MOHUN BAGAN WON ONE of the toughest away matches in Indian football, beating Real Kashmir FC 0-2 in Srinagar today.
RKFC were undefeated coming into this game, and playing them at home in near-zero temperature and in front of thousands of vocal fans in a compact stadium, has always been tough for opponents.
Today as well, the first half saw an aggressive sparring match between the two clubs, where Mohun Bagan dominanted possession and created more chances but Real Kashmir always remained a threat from the counter.
However, the match remained goalless until late into the game. With less than 20 minutes left on the clock, it was the fan favourite Joseba Beitia who struck first, giving Mohun Bagan a hard-to-earn lead. Just a minute later, before the Real Kashmir defence had regained their composure, Britto set up Nongdomba Naorem to knock in a second one.
The win took Mohun Bagan to the top with 10 points from 5 matches; but they are at risk of being overtaken by Churchill Brothers who are on 9 points from 4 games.
