KOLKATA: Gokulam Kerala FC retained the I-League title by defeating Mohammedan Sporting Club by two goals to one. This is the first time in the history of the league that a club retains the title.

However, Gokulam Kerala maintained their dominance by defeating Kolkata Club by two goals to one.

Gokulam took the lead in the 49th minute of the second half after a goalless first half. The goal belonged to Rishad. However, in the 57th minute, the Mohammedan equalized through Azharuddin Mallik and tried to return to the game. However, in the 61st minute, Gokulam regained the lead through Emil Benny.
