Both the sides got a number of chances in the first half but failed to score the opener. But coming into the second half, the home side showed maximum intent to go ahead and came close to score a couple of times.

Mumbai, on the other hand, were not able to shoot the ball on target.

The breakthrough came in the 81st minute when C.K.Vineeth pulled it back for Lalhlimpuia who slotted the ball to the back of the net just six minutes after coming on for Kim Song-Yong.
