ISL 2021-22: Mumbai City FC regain top spot after a goalless draw with SC East Bengal

Igor
Angulo
was
the
first
to
test
the
goalkeeper
as
his
header
was
comfortably
saved
by
Arindam
Bhattacharja.
Daniel
Chima
Chukwu
was
next
to
threaten
the
goal
on
the
other
end
but
his
attempt
from
close-range
went
narrowly
past
the
right
side
of
the
goal.
SCEB
were
dealt
an
early
blow
due
to
injury
to
Joyner
Lourenco
who
needed
to
be
replaced
by
Ankit
Mukherjee.

Both
teams
struggled
to
create
major
scoring
chances
in
the
first
half.
The
Islanders
dominated
the
possession
but
found
it
tough
to
find
spaces
behind
SCEB’s
backline.
Due
to
the
resilient
defending
from
the
Red
&
Golds,
both
teams
went
into
the
halftime
break
on
level
terms.

Mohammad
Rafique
was
sent
in
the
second
half
as
a
replacement
to
Bikash
Jairu.
A
few
minutes
post
the
restart,
strong
calls
for
a
penalty
from
MCFC
players
were
denied
by
the
referee
as
Adil
Khaan
allegedly
fouled
Cassio
Gabriel
inside
the
box.
The
Brazilian
then
blasted
a
long-range
drive
which
was
expertly
parried
away
by
Bhattacharja.
The
frustration
could
be
seen
amongst
the
MCFC
ranks
as
Ahmed
Jahouh
came
close
with
a
long-range
strike
at
the
hour
mark.

Vinit
Rai
made
his
MCFC
debut
as
Des
Buckingham
sent
him
alongside
Ygor
Catatau
to
inject
more
energy
on
the
pitch.
Amarjit
Singh
Kiyam
also
picked
up
an
injury
and
was
replaced
by
Darren
Sidoel
with
15
minutes
left
to
play.
Jahouh
was
the
first
player
to
get
booked
who
picked
up
a
fourth
yellow
card
of
the
season
and
will
be
suspended
for
the
next
game.

The
final
stages
of
the
match
saw
more
determined
defending
from
SCEB
as
they
frustrated
the
Islanders
who
could
not
create
meaningful
scoring
chances.
The
fourth
official
announced
five
minutes
to
be
added
for
stoppages
and
the
Islanders
threw
everything
in
their
locker
but
could
not
find
the
goal
they
were
looking
for.
In
the
end,
both
teams
had
to
settle
for
a
point
each
following
a
goalless
draw.

Mumbai
City
FC
is
up
against
Bengaluru
FC
in
their
next
at
the
PJN
Stadium
on
Monday
whereas
SC
East
Bengal
will
clash
with
high-flying
Jamshedpur
FC
at
the
Athletic
Stadium
on
Tuesday.
