The Islanders' get ready to take on ATK Mohun Bagan in their second game of the Durand Cup
After a rollicking start to their debut campaign at Durand Cup, Mumbai City FC will take on hosts and local favourites ATK Mohun Bagan in their second Group B match on Wednesday, August 24 at the VYBK in Kolkata with the action kicking off at 6 pm IST.
Lalinzuala Chhangte (89', 90') bagged a brace while Vikram Partap Singh (45+3') and Greg Stewart (65' P) contributed a goal each in what was a comprehensive 4-1 win over Indian Navy FT in the Islander’s opening match of the competition.
Currently leading Group B, Des Buckingham's side will look to consolidate their place on the top when they square off against ATK Mohun Bagan in a battle that has given some memorable moments over the last couple of years.
ATK Mohun Bagan, on the other hand, went down 2-3 against a spirited Rajasthan United FC in their opening match and are currently placed fourth in the points table.
Who said what
Des Buckingham: I am very happy with the start we have got. We conceded first against Indian Navy, but we settled in quickly and played good football overall. But, it's just the beginning, and we want to carry forward the momentum.
