Mumbai City FC beat Chennaiyin FC, secure semis spot in ISL 2016

Mumbai City FC became the first team to qualify for semi-finals of Indian Super League after a thoroughly deserving 2-0 win over Chennaiyin FC at Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai, on Wednesday. Mumbai City scored once in each session through Matias Defederico (32nd minute) and Krisztian Vadocz (60th minute) to earn a comfortable win and a place in the play-offs with a match to spare for the first time. Mumbai City FC are on top with 22 points from 13 matches and even if they lose their concluding clash against Delhi Dynamos on December 3, they are assured of a top four finish. FC Goa (11 points from 11 matches), Chennaiyin FC (14 points from 12 matches) and FC Pune City (15 points from 12 matches) cannot overtake Mumbai's tally of 22 points even if they win all their remaining matches, while NorthEast United FC and Kerala Blasters play amongst each other later, which means at least one of these two teams will fall behind Mumbai when they drop points.
