Mumbai City FC and Atletico de Kolkata remained unbeaten in the third edition of the Indian Super League (ISL) but the home side’s winning run was stopped with a 1-1 draw thanks to an 82nd minute equaliser by Javi Lara.

Matias Defederico had given Mumbai the lead in the first half after he unleashed a shot from distance and the left footed shot crept into the corner. Mumbai had more chances to extend the gap but were denied by the crossbar or poor finishing.

In the second half, Mumbai sat back and absorbed pressure but after being reduced to ten men, ATK grew larger in the attack and made good in the 82nd minute with a Lara effort. The ATK player took a shot from distance and that took a wicked deflection to fly into the top corner.
