THE TEAM NEWS

MUMBAI CITY

  • Mumbai City bounced back from their disappointing result against Hyderabad in which they conceded a late penalty as they were able to overcome NorthEast United to get their play-off hopes back on track.
  • With the scores level just before the break, Diego Carlos broke the deadlock to give Mumbai the lead at half-time and they were able to hold on in what was a closely-contested second half.
  • That narrow victory means Mumbai hold the last play-off spot heading into this contest and they will be keen to consolidate that position but must do so without the suspended Modou Sougou whilst Subhasish Bose is out through injury.

JAMSHEDPUR

  • Jamshedpur suffered a second heavy loss in succession and they are running out of time to turn their season around by making a push for the top four with them sitting seven points outside of a play-off spot ahead of this crucial clash.
  • Another loss here for Jamshedpur will officially end their hopes of making the top four and after the 0-3 loss against ATK last time out, their prospects look bleak having conceded seven goals in the last two matches.
  • To make matters worse for Jamshedpur, Jitendra Singh was given his marching orders against ATK for two yellow cards and he will now have to sit this match out alongside Sumeet Passi who is also banned due to his accumulation of yellow cards.

THE PREDICTION

Mumbai City are in the driving seat to claim the fourth and final spot in the Indian Super League play-offs. They can move a step closer to securing that position as they host a struggling Jamshedpur who will be mathematically out of the play-off race if they do not collect all three points. They have lost their last two matches and having conceded seven goals in the process, Mumbai should have too much for them on home soil.
