FULL TIME : East Bengal 0-0 Mohun Bagan
Man of the Match : Joseba Beitia (Mohun Bagan)

Spoils are shared between the rivals as no side could dominate proceedings long. East Bengal did come back into the game after a dismal first-half but a disciplined Mohun Bagan side allowed things remain status quo as the game ends goalless. This was your host, Sayak Dipta Dey (@sayakdd28), signing off. Keep following Sportskeeda for all the analysis of this game. Thank You for keeping us company for more than two hours.
