Mohun Bagan in first half measured their opponent and refrained from repeating the mistake of the first leg and slowly with time settled into the match. Bagan came close to scoring the first half a couple of times but failed to capitalise. However, in the second half Bagan looked determined to get the three points from the match and extend their I League winning tally to a staggering continuous 7 matches.
In the 73rd minute, James sent in an in-swinging centre and a flying Bhaichung side volleyed the ball into the goal.
Then in the 81st minute, Marcos put the ball long for Barreto, who ran almost half the length of the field before placing in at the second post and the Mumbai FC keeper left stranded. 2-0 for Bagan.
Bagan kept up the pressure and then in the 89th minute, Lalampuia was set up again by Marcos with a defense splitting pass and the young gun made quick run and beautifully placed the ball past the keeper. What is heartening to see this season is that Lalampuia has realised scoring goals is not always about power but placement.
Bagan continue their I League winning spree and win their 7th match in a row. Next Bagan play Air India in Mumbai.
