ISL 2020-21: NorthEast United Start Campaign With 1-0 Win Over 10-Man Mumbai City
Kwesi Appiah scored from the spot as NorthEast United FC began their Indian Super League campaign with a 1-0 win over Mumbai City FC here on Saturday.
A red card and a penalty turned a game, that Mumbai were otherwise dominating, on its head and handed NorthEast United FC a winning start at the Tilak Maidan.
Appiah (49′) scored the only goal from a penalty after the Islanders were reduced to 10-men following Ahmed Jahouh’s red card just before the breather.
In the early stages, it looked like NorthEast were aiming for nothing more than a goalless draw, with extreme caution visible in their game plan.
