The Mumbaikars have been handed a second defeat in a row, courtesy Al Amna's strike in the 79th minute.  
90' + 6' Steven Dias tries the one last attempt to register the equalizer but fails. It's all done and dusted at the Cooperage Football Ground. Mumbai FC 0-1 Aizawl FC.
90' + 5' Mehta is off and Chullova is on for Aizawl. They are moments away from locking the victory.
