This was also Mohun Bagan’s maiden victory over Mumbai City in the ISL.

Mohun Bagan became the Indian Super League (ISL) Champions by defeating Mumbai City FC by 2-1 at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata tonight.

The Mariners thus wrested the title back from the Islanders courtesy of a goal each by Liston Colaco and Jason Cummings in this championship-winning clash in the City of Joy.

A late 89th minute strike by Lallianzuala Chhangte meant that the game went right down the wire, with eight minutes of added time in the second half adding excitement to this dramatic finish of the league stages. However, the home side held their lead dear despite playing with 10 men after the sending off of Brendan Hamill in the 91st minute of the game.  

Mohun Bagan jumped to 48 points from 22 matches as a consequence of this result, thus edging past the now second-placed Mumbai City FC (47) by a solitary point.

Antonio Lopez Habas can thus add another feather to his illustrious cap in the ISL, after taking charge of the club at the mid-season point after they had succumbed to three straight defeats in the league in December.
