Mumbai City and Chennaiyin are hoping to bounce from recent defeats that have turned their campaigns sour at an unwanted stage. The loss against Kerala Blasters is a big blow for Mumbai City, which has been showing signs of resurgence under the new management. Meanwhile, Chennaiyin remain at the verge of the top six positions even after the loss to Punjab. The Mumbai Football Arena will be the location for this fixture.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Mumbai City have lost only once in the campaign

The club’s last home defeat in the Indian Super League was in March 

Reasons to be fearful

Mumbai City have looked shaky in the last two games

The club has not kept a clean sheet in back-to-back matches

Mumbai City showed a lot of improvement in the first few games under Petr Kratky. However, the performance against Mohun Bagan and Kerala Blasters have been unlike the team assembled by the 42-year-old coach in his first few matches. Mumbai City continue to look devoid of confidence in the final third and this was a major problem for the team over the last few weeks. Alberto Noguera is the only player set to miss this match due to an injury.

Star man – Jorge Pereyra Diaz

Jorge Pereyra Diaz and his supremacy at the top of the ISL goalscorers list this season is coming under threat. He is no longer the outright top scorer in the league this season. Despite a lack of goals since the 4-0 win over Bengaluru at the start of December, the 33-year-old remains in decent shape for a goal.

Chennaiyin FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Chennaiyin have lost only once in the recent five matches

Owen Coyle’s men have improved defensively in recent games

Reasons to be fearful

Chennaiyin’s last win against Mumbai was in February 2020

The club has suffered five straight losses against Mumbai City

Chennaiyin appeared to be struggling for a direction into the top six places not too long ago, but a run of just one defeat in the last five matches has put the team in a very strong position going into the last game of 2023. After the away match against Mumbai City, Chennaiyin get back to action in a string of AFC Super Cup games.

There are no injury issues for Chennaiyin leading up to this match.

Star man – Jordan Murray

Jordan Murray has become a joint top scorer in the Chennaiyin ranks with three goals to his name. The Australian has also come up with two assists so far this season. The club are still slowly getting back their stars, but the form of Murray, who has three goals in his last four league matches, will be crucial.

Chennaiyin have suffered on a string of occasions at the hands of Mumbai City in recent years. However, Chennaiyin are coming into the game with some decent levels of confidence and performance from recent matches. Mumbai City clearly appear to be shaken from the game against Mohun Bagan and the after-effects are likely to remain in this match. Both teams might settle for a point from this game.
