Fatorda: Mumbai City FC won the seventh edition of the Hero Indian Super League with a 2-1 win over ATK Mohun Bagan at the Fatorda Stadium here on Saturday evening. By virtue of this win, Mumbai pocketed an enviable achievement of capping the season title with the League Shield.
Sergio Lobera’s men made it two trophies in two weeks becoming just the second outfit to top the group phase and win the title. Bipin Singh scored a 90th-minute winner after a Tiri own goal (29’) had dragged Mumbai level. ATK had earlier taken the lead through David Williams (18’).
Mumbai continued with their usual possession-based football but for Bagan who were out of the blocks early, it was all about surging ahead. While the islanders had over 60% possession in the first quarter, the Mariners had more shots on target.
There was an early penalty call when Bipin Singh was challenged in the box by Pritam Kotal, but the referee showed no interest.
