Mohun Bagan displayed a stellar performance as they clinched victory over Bengaluru FC with a 1-0 scoreline in an Indian Super League (ISL) match held on Wednesday. The green-and-maroon brigade's winning streak continues, having secured consecutive victories in their last two ISL matches.
In a tightly contested encounter, it was Hugo Boumous who found the back of the net in the 67th minute, sealing the win for Mohun Bagan. The home crowd at the stadium erupted in joy as the second half unfolded, witnessing a brilliant display of skill and teamwork.
This victory was particularly significant for Mohun Bagan, as they had faced intense pressure from last year's champions, Bengaluru FC, during the match. Notably, Sunil Chhetri, who had been instrumental in Bengaluru FC's previous successes, was absent from this encounter. However, he couldn't stop Mohun Bagan from taking the lead.
Mohun Bagan's defence was rock-solid throughout the match, thwarting Bengaluru FC's attempts to level the score. In the 75th minute, tempers flared as Suresh Singh of Bengaluru FC and Norbert Roshon of Mohun Bagan received red cards in separate incidents, adding more drama to the intense clash.
Looking ahead, on September 29th, Mohun Bagan is set to face off against arch-rivals Mohammedan Sporting in the Kolkata Football League. Following that, on October 2nd, they will lock horns with Maji Sports and Recreation Club in their quest for glory in the upcoming AFC Cup match, which will also take place in Kolkata.
Currently, Mohun Bagan is riding high in both the ISL and AFC Cup, making them a formidable force in Indian football. Their impressive performance in the ISL has secured them the top spot on the points table this season, reflecting their determination and skill on the field.
