FC Goa win big
FC Goa beat Mumbai City FC 5-2 in high-scoring match to go three points clear at the top of the Indian Super League table here on Wednesday. Mumbai City did put up a fight but Goa were clinical enough to notch up an emphatic win.
Rowllin Borges (18th) gave Mumbai the lead before Ferran Corominas (20th), Hugo Boumous (38th) and Jackichand Singh (39th) handed the initiative to FC Goa. Though Bipin Singh (57th) pulled one back for Mumbai, Corominas (80th) struck again before Mohammed Rafique scored an own goal in the 87th minute to seal the win for FC Goa.
The victory saw FC Goa remain on course to clinch the top spot in the league while Mumbai stay four points ahead of fifth-placed Chennaiyin FC who have played two games less. FC Goa made a sloppy start to the game, giving the ball away cheaply in their defensive half far too many times.
Mumbai took the lead in the 18th minute. A long ball into the box was not cleared by FC Goa defenders. Subhasish Bose got to the ball and set up Borges inside the box whose drive took a deflection before settling in the back of the net.
