Mohun Bagan held East Bengal to a dull goalless draw in their 20th Round clash of I-League at Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata on Saturday.
The match which turned out to be a tactical battle between the two coaches, Trevor Morgan of East Bengal and Karim Bencherifa of Mohun Bagan, was dominated by East Bengal who missed a number of scoring opportunities, a media release said.
The much touted derby was played before a three fourth empty stadium. Incidentally the last time the two arch rivals played a barren draw was way back on 24th April,2010 in a Kolkata League clash. Since then the teams have met nine times.
