Mumbai City FC hasn’t performed that well after the inception of the league and probably finished seventh and sixth respectively in the first two ISL season. However, this time its a whole new story Mumbai City FC (MCFC) have made a bright start to the 2016 campaign with two hard-fought wins in their first two games. While they did not show too much flair in either of those 1-0 wins — the first one away to local rivals Pune and the other one against in-form NorthEast United.
Atlético de Kolkata is one of the third unbeaten team beating up Kerela Blasters at Kochi and had a 2-2 draw against defending champions Chennaiyin in their opening game at home. Just like the first two seasons, ATK seems threatening with counterattcaking gameplay with Borja Fernandez providing moves in the midfield. Whereas Javi Lara and Doutie creating chances, and Hume and Postiga proving to be a constant threat up front.

ISL 2016: Mumbai City FC vs Atlético de Kolkata Predictions
Mumbai City FC is rolling in victories and just from the past week they defeated the table-toppers North East United FC at home. The Credit for sure goes to the Uruguay marquee man as well as Mumbai City FC Captain Diego Forlan. However, a keen observation from the previous Atlético de Kolkata Matches seems that the Portuguese marquee man Helder Postiga cannot resist playing the complete 90 minutes.
Although talking about the Gameplay of respective teams, Mumbai City FC has dominated their Matches possession wise and Atlético de Kolkata have made the most of the Counter-attacking moments. I Predict a 3-1 Mumbai City FC victory. Forlan, Leo Costa, and Defederico to score for Mumbai, while Ian Hume to score for Kolkata. Mumbai City FC has completely transformed this season.
