Mumbai City FC has been one of the most successful clubs in the Indian super league this season with over 9 wins. They are currently at the top of the table and faced the mighty Bangla brigade on Friday. Most games are easy to win for manager Sergio Lobera who switched colors from Goa to Mumbai earlier this season. East Bengal were underdogs going into the game. After a poor start, they wanted to try and win any remaining games to be in the top 5.

Mumbai City FC
Amrinder Singh, Mehtab Singh, Mourtada Fall, Amey Ranawade, Ahmed Jahouh, Cy Goddard, Rowllin Borges, Vignesh Dakshinamurthy, Bipin Singh, Hugo Boumous, Adam Le Fondre.
The first half was dominated by the Mighty Brigadear’s. Fortunately, Mumbai City FC was able to score a goal in the 27th minute. The goal was scored by Mourtada Fall, Mumbai’s Centre Back. The mighty brigaders did not give up then and created chance after chance but couldn’t get past Amrinder. East Bengal had dominated the match but they were not able to convert the passes into goals which kept the score at 1-0.
In the second half, the Mighty Brigadear’s started well but couldn’t convert any of their shorts which weren’t on target. At the 63rd minute, there was a close call but they couldn’t convert it as the ball flew across the post. There was a chance created later by Mumbai City FC but Bipin Singh couldn’t get the ball through to Adam in the end.
Mumbai City FC won the match 1-0 but they won’t be happy with the match that they played. There were many mistakes and Bipin Singh’s passing was poor. They will surely work even on the slightest errors that they have made. East Bengal will be happy with the match that they have played but will have to work on how to convert those missed chances to goals. These changes and conversion could help them win upcoming matches and rise to the top of the table.
