Jerry Lalrinzuala takes the ISL Emerging Player of the Match Award while Anirudh Thapa collects the Hero of the Match Award.
Chennaiyin FC have one leg in the finals!
A supreme showing from the home side in the second half has seen them extend their unbeaten run and also have one foot firmly in the finals. After a goalless first half, Chennaiyin FC came out all guns blazing in the second. 9 minutes into the second half and skipper, Lucian Goian headed one home to break the deadlock. 7 minutes later, Anirudh Thapa's worldie doubled the lead. In the 77th minute, Eli Sabia scored one more and after 2 minutes Lallianzuala Chhangte got the fourth. It seemed like the tie was done and dusted with the fourth but Saviour Gama pulled one back 5 minutes before regulation 90 to keep the glimmer of hope alive for the Gaurs. FC Goa though will have to be at their brilliant best in the second leg if they want to make it two finals in a row.

GOALLL!!!
FC Goa have managed to pull one back here. It has come completely against the run of play. Ahmed Jahouh looks to play a chipped pass inside the box, Lucian Goian looks to clear it with a stretched leg but mishits it towards his own box. Saviour Gama is quick to react and gets to the spilt ball and slots it home away from the charging Vishal Kaith. This goal might just keep the hopes alive for the Gaurs.

GOALLL!!!
Chennaiyin FC are head and shoulders in front in this tie and this should kill the tie here itself. Rafael Crivellaro plays a straight long ball to find Anirudh Thapa. He takes a touch and squares it inside the box towards Lallianzuala Chhangte, who takes a touch and finds the back of the net to extend the lead to 4. The fans are ecstatic but even they are in a bit of shock. The Gaurs are looking like a shadow of themselves and it is turning out to be a nightmare for them.

GOALLL!!!
3-0 to Chennaiyin FC and the season is crumbling all of a sudden for the league toppers and 2-time Finalists. Nerijus Valskis dashes forward with the ball on the right, he sees up and finds Eli Sabia making the run inside the box. Nerijus Valskis drills in a low cross and even though Mourtada Fall gets a little bit of touch on it, the ball still finds a way to find Eli Sabia who slots it home with ease.
75'
Chance to kill the tie goes away!
Lallianzuala Chhangte runs on the right and he looks to pull it back inside the box for Nerijus Valskis who has a clear sight of goal but the ball has too much on it and Valskis' stretch is not enough to collect the pass.

FC Goa losing their cool as Ferran Corominas is the latest player to get inside the box. He takes down Edwin Vanspaul and after initially playing the advantage rule, the referee pulls it back for a free kick. The Spanish striker says a mouthful to the referee and gets a yellow card in return.
61'
GOALLL!!!
Chennaiyin FC's joy is doubled and the home fans cannot believe it. It is a stunning strike from Anirudh Thapa to put one foot of the home side into the Final. Jerry Lalrinzuala lays it up on the left to Anirudh Thapa. He runs a couple of steps with it and sees that he has a lot of space to curl it at the far post. The midfielder finds the top right corner of the goal to perfection and his stunning strike doubles the lead for the Marina Machans.

Yellow card
First card of the game and it goes to Jerry Lalrinzuala of Chennaiyin FC.

Second half!
We are back for the second half. The home side will now get us underway. No half time substitutes from either side.
Cautious 1st leg from either side!
It has been a very careful approach from both sides in the first half. The away side had more of the ball but it was Chennaiyin FC who attacked more. The home team though was unable to threaten Mohammad Nawaz in goal. The closest either side came to scoring was when Nerijus Valskis' free kick hit the base of the post. FC Goa have not looked like their usual, attacking self in the first 45 and will be looking to find their scoring boot. Ferran Corominas has cut an isolated figure and would like to get better services in the second 45. Can either side get their noses in front before going back to Goa?

33'
Good cross but a bad touch
Laldinliana Renthlei gets to the byline on the right and puts a very good ball on the other side to find Lallianzuala Chhangte but the Chennaiyin FC player fails to trap the ball and his bad touch lets Seriton Fernandes to slide and send it away from danger.
30'
Super tackle

Chennaiyin FC vs FC Goa - Semi-Final 1
It's time for the knockout stage to begin! The Super Machans will be hosting the high-flying FC Goa in the first leg of Semi-Final 1 and it has the potential to be a corker of a clash. Both teams have been in red-hot form and it's very difficult to choose a favourite. The Gaurs dominated the league stages and topped the table. They were ruthless with their attacking game and the defenders also stood tall on most occasions. Overall, it's a very polished side and parting ways with Sergio Lobera didn't have any effect on their performance. Chennaiyin FC, on their part, experienced a rough start to their campaign but turned things around superbly under Owen Coyle. They have built an 8-match unbeaten streak, winning six of those, and have become one of the teams to beat. Just like the touring team, the Marina Machans also possess an in-form frontline whereas their defensive game is also going strong. We will be in for a treat when these two teams collide as there is so much quality at both ends of the pitch.
