The 35th match of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2016 was to decide who gets the early bragging rights in the state of Maharashtra. Mumbai City went into the contest as the better of the two sides against FC Pune City and dominated the contest for almost the entire game but disappointingly couldn’t come out of it with all three points or even a single point. An 89th minute goal by Eugeneson Lyngdoh after a mistake by Albino Gomes gave Pune the win.

Despite the combination of Sunil Chhetri and Diego Forlan up ahead for Mumbai, they couldn’t go past a resolute Pune defence which, with the 1-0 win, picked up its first clean sheet of the season.

The loss for Mumbai means they continue to stay second in the table behind Delhi Dynamos while Pune move up to fourth from seventh in the table.
