Ten men Chennai City hands Mohun Bagan a shocking defeat in front of home crowd


Kolkata: It was a dramatic match at the Mohun Bagan ground and the trouble continues for the Mariners as they faced Chennai City FC in their first ever home match in the floodlights. Mariners started strong as Ansumana Kromah flicked a ball cleverly to Dipanda Dicka but Uros collected. Sourav Das did the damage for his team as Murilo snatched a ball from his feet and Joachim shot went to the goal. Shilton Paul has no other option to watch the ball going in the goal. Sourav was still very sloppy as he was replaced by Surchandra Singh.

After Surchandra’s introduction to the team Mohun Bagan looked very dangerous as Kromah’s shot hit the crossbar in 27th minute. Surchandra delivered another delightful ball to Abhishek but, Pradeep kept it wide. Pradeep was sent off in the 35th minute as he handled the ball to keep the ball away from the goal. Bagan was given a penalty and Kromah didn’t miss the opportunity to write his name on the score sheet on 36th minute.

In the second half Shumeiko rises above three defenders to intercept a Soosai Raj corner kick to head it past Shilton Paul to score a goal to get ahead in the 71st minute. It was a bad day for Kolkata giants as they lose over ten men Chennai City FC 1-2. Murilo declared Hero of the match for his brilliant performance.
