21:27 (IST)27 Nov 2020
FT: East Bengal 0-2 Mohun Bagan

After four minutes of added time, ATKMB hold on to their 2-0 lead to beat East Bengal and seize the bragging rights. Roy Krishna gave the lead in the 49th minute with a left-footed strike. East Bengal tried to come back into the game with efforts from Balwant Singh and Anthony Pilkington, but Manvir Singh killed the game off with a superb solo effort in the 85th minute for ATKMB.

21:22 (IST)27 Nov 2020
89' Substitutions galore

Habas uses his final two changes to give his players a breather. Brad Inman and Sumit Rathi replace Krishna and Prabir.

21:17 (IST)27 Nov 2020
85' MANVVVVIIRRRRR!

After Glan Martins came on to make his debut, Manvir comes up with a moment of brilliance! He chases down a lost cause, and breezes past Narayan Das. He enters the box from the right, checks back onto his left foot, and fires it straight into the top corner.

21:14 (IST)27 Nov 2020
83' Pilkington comes very, very close

Dodgy moments for ATKMB! After receiving a backpass, Arindam strikes the ball straight at Pilkington, but gets lucky as the winger isn't able to get his shot away cleanly. Minutes later, Pilkington forces a world class save from the Bengali goalkeeper.

21:12 (IST)27 Nov 2020
80' Fowler makes his third change

Fowler has made a substitution as Loken Moeitei is replaced by Wahengbam Angousana. Now or never for East Bengal.

21:02 (IST)27 Nov 2020
70' Pritam booked, East Bengal still wasteful

Pritam Kotal goes in the book now, as he unceremoniously brings Rafique down after getting turned by the East Bengal man. From the resulting free-kick, Maghoma takes the ball and passes it to Loken just outside of the box... and he shoots way wide.

20:55 (IST)27 Nov 2020
63' ATKMB make a double change

Pronay Halder and Manvir Singh come on in places of Jayesh Rane and David Williams. East Bengal too make another change -- Mohammed Rafique replaces the misfiring Balwant. How will the final half-an-hour go from here? 

20:52 (IST)27 Nov 2020
60' East Bengal comes close to equaliser

MISS! And it's that man Balwant who fluffs his lines again! Pilkington sets off the move with a sensational back-heel towards Loken... he plays Balwant through on the left flank, but the striker shanks his left-footed shot, and Arindam has no problem.

20:49 (IST)27 Nov 2020
58' Fowler makes a change

East Bengal make a change to keep themselves in the match. Fowler brings on Abhishek Ambekar in place of Gharami and they have now gone to a flat back four. Ambekar has gone to right-back, with Surchandra more advanced on the flank.

20:45 (IST)27 Nov 2020
53' Maghoma goes into the book

Maghoma is shown the yellow card as he brings Javi down the halfway line. Minutes later, Jhingan finds himself lucky to not be booked by the referee. The centre-back fouled Loken and then followed the play to clatter into Surchandra. 

20:41 (IST)27 Nov 2020
49' KRISSSHNNNNAAAAA!

GOAL! Krishna talked about his excitement ahead of the derby and he translates that into a brilliant goal! He receives the ball from Javi Hernandez outside of the box and his left-footed shot makes its way into the back of the net beneath Debjit's left-hand.

20:37 (IST)27 Nov 2020
Second half kunderway

ATK Mohun Bagan restart the proceedings. Will the match end goalless or can someone pop up and become a derby hero?

20:22 (IST)27 Nov 2020
HT: East Bengal 0-0 ATK Mohun Bagan

After two minutes of added time, the referee brings the exciting half to an end! East Bengal will be ruing Balwant's miss a lot but they go into the break on a high as they were dominating the passage of play towards the end. All to play for in the second half.

20:14 (IST)27 Nov 2020
39' MISS!

OH NO! Minutes after surviving a scare, East Bengal had the opportunity to go ahead but Balwant completely scuffs a chance. Surchandra crosses it in from right and finds Balwant, but the striker's right-footed attempt goes horribly wrong. Goal kick.

20:11 (IST)27 Nov 2020
36' SAVE!

SO CLOSE! Subhasish's throw-in finds Javi in the box and the midfielder's first touch takes him past one defender and then lashes a left-footed half volley. Debjit was aware of the situation and gets a strong hand to it. Nothing comes off of the corner.

20:04 (IST)27 Nov 2020
30' Maghoma's attempt doesn't trouble Arindam

Narayan finds himself in space on the left and he crosses it in but Maghoma's header goes wide. On the other hand, Pilkington is yet to make his mark. For a player who has scored against United, Chelsea and City... it has been a rather dull evening.

20:02 (IST)27 Nov 2020
27' ATKMB pile on pressure

Javi has another corner cleared by the first man. The ball falls to Pritam, who gets himself into a shooting position. He got into an awkward position with a left-footed shot and it dribbles wide. His team continue to press in the opposition half though.

19:56 (IST)27 Nov 2020
22' Balwant goes into the book

Balwant is shown the first yellow card of the evening for a foul after a Steinmann pass was intercepted by McHugh. East Bengal are trying to maintain their high tempo approach after being motivated by Pilkington's shot a few minutes earlier. 

19:49 (IST)27 Nov 2020
14' End-to-end stuff so far

After Tiri stops Steinmann's pass reaching Balwant behind him, ATKMB start their own attack via Subhashish on the left hand side. He pings one high above everyone's heads... Krishna chases it but Debjit comes out of the box and clears it. Pulsating affair.

19:43 (IST)27 Nov 2020
8' EB have a penalty shout

CHANCE! Pilkington finds himself at the end of Maghoma's pass, and then he jinks Pritam inside the box. While trying to control the ball with his weaker foot, he falls over after some pressure by Tiri. Nothing doing. ATKMB maintain the possession afterwards.
