Bhaichung ensure Bagan second spot after 10th round!

Mahindra United have won just once against Mohun Bagan at Kolkata in all the I League encounters while Bagan has won the lion's share. Records remained intact as Mohun Bagan captain, Bhaichung Bhutia made sure Bagan came out with 3 points against Mahindra to move up to the top 3 of the I League Table after the 10th round.
The match started with Bagan slightl losing the initiative to Mahindra as they Steven Dias & Co. tried to create some disturbance in the Bagan defence and came close to scoring twice.
But as the game progressed, Bagan defence starring Marcos and Masih took control and put a hault to Mahindra's progress. The half ended with both the teams having equal opportunities but the score board read 0-0.
The second half had barely begun, when Mohun Bagan struck through Bhaichung Bhutia. Dipak Mondal moved into the Mahindra penalty box from the left and let in a low centre to Bhaichung. The ball was spilled by Bhaichung but it came back to him off a Mahindra defender and he made full use of the opportunity. With a half turn, Bhaichung placed the ball across the face of the goal and the keeper stretched in vein as the ball entangled in the net.
Bagan though defended the goal for the remainder, Bagan played some quite exceptional football with numerous passes and laid ope the Mahindra defense on more than one ocassion. Barreto was however, clearly tripped inside the box as he was about to trigger a shot, but the refree, quite to the surprise of the spectators signalled "play on"
The only concern for Karim would be that, against Chirag, he will miss the services of Sangram and Deepak Mandal due to double booking.
After 5 matches, Bagan were on 3 points. Now after 10 matches, they are on 18 points with just Sporting club leading the table with a difference of 4 points.
