Full time: Hyderabad 1-1 Mumbai City: A last-minute penalty-kick from Stankovic leaves Mumbai City distraught as Hyderabad has forced Mumbai into a 1-1 draw. Drama, drama, drama!

93' - Penalty to Hyderabad! GOAL! Stankovic steps up for the spot-kick and he sends Amrinder the wrong way! Hyderabad has a last-minute equaliser! Mumbai players are heartbroken. The penalty was awarded after the referee found Pratik guilty of a foul on Bobo in the box.

90' - Four minutes have been added.

86' - Barnes, after a lapse of concentration from Mumbai, runs to the Mumbai box. Pratik clears the danger with a tackle. Barnes has injured his knee in the process.

85' - Larbi, the goal scorer, is coming off now. He is being replaced by Bipin.

83' - Barnes is going to come on next for Hyderabad. He replaces Poojary.

78' - Pratik brings down Poojary with a nasty challenge. He gets booked and will miss the next game. Meanwhile, Bidyananda has replaced Sourav!

77' - BLOCKED! Adil with a last-minute ditch to deny Kevyn from five yards from goal following a Carlos cross.

75' - Raynier finds Larbi on the left side and just as Kevyn makes his run in the box looking for a pass, Adil blocks Larbi!

73' - Off a Marcelinho corner-kick, Kilgallon heads the ball which, like earlier, falls just wide of the goal.

73' - Kevyn has entered the referee's book for a foul.

71' - Chermiti comes off and on comes Raynier for Mumbai.

64' - Second change for Hyderabad: Halder in, Yasir off.

63' - Marcelinho scores from distance but it does not trouble Amrinder because the shot is straight at him. Marcelinho ruins the chance after Poojary paced up the right flank, getting the better of his marker Borges.

60' - End to end action! First Marcelinho causes trouble from the left flank but Tavora fails to shoot from 18 yards out. On the counter, Kevyn rushes up the field before Larbi crosses the ball for Carlos, who misses from 10 yards!

59' - A good tackle from Pratik stops Stankovic from creating any danger from inside the Mumbai box.

55' - Sarthak calmly clears the cross from Poojary from the right flank. Yasir made his run towards the delivery but Sarthak dealt with it well. Nonetheless, a good move from Hyderabad's attackers.

42' - Penalty! The referee points towards the spot and books Poojary for handball in the box. Kevyn was surging towards goal when Poojary and Adil were marking him. The ball bounced off Poojary's arm when Kevyn took a shot.

39' - Larbi's delivery, aimed for the far post, is cleared out for another corner. The subsequent set-piece is headed away by Adil.

38' - A clean, timely tackle from Adil to stop the onrushing Kevyn in the Hyderabad box. A corner is awarded to Mumbai.

36' - WIDE! Kevyn does so well to send the Hyderabad defender helpless at the edge of the box but his shot after taking a turn is way off target.

34' - Das goes into the ref's book as he pulls down Marcelinho who makes a run towards Mumbai's box.

30' - The half-hour mark has been crossed but the deadlock is yet to be broken. Hyderabad has hardly tested the Mumbai defenders. Mumbai attackers haven't been clinical either so far.

26' - Marcelinho! The Hyderabad striker charges towards goal and squares the ball, which is met by none of the men in black. The delivery rolls out of play.

26' - Yasir keeps going from deep midfield to further up. He passes the ball to Ralte but Ralte's poor touch gives away the ball to Mumbai.

20' - Marcelinho tries his luck from 30 yards out but the shot goes over the post.

16' - WIDE! Rai puts in a cross towards the far post from the right flank. It is just out of the reach of Marcelinho and it goes out for a throw in.

14' - OFFSIDE, GOAL DISALLOWED! Larbi is flagged offside and his volley off a Carlos cross is cancelled out. Kevyn and Larbi started the move, with Sarthak taking things further up the field with his contribution from the right flank.

8' - Corner for Mumbai and Larbi takes it. He sends it in but Adil heads it away. The loose ball is picked out by Das but he sends it out of play.

7' - First real attack of the game as Kevyn fires a cross from the right side, which is easily collected by Kattimani.

4' - Yasir and Sarthak collide at the edge of the box which gifts a free-kick to the visitor. Nothing worthwhile comes off it.

Match preview (By V.V. Subrahmanyam)

After a forgettable outing in the Indian Super League so far, Hyderabad FC now hopes to salvage some pride when it takes on Mumbai City FC at the GMC Balayogi Stadium today.

The bottom-placed Hyderabad side, which has just one win from 13 matches, has had a disappointing run.

Interim head coach, Javier Lopez, has admitted that the team had conceded too many goals so far - 31 to be precise - because of some mistakes in the defence.

“But, again, the positive aspect is that the forward line did create quite a few chances. And, the players are enjoying the training sessions showing intensity, high quality and concentration which is a very good sign for a team which has not done well as expected,” he said.

Meanwhile, Adil Khan extended his contract with Hyderabad for the next three years.

“I’m happy to make Hyderabad my home for the next three years. I have faith in this club and its management and believe we will have better luck and achieve greater success in the next few seasons,” he said.

Mumbai, on the other hand, stunned defending champion Bengaluru FC in its last game after suffering two successive loses.

“The boys are more confident now. But, we respect the opposition (Hyderabad) which has very good players. Our objective is to win and move into the top four in points table. It is an important game for us, we cannot make mistakes, need to be focused,” said Mumbai head coach Jorge Costa.
