz goes out to defend the ball and ends up conceding a free kick. The kick, taken by Jerry, is attempted to pass into the midfield, but no shot follows in the process. Poor free kick in the circumstances 

72' Shot! Valskis tries to do a Vazquez from distance, but the shot is well off-target. The Lituanian looks desperate to make a mark on his return.

70' Substitution for Chennaiyin FC! Rahim Ali replaces Suhail Pasha. The message is simple -- more attacking power for the Marina Machans

47' Chhangte tries to make a run along the flanks, but his former teammate Damjanovic stops him in his tracks

Second-Half Begins!


Chennaiyin FC 0-0 Mumbai City FC

Chennaiyin FC has been the more defensive of the two sides, being strong enough to mitigate Mumbai City's constant attack. It will be interseting to see if Chhangte continues to be this dangerous in the second half and end up punishing his former side.

45+1' Off-Side! Valskis and Borysiuk pair up following Thapa's free kick, but the linesman raises the flag to rule an off-side

43' Free Kick! Chhangte takes the free kick which is fisted away by Debjit and further cleared by Borysiuk.

39' Bipin gets the ball in the penalty box this time, but Ninthoi marks him well and heads the ball out of trouble

38' Attack after attack after attack by Mumbai City FC. It looks like MCFC is playing against a blue wall, with Chhangte failing to exploit the situation

34' CHANCE! Borysiuk goes for goal from distance, but the shot was just off target as the score remains goalless. Chennaiyin FC trying to attack afresh after a defensive half-an-hour.

32' As match begins after the cooling break, MCFC is being pressed on by Chennaiyin FC with Cassio fouled by Suhail Pasha

30' Time for a cooling break!

27' Ninthoi tries to become a hero whipping the ball in from the right flank, bugt it looks neither like a cross, nor like a shot for goal as this attack of CFC comes to an end

22' Chhangte makes a run along the right and stops and turns and goes for goal, but Debjit makes yet another save.

19' Save! Cassio makes a run along the right, steals the ball and passes it for Angulo, who goes for goal, but Debjit saves it

17' Free Kick! Jahouh takes the free kick from the right side of the field, but it is overhit and it misses every player in the penalty box

When Chennaiyin FC takes on Mumbai City FC on Sunday in Fatorda, the circumstance couldn’t have been more different from the first time the two sides met earlier in the competition.

Last December, both teams had strong starts to their ISL campaign, and in a closely-contested match, Mumbai prevailed with a late winner in the 86th minute to pocket three points.

Since then, both sides have been scrappy and are going through a rough patch with negligible success in recent times.

Chennaiyin has just one win in the last five matches and had a poor match against SC East Bengal, where it squandered a 2-0 lead in the first half by conceding a late equaliser.


CFC’s strength was its compact defence, but the fact that it has let the team down often in recent times is a cause for worry.

“We need to keep our full concentration in the defensive set-piece. We need to mark well. Now we play against one of the best teams and they have strong players. We need to be focused and try to dominate the game," said CFC Coach Bozidar Bandovic.

The team has suffered two injury blows, with Vladimir Koman and Sajid Dhot both ruled out for Sunday’s fixture.

Meanwhile, Mumbai is searching for its first win since the 1-0 victory over Chennaiyin, but coach Des Buckingham is hopeful his team can regain the form shown in the first part of the season.

"The way we have played in the last few games, I am very happy. We have got seven games now, and starting tomorrow, the aim will be to get back to winning ways," said Buckingham.
