Mumbai City FC picked up a 4-2 victory over Delhi Dynamos FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Monday.
Delhi took the lead just three minutes into the match through an own goal after Lallianzuala Chhangte’s dangerous cross from the left flank was turned into his own net by Mumbai right back Souvik Chakraborty.
Mumbai equalised just after the break. Pritam Kotal conceded a spot kick. Bastos’ attempted strike from inside the box struck the Delhi right-back’s outstretched arm and the Brazilian converted the resulting penalty himself.
The visitors also were victims of an own goal, after a short corner by Mumbai saw Rafael Bastos dink the ball into the box where Martin Crespi’s defensive header lopped over Gomes into his own net.
Delhi equalised almost immediately through a set piece at the other end. Milehic’s floated free-kick from the right flank was cushioned into the net by Gianni Zuiverloon who beat his marker in the air before finishing with his head.
Mumbai were ahead again through substitute Raynier Fernandes in the 69th Minute before Paulo Machado put the icing on the cake in the 80th minute.
The win lifts Mumbai to the fourth spot in the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) table with 17 points from 9 matches. Delhi, on the other hand, stay in the bottom position with just four points.
Kerala Blasters played a 1-1 draw against Jamshedpur FC on Tuesday at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi.
