And it's over. Gokulam Kerala 2-1 Mohun Bagan. GOKULAM KERALA WINS THE DURAND CUP. A club found in 2017 has won a tournament that started in 1888. What a win for their side, for their club. Mohun Bagan players are devasted and so are the 43,000+ fans in attendance.

How they have done so far
Mohun Bagan: The I-League giants dominated a star-studded Group B as they defeated the likes of former Indian Super League champions ATK and West Bengal football club Mohmmaden. Then, in the semi-final, Bagan defeated the in-form Real Kashmir FC 3-1 A.E.T.
Gokulam Kerala: Placed in probably the easiest group, Gokulam Kerala defeated Indian Air Force, TRAU and former ISL champions Chennaiyin FC to set-up a semi-final clash with East Bengal. After trailing for most of the semi-final, Gokulam Kerala equalized in the injury time and then trumped over the Kolkata giants on penalties.
...
In the final of Durand Cup 2019, Mohun Bagan face Gokulam Kerala at the Salt Lake Stadium. While the West Bengal giants have won the coveted trophy a total number of 16 times, Gokulam Kerala will be trying to lay their hands on the trophy for the first time in the history of the Asia's oldest football tournament.
