Jamshedpur FC coach Owen Coyle: "Yeah I think first half we controlled the game. East bengal was happy to sit behind in the first half and play on the counter. We are disappointed not to win the game. We totally dominated the chances we had and should have won the game."

90+6' A good delivery but the ball found Lima who is not really known for his heading prowess. Ball goes out for a goalkick.

90+5' JFC Corner- Last chance for JFC to clinch three points from the match.

90+3' A tense finish to the match with two minutes remaining.

90+2' CLOSE- An audacious effort by Jacki. Rehenesh was off his line and Jacki chipped the ball from the middle of the park. The ball landed inches over the bar. So close.


88' Perosevic did well to slip the ball through to Jacki, while hugging the touchline. Jacki's cross was disappointing as his low driven ball finds the side-netting.

85' SCEB CHANGE- Joyner comes on for Sourav.

84' SCEB is pegged back at the moment with JFC players putting pressure on the home-team's backline.

82' SHOTS- Thatal's initial shot from a JFC corner is blocked and the rebound falls to Pandita. The young striker shoots at goal but it is not on target.

81' SCEB left-back Hira has been sloppy throughout the night, conceding possession quite a number of times.

80' Devrisevic shoots from the freekick  but the wall does its job.

78' CLOSE- Narender brings down Perosevic inches outside the box. SCEB players want a penalty but it is a freekick.

72' JFC CHANGE- Jordan Murray comes on for Valskis.

71' SCEB CHANGE- Amarjit Singh comes on for Angou.

66' A great bit of skill by SCEB keeper Arindam. With Ishan Pandita coming at full speed, Arindam did well to drag to ball away from him at the last moment to relieve the pressure.

65' Possession stat: SCEB- 41% JFC- 59%

62' JFC trying to create from the flanks but SCEB's backline maintaining their shape well as of now.

60' DOUBLE SCEB CHANGE- Jackichand and Dervisevic comes on for Hnamte and Chima.

57' Perosevic with a great chance to whip one inside the box from a freekick SCEb earned after Hartley's foul on Chima. However, it is a wasted effort as Perosevic floats the ball in, which Rehenesh gathers easily.

55' A long throw by Hira inside JFC's box but nothing comes of it as the ball is cleared away.

52' Sabia puts in a great tackle to stop Perosevic from surging forward. The centre-back has put in a solid shift till now.

50' BOOKING- Sourav Das of SCEB becomes the first player to see yellow.

46' JFC manager Coyle making his intentions quite clear by introducing two attacking players in Thatal and Pandita at the beginning of the second half.

46' HALF-TIME CHANGES- Ishan Pandita and Komal Thatal replace Haldar and Boris.


Two corners-two goals. It has been a half of set-pieces.

After Prce put the Red and Golds ahead with an acrobatic finish at the 17th-minute, Hartley left it late to equalise for JFC with a wonderful header.

Perosevic has been a lively figure for SCEB down the right flank and his duel with Hartley has been one to watch.

Stay tuned!! Second half action after a short break!!


45+3' GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! JFC EQUALISES RIGHT BEFORE HALF-TIME!! ITS SKIPPER HARTLEY!! Like SCEB, Jamshedpur has also scored from a corner at the dying stages of the first half. A great delivery found Hartley's head who did well to guide the ball inside the net.

45+2' Boris has been quite active for JFC from the left flank but the final delivery needs to be better.


44' Rafique with a great run but ends up losing possession to Sabia after a heavy touch. He had Perosevic on his right for support and the pass should have gone to him.

43' The Nigerian gingerly gets up after some medical attention. He should be okay to continue.

42' Worrying signs for SC East Bengal as Chima lies on the pitch after a heavy collision.

35' A good phase of possession by SCEB before Hira Mondal loses the ball while trying to make a surging run from the left flank.

Match halts for a drinks break!!

28' Perosevic attempts a low driven cross from the right flank but Pronay gets a block in. Corner to SCEB.

This time JFC does well to clear the ball.

26' STAT- JFC did not manage a single win after conceding first last season.

24' JFC with a prolonged stretch of possession at the moment. Some good balls being put inside the box but SCEB's backline soaking the pressure efficiently for now.

22' It is a second handball shout from JFC players- this time it was Chima's hand, which was in an unnatural position but referee says nothing doing. Play continues.

20' CHANCE- Mrcela misjudges the bounce of the ball and Boris pouches on his error but keeper Arindam does well to anticipate the situation and ventures out to collect the ball.

17' GOOOOAALLL!!! SC EAST BENGAL SCORES!! ITS PRCE!! It was a well-worked corner by SCEB, which was initially punched away by Rehenesh but Perosevic did well to put it back in. Franjo Prce puts the ball inside the net with an acrobatic finish.  It did take a deflection off a JFC player but Prce's name is on the scoresheet.

16' Perosevic goes for goal directly from the freekick with a shot but the wall does its job.

15' Boris handles the ball in a dangerous area and it is a chance for SC East Bengal to deliver a good ball inside the box.

7' Boris with a chance to deliver a cross from the left flank but the ball played to him was too heavy and the player cannot keep it in play.

5' A quiet start to the game compared to the first two matches of this year's ISL. The tempo of the match is quite slow as of now.

3' SC East Bengal making headway into the opposition as Hira Mondal makes way down the left flank. His pressure forces JFC to concede a corner.

- MATCH PREVIEW: ISL 2021-22: Jamshedpur FC faces SC East Bengal challenge -

The third match of the Indian Super League (ISL) pits Jamshedpur FC and SC East Bengal who open their season's campaign at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday. Jamshedpur FC, which narrowly missed the semifinals last season, is looking to better its performance by retaining the nucleus of the side under head coach Owen Coyle.

East Bengal, which made a last gasp entry last season, would be looking to put behind the forgetful outing that saw it finishing ninth. The fans of the legacy club are keyed up about the team’s performance under the new Spanish coach Manolo Diaz, who succeeded the Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler.

RELATED| ISL preview: Of contenders and pretenders

East Bengal had a smooth pre-season where it did not lose a match. This will be one of the factors motivating the side to make a good start. Their first meeting last season ended goalless while East Bengal came out victorious (2-1) in the second.

Coyle, who is likely to miss forward Farukh Choudhary owing to injury, will have to marshal his side well considering that the opponent boasts of a good mix of Indian and foreign recruits.

Manolo has no fitness issues in the side but his biggest challenge will be to get the fresh batch of recruits to settle to his strategy and plans.
