Air India hold Bagan!

The Air India-Mohun Bagan tie in Mumbai at the Cooperage ended in a goal less draw as Mohun Bagan earned only one point from this away game. Air India is always a tough opponent away from the home but Bagan controlled the game mainly with a few moments for Air India. The match started off with Bagan attacking and Bhaichung Bhutia along with Barreto created some tremors in the opposition's box. But Air India counter acted with some decent counter attacks testing the Bagan custodian Sangram. The half eneded goal less and Bagan came out in the second half to pile on the pressure and introduced Lalampuia with Barreto working from behind but failed to put the ball in the net as the crossbar once denied Barreto of a header. andalso the crowded defense had the numerical superiority. The Bagan defense on the same strain was not breached and Odafe again stood tall gaurding the Bagan fort! Bagan are on 21 points from 13 outings. Next they play their Home match against Churchill Bros.
