East Bengal had 8 shots on goal compared to 7 from Mohun Bagan. Both the teams had 5 shots on goal but what matters is the two goals that the Mariners managed to score.

The Red and Gold have been miserable when it comes to putting their chances away and that came back to haunt them today.
...
This also means East Bengal will end the season without any silverware at the national stage. They began the I-League so well riding on the wave of positivity brought in by Trevor Morgan's appointment.

But it all began to fall away in the middle before they defeated Bengaluru and looked like they had it in them to go all the way. However, their wheels fell off late on and the defeat to Mohun Bagan in the second leg was the final nail in the coffin.
...
And the final whistle blows.

Mohun Bagan win their second consecutive Kolkata Derby and this one ensures that Bagan book a place in the final where they will take on Bengaluru FC who defeated I-League champions 1-0 earlier today.

Duffy with an excellent interception. He goes down the right and then cuts back to Katsumi. The skipper finds Sehnaj who plays in Yusa with a delightful ball.

And that is tame and into hands of Subhashis.
