20:59 (IST): The final whistle has been blown. Kolkata have come from behind to win the game 2-1. Lobo is the star of the show with two goals.

20:50 (IST): Five minutes of stoppage time and Goa need to score to save a point in the game.

20:43 (IST): GOAL! Lobo scores a brace and Kolkata lead 2-1 in the 84th minute. Borja puts in a long pass and is headed out by Gregory. The ball bounces outside the box. Cavin comes charging and absolutely muscles it, first time, past the keeper into the left top corner.

20:41 (IST): Ranti Martins makes way for Tolgay Ozbey. Looks like Goa does not want to settle for a draw.

20:32 (IST): GOAL! Lobo fires it in and Kolkata are level in the 72nd minute. Fikru puts in a good pass over the defense line towards Cavin who makes a smart run. He takes a touch from his thigh and hits it wide of the keeper to find the back of the net.

20:28 (IST): A free kick is taken short by Santos towards Peter who slams it low towards the goal. The ball is blocked and it rolls towards Peter again. The midfielder takes a better shot again and forced the goalie to dive to his right, Edel does so but fails to collect the ball cleanly as it hits the post and comes straight back to him. That was close as Gregory was standing there like a vulture.

20:20 (IST): Andre Santos runs along with the ball from half line. Cuts in to get past the defender and disects the defence beautifully to find Martins. The forward was a touch early on that and is flagged off side.

20:18 (IST): Cavin runs with the ball on the left flank and puts in a good searching cross towards Fikru, The man of the moment chests the ball down and blazes this over the cross bar with his left foot.

20:12 (IST): Gabriel burts into the box as he cuts inside to get away from the defender, He tries to get away from another one but is tackled legitimately. He goes down in search of a penalty but the referee dismisses it immediately.

20:05 (IST): The second half starts and Kolkata looking for a quick goal to level the scores.

19:48 (IST): So that's the end of the first half and Goa lead 1-0 vs Kolkata. All set for an exciting second half.

19:39 (IST): Cavin takes a shot from distance towards the goal. Jan Seda was slow to get to the ball and has to eventually dive to his right to put that one away for a corner. That was sloppy work from the goalie.

19:31 (IST): Pires breaks into the 18-yard box as he gets a good through ball on the right side. He takes a shot, which lacks pace, to find the side net.

19:22 (IST): GOAL! Santos finds the back of the net in the 21st minute and Kolkata are behind for the first time in the tournament. Franco goes down and Ranti Martins makes good use of his as he plays a good ball to Santos inside the box. The Brazilian takes a couple of touches and absolutely powers that inside the goal.

19:17 (IST): Borja recieves a yellow card for a rash challenge on Santos. The ref has nothing doing with it and gives a warning to the captain. Borja has received a red card in one of the games before. After all this, Gregory, in his half, comes from behind and gives a shoulder push to Fikru. Both players seem to be heated up at the moment.

19:13 (IST): Cavin tries to find his teammate on the right flank but puts in a little too much on it. The first Indian to be drafted into the Indian Super League is potraying his skills there. He was involved in action once again as he takes a shot from outside the box but sends it wide of the post.

19:11 (IST): Some attacking football from both sides but it is clearly Kolkata that have the upper hand.

19:07 (IST): Pires has been on the receiving end from the start of the league. He rolls the ball on the right flank, gets away from the defender but finds himself on the ground due to the outstretched leg of Jofre, The free kick by Santos is a good curling one inside the 6-yard box but the defender gets the first touch to clear it.

19:05 (IST): Atletico de Kolkata's front line are putting good pressure straightaway on the home side's defence to prevent that first pass. Good start from the table toppers.

19:00 (IST): So the match gets underway as both teams look for an early lead.

18:58 (IST): The national anthem is over and now the players make their way to the field. The firecrackers go up as the players are ready to start the game.

18:52 (IST): Co-owner Virat Kohli has made it to the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Goa. The passion of the cricketer clearly visible here.

18:46 (IST): It is time for Goa to take on Atletico de Kolkata in game no.10 of the Indian Super League. The visitors can cement their place at the top of the table by stealing these 3 points today. Goa is still hunting for their first win. Injury will be a slight concern for Atletico de Kolkata as their Marquee player, Luis Garcia, is down with a hamstring injury.

NorthEast United FC celebrate a goal vs FC Goa in the Indian Super League


NorthEast United FC capitalised on a debatable penalty decision as they held FC Goa to a 1-1 draw in a high intensity Hero Indian Super League match here on Sunday.

Playing their third match at home on the trot in the space of seven days, NorthEast United conceded a goal in the 17th minute after their goalkeeper TP Rehenesh made a blunder but they got the equaliser in the 36th minute through a penalty kick conversion at the Indira Gandhi Stadium.

The home side, who had won a game and lost one before the match, were the better side for most part of the contest but their forwards failed to convert the chances that came their way.

The result meant that Brazillian legend Zico will have to wait for his side's first win in the tournament as they had lost their opening match 1-2 to Chennaiyin FC at home on October 15. (Read: NorthEast United FC Hold FC Goa to a 1-1 Draw)
