Mumbai City defeated East Bengal at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata.The islanders dominated from the first minute on. On the other hand, East Bengal lacked a fighting spirit or intention. Mumbai maintained comfortable control and nearly scored as early as the third minute. Greg Stewart receives a pass from Lallianzuala Chhangte on the right side and shoots, but the ball goes straight to the keeper. Ankit Mukherjee reacts quickly to divert the ball away from the goal line after Kamaljit fails to clear it. But in the 26th minute, the visitors take the lead. Lalengmawia Ralte receives a pass from Greg Stewart off the outside of his boot and makes a strong run through the line. Without much effort, Lalengmawia Ralte puts it effortlessly past the goalie.Despite appearing lifeless for the majority of the first half, East Bengal kept the scoreline to have some hope for the second half.

Eliandro was one of Stephen Constantine's three substitutions during the second half. The substitutions, though, didn't help them either. The second goal for Mumbai came in the 50th minute. The East Bengal defence misses Stewart on the field. Jahou makes a great pass, and Stewart easily gets it past Kamaljit. Apuia scored the third in the 59th minute. East Bengal appeared to be in shattered in their defence . On the right side, Lallianzuala Chhangte passes it to Bipin Singh, who makes a run. Lalengmawia Ralte, who was unoccupied on the left wing, received it from Jorge Diaz after he selflessly passed it to him and he thumps it past the goalkeeper.

Mumbai City were awarded a penalty for a foul on Vikram singh from Jerry. However the young Gurkirat Singh shoots it over the bar. With the fifth consecutive win Mumbai City have moved up to the top of the table and East Bengal remains at the 8th position.
