Federation Cup: Mohun Bagan see off arch rivals East Bengal to reach final

Webdesk: -Mohun Bagan defeated East Bengal 2-0 in the semi-finals of the Hero Federation Cup at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack today.

Darryl Duffy’s 35th-minute header and Balwant Singh’s 84th-minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides as the defending Champions progressed to the Final of the Hero Federation Cup where Bengaluru FC wait for the challenge.

It was a bright start for East Bengal in the semi-finals and the Red and Golds could have taken the lead as early as the 8th minute when Plaza failed to tap home from close range after Rafique had found the Trinidad & Tobago forward in the box. Three minutes later, Rafique himself saw his header from inside the box being denied by a fine Debjit save.
