TALKING POINTS

-Both teams had chances in the first half to score, but Mumbai took their chances and scored two goals by the end of the first interval.

-Very scrappy play by both the teams in the second half with both teams giving away possession with every third pass.

-Mumbai City could’ve had a couple of more goals towards the end of the second half. Lucian Goian missed a penalty and Paulo Machado’s shot on goal came off the post.

-The stadium had 4000 odd supporters for today’s game. Mumbai Football Arena is a compact stadium with a capacity of around 8,000 and doesn’t have an athletic track unlike other stadiums in India which mars the atmosphere. Considering it was a derby, the event organisers could’ve done more to drum up support for the game.
