NorthEast United FC have a balanced squad with some of the finest Indian players in the roster. However, the Highlanders lack the deciding factor in the squad which can win them a good number of fixtures. Mumbai City FC, on the other hand, have arguably the best squad in the league and will go into the fixture as the firm favorites. The Highlanders will have to hope that a shorter pre-season and lack of match activity will work against Mumbai City FC. We predict a 1-1 draw in NEUFC vs MCFC today match prediction.
