Jeppiaar IT FC were quick to get off the blocks and tested the FC Pune City custodian as early as in the second minute when Pratima Mukhia's shot went straight down the opposition custodian's throat.

With the match being confined to the midfield both teams tried to outfox the opponent, but instead of succeeding, only nullified the danger.

The only highlight of the first half came in the 20th minute when Pradeepa danced past the FC Pune City defence line but failed to test the opposition custodian with a strong shot.

Two minutes after the change of ends Dalima Chhibber latched onto a Jyoti Burrett pass and smashed it home to give FC Pune City a 1-0 lead.

Thereafter, FC Pune City dictated the proceedings and tested the Jeppiaar custodian with strong shots.
