Mumbai Customs continued their winning streak with a hard-fought win over Central Railway courtesy of a goal from John Coutinho’s free-kick. Despite the loss, Central Railway produced a solid defensive display that Customs found hard to break in and their best chances came in set pieces.

Early in the game, Customs had a free-kick opportunity which Praneel took over. His shot deflected off a Central Railway defender which referee deemed off as handball and pointed to the spot-kick. Sajjad Alam stepped up for the Penalty but his strike failed to beat the CR Goalkeeper as the score remained 0-0. However, in another Free-kick chance, John Coutinho stepped up to send a brilliant left-footed shot to beat the keeper and break the deadlock. Customs continued with their attack for the rest of the game but failed to beat CR’s defense again as the game ended 1-0.
