Mumbai City are hoping to announce their title challenge in style when they take on Goa in a crucial clash at the Mumbai Football Arena. Goa were top of the table not too long ago but the club are now facing a big fight just to stay in the top five. The fortunes of the two teams have changed dramatically in recent weeks and it also increases the worry for Goa, who have had a string of losses against this opponent in recent years.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Mumbai City have put together three successive wins and clean sheets

The club’s record against Goa is impressive with five wins in the last six meetings

Reasons to be fearful

Complacency is a problem for Mumbai City ahead of this game

The pressure on the team will be significantly higher

Mumbai City are just one point away from going top of the table. The club has put together a string of victories in recent weeks. Even though the matches against Bengaluru and Chennaiyin were expected to provide three points for Mumbai City without trouble, the club have done extremely well to live up to the expectations. After having received a number of players back from the treatment table, Mumbai City have shaken off the poor form seen during December.

Star man – Bipin Singh

Bipin Singh came up with a brace in the fixture against Chennaiyin. These were his first goals since the home match against Mohun Bagan in December. After a stellar performance, Bipin Singh is likely to be pushed to the starting line-up.

FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Goa scored two goals for the first time in four matches

The club took the lead for the first time in four ISL games

Reasons to be fearful

The confidence is wearing thin after three straight defeats

Goa have not scored in two of the last three games

Goa are certainly in a troublesome position after losing three successive games. Just a few weeks ago, Goa appeared to be in a position to win the title quite comfortably. They have now lost their unbeaten record in a big slide that has also hurt their strong defensive prowess. Goa no longer have the best defensive record in the league after shipping four goals against Kerala Blasters. Coach Manolo Márquez is likely to be thinking about changes at this juncture. Sandesh Jhingan is out because of a knee injury.

Star man – Noah Wail Sadaoui

Noah Wail Sadaoui has four goals for the season. He has not been on the score sheet in his last six appearances. Even then, Goa are likely to keep their faith in the 30-year-old Moroccan midfielder who can come up with the goals out of the blue. The 30-year-old is halfway through his last season’s tally of nine goals in 20 league appearances.

Goa appeared to be in an excellent position for putting up a title challenge but they are now down to 5th in the standings. Mumbai City have come up from behind and they have momentum going into this match. Mumbai City have done exceedingly well over the last few matches and they have also overcome Goa in five out of the recent six meetings. The home team are looking good for a victory.
