Mumbai City books final date with Mohun Bagan in ISL 2023-24

In the second leg of the semi-final match, resulting in a 5-2 aggregate victory. And with the victory, the Islanders are set for a highly anticipated final against the Mohun Bagan Super Giant. This comes after the Islanders' severe trip through the semi-finals, when their performance in both legs underlined their ambition to win the coveted ISL Cup, especially after a previous setback to Kolkata-based Mohun Bagan, who had emerged as ISL Champions earlier in the month.

Mumbai City FC, headed by Petr Kratky, demonstrated excellent skill and togetherness, with major contributions from Jorge Pereyra Diaz and Lallianzuala Chhangte, both of whom scored in the second half, preventing FC Goa from scoring. Chhangte, in particular, has been a notable performer this season, scoring ten goals in the ISL, echoing his success the previous season, when he was given the Golden Ball.

Chhangte's performance, together with that of his teammates, particularly in vital times of the game, demonstrated the team's tactical ability. His 83rd-minute goal was a textbook example of capitalizing on the opposition's push forward, using a through ball from Vikram Partap Singh to effectively bypass FC Goa's defense.

Meanwhile, Diaz's initial goal in the 69th minute demonstrated Mumbai City FC's offensive strength through clever positioning and taking advantage of the opportunity.
