At the halfway stage vs Kerala Blasters, Mumbai City were a goal down but a spirited comeback led by Bipin Singh and Adam Le Fondre gave the Islanders a deserved victory in the end. Captain and our No.1, Amrinder Singh was in top form, producing some mind-boggling saves in a bid to deny the Blasters a way back into the game.
With 4 draws in their previous 5 games, FC Goa are still very much in contention to grab a spot in the top-4. With 10 strikes already, Igor Angulo will lead the line for the Gaurs in a fixture that will play a crucial role in the qualification scenarios as the tournament reaches its business end.
With 33 points, Mumbai City have already had their best season ever in terms of points but their eyes will be firmly set on three points which will further strengthen their hopes of a top-spot finish.
Ahmed Jahouh returns from suspension for the Islanders.
Who Said What:
Sergio Lobera: "It is important as a coach to have a fuller squad because you have more options. There are no easy games in this competition. Maybe there are favorites to win the league, but in a single game there are no favorites because every game is difficult, every game is a tough game."
Rowllin Borges: "Everyone is working hard and we are excited for this match. And, I hope we can get a good result tomorrow!"
