This has been an excellent half of football and Mohun Bagan will go into the break rather satisfied with the lead. Darryl Duffy scored from a Prabir Das assist to give The Mariners a lead. Valencia have replied but all of those have not resulted in a goal. Prabir has been top class on the right wing, delivering some excellent crosses. Omodu has been the stand out player for Valencia and the home side will be hoping for a revival in the second half. We will be back in 10 minutes.
