ISL 2020-21 Final Highlights: Mumbai City lifted their first-ever Indian Super League trophy after beating last season’s winners ATK Mohun Bagan 2-1 in the final at the Fatorda Stadium in Margao on Saturday.

After 115 matches and 298 goals, the ISL culminated with Sergio Lobera’s team winning the trophy. Earlier in February, Mumbai sealed the ISL League Winners Shield and now, the trophy too.

Mumbai showed immense grit and determination to come back from a goal down, which was scored by David Williams. But later in the first half, an own goal from Tiri levelled things up between the two teams. Biping Singh rose to the occasion in the dying seconds of the game and scored the winner with a left-footed strike to the far corner.

Mumbai win their first-ever trophy and it's pure ecstasy for Sergio Lobera and his men. Coming back from a goal down, they showed their grit while sticking to their flair and philosophy. Bipin Singh's winner seals the deal in the end! Double winners!

21:27 (IST)13 Mar 2021
90' GOAL! Mumbai City 2-1 ATK Mohun Bagan

BIPINNN! Is this the winning goal? So, so late, what a dramatic display of football! Fall launches an attack with a long ball from deep, Ogbeche chases it... but then Arindam comes out and fumbles up, gifting it to Ogbeche. The big striker takes a touch or two, gets past two defenders and then calmly passes the ball to an oncoming Bipin. The winger slots the ball home with his left foot.

21:23 (IST)13 Mar 2021
UPDATE: Amey Ranawade in stable condition
21:21 (IST)13 Mar 2021
84' Both Mumbai City, ATKMB makes a change

Goddard comes on for Boumous, last season's Golden Ball winner. On the other camp, Rane replaces Lenny Rodrigues.

21:09 (IST)13 Mar 2021

What a shot, what a save! Right after Ogbeche replaced Le Fondre, ATK Mohun Bagan break from their right. A ball finds Javi in the middle, and the midfielder pulls the trigger from outside of the box. Amrinder saves it and the ball goes out off the bar.

20:59 (IST)13 Mar 2021

From a cross from the right flank of ATK Mohun Bagan, the ball finds itself to Rakip inside the penalty box and he nudges it behind his own net. But the linesman raises the flag as Krishna is deemed to be offside for being in the sight of line of the goalkeeper.

20:55 (IST)13 Mar 2021

Mumbai comes back into the match with two chances... Santana's curling free-kick gets saved by Arindam, and then, Boumous misses an open goal after a goalline scramble involving Le Fondre. The Lobera-ball has certainly found itself back into the mix.

20:47 (IST)13 Mar 2021
50' McHugh goes into the book for a foul

ATK Mohun Bagan starts well as they start off with two back-to-back attacks. Lenny finds himself in acres of space from a cross, but he drags his shot outside. Minutes later, Manvir curls one off-target. Then, McHugh is shown a yellow card for fouling Boumous.

20:42 (IST)13 Mar 2021
46' Kickoff!

It's do-or-die time for both the teams. Rakip replaces Ranawade.... and ATK Mohun Bagan get the ball rolling.

20:27 (IST)13 Mar 2021
HT: Mumbai City 1-1 ATK Mohun Bagan

That's it, it's half-time at Fatorda! Although the score is tied at 1-1 at the break, it has been dominated by Mumbai City so far. Just like their previous two meetings, Lobera's men have been in control... with the ball, the possession and the shots. Apart from Williams' opening goal, the only other real threat posed by ATKMB was by Krishna towards the end of the half. On the other hand, Mumbai have shown true grit to have come back from a goal down and then take the contest by its throat. All to play for now!

20:20 (IST)13 Mar 2021
45 2' Amey down injured

OUCH! Amey Ranawade goes to the ground and his body starts shaking in pain. It was a coming together between two players and the right-back was on the wrong side of it. The medical staff rushes onto the field as the play is stopped for a while. He gets up on his feet, but a head injury like that... a concussion is always knocking on the door. He is finally taken away by an ambulance.

20:08 (IST)13 Mar 2021
36' Mumbai dominating the fixture now

Ever since conceding the opening goal of the contest, Mumbai have been rather imperious. Calm and composed on the ball, brilliant movement off it. Boumous has a shot saved by Arindam, then Bipin slightly misses a header. Close calls there!

20:00 (IST)13 Mar 2021
29' GOAL! Mumbai City 1-1 ATKMB!

OWN GOAL! My oh my, what drama! Mumbai finally find their equaliser after maintaining the tempo for a long time. Jahouh redeems himself for that mispass with a brilliant 60-yard ball to Bipin... but Tiri gets to the ball first and heads it past Arindam.

19:56 (IST)13 Mar 2021
25' Mumbai controlling the tempo now

After Mumbai's Santana gets booked for a silly tackle on McHugh, the tempers have come down for Lobera's men. The league winners have shifted to a more composed playing style now, keeping the possession and not giving the ball away easily.

19:49 (IST)13 Mar 2021
18' GOAL! Mumbai City 0-1 ATKMB!

WILLLIAAMMMMSSSS! The Australian breaks the deadlock after pouncing on a mistake from the Mumbai defence. Fall and Jahouh were put under pressure by Krishna and a loose pass fell into the path of Williams. Boom, right-footed shot. Goal!

19:42 (IST)13 Mar 2021
11' Bipin goes down, no penalty for Mumbai

Mumbai has a chance as Raynier hits an off-target shot and continue to grow into the game. Later on, Boumous and Bipin torment ATKMB defence on the left wing. A quick passage of play, a Le Fondre backheel... and Bipin is brought down inside the box by opposition skipper Pritam! But the referee instructs the winger to get back up on his feet. Controversial decision?

19:37 (IST)13 Mar 2021
6' ATKMB in the driving seat

Right from the start, it has been all ATK Mohun Bagan! The Mariners are playing on the frontfoot, already marauding inside the opposition box on two occasions. Javi went down inside the box after a tackle by Jahouh, but no penalty given.

19:30 (IST)13 Mar 2021

Here we go! After the formalities between the two captains, Roy Krishna and Amrinder Singh, the final is underway!

19:20 (IST)13 Mar 2021
The stage's set for the summit clash!
