ISL 2: Mumbai end campaign with 3-2 victory over Atletico de Kolkata

Kolkata: Mumbai City FC showed little signs of their ordeal in flood-hit Chennai as they edged out defending champions Atletico de Kolkata 3-2 in their concluding round match of the Indian Super League-2 yesterday.

In a battle between the two teams at the opposite ends of the table, the match had fluctuating fortunes but it was Sony Norde's brace (26th and 90+4th) aided with Sunil Chhetri's 82nd minute penalty that halted the table toppers three-match winning run.

Having already sealed the semis berth and aiming a top-two finish, the home side looked complacent and lacklustre as Iain Hume (45+2nd) restored parity from a spot-kick before Izumi Arata made it 2-2 with his 90th minute goal.
