Chennaiyin were off to a good start but in no time, Mumbai were back to doing what they do best. They dominated possession of the ball and dictated the tempo of the game.

The first chance fell to Igor Angulo, not Cassio Gabriel, after Vishal Kaith made a meal of an easy collection.

But Angulo was ready to strike, although the seasoned striker’s ball found the outside of the post to Mumbai’s dismay.

Angulo had another chance to make it 1-0 for the Islanders in the 22nd minute. Ahmed Jahouh dinked a delectable ball for him but the 37-year old Spaniard again shot wide.

Meanwhile, Chennaiyin struggled to get the ball out of their half as the league leaders bossed possession.

Then, in the second period, it was more of the same as Mumbai tried to break the resolute Chennaiyin defence.

In fact, in the 70th minute, Gabriel fired in a first-time shot but Vishal Kaith made a good reactive save. Kaith was then immediately back in action again to pull off a double save.

Mumbai head coach Des Buckingham brought in Ygor Catatau for Angulo in search of a single goal, at least.

But this elusive deadlock-breaker came from an unlikely source in the 86th minute.

Bheke scored his first goal for the club, nodding in a Jahouh’s free kick past Kaith who tried hard. But he saw the ball cushion into the back of the net.

Ariel Borysiuk fired a rocket from around 40 yards in the 89th minute. However, the ball went just over the bar and Chennaiyin lost their first game of the season.
