It has been revealed some time ago from reports that Ali Mabkhot's goal on penalty has led to Mumbai City's 0-1 defeat to Al Jazeera in a Group B match of the AFC Champions League football tournament. This was Mumbai's second thing in three matches. He had to face 0-3 defeat to Al Shabad in his first match. Mabkhot's goal in the 40th minute created a gap between the two teams, which helped Al Jazeera gain three points in the match played at the King Fahd International Stadium on Thursday.
Uae club Al Jazeera dominated the first half. During this time, he had 70 percent possession of the ball, but the real chance to score that goal had not yet been created. Mumbai, meanwhile, focused on counter-attacking. Mumbai suffered a setback initially while defender Amay Ranawade was injured in the ninth minute, replacing Mehtab Singh. It was because of Mehtab's mistake that Mumbai lost the penalty. Mabkhot made no mistake in converting it into a goal. Mumbai City also created history by beating Iraq's Air Force Club 2-1 on Wednesday. He became the first Indian club to win a match of this top-level continental club league.
