Chennai City then scored in the 71st minute through defender Veniamin Shumeiko to seal three points. "Beating Mohun Bagan is like winning the World Cup," an ecstatic Chennai City coach V. Soundararajan summed up the mood in the camp. Chennai City started with a flourish and tried to maintain the momentum almost right through while Mohun Bagan looked rudderless and lost for ideas. "Mohun Bagan are a well-organised team, but they seemed to lose ball possession early," said the Chennai City coach. Chennai City were reduced to 10 men when Pradeep Mohanraj was given marching orders for intentionally handling a goal-bound shot.
