Mumbai City FC’s Bartholomew Ogbeche 69th-minute score defeats ATK Mohun Bagan
Mumbai City FC defeated ATK Mohun Bagan 1-0 in a closely-contested Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Monday.
Bartholomew Ogbeche scored a 69th-minute stunner which was enough for Mumbai City to get past ATK Bagan and extend their unbeaten run to nine games.
The win took the Sergio Lobera-coached side to 25 points, five clear of second-placed ATK Bagan, at the halfway stage of the league.
After a barren first half which was dominated by Mumbai City, the deadlock was broken in the 69th minute.
Hugo Boumous played a one-two with Hernan Santana and back heeled to Ogbeche, who ran ahead and his shot curled into the top-right corner of the goal.
