Under Jorge Costa, Mumbai City FC have been playing typical Portuguese football based on classic wing play and counter attacking football. Arnold Issoko and Modou Sougou duo has been consistent for the Islanders. Mumbai City FC hardly dominated through possession. Lucian Goian and Subhashish Bose have been solid in the back for Mumbai City FC. Paulo Machado and Rafael Bastos have been controlling the midfield for the Islanders.
FC Goa have been playing Tiki-Taka football with keeping the possession throughout the matches. Coro has had another brilliant season and he is the top scorers this season with 15 goals. Ahmed Jahouh and Edu Bedia are the midfield engine of FC Goa. Seriton and Fall have been rock solid at the back for FC Goa.
With both the teams playing with different formations, tactics and philosophies, we can expect a real goal feast.
