90' + 5'GOAL FOR JAMSHEDPUR! Anoher debut goal, this time for Morgado. He finds the back of the net with a fine finish.

90' + 5'   Raju Gaikwad in on the floor and the physios come to to treat him. It takes too long for the referee's liking and the Jamshedpur FC physio (!) gets a yellow card.

90' + 2' Jamshedpur keeps hold of the ball, passing it around in the midfield. The game is ending like it started, with Mumbai chasing the ball around trying to win possession.

90' Five minutes of added time. Can Mumbai find an equaliser?

89' Calvo tries to curl one in but Amrinder Singh dives well to push the ball away. Good build-up play matched by the save.

84' The freekick rebounds off the post and Sougou puts the ball in the back of the net but, again, a goal is ruled out for ofside. Replays show that it was a correct call from the linesman.

83' Calco gives away a freekick in a good position for Mumbai, who bring on Mirabaje on for Klisura.

80' The Mumbai players appeal for a penalty after Sougou goes down in the box but the referee waves play on.

78' Final change of the game for Jamshedpur. The lively Jerry makes way for Morgado.

76' Mumbai has the ball in the back of the Jamshedpur goal but its ruled out for offside! Rafique thought he got the equaliser but the linesman had his flag up very quickly.

75' Double substitution for Jamshedpur FC. Karan Amin and Mobashir Rahman replace Yumnam Raju and Mario Arques.

73' Tiri gets in another block, this time on Sougou. Right time, right place for the Spaniard throughout this game.

71' Another big chance for Mumbai. A ball over Jamshedpur's defence is found by Sougou but Subhasish Roy is quickly off his line again, which forces Sougou to go wide. he sets up Pranjal but Tiri gets his body in the way and denies Mumbai the equaliser.

68' Mumbai is doing well to win the second balls this half, doing its best to keep control of the game. A huge improvement from the first half.

65' Double substitution for Mumbai City FC. Raynier Fernandes and Pranjal Bhumij come on for Bipin Singh and Sanju Pradhan.

63' A brilliant run by Jerry at the halfway line gets Jamshedpur on another attack but Carlos Calvo and Sumeet Passi can not put the finishing touch.

61' A good counter-attack from Jamshedpur. It was four-on-three but Jerry's delayed pass sees a good opportunity go waste.

59' Raju Gaikwad is caught ball watching and Sougou gets a header on target, which is tipped over the ball by an acrobatic Subhasish Roy.

59' Jerry with an opportunistic overhead kick but it sails comfortably wide of Amrinder Singh's goal.

49' Yellow card to Arques for a late challenge on Rafael Bastos.

47' The second half starts the same way the first half had been, Jamshedpur on the attack and Mumbai defending. Tiri's header from a corner is cleared off the line by Goian. Very close to a second goal for Jamshedpur.

46' Mumbai gets the second half underway.

HALF TIME This has been a good half for Jamshedpur and a disappointing one for Mumbai. Apart from controlling the game for the most part, it also managed to take the lead. Mumbai has looked to get the equaliser but a lack of cohesive play and Jamshedpur's defence have stood in its way.

45' Jerry gets behind the Mumbai defence and was almost one-on-one with the goalkeeper before Lucian Goian slid in and took the ball away. Could have been a second goal, if not for the challenge from the Romanian.

39' Sougou is through on goal but Tiri does very well to get back and nick the ball off his feet. He goes down dramatically and wants a penalty, but its a good call from the referee.

36' Sanju puts in a through ball to Goian but his shot is off target.

28' GOAL! Jamshedpur gets the opening goal of the game! A cross comes in and Mario Arques finds himself free in the box. He heads across the goal, into the far post and Arminder Singh could do nothing about that. Jerry and Mario Arques combined well for the goal, before the Spanish midfielder gets into the box to score on his ISL debut.

25' Tim Cahill in the stands. He's not playing today as he is serving the final match of a three-match ban for violent conduct during the game between Millwall and Fulham in the English Championship.

23' Mumbai lost five matches at home season, winning just four. That's not a record to be proud of.

22' Mumbai wins a corner and Goian heads it just over the ball. That's the second good cance of the game for Mumbai in the space of four minutes.

20' Tiri fouls Sougou in the middle of the pitch and the referee is quick to show him a yellow card. The Jamshedpur captain isn't happy with the card, obviously, but he was tugging on Sougou's shirt and that's the right call from the referee.

18' First real chance of the game falls to Mumbai. Bipin Singh almost gets to a long ball but it's well defended by the Jamshedpur defence and Subhasish Roy gathers with ease.

11' Arques and Memo have controlled the midfield in the opening minutes for Jamshedpur.

9' A cross field ball finds Jerry on the right and he hooks the ball into the box and Mumbai clear it for a corner. Jamshedpur try a training ground corner routine but Mumbai hold shape and defend.

8' Memo is fouled, again. That's three fouls on him in seven and a half minutes now, and he's understandably expresses his frustration to the referee.

5' Jerry gets in behind the defence on the right and puts in a good cross. Mumbai clear it and Jamshedpur gets hold of the possession again. Mumbai yet to settle down in the game.

3' Two fouls on Jamshedpur in the space of ten seconds. Memo gets fouled, again. He's a marked man in the opening minutes.

1' Thirty seconds into the game and Jamshedpur wins a freekick for a foul on Memo.

1' The home away team gets up underway at the Mumbai Football Arena. Mumbai City FC is playing in blue and Jamshedpur FC in red.
