Full-time report: Mumbai plied further misery on defending champions Chennaiyin FC 1-0 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai, courtsey a goal from Modou Sougou in the 20th minute, to send them to the bottom of the points table.

The Senegalese scored from a rebound in the 20th minute at the end of an attack that started with Mumbai's counter that saw Sogou bolting into the Chennai box and fired his shot straight at the goalkeeper who punched it back at Sougou and he finished easily on the rebound to the far post.

After securing a goal in the first half, Mumbai looked to defend resolutely in the second half, holding on to their lead. They did, however, come close to scoring an equaliser in the 62nd minute when Augusto squared a ball to Carlos Salom whose shot took a deflection and went on to hit the right post. The ball richocheted for Thoi Singh whose shot was blocked unknowingly by Amrinder Singh.
