Despite producing excellent performances of late, Punjab remain in the bottom four places.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Punjab have managed eight goals in the last four matches

The club’s forward lineup has been firing on all cylinders

Reasons to be fearful

Punjab have struggled at home with three defeats in the last five

The club’s only match against Mumbai City ended in defeat

Punjab produced a solid performance to get a 2-0 victory over Hyderabad in the last match. This was the third victory for the team in the last four matches and it has certainly helped keep up with the clubs pushing for a top-six position. Despite being 10th in the standings, Punjab are only three points behind Jamshedpur in sixth place. Coach Staikos Vergetis will be especially pleased with the momentum shown by the team over the last few weeks.

Star man – Luka Majcen

Luka Majcen had a solid game against Hyderabad after coming up with a goal and an assist. He has now taken his league tally to 6 goals for the campaign. The 34-year-old has failed to score only once in his last four matches for Punjab.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Mumbai City are emerging as a proper title contender at the business end of the season

The club has dropped only two points in the last four games

Reasons to be fearful

Mumbai City are not spectacular going forward

The club has over 1.5 goals in just one of the last seven matches in all competitions

Mumbai City still remain firmly in the title race but the team failed to take advantage of the game in hand over Odisha. Now, both teams are level at the top but Mohun Bagan are also breathing down their necks. Mumbai City will be away from home in three out of the next four games. Coach Petr Kratky has no injury concerns in the squad ahead of this match.

Star man – Bipin Singh

Bipin Singh did not get on the scoresheet against Goa. However, he is expected to be more effective in an away match when there is more space – especially in counter-attacking situations.

Mumbai City are pushing for the top spot and they have been able to enjoy decent momentum coming into the match. Mumbai City have not been excellent in the offensive areas and this could make them vulnerable against an opponent like Punjab. The home team have offensive players who have been at the top of the game. Punjab are likely to give a good run for Mumbai and get a stalemate.
