    Kalinga Super Cup 2024: Mumbai City (2) vs Gokulam Kerala (1) | Full-Time

    Mumbai City earns three points from their Kalinga Super Cup 2024 opener against Gokulam Kerala. Late late drama at the Kalinga Stadium as Mumbai came from being 1-0 down to win the match by 2-1. Petr Kratky showed his masterclass by bringing Ayush Chhikara in and he was the man who brought Mumbai back into the match.

    It was unfortunate that Gokulam didn't get the one point from the match as Mumbai won a late penalty and El Khayati stepped up to win the game for the Islanders. Avilash Paul's three back-to-back saves surely was the highlight of the match but it went in vain.
