A brilliant solo effort from Dimitri saw Mohun Bagan edge past East Bengal.
While Mohun Bagan was focusing on the ball and game play, East Bengal was focusing on pressure tactics on the referee instead of the game.
East Bengal got aome benefits from that as referee bowed down to their pressure and showed a Yellow card to Anirudh Thapa for a very soft foul. This turned lethal when Thapa got marching order from a foul in the second half.
Mohun Bagan could have led by 2 goals in the first half, however the score levelled at half time.
Just after Thapa got marching order, three quick changes were done by the coach, and Cummings introduced to the ground.
As East Bengal tried to block Cummings, Dimitri solo effort found a brilliant goal.
East Bengal tried hard, however Manvir and Cummings missed few more opportunities to increase the margin.
