Everton Santos Pinto (59th minute) and Thiago Santos (88th minute) scored for the hosts and helped Mumbai register their first win of the season. Mumbai had lost their opening game to Bengaluru FC.

The break almost came in the 24th minute for Mumbai, and it was Goa’s right back Seriton Fernandes who nearly scored an own goal. He tried to poke away Santos’ dangerous cross, but ended up hitting the post with his effort.

Mumbai then should have taken the lead in the 31st minute. Balwant was sent through on goal by Achille Emana, but a heavy first touch made it a tight angle for him to score from as his weak shot evaded the target.

However, it was Goa who had the best chance of the half in the second minute of added time. Ahmed Jahouh weaved into the box, and got his shot away which was blocked by Gerson Vieira. The ball came to Corominas, who drew a point-blank save from keeper Amrinder Singh.

The half, which started slow, ended on a high. Nonetheless, it remained goalless as the teams went into the break. Two minutes into the second half, and Balwant once again found himself in on goal with space to shoot. But while his shot was on target this time, Goa Kattimani had no trouble in dealing with it.

The home team finally broke the deadlock a minute before the hour mark after Kattimani received a back pass, and didn’t notice Santos closing him down from the side. The keeper’s clearance hit Santos, and resulted in the ball rolling into the net to make it 1-0 to the hosts.

Goa nearly got a second three minutes later, but Lanzarote’s effort from distance was met with a finger-tip save by Amrinder. Instead, it was Mumbai who got the second in the 88th minute when Thiago came in from the right flank and squeezed the ball through Kattimani’s legs to restore his team’s lead.

That was the last chance of the match as Mumbai got their first win and points of the campaign, while inflicting a first defeat of the season on Goa.
