41′ : GOOAAL for Kuwait SC. What a run from Coutinho from half line straight into the box.

38′ : Soumik moves from left to the right wing. The game has had a fast pace to it. Already some Kuwaiti players looks tired. Will the conditions be favourable for KEB in the second half ?

18′ : Mehtab stealing the ball away from the Kuwaiti midfield. Now KEB need to keep possession . Lalrandika with long ball free kick which was pretty deep but has been cut back by Soumik Dey but cleared by the Kuwaiti defense.

15′ : East Bengal midfield need to work a little bit harder to fill up the gaps in the middle. Also the build up play is turning into long balls too soon .

13′ :  Run from deep by Saumik who crosses one in for James Moga who hits it wide. At the other end Uga Opkara with a strong challenge . Corner for Kuwait

10′ : Great movement from Kheder and a goal scoring opportunity for Kuwait but Mondal comes out , Oh what a mistake by Abhijit Mondal as he tries to stop the ball by his hand outside the box. Ref issues a yellow card only !
