Kerala Blasters are keen to overturn a poor run against Mumbai City when they go up against a rejuvenated team from Maharashtra. Kerala Blasters are coming into the game in great shape following the recent win while Mumbai City know that it will always be a difficult game for away teams at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Kerala Blasters managed a first win in three

The team also picked up a first clean sheet in three

Reasons to be fearful

The team’s goals have dried up of late

Kerala Blasters have not beaten Mumbai City in the last three

Kerala Blasters were relieved to get a crucial victory over Punjab in the last match. It puts the team in a good position going into two difficult matches to conclude 2023. The draws against Chennaiyin and loss against Goa has led to Kerala Blasters conceding the top spot in the table. The team are now level with FC Goa who have played two games less. Therefore, Kerala Blasters cannot afford to drop any more points. Adrián Luna, Jaushua Sotirio, Freddy Lallawmawma, Jeakson Singh, and Aibanbha Dohling constitute the lengthy injury list for coach Ivan Vukomanovic.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos came up with the winner against Punjab from the penalty spot. The Greek forward stands tall in the Kerala Blasters squad with five goals and an assist from his eight appearances this season. Even though he has had bouts of indiscipline, the 30-year-old can be expected to be a big goalscorer for the home team.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Mumbai City managed a stellar comeback against Mohun Bagan

The team have beaten Kerala Blasters on three consecutive meetings

Reasons to be fearful

Mumbai City suffered from a lot of indiscipline in the last match

The team has struggled for goals under the new regime

Mumbai City picked up the first win of the new era under Petr Kratky but in rather surprising circumstances, as the win against Mohun Bagan was accompanied by no less than seven red cards in the 90 minutes. A number of players will be unavailable for the coach as a result. Mumbai City will also be going up against a difficult home team in the form of Kerala Blasters. A victory in this game could ensure the top spot going into 2023 for Mumbai City.

Star man – Jorge Pereyra Diaz

Jorge Pereyra Diaz remains the top scorer in the Indian Super League with six goals from his nine appearances. Even though he did not get goals in the game against Mohun Bagan, the 33-year-old will be a player to watch in this match.

Kerala Blasters are aiming for back-to-back victories for the first time since November. It has been a patchy few weeks for the team from the south, who are in danger of dropping significantly away from the top spot if the run persists. However, Mumbai City will be shaken after the shocker against Mohun Bagan – despite the victory. Kerala Blasters are very strong at home with four wins from six.
