Match Preview – Mumbai City FC vs Jamshedpur FC

-

Table-toppers Mumbai City FC clash against Jamshedpur FC tonight at GMC Stadium, looking to extend their four-game winning streak.

Mumbai City FC began the season with a 1-0 loss to NorthEast United FC but bounced back and found their rhythm under head-coach Sergio Lobera. Specially mentioning, head-coach Lobera has been seen rotating his backline which is turning out to be pretty successful to keep clean sheets.

On the other hand, Owen Coyle has still been in search of a good combination of playing eleven. Jamshedpur FC has won only one match while three others were drawn with one loss. It will be interesting to watch out how the team builds up today and prove themselves.

3 INDIAN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR

Jackichand Singh, William Lalnunfela, and Rowlin Borges are the Indian players to look out for.

Jamshedpur FC’s winger Jackichand Singh will have the responsibility to chip and cross the ball into the box while William will partner with Valskis in the final attacking position. Borges is the key player of Mumbai City FC, playing a pivotal role in midfield, as he will partner with Ahmed Jahouh to keep the ball possession.

3 FOREIGN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR

Hugo Boumous and Adam le Fondre will be the two foreign players to look out for from Mumbai City FC camp. Attacking-midfielder Boumous will have the responsibility to provide astonishing assists and ensuring a smooth transition of the ball across the field. Nerijus Valskis is the name from Jamshedpur, who caused a lot of trouble to opponents by his pacy runs behind the defence and score goals. Currently, he is the second top-scorer in the season with 5 goals.

INJURIES

No injury concerns have been reported from neither side. Hence, both the attacking-minded coach will have options to choose the best starting eleven with some super subs.

HEAD TO HEAD
