Aser Dipanda (42', 90+2') had given the Mariners the lead towards the end of the first half before Nishu Kumar's (50') sending off early in the second half pegged the Indian Super League (ISL) season 4 runners-up down to 10 men.

However, a hat-trick by Miku (63', 65', 88') and a stunning strike by Sunil Chhetri (90') overshadowed Dipanda's brace to help the Blues make it to the final.
