Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa (ISL 2016)
Date: 21 October 2016.
Venue: Mumbai Football Arena, Andheri
Time: 7.00pm IST
Broadcasters: Star Sports (English) Star Gold (Hindi)
Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa Match Preview
Mumbai City would try to forget the last match against Delhi Dynamos as they slipped two points and just settled for a Draw. A bad day to forget for Mumbai City Fc star goalkeeper Roberto Netto who is the captain of this side in the absence of Uruguayan international Diego Forlan. The Brazilian has been solid in goal and complemented the defensive lineup.
Whereas the Star in this ISL season 3 in the Defense department is the Romanian Lucian Goian. The Goans may not have had the most successful start to their season, but they do believe in attacking from the word go even in away matches, and that promises a busy evening for the Mumbai defense and their goalkeeper in particular.
Zico has decided to go with the Indian goalkeepers in the starting Lineup. Moreover, probably because it enables him to play an extra foreign player in the outfield. Although he kept that habit up in the last match by starting with Subhasish Roy Chowdhury in place of Laxmikant Kattimani.
The former India international has not been a frequent starter in the ISL, but did enough in his first outing for 2016 to suggest he could be a long-term occupant between the posts for a team that is still seeking the right combination of the field, riddled by lack of form and fitness of several of their best players. FC Goa would be eyeing their First victory of the Hero ISL 2016 as they play Mumbai next.
Mumbai City FC(4-3-3)
Goalkeeper: Roberto Netto
Defenders: Ashutosh Mehta, Anwar Ali, Gerson Vieira, Aiborlang Khongjee
Midfielders: Pronay Halder, Leo Costa, Krisztián Vadócz
Strikers: Cafu, Sony Norde, Defederico
FC Goa (4-5-1)
Goalkeeper: Laxmikant Kattimani
Defenders: Debabrata Roy, Lucio, Gregory Arnolin, Raju Gaikwad
Midfielders: Romeo Fernandes, Mandar Rao Desai, Jofre Mattieu, Trindade Goncalves, Richardson
Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa Prediction
The Brazillian mastermind Zico cannot line up a winning combination for FC G0a at the Pitch. Moreover, they certainly lack the defensive gameplay with errors. Whereas, Alexandre Guimarães has worked with every possible combination on the Pitch even after the absence of Diego Forlan and especially Sunil Chhetri who is busy with Bengaluru FC in the AFC Cup. I Predict a 3-2 Mumbai City FC victory. Norde, Defederico, and Leo Costa to score for Mumbai while Reinaldo and Romeo Fernandes to score for FC Goa
