Mumbai City FC and ATK Mohun Bagan faced off in the final of the seventh edition of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Fatorda Stadium in Goa.

The game started on a pretty good note, with both sides coming up with shots at their respective ends. Soon, in the 11th minute, the Islanders appealed for a penalty which was turned down by the referee.

ATK Mohun Bagan had two consecutive chances, which weren't converted, and saw the scores remain nil-nil. In no time, Fijian Roy Krishna knicked the ball to David Williams, who shot one past the goalie to give the Mariners a lead in the game.

ATKMB's defender Tiri shot one in his own net at the 29th minute to level the scores. Both sides got several chances but failed to get past the goalkeepers, who were as strong as a wall between the two sticks.

Coming into the second half, both clubs were provided with plenty of chances but neither of the goalies decided not to give up and stopped every shot that came their way.

Roy Krishna put one into the net in the 62nd minute, which was disallowed after the referee raised the offside flag. Finally, a small error by the Mariners goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharya saw Bipin Singh find the net easily, which saw the Islanders take the lead in the game.

Mumbai City FC won the match 2-1 against ATK Mohun Bagan to win their maiden ISL Trophy.
