Emiliano Alfaro and Marcelinho, two of the most lethal forwards for FC Pune City, proved deadly as Marcelinho's piercing through passes troubled the Goan defence on several occasions. Alfaro got a big opportunity to put the Stallions ahead but failed to do so. Marcelinho kept troubling the Goan defence and finally got his award as a brilliant world class through ball went pierced the Gaurs' defence to reach Alfaro, who put it past a hapless Kattimani to take the lead in the 71st minute.
