Mumbai City beat Bagan 2-0, book AFC Champions League spot

Mumbai City FC beat ATK Mohun Bagan 2-0 in the final league encounter of the Indian Super League on Sunday to book a place in the coveted AFC Champions League next season. Sergio Lobera s side comfortably won after first-half goals from Mourtada Fall (7th minute) and Bartholomew Ogbeche (39th). Despite losing the top spot to Mumbai, ATK Mohun Bagan will still harbour hopes of salvaging their season with a second successive Hero ISL title. Being the team with the most goals from set-pieces this season, Mumbai drew the first blood in a similar fashion, scoring with their first shot on target. Ahmed Jahouh s free-kick fell to an unmarked Fall, whose angular header gave Mumbai the lead. The Mariners took control of the game soon after conceding but were forced to make a substitution in the 19th minute with Prabir Das replacing the injured Sandesh Jinghan. Chances were far and few in between after the opening goal but it was from another set-piece that Mumbai doubled their advantage.
