Bangalore: Mumbai City FC showed great character and a steely resolve as they ended Bengaluru FC's unbeaten start to the season with a spectacular 3-2 win in the Indian Super League clash here on Sunday.

Subhasish Bose's (12') header had given Mumbai City an early lead, but Matic Grgic (58') own-goal gave the defending champs a lifeline. Diego Carlos (77') headed in what looked like the match-winner until Sunil Chhetri (89') converted from the spot to equalise.
