Bengaluru FC 1-3 Mumbai City: Review, Ratings and Reaction as Islanders Pass by the Brazen Blues – Originally published on Sportslens.com

The headline clash of Matchday 10 of the Indian Super In the league, fifth-placed FC Bengaluru met second-placed Mumbai City. Carles Cuadrat's team had lost their last two games and were eager to jump back, but the islanders had been unbeaten since matchday one and had only lost points once in that run, so they weren't weak.

A fight of epic proportions It started, and here's what we made of it:


Bengaluru FC had a presentable chance within two minutes when Cleiton Silva Deshorn Brown made a small mistake Ahmed Jahouh slipped through on the right-hand side and the Jamaican striker prevailed against him.

Mumbai City took the lead in the 9th minute, however, when Hernán Santana headed the ball over from a corner and Mourtada Fall brought home from close range.

Mumbai City have won another bundle of three points from this game, which was certainly the perfect way to prepare for next week's big game. The only problem is that Ahmed Jahouh saw red so he will be banned from this match.

Mandar Rao Dessai

After Mandar Rao Dessai had started the season well, he missed a month after an unfortunate personal loss and the subsequent mandatory quarantine.

He was back in big business this evening as he was absolutely master of the process on the left. Deshorn Brown was in his pocket most of the time, and when he wasn't the Jamaican striker tried (and failed) to pursue his marauding runs up the flank. The full-back also received a deserved first assist of the season for Mumbai's second goal with a perfectly lashed cross.

The 28-year-old Indian national player finished the game with 50 strokes, a pass accuracy of 90%, 3 crosses, 2 key passes and an assist.

What this means:

Bengaluru FC remains in 5th place, while Mumbai City returns to the top of the table thanks to the first goals of the season from Mourtada Fall and Bipin Singh and the second from Bartholomew Ogbeche. The Blues lost three games in a row for the first time in ISL history, despite Sunil Chhetri's second penalty of the campaign. Ahmed Jahouh saw red for the second time this year, which was also the eighth sending off of ISL 7, but Sergio Lobera still managed to beat Carles Cuadrat for the first time.

FC Bengaluru will face SC East Bengal next Saturday, while Mumbai City will have a big fight at the top against ATK Mohun on Monday Bagan prepared.
