90′ SUB SUV: Setareki HUGHES is replaced by Poasa BAINIVALU for Suva

86′ SUBS LOS: Lossi make a double change, Wilson FOREST and Shafy MANDAOUE being replaced by Paul OZIKA and Nathanael HMAEN
85′ SUB SUV: Kaliova TIVULU is replaced by Shahil DAVE for Suva
84′ MATEINAQARA has to race well off his line to deal with a dangerous situation as Lossi continue to dominate
83′ OUKA breaks down the left and tries to score from an acute angle but it is always going to be difficult from there and he can’t beat MATEINAQARA
79′ Mone WAMOWE nearly gets one-on-one with MATEINAQARA but the Suva goalkeeper comes out to smother at his feet
78′ CEXOME becomes the latest Lossi play to try his luck at goal but MATEINAQARA is again equal to his effort
77′ The skipper rejoins the action and there is no sign yet from the Lossi bench that he or OUKA will be replaced
76′ Play restarts as KAUMA hobbles off, leaving Lossi down to ten men for the time being
75′ Lossi have another injury problem as captain Dick KAUMA goes down and looks to be in plenty of pain
74′ OUKA comes back onto the pitch but isn’t moving freely and it would be no surprise if he has to go off shortly
73′ Lossi goalscorer OUKA appears to have a hamstring problem and has to leave the field to receive treatment
72′ Nickel CHAND tries to pick out a Suva team mate with a low cross but keeper WEJIEME leaves his line to gather
68′ SUB SUV: Rusiate MATAREREGA is replaced by Tomasi TUICAKAU for Suva
68′ Suva 3 – 1 Lossi: Lossi finally have some reward for their recent dominance when MANDAOUE pulls the ball back to the penalty spot and OUKA fires it home
65′ Lossi could be right in this contest with some more accurate finishing, this time it’s CEXOME who scuffs an effort wide, although it was a difficult chance as he was well outside the area
63′ OUKA hits a shot from the edge of the area very sweetly and it looks like it might sneak inside the far post but MATEINAQARA dives to meet it and does well to hold on
60′ SUB LOS: Lossi are the first to make a change, Kevin MAITRAN coming off for Leon TAIN
58′ It’s another free kick for Lossi in a promising position but OUKA opts for a curling effort and it lacks the power to beat MATEINAQARA
57′ Lossi have a free kick in a good position but Joerisse CEXOM’s effort hits the wall
53′ Lossi have responded well to the third goal and have another chance when MANDAOUE lifts his effort just over the bar from the edge of the area after a cut back reaches him
52′ The lively Jim OUKA finds space down the right for Lossi and cuts onto his left foot but goalkeeper Beniamino MATEINAQARA keeps his effort out
47′ GOAL!!! Suva 3 – 0 Lossi: Suva make Lossi pay for missing that chance by breaking down to the other end and extending their lead through Rusiate MATAREREGA, who rounds goalkeeper Emmanuel WEJIEME and rolls the ball home
46′ Lossi have a great chance straight away but Shafy MANDAOUE blasts his effort high and wide when clean through on goal
46′ We’re off and running here for the second half with Lossi trying to find their way back into the game
HALF TIME: Suva 2 – 0 Lossi
45′ One minute of additional time will be played
45′ Lossi have a great opportunity to get on the scoresheet just before the break but OUKA scuffs his shot from close range and the ball breaks to Marvin DRAWILO, who blasts over the bar
40′ This is turning into a good period of the match for Lossi as OUKA turns sharply in the box and fires a shot goalwards which MATEINAQARA get behind well to keep out
38′ Lossi are trying hard to get back into the game and WAMOWE tries his luck from a long way out but it is always a bit ambitious and bounces wide
35′ HUGHES is in the action for Suva again, this time to head a Nickel CHAND corner towards goal but he is some distance out and it goes wide
31′ OUKA has another strike at the Suva goal but this one goes high and wide
29′ OUKA is released by a great pass down the left from Marvin DRAWILO and he bears down on goal but MATEINAQARA gets down well at his near post to keep the effort out
26′ Lossi have a free kick in a great position but OUKA doesn’t connect well and fails to trouble keeper MATEINAQARA unduly
24′ Mone WAMOWE has a half chance after good play by Lossi down the right but his effort takes a deflection and doesn’t find the goal
20′ Lossi try to respond immediately but the shot from Kevin MAITRAN on the edge of the area goes wide
19′ GOAL!!! Suva 2 – 0 Lossi: Suva spring the offside trap down the left and the dangerous HUGHES goes on to smash the ball into the far netting from an acute angle
16′ Lossi have a free kick some distance from goal which Joerisse CEXOME strikes sweetly but the ball fizzes over the cross bar
12′ Rusiate MATAREREGA shows good pace and power to force his way past three Lossi defenders and shoot but keeper WEJIEME bats away the effort at his near post
9′ GOAL!!! Suva 1 – 0 Lossi: Suva score their first goal of the tournament to take the lead, Setareki HUGHES drilling a low ball across the face of the goal which the unfortunate Jean Jacques WAHNYAMALLA turns into his own net
7′ Jim OUKA gets on the end of a cross for Lossi but it’s a dificult header to get on target and he fails to test goalkeeper Beniamino MATEINAQARA, who leaves his goal to gather the bouncing ball comfortably
4′ Suva have the first chance of the match when a deep low cross reaches Filipe BARAVILALA but his effort lacks the power to beat Lossi goalkeeper Emmanuel WEJIEME
4′ Suva have enjoyed the better of the possession in these early stages
2′ There’s not a lot riding on this one in terms of the tournament outlook but both sides will be keen to finish with a win and avoid finishing pointless
1′ It’s a great day for football with little wind, no rain and the pitch in good condition
1′ We’re underway here at QBE Stadium on Match Day 8 of the OFC Champions League
