It’s gonna be a battle between midtablers Mumbai City FC who take on Hyderabad FC who are at the bottom of the points table. Mumbai City FC will be playing in their home ground at the Mumbai Football Arena and will be looking to get all three points after 3 successive draws whereas Hyderabad FC who haven’t won since their home win against Kerala Blasters will be looking for a much needed win and rise up in the points table. It’s a battle of attack vs attack as both sides have some fantastic strikers in their teams and it would be interesting to see which team comes out on top.
Here we have picked five such players who we think can change the course of the game.
Paulo Machado(MCFC) :
Machado has not been at his best of form but he is someone who can single handedly change the game. With the return of Sougou, he along with him will look to get all three points against Hyderabad FC. With a goal and a assist so far Mumbai fans will expect some ‘Machado Magic’ at the Mumbai Football Arena.
Marcelinho Pereira (HFC) :
The Brazilian attacker who has been part of ISL since 2016 has been in great form for Hyderabad FC with two goals and an assist but the team is lacking and are behind in the points table. Being a senior player Marcelinho has to bring his team together and take on Mumbai City FC at their home.
Amine Chermiti(MCFC) :
Chermiti has been in top form for Mumbai City FC with 4 goals so far his quick and good run in the penalty box has helped in creating many chances and he will look to do the same against Hyderabad FC. With Hyderabad defence not been upto the mark by now, Chermiti can be a big threat for Hyderabad FC.
Modou Sougou(MCFC) :
Modou Sougou was the leading goal scorer foe Mumbai City last year similarly the expectations were quite high thou till now his performance his just decent with 2 assists in 7 games, he missed few games due to injury but is now back and will be a player to watch out for.
He has been in brilliant touch this season for Hyderabad FC with 3 goals in 5 games which includes a brilliant brace again table toppers Atk, Hyderabad fans will expect Bobo and Marcelinho to create some magic in this away fixture and get his side all three points from this fixture.
