Referee calls it a day at the Mumbai Football Arena and Mumbai City FC get their first win at the venue against FC Pune City.
Goals from Sougou and Bastos gift Mumbai their first full points (three) in the 2018-19 ISL and the boys are thrilled.
FC Pune City have been poor in front of the goal and hardly challenged Mumbai City FC after a few good moments at the beginning of the match. Marcelinho couldn't inspire them after coming off the bench in the second half.
Jorge Costa's Mumbai, on the other hand, made the best use of their chances and could have scored two more goals.
Lucian Goian stepped up to take a penalty and missed it towards the end of the game. Paulo Machado, the Mumbai City captain, was close and his effort came off the post before the referee blew the final whistle.
The stats may show that Pune dominated possession and had more shots on goal but all of that is of no use if a team isn't lethal up front. 
That's it from Mumbai tonight. Stay tuned for more updates from Sportskeeda.
90+5' OFF THE POST!!
Mumbai City's Paulo Machado pulls the trigger at the other end with a wonderful left-footer but the attempt kisses the right post and rolls away.
90+4' Meanwhile, Pune hit Mumbai on the counter and Alfaro tries to get a late goal. He decides against it and then squares it to Matt Mills, whose shot is blocked.
Mumbai City players have a heated discussion on who will take the penalty. Finally, Lucian Goian steps up and it's a poor take from him.
Kaith dives to the right and punches the ball away to come up with a great block in the dying moments of the game.
Vishal Kaith now steps out to clear the ball after Arnold beats the offside trap to stretch into the right flank.
Arnold outsmarts Kaith and then goes down to a foul by Gurtej. Referee points to spot and will we have a third goal here?
90' Alfaro is close to scoring again!
Amrinder is out, nowhere close to the goal and Alfaro slips past him but Lucian Goian is there to save the day for Mumbai.
How did Alfaro get there, beyond all the Mumbai defenders? No one knows. But Mumbai solder on.
89' Alfaro comes up with a late attempt. 
He steps behind to get header onto the right post after a cross by Sarthak Golui.
But the attempt goes over the roof of the net and even if it hadn't, Amrinder was there.
87' Now a comeback looks unlikely despite Marcelinho's 360 degree Zinedine Zidane type turn at the midfield, which tricks two Mumbai City players. But Goian rushes into the ball and wins possession, then wins a foul when a hopeful Marcelinho tries to overpower him.
84' No goal? 
The game is back and Marcelinho shoots into the goal right after the restart.
But it won't count. The ball has to make contact with another player after this type of drop-ball restart to the game.
83' Six changes done in the game and it's Mumbai City who are making their final substitution. A couple of more minutes wasted for FC Pune City. 
OFF - Raynier Fernandes (11)
ON - Milan Singh (6)
80' Diego Carlos changes flank and he has a go at the goal from the right. The shot hardly has any power to challenge Amrinder and Mumbai City stay up once again. 
77' Sehnaj Singh of Mumbai City FC receives treatment and Mumbai make a substitution. Another foreigner out, and it's the second goalscorer who goes off for young 19-year-old Pranjal.
OFF - Rafael Bastos (16)
ON - Pranjal Bhumij (17)
75' Coach Miguel Angel Portugal is now angry.
He's handing out instructions from the touchlines but it appears his boys are not paying attention.
He'll obviously be enraged. Pune City are nowhere close to their best.
72' No inspiration from the midfield.
Pune have all the possession at their disposal and their attackers are making sneaky runs into the box. But there's no one - barring Diego Carlos - who is able to inspire some assists from the midfield. And Mumbai are waiting for Pune to come at them.
66' Mumbai City make their first change as an Indian comes on for a foreigner, that too a goalscorer.
OFF - Modou Sougou (28)
ON - Mohammed Rafique (8)
65' Alfaro hits the crossbar!
Diego Carlos does all the work again. He pushes himself down on the left flank and dips a cross into the box. Adil Khan can only manage a misdirected header but Pune keep the chance alive and float in another cross from the right, this time through Sarthak Golui.
The ball finds Alfaro at the left post and turns for space and then strikes the crossbar from a difficult angle.
61' Talk about impact!
Diego Carlos' cross is only half-cleared and Marcelinho gets at the end of it from the edge of the box. 
He unleashes a powerful one with his left but Amrinder is there to stand in front of it like a wall.
59' So Pune make their third change as well, hoping to inspire a comeback for the ages.
OFF - Martin Diaz (21)
ON - Marcelinho (10)
59' Pune make their second change and it's still not Marcelinho. Oh wait, he is!
OFF - Nikhil Poojary (11)
ON - Gurtej Singh (3)
Rafael Bastos is sent through by Arnold in the right and the forward tries to play it back to Arnold after pushing through to the touchline. However, an alert FC Pune City defender steps ahead of Arnold and gets rid of the danger.
52' Up and enjoying a two-goal cushion, Mumbai City are playing defensively at the moment. They are happy to sit back and ward off the attack set up by Pune midfielders, who are not posing much of a challenge at the moment. 
Diego Carlos drives in from the left after a 1-2 with Shouvik Ghosh and squares the ball to Robin Singh at the middle, nicely setting him up for a shot.
Robin tries to take the shot with his left and completely mistimes the attempt. The ball meekly bounces off his right leg and the chance goes to a waste.
Can we have Marcelinho at least now?
46' Right. So the Stallions are down 0-2 and make no changes before the second half. Marcelinho, a proven gamechanger, is yet to come on.
HT at the Mumbai Football Arena and Mumbai are 2-0 up.
The hosts came into the game with a purpose, looking to rewrite the record that was wholly against them. Even though they were slow at first, they stunned the FC Pune City with an early goal, which changed the momentum of the game.
Modou Sougou scores the first goal of the night, tucking in a cross which ricocheted off the right post.
Then, Lalchhuanmawia Fanai slides into Sougou inside the box, which gifts the hosts a penalty. When you watch the replay, you realise that Sougou goes for the fall even before Fanai's sliding tackle makes contact.
Nevertheless, Rafael Bastos ensures it's 2-0, giving the hosts an advantage.
Pune City have never lost at Mumbai Football Arena but that could change tonight. 
Second half up!
45+3' Well, barely five minutes after coming on, Robin Singh is booked for a foul on Mumbai City's Sehnaj Singh. And that's all the action from the first half of the Maha Derby.
There will be four minutes of added time due to the stoppage for Kuruniyan's treatment.
45' MUMBAI 2-0 UP! 
Rafael Bastos steps up to take the penalty.
Vishal Kaith dives to his left and looks down as Bastos fires it bang on the middle to give Mumbai City the edge before the half-time.
The record between these two teams will definitely tilt in favour of Mumbai now.
43' PENALTY for Mumbai!!!
Fanai receives a booking for a foul in the box on goalscorer Sougou, who was on goal.
Mumbai hit the pedal on the counter after Alfaro has a shot on target.
And just before Sougou is about to unleash a shot, Fanai clips him and brings him down. No double punishment or else Pune would be down to 10.
But it kinda seems like Sougou reacts even before the contact is made.
41' And that's the last we'll see of Ashique as he's forced off because of the challenge by Goian.
OFF - Ashique Kuruniyan (22)
ON - Robin Singh (23)
39' Emiliano Alfaro down but no foul!
He is sent through by a Pune City midfielder and tries to power his way into the box. Subhasish Bose just clips him outside the box but Alfaro tries to surge on and then loses balance to take the fall just at the edge of the box.
Referee Santosh Kumar is not interested despite Alfaro's protests.
35' Two players are down at the moment and it's because of a challenge by Lucian Goian on FC Pune City's Ashique Kuruniyan. Kuruniyan gets the ankle of Goian and goes down himself.
The challenge seemed rash on Goian but he's back on his feet.
Kuruniyan receives some treatment and the play is back on after 2 minutes. Pune playing with 10 men now.
31' Jonathan Vila pushes Mumbai defender Lucian Goian down on the left and escapes a booking. Paulo Machado's take is poor again and Vishal Kaith easily collects the ball and tries to play the counter for Pune City. 
Machado better stick to floating in crosses now as his set-pieces have been wasteful.
28' Pune on the attack now.
Mumbai City FC custodian Amrinder Singh now comes up with a save to deny Nikhil Poojary.
FC Pune City's Fanai again dips in a pin-point cross to Poojary, who strikes goalwards on the volley. Amrinder is challenged and he just gloves away the danger to save his team. Before any other Pune attacker could jump on the block, Mumbai City defence clears away the danger.
And who saw that coming? Modou Sougou has hardly been a threat all this while and he gives the hosts the lead against the run of play.
Vishal Kaith fails to react to a cross by Paulo Machado from the left - he thinks it has gone out of play. But it bounces off the right post and Sougou has only few seconds to react to it.
He changes his run instantly - the markers around him are standing helplessly - and drives the rebound into the net.
Here's an example of how teams can just run over the Mumbai City FC defence.
Emiliano Alfaro is sent through and he lifts it up from the touchline into the box as the defender still runs back to catch up to the Uruguayan striker.
Winger Nikhil Poojary is unmarked and he runs in to connect with the volley. 
The shot takes a deflection from a Mumbai City defender and goes wide but the referee somehow has missed that and given a goal-kick for Mumbai City.
18' First corner of the game and it's in favour of FC Pune City. 
And it's completely wasted as Ashique Kuruniyan is barely able to float the ball into the near post.
Arnold Issoko is flagged offside after a run down the left flank a couple of minutes after the possession was dominated by FC Pune City.
14' Left-back duties from the centre-back.
Subhasish Bose is playing as a centre-back here for Mumbai City FC but he's down on the side of the pitch to clear away the danger from the rushing FC Pune City attackers. 
10' CLOSE!
Paulo Machado
with a great delivery into the box.
Arnold Issoko goes for an overhead kick from the left post and the ball is chested down by Adil Khan of FC Pune City at the right post. His opponent Subhasish Bose is right there to tap it in but he is unable to hit anywhere near the frame.
9' Referee Santosh Kumar books FC Pune City's Ashique Kuruniyan for pulling the jersey of Arnold Issoko. And Mumbai have a free-kick just outside the box on the right.
8' Now it's Mumbai City FC who are making the visitors run around them. The possession between the two sides are almost equal now but it's still only a battle in the midfield.
5' Way over the bar! Mumbai City have a free-kick now after Adil Khan and Sarthak Golui both converge on Rafael Bastos. Mumbai have a go at goal from 30 yards out and Paulo Machado hits it way off the target.
4' FC Pune City controlling possession in the midfield in these early stages. They appear to have settled into this game already, making the Mumbai City players run around them. They, however, need to avoid those long balls from the defence into the attack, which is seeing them lose possession.
1' Within 20 seconds of the match kicking off, Pune expose the frailties of the Mumbai City defence. Lalchhuanmawia Fanai (Chhuantea) pumps in a ball from the left flank into the centre of the box. Emiliano Alfaro sneaks in, rises high to greet it with a header, which goes just wide. 
0' Okay it's for the Mumbai City FC vs FC Pune City game. It's just not any derby, it's the MAHA DERBY!
The players are out on the pitch and we'll have the Indian national anthem first before the match kicks off...
Jana Gana Mana.....
Oh wait! Did you notice that? Lucian Goian of Mumbai City FC, a Romanian, is singing the Indian National Anthem again. He's definitely mouthing the words correctly.
Maha Derby and Maha expectations from it! We're 15 minutes away from the kick off at Mumbai Football Arena and the players have completed their warm-ups and are back in the dressing room getting ready for 90 minutes of some thrilling football.
Mumbai have never managed to keep a clean sheet in 2018. Amrinder Singh is one of India's best goalkeepers but the back four of Mumbai are letting them down. Left-back Subhasish Bose, who struggled as a centre-back during India's friendly draw against China, is starting this game as a stopper-back again.
In the previous encounter between the two sides on Feb 11, Marcelinho and Diego Carlos struck as Pune went home with a 2-0 win. In the other leg on Nov 29, 2017, Balwant Singh scored for Mumbai City FC but a brace by Emiliano Alfaro gave Pune the three points.
A keen battle is on the cards between the glorious attacking power of the visitors, FC Pune City, against the struggling back-line of Mumbai City FC, who have let in three goals so far in the season.
Interesting Starting XI named by FC Pune City coach Miguel Angel Portugal. There's no Marcelinho in it - he's on the bench.
The Brazilian is returning after suspension but the coach has faith in Diego Carlos, who scored the equaliser against Delhi Dynamos in their last game.
Robin Singh also starts from the bench for FC Pune City.
No surprises from the squad named by Mumbai City coach Jorge Costa. He's going with a 4-2-3-1 formation against Pune.
FC Pune City Starting XI:
Vishal Kaith (GK)
Sarthak Golui, Martin Diaz, Matt Mills, Lalchhuanmawia Fanai
Adil Khan, Jonathan Vila, Ashique Kuruniyan, Nikhil Poojary
Emiliano Alfaro, Diego Carlos

Kamaljit Singh (GK), Robin Singh, Marcelinho, Shankar Sampingiraj, Marko Stankovic, Sahil Panwar, Gurtej Singh
Mumbai City FC Starting XI:
Amrinder Singh (GK)
Sauvik Chakrabarti, Lucian Goian, Shouvik Ghosh, Subhasish Bose,
Sehnaj Singh, Raynier Fernandes, Paulo Machado, Rafael Bastos, Arnold Issoko
Modou Sougou

Ravi Kumar (GK), Joyner Lourenco, Marko Klisura, Milan Singh, Mohammed Rafique, Sanju Pradhan, Pranjal Bhumij
In a few minutes, both teams will come up with their line-ups for the first Maharashtra Derby of the season. This is Aravind Suchindran and I will keep you company over the next three hours and provide you all the big updates from the match.
FC Pune City have a tendency to score late goals - they have scored 13 in the last 15 minutes of the match. Bengaluru FC, however, have struck 15 goals late on.
The Marcelinho impact - FC Pune City have never lost a match in which the Brazilian has scored.
In the last two seasons, Marcelinho has recorded 101 shots, out of which 56 were on target - the most by any player.
And he's not just an out-and-out striker too. He has made 51 key passes - the most by any player in the last two seasons.
And this evening, Marcelinho will look to kick-start his ISL with a bang.
Mumbai City will also be missing the services of Matias Mirabaje for this game. For Pune, defender Keenan Almeida could miss the game due to an injury.
Problems in the defence continue to haunt Mumbai City FC. Lucian Goian is the only bright spot in the defence, making 13 tackles in the two matches so far. He has alone won 11 aerial duels while the rest of the defenders together managed 11.
Mumbai City's only win against Pune City came in the inaugural season of the ISL back in 2014. Andre Moritz had scored a hat-trick, helping Mumbai register a 5-0 win. Since then, Mumbai have just been able to score three goals against Pune in the other seven matches. Could that change today though?
In eight matches between the two sides, Pune City have secured five wins and lost twice. There has been just one draw between the two teams.
Boy, what an exciting week of ISL games we have had so far. First, ATK secured a 2-1 win over Delhi Dynamos, riding on a curling strike by Balwant Singh and then a neatly worked goal by Noussair El Maimouni. And yesterday, it was a roller-coaster of a match when Chennaiyin FC, no NorthEast United, no Chennaiyin FC, no wait it was finally NorthEast United FC who walked away with the three points, courtesy of a 4-3 win at the JN Stadium.
What's in store today at the Mumbai Football Arena?
Mumbai City vs FC Pune City preview
FC Pune City have enjoyed a really long break but they need to quickly regroup themselves for the first Maharashtra Derby of the season as they face Mumbai City FC at the Mumbai Football Arena at 7.30 pm this evening.
Pune City drew their first game 1-1 against Delhi Dynamos, thanks to a late equaliser by Diego Carlos. Mumbai, on the other hand, lost their first game against Jamshedpur FC and then drew 1-1 with Kerala Blasters. Like Pune, they too had to rely on a late goal from Pranjal Bhumij to take home a point from the Kochi-based Blasters.
On Friday, both teams will look for their first win of the season but on paper and form, FC Pune City look more lethal.
Last season, FC Pune City had won both their matches against Mumbai City 1-0  (at home) and 2-0 away. Mumbai have not managed a win at home in their last three encounters against Pune.
What makes things more difficult is the return of Marcelinho to the FC Pune City squad from suspension. Marcelinho and his strike pair Emilian Alfaro scored 17 of Pune's 31 goals last season and coach Miguel Angel Portugal will bank on the duo to strike again.
Jorge Costa-coached Mumbai City FC will have their hands full for sure. But they too have season campaigners like  Paulo Machado, Arnold Issoko and Rafael Bastos in the mix. Defender Lucian Goian will hope to stay focused to stop the attack from Marcelinho and Alfaro.
This will see the defensive approach of Costa clash against the retention-based style of Miguel Angel Portugal. All in all, it promises to be an exciting match-up on the day of Vijaya Dashami and Sportskeeda will provide you live updates throughout the proceedings. Stay tuned!
