Mumbai City FC become the first Indian club to win in Asian Champions League

Mumbai City FC created history by becoming the first Indian team to win an AFC Champions League match.

Des Buckinham's side came back from 0-1 down to beat Air Force Club of Iraq 2-1 in a Group B encounter.

The win means Mumbai City move level on three points with Air Force Club and are three adrift of Saudi Arabia's Al Shabab,

who picked up their second win in a row with a 3-0 victory over Al Jazira of the United Arab Emirates.

The three-time AFC Cup champions’ Hammadi Ahmed scored first in the 59th minute before Diego Mauricio (70′ pen) converted from the spot and Rahul Bheke’s header in the 75th minute did the job.

Additional six minutes were added, but the Indian club held their nerve and went on to pull off a historic win.
