Indian Super League - Football Match 52

D.Y. Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai

Mumbai City FC vs Atlético de Kolkata
2 - 1

Mumbai City FC picked up a long-awaited win after they trumped Atlético de Kolkata 2-1 in a riveting encounter at the DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai. Lalrindika Ralte opened the scoring in the first half with substitute Baljit Sahni equalising for Kolkata. Former German international Manuel Friedrich scored the winner for the home side to keep their hopes of a semifinal berth alive.

It was a frantic first half with both teams threatening in equal measure. The home side kept possession of the ball for longer spells and directed their attacks through returning forward Nicolas Anelka. Kolkata keeper Apoula Edel Bete was forced into making some good saves, but opposite number Subrata Paul was also kept busy throughout the half. The first real chance of the match came in the 3rd minute as Mohammed Rafi cut the ball back for Borja Fernández, who fired a shot from the edge of the area that went just wide.
