The defending champions, Bengaluru FC will be playing hosts to Mumbai City FC on Saturday as they look to continue their positive run in this season’s campaign.
Carles Cuadrats’s men currently occupy the second spot with 13 points on board while being just a point behind ATK. Bengaluru FC’s defence has just conceded two goals in the ongoing season and will make matters hard for Mumbai City FC.
Things haven’t been all rosy for Mumbai as they’ve won just the one game against Kerala Blasters this season which was soon followed by four draws out of their last six games. Jorge Costa will be keen on registering back-to-back wins in order to stand a chance of making it to the playoffs as the season edges close to the end.
Date- Sunday, December 15 | Kick-Off- 7:30pm (IST) |Venue- Sree Kanteerava Stadium, Banguluru
Rahul Bheke has returned to fitness and was subbed in during the 1-0 win over Odisha FC in Pune . Bheke is likely to come in place of Albert Serran in defence. Harmanjot Singh Khabra and Nishu Kumar have been real assets for their side and should retain their spots in the lineup. Manu Onwu remains on the sidelines due to an ankle injury. With that being said, Sunil Chhetri, Udanta Singh and Aashique Kuruniyan should be in charge of the attack.
Mumbai City FC
The positive news for Mumbai City is that Mato Grgic, Paulo Machado and Modou Sougou have returned to fitness and will hopefully play a part for the visitors on Sunday. Amine Chetri and Mohamed Larbi should be getting adequate support with the number of players returning to the squad.
Bengaluru FC- Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, Harmanjot Singh Khabra, Rahul Bheke, Juanan Gonzalez, Nishu Kumar, Dimas Delgado, Erik Paartalu, Raphael Augusto, Udanta Singh, Ashique Kuruniyan, Sunil Chhetri
