Sunday's action from the Hero I-League 2016-17 saw the two debutants Chennai City FC and Minerva Punjab FC cancelling each other out in a goalless draw in Chennai. In the "Maha Derby" Thoi Singh's first half strike proved sufficient for Mumbai FC to secure all three points. Back in Kolkata, Mohun Bagan - whose venue had to be switched to Barasat Stadium due to the problems acquiring their home ground - came out with all three points against a resilient Churchill Brothers side courtesy of a Balwant Singh's winner.
