ISL 2020-21: Bartholomew Ogbeche's second-half stunner the difference as Mumbai City FC edge ATK Mohun Bagan
Bartholomew Ogbeche scored a 69th-minute stunner which was enough for the Islanders to get past their rivals and extended their unbeaten run to nine games. His goal was the first time that ATKMB conceded from open play this season.
Goals from Mourtada Fall (9'), Bipin Singh (15') and Bartholomew Ogbeche (84') helped the Islanders remain unbeaten in their last eight games and climb to the top of the table.
Owen Coyle's men took the lead through Nerijus Valskis (9') before Mumbai hit back through Bartholomew Ogbeche (15').
With momentum on their side, the Mumbai team will look to put it across a skeptical Chennaiyin.
A penalty from Bartholomew Ogbeche and a header from Rowllin Borges gave Sergio Lobera's men their third win in four games and sent them to the top of the table.
Mumbai's defence have not conceded any goals in the last two matches and they have Mandar Rao Dessai, Sarthak Golui, Mohamad Rakip and Mourtada Fall to choose from at the back.
Robbie Fowler named a defensive formation against the well-set ATK Mohun Bagan with Balwant as the sole striker, putting the experienced Jeje Lalpekhlua on the bench, something that did not work out.
