Mumbai City FC shared the spoils with Chennaiyin FC in a 1-1 draw in their 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) encounter at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim.
Bartholomew Ogbeche gave the Islanders the lead in the 21st minute before Esmael Goncalves equalized in the 76th minute for the opponents.
With the draw, Mumbai City FC extended their unbeaten run in ISL to 12 matches. The Islanders have 30 points with 13 matches and occupy the top position in the points table.
Speaking to the media after the match, Mumbai City FC coach Sergio Lobera said:
Ahmed Jahouh tried to dribble past Jakub Sylvestyr in his own penalty box and conceded possession. The Mumbai City FC midfielder fouled him in order to win back the ball and gave away a cheap penalty.
Amrinder Singh had no chance of saving Esmael Goncalves' venomous shot.
Rowllin Borges picked up his fourth yellow card of the season in the dying minutes of regulation time. He will miss Mumbai City FC's next ISL encounter against NorthEast United FC on Saturday.
