Mumbai City FC started their campaign with a 1-0 victory against Kerala Blasters followed by a goalless draw against Chennaiyan FC and a home defeat against Odisha FC (2-4).
Whereas FC Goa with one win and two draws are looking good but not at their best of forms. It will be an encounter to watch out for as Mumbai takes on Goa tonight. TalkSports 24×7 picks five such players from the two sides who we think can change the course of the match.
• Amrinder Singh (Mumbai City FC) :
Out of the first three games Amrinder has managed to keep 2 clean sheets which included some brilliant saves and as a leader he is turning out to be more matured. Against an attack like Coro, Jakichand
And Brandon, Amrinder has to be in top form to enable his side to takeaway something positive from the match.
• Ferran Corominas (FC Goa) :
The highest goal scorer in the history of Indian Super League and two time Golden boot winner Coro needs no introduction. This
season he has already netted twice in three games as he has announced himself back again and he will be looking to get some goals and 3 points for his side in this away fixture.
• Mohamed Larbi (Mumbai City FC) :
With 1 assist and 1 goal Larbi has been a constant threat for opponents’ defence and against FC Goa he will look to create chances and score
goals to give his side their first home victory after a defeat against
Odisha FC in their last home game.
• Jackichand Singh (FC Goa)
Goa has scored the most number of goals in Hero ISL history and midfielder Jackichand has assisted quite a few of them. With his speed he can outrun any defence on his day and Mumbai City FC will miss the services of senior defender Mato Grgic which can be a danger sign for the hosts.
• Brandon Fernandez (FC Goa) :
The Indian attacking midfielder is looking sharp just like the previous season and in three games he already has 2 assists to his name and he will be a constant threat for Mumbai City FC as he can set up goals for someone like Corominas who rarely misses out on converting half-chances into goals.
