Aridane Santana equalised to cancel out Marcelinho's goal inside two minutes and Santana won and converted the penalty on the stroke of half-time that proved to be the winner.

90+3' Adil Khan goes for a spectacular, long-range effort as the clock ticks down to full-time. As with his effort in the first half, it flies harmlessly out for a goal kick.

90' We are into four minutes of stoppage time

89' SAVED! Odisha FC goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro produces a reflex save to deny Giles Barnes from scoring with a header and keep the score 2-1. Odisha has committed plenty of players forward in search of an equaliser and Matthew Kilgallon puts in a cross from Odisha's left, finding Barnes near the penalty spot. Giles connects with it perfectly and forces a save from Dorronsoro, who does well to push it away from danger.

86' OHHH! Bobo's header flies wide of the far post and it remains 2-1! Mohammed Yasir picks out Bobo with the perfect cross, Bobo gets the jump on Gaurav Bora and gets good power on his header. It's fractionally wide, and Odisha FC can breathe a sigh of relief.

84' Substitution for Hyderabad FC: Nestor Gordillo OFF, Mohammed Yasir ON

77' OHHH! Sahil Tavora goes for a curling effort and hits it well, doesn't get the bend he was looking for and the Odisha FC goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro is able to watch it dribble away for a goal kick. Nestor Gordillo involved in the build-up again, this time laying the ball for Sahil, who took a touch and from an excellent angle for a right-footed curling shot, registers a good shot.

75' Substitution for Hyderabad FC: Nikhil Poojary OFF, Giles Barnes ON

66' Good passing and build-up play from Hyderabad FC! Marcelinho picks the ball up in the middle-third and sprays it out to Nestor Gordillo on the left. He creates space for himself and stands up a near-unstoppable cross with his left foot. Asish Rai, the Hyderabad right-back, makes a run into the box and the cross almost finds him at the back-post. It goes fractionally behind him and out for a goal kick.

62' Shubham Sarangi concedes a free-kick on the Odisha FC right following a challenge Sahil Tavora. Marcelinho, the dead-ball specialist, looks to whip in a cross and pick out a Hyderabad FC player in the box, ultimately overhits it, though, and it's gone out for a goal kick.

58' Double substitution for Odisha FC: Vinit Rai OFF, Daniel Lalhlimpuia ON; Xisco Hernandez OFF, Martin Guedes ON. It means Odisha FC has made the three allowed substitutions.

49' SAVE, SAVE, CROSSBAR! Hyderabad FC goalkeeper Kamaljit Singh makes a double save to keep the score to 2-1 before Vinit Rai hits the crossbar with a curling effort. Xisco Hernandez then puts in an ugly challenge from behind and escapes with a yellow card.

46' We are ready for the second half. Hyderabad FC gets us underway, playing from left to right.

SECOND HALF

Half-time: PEEP, PEEP, PEEP! It's been a breathless first half, both goalkeepers tested and, by the end, Hyderabad FC has tossed away another lead. Odisha will be the happier team after Aridane Santana's penalty, but Hyderabad will take inspiration from its attacking display.

45+3' 2-1! Aridane Santana wins a penalty and converts it, putting Odisha FC 2-1 up. More importantly, Hyderabad is a man down after Dimple Bhagat is sent off for a second red card following his foul on Santana.

45+1' CROSSBAR! Nestor Gordillo with a dipping effort that beats Francisco Dorronsoro and pings back off the crossbar. Nestor has been Hyderabad's biggest threat and he almost puts it 2-1 up.

44' Substitution for Odisha: Nandhakumar Sekar is stretchered off, replaced by Lalchhuanmawia Fanai

36' CHANCE MISSED! Nestor Gordilla misses a chance from inside the six-yard box. He had to bend it around Francisco Dorronsoro after working his way past Shubham Sarangi. He opts for power, was leaning back slightly as he struck it, and from yards out, blazes it over the crossbar. Odisha living dangerously. The chance came after Bobo finds Marcelinho with a header, Marcelinho tries to play the ball onto the path of Nestor Gordillo on the left flank. Sarangi tries to shepherd the ball over the byeline. Nestor does well to keep the ball in play and with some good footwork, creates a goal-scoring chance for himself.

33' PENALTY SAVED! Francisco Dorronsoro has been busy in the Odisha goal tonight, and he may have made his most significant contribution yet. Shubham Sarangi concedes the penalty. Bobo looks to find the right corner from the spot, Dorronsoro times his dive to perfection, gets his right hand to it and palms it away for a corner.

27' WIDE! Bobo shoots wide from the edge of the penalty area. Sahil Tavora with a perfectly-weighted layoff and Bobo cut across the ball a fraction, and it swerved away from the target.

26' Adil Khan shoots from long range, seeing Francisco Dorronsoro off his line. The ball sails well over the crossbar. Odisha FC cedes possession near the centre circle and Adil Khan had more time than he perhaps thought.

21' Substitution for Hyderabad FC: Rohit Kumar has been stretchered off, replaced by Sahil Tavora

15' EQUALISER! Aridane Santana converts from close range after sloppy defending from Hyderabad FC. Matthew Kilgallon fails to deal with the long throw-in, the ball bounces off the chest of Gurtej Singh and Marcos Tebar forces a save off Kamaljit Singh. The ricochet then falls kindly for Santana, whose first-time effort finds its way to the corner after taking a touch off Dimple Bhagat, who was trying to make a block on the goal-line.

10' OVER THE CROSSBAR! Jerry Mawihmingthanga lays the ball for Xisco Hernandez to hit first time from the edge of the penalty area. He does go for the first-time effort, miscues his strike and the ball flies harmlessly over the crossbar.

8' OHHH. Odisha FC's Narayan Das whips in a cross, trying to find Aridane Santana in the box. It's over-hit fractionally and the loose ball finds its way to Kamaljit Singh. First big chance of the match for the visiting Odisha.

6' This is a confident start from Hyderabad FC. The early goal has settled the nerves and that's evident in the way the players are moving the ball. However, the team needs a second to allow the players to play with more freedom.

2' GOAL! Marcelinho puts Hyderabad FC 1-0 up with a volleyed effort. Nestor Gordilla picks out Nikhil Poojary with a cross from the right flank, Poojary's effort is saved by Francisco Dorronsoro, but the ricochet falls at the feet of Marcelinho, who, with a crisp hit, finds the bottom-left corner.
