Mumbai City FC Team News
Mumbai City FC recovered well after their loss in their opening ISL clash against NorthEast United FC. They fought hard against a resilient FC Goa side to clinch all three points courtesy of a penalty scored by their English striker Adam Le Fondre. Mumbai did not have their talismanic midfielder Ahmed Jahouh when they faced his former side FC Goa after he received a red card in the game against the Highlanders. His return will be a big boost to the ISL side’s midfield.
Injury update, unavailability
Sergio Lobera has his midfield metronome Ahmed Jahouh back from suspension after the Moroccan served his ban during the team’s win against FC Goa. He is likely to come into the side in the place of Hernan Santana.

SC East Bengal Team News
SC East Bengal come into this clash on the back of a crushing loss against rivals ATK Mohun Bagan in the first-ever Kolkata Derby in the ISL. They lost 2-0 against the Mariners with Roy Krishna and Manvir Singh getting on the scoresheet. The Red and Golds had some positives to take from the first ISL Kolkata Derby as Loken Meitei, Anthony Pilkington and Matti Steinman were in fine touch in midfield.
Injury update, unavailability
East Bengal have concerns over the fitness of their striker Aaron Amadi-Holloway. Given the options that Fowler has in his squad, he is unlikely to make too many changes from the team that started the last game against Mohun Bagan.
