Match Preview – Hyderabad FC vs Mumbai City FC


The Nizams are going to have a thrilling fixture against the Islanders today at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco.

Hyderabad FC is still unbeaten in the ISL 2020-21 season along with Bengaluru FC. Hyderabad FC has collected nine points in five matches by winning only two games and getting a draw in three other games. Just like the last time, they will be looking towards winning this match and getting back to the top four on the points table.

Whereas Mumbai City FC has grabbed thirteen points in their last six matches. They have lost only their first match and have been unbeaten since their last five matches. So, they will be looking towards a win in this match to continue their streak.

Santana is in the fourth place in the Golden Boot list for this season and Le Fondre is in the fifth place by playing two more extra games. So, it will be an interesting game to watch who’s position might change after the game.


Rowllin Borges, Liston Colaco and Chinglensana Singh are the Indian players to look out for.

Rowllin Borges has been consistent in all the games for Mumbai City. He has also scored a spectacular header against Odisha FC. He along with Ahmed Jahouh has created many chances for Mumbai.

Liston Colaco has become a well-known name this season for the Indian Football family. His breathtaking skills along with his fast-moving pace have helped Hyderabad in scoring two important goals in their last match. Without those assists, they would’ve lost the match against East Bengal.

Sana Singh is also a well-known name these days due to his solid defence at the back. He is the reason for ending Roy Krishna’s streak in this season. He will tie up with Odei Onaindia and make sure that they will stop the likes of Le Fondre and Ogbeche.


Ahmed Jahouh, Adam Le Fondre and Aridane Santana are the foreign players to look out for.

Ahmed Jahouh is also another player who has played almost all the matches this season for Mumbai City. Jahouh’s precise distribution of the ball in the midfield will play an important role today.

Adam Le Fondre has scored four goals in six games for Mumbai. As even Aridane Santana has the same number of goals, they are on the toe to toe for the Golden Boot this season.

Aridane Santana is a key player for Hyderabad as he is the lone striker for them. He has scored four goals in four games. He has scored the fastest brace in the history of ISL in his last game.


Hyderabad FC has three of their foreign players, Sastre, Chianese and Sandaza injured.

Mumbai City has Golui injured and Mandar under quarantine.


Hyderabad and Mumbai have faced each other two times last season where Mumbai City FC won the first match and the second match was, fortunately, a draw for Hyderabad FC.

Looking at both the sides, Mumbai City FC would target for a win as they had a draw last match. Whereas Hyderabad FC will try to continue their unbeatable streak, so they would be happy taking away a win or a draw after this match. With the squad strength favouring Mumbai and Hyderabad having three of their foreign players out due to injury, we predict this match would be a win for Mumbai City FC.
