Mumbai City FC
Mumbai City manager, Jorge Costa has quite a task ahead due to the number of players that have recently been sidelined due to injury. Mato Grgic was subbed off in the first game itself and will be away for a few weeks. To add further detail, Sauvik Chakravarti was sent off by the ref against Chennaiyin FC in the most recent game. Modou Sougou also picked up an injury in the first half against Chennai and is unlikely to start versus Mumbai. Meanwhile, club captain, Paulo Machado’s involvement in the upcoming fixture is also in doubt.
Josep Gombau’s side will be eyeing a win after consecutive defeats in the league so far. In terms of players missing out, Carlos Delgado was shown a straight red in the 2-1 defeat to NorthEast United.
