Mumbai City welcome East Bengal to the Mumbai Football Arena for a game that could be tricky for both opponents. East Bengal’s biggest win of the season was followed by a goalless draw against Punjab in the last match. Meanwhile, Mumbai City are heading on the back of a goalless draw with Goa. The result keeps the two teams six points away from each other.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Mumbai City have scored two goals in two of the three home games

The club are likely to improve further under Petr Kratky

Reasons to be fearful

This season, Mumbai City have not managed a clean sheet at home

The offensive performances of the team were quite underwhelming against Goa

Mumbai City have an underwhelming outcome against FC Goa in the last match. The club are now preparing for a sequence of three home games in the next four league encounters. After not making too many changes in the game against Goa, Petr Kratky might have seen enough of his players to try and bring about his own identity to the team.

Alberto Noguera is the player unavailable for the hosts because of an injury. 

Star man – Jorge Pereyra Diaz

Jorge Pereyra Diaz is the top scorer in the squad by a huge margin. The 33-year-old from Argentina has been able to pick up six goals from just seven league matches this season. Even though his exploits in the Champions League did not turn out well with no goals in his five games, he is a good pick to get goals in this match.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

East Bengal are unbeaten in the recent three matches

There have been consecutive clean sheets for the team

Reasons to be fearful

The high of a big win over NorthEast United could not last long

East Bengal have picked up only one away victory in 2023

East Bengal will be quite cautious coming into the game after having failed to win both away matches so far this season. Even though the team managed a big win over NorthEast United, they could not follow that up with a victory in the recent match against Punjab. As a result, the club sit outside the top six places. 

East Bengal coach Carles Cuadrat has never managed a win against Mumbai City in his five outings. He will be without Jordan Elsey due to a cruciate ligament injury.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva is the top scorer in the East Bengal squad with five goals from his eight league matches. The 36-year-old has the experience to build on his goals so far this season. Averaging just under a goal every 82 minutes so far this season, he has been a strong performer for East Bengal.

East Bengal are unbeaten in the recent three matches. Their only away victory so far in 2023 was against Mumbai City. This time around, the hosts are likely to be well-prepared for this game. East Bengal are not great when it comes to away matches and after seeing a dull performance from the team against Punjab, Mumbai City should be confident of getting three points from this game.
