It was Kerela’s home ground in Kochin and the odds were supposed to be on their side. They had won by 2-1 against their arch-rivals ATK and things seemed to be going in their favour but it is the game of football anything can happen any minute.
The overall ball possession was 52% with Kerela and 48% with Mumbai City. Even the percentage of successful passes for Kerela is 66 while for Mumbai it is 55.
What could have been goal for Kerela basters was saved by Amrinder Singh. It was his brilliant goal keeping that probably saved the day for Mumbai City FC.
No goal was scored in the first half of the game as both teams maintained a clean sheet till then. The second half also seemed as if there will be no goal scored but the 82nd minute of the game changed the entire story. Mumbai City’s Amine Chermiti managed to get the ball past the two defenders ahead of him and score the first goal of the game.
Mumbai Citty FC won the match with 1-0 and have gained 3 points and stand at the 3rd position in the points table with FC Goa leading the table. While Kerela stands at number 4 with a game lost and a game won.
