Full Time: Pune City FC 0-1 Mumbai City FC
Not a pretty game this. Lots of fouls and little flow. Mumbai not at their best. But they were slid and nicked a goal. On the night that was enough. Good start for the team from the metropolis. Tomorrow we are back in the Northeast as NEUFC host last season's finalist FC Goa.
