I-League: Mohun Bagan edges Chennai City, stays on topFebruary 1, 2020
- Mohun Bagan beat defending champions Chennai City FC 3-2 in an energy-sapping but thrilling I-League match in Coimbatore to extend their lead at the top of the points table.
- Mohun Bagan now have 23 points from 10 games and are six points clear of second-placed Punjab FC. With their fourth loss in eight games, Chennai remained rooted at ninth spot with just eight points.
- A brace from Senegalese striker Papa Diawara and another from Spaniard Fran Gonzales, which was his sixth overall in the league, were enough to thwart an inspired Chennai come-back in the second half, when strikes from substitute N Vijay and Jishnu Balakrishnan in the space of four minutes, ignited hopes of the home fans.
