Chennai City FC maintained their unbeaten run over Mohun Bagan in this season's I-League after their second clash this season finished in a 0-0 draw in Coimbatore. The match initially appeared a turgid affair, but things became more interesting in the second half. Despite both sides having chances to score, neither could break the deadlock and had to settle for a point each.

Here are the main talking points from the game:

An absolutely dreadful first half!

Did either team even want to win this match?

It didn't look like it in the first half. The pace was lethargic, neither team showed any industry and the play, in general, was tedious. Chennai City are trying to stay in the I-League for next season and need points while Bagan are trying to maintain their slim hopes of winning the tournament alive and also needed the points. Yet, there was nothing of note done in the first half.

Both teams plodded around without really constructing any proper moves, the ball was in midfield most of the time and one would not be surprised if a few people watching actually fell asleep. It was that bad!
