Jahouh will now miss Mumbai City FC's upcoming game against his former team, FC Goa.

The incident occurred in the 42nd minute when Jahouh lunged into a two-footed tackle on NorthEast United FC's Khassa Camara. The referee, R. Venkatesh, showed no mercy to the Morroccan and sent him off. 

 

The two teams went into the half-time interval with the scoreline unchanged at 0-0. Mumbai City FC, reduced to 10 men, looked sharp in the opening half but struggled to convert its chances. Interestingly, neither team has managed a shot on target yet.

The Islanders enjoyed a greater share of possession, but struggled to covert their chances and were also forced to make an early substitution as Raynier Fernandes had to be taken off for Farukh Chaudhary.
