However, it was Ashique Kuruniyan’s clever pass from the left wing that led to a penalty situation, allowing Jason Cummings to capitalize and give Mohun Bagan a lead. Mumbai City FC swiftly responded with their own attacking prowess, as Jorge Pereyra Diaz skillfully found the net to level the scoreline at 1-1.

Nonetheless, the momentum swiftly shifted as Hugo Boumous’s precise cross was met by the head of Manvir Singh, restoring Mohun Bagan’s lead. Despite Manvir’s near-miss for a second goal, the Kolkata side managed to maintain their advantage as they headed into halftime.
