Coming back to the match, Odisha FC were undone by Mumbai City FC in a tightly-contested match as they lost the game by 2-0. A Shubham Sarangi own goal and a 94th-minute Bipin Singh strike were enough to secure all three points for the Islanders.
In a lacklustre first half, neither side posed a threat in the opposition’s penalty area. Both defences were alert to mop up the loose balls but it was the inability of players to find the decisive pass as well as the failure to apply the final touch that kept this game goalless at the midway point.
Five minutes into the second half, the deadlock was broken as the Islanders took the lead courtesy of an own goal. Lallianzuala Chhangte was found on the right flank by Ahmed Jahouh. Chhangte unleashed a shot on target after a quick exchange with Greg Stewart. Amrinder Singh saved the effort with his foot but the ball hit defender Shubham Sarangi and rolled into the goal.
With this win, Mumbai climbed to the second spot in the points table with four points. They have won one out of their two matches while the other ended in a draw. On the other hand, Odisha are placed on the seventh position in the 11-team table with three points. They have won one game and lost the other.
Mumbai will next play hosts to the ISL 2021-22 Shield winners Jamshedpur FC on October 22. The Juggernauts return to the east coast to host Kerala Blasters on October 23.
