Mumbai City FC may have been the home side yesterday but NorthEast United FC had a sizeable fan following at Navi Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium yesterday. The large north eastern student community, which resides in Mumbai, could be easily spotted in the stands with all of them sporting the white jerseys of the away team at the partially-filled stadium.
