A hat-trick by Modou Sougou helped Mumbai City FC secure a comfortable 3-1 win over ATK at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata on Friday. The win also helped the visitors confirm a berth at the playoffs. Sougou opened the scoring in the 26th minute after he ran past two defenders and struck a first-time volley into the bottom corner.
The second goal came in the 39th minute as Sougou slotted past the ATK goalie after receiving an inch-perfect cross from Arnold Issoko. Mumbai started from where they left as they increased their lead at the hour-mark. Sougou completed his hat-trick after receiving a wonderful through ball by Paulo Machado. Andre Bikey, however, found the net in the 67th minute, as he scored the only goal for the hosts.
