Bambolim: The nightmarish beginning in the Indian Super League (ISL) continued for East Bengal as they went down 3-0 in a meek surrender against a formidable Mumbai City FC in their second match at the GMC Stadium here on Tuesday.
In the first match, the red-and-golds were drubbed 2-0 by arch-rivals Mohun Bagan on last Friday.
On Tuesday, Hugo Boumous assisted all three goals as a brace from Adam Le Fondre (20′, 48′) and a strike from Hernan Santana (58′) saw Mumbai register their second straight win with SCEB yet to open their account.
Mumbai made four changes from their 1-0 win against FC Goa, with Ahmed Jahouh returning to the eleven. Meanwhile, SCEB made two changes to the side that lost the Kolkata derby.
SCEB suffered a huge blow early on as defender Daniel Fox was replaced by Mohammad Rafique.
