Mumbai book play-off berth with clinical win over ATK
Mumbai City FC sealed their spot in the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2018-19 semi-finals with a clinical 3-1 victory over ATK at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata on Friday. The disappointing loss also knocked ATK out of the running for a play-off spot.
Mumbai join the likes of Bengaluru FC and FC Goa in the list of teams to have made it through. The final play-off spot will be decided between NorthEast United FC and Jamshedpur FC depending on the result of the remaining matches.
Modou Sougou scored on the 26th and 39th minute to hand Mumbai a two-goal lead heading into half-time.
Sougou completed his hat-trick on the 60th minute to extend Mumbai´s advantage even further.
