Lucian Goian takes Chennaiyin FC to play-offs in ISL
There was heartbreak for Mumbai City FC, when Lucian Goian scored the winner against his former club to help Chennaiyin FC qualify for the Indian Super League play-offs, in Mumbai on Friday.
Clear-cut chances were few and far between in what was an intense contest that saw Mumbai City reduced to 10-men in the second half. But Goian’s 83rd-minute strike was enough for Chennaiyin to win the contest 1-0 and complete the ISL play-off line-up. Mumbai City end the league stage in the fifth spot with 26 points. Chennaiyin, who have one more game left, have 28 points and occupy the fourth spot currently.
Meanwhile, in Bangalore, on Saturday, ATK take on Bengaluru FC in the return leg match. ATK beat Bengaluru FC 1-0 at home.
