CFC Vs MCFC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Potential fourth place decider set to see fireworks go off in the league today.
As the league stage encounters in the Indian Super League draw to a culmination, the level of excitement and intrigue revolving these ties has massively dwindled. With the top 4 spots more or less decided, the recent encounters have seen little ramifications stem from them, seeing sides take the middle without little riding on their encounters.
However, that narrative doesn’t apply to today’s forthcoming tie in the league with this clash between Mumbai City and Chennaiyin set to decide which side occupies fourth spot in the league. With just the one point separating these two teams at the moment, the side walking away with the three points from this tie will put to bed the clamour for the coveted spot.
“The good thing is that tomorrow’s game depends on us. If we win it, we will be inside the top four for sure. I have 90-95 minutes to win one game and I’m sure that we will do it. We are doing our best everyday hoping that tomorrow finally we can say that we are in the top four,” said Mumbai’s manager Costa ahead of the upcoming tie.
While Mumbai City currently occupy that spot, Chennaiyin have kept snapping at their heels for over a month now. At a time when Mumbai have endured a mixed bag of results, Chennaiyin have kept pulling off win after win with the outfit massively punching above its weight to remain unbeaten in its last five clashes.
CFC Vs MCFC Probable Winner
Mumbai City’s 5-2 defeat to Goa the last time around epitomised why Chennaiyin have managed to place themselves in the reckoning for a spot in the top 4. Mumbai’s defence has wavered at the wrong time and with Chennaiyin’s attacking unit in such electric touch at the moment, we envision the visiting unit just about scramming its way to the three points.

CFC Vs MCFC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Although Mumbai City ended up shipping 5 goals to Goa the last time around, the scoreline could have gotten even more embarrassing for them had it not been for Arminder Singh. The wordclass shot stopper showed why he’s held n such high esteem as he parried away a carnage of shots to see us indulge in him for the clash.
CFC Vs MCFC Dream11 Defenders
A massive reason for Chennaiyin’s resurgence in the league has been the work carried out by the club in its defence. The side has massively bolstered up its backline, making for an extremely tricky side to scour past with the side letting in just five goals in his foregone five clashes.
And a massive reason for those astute showings has the been indomitable partnership of Edu Sabia and Lucian Goian with the two manifesting their skill set to move in tandem and spur the side’s defence. Both find a place in our framework for the contest while from Mumbai City we’ll be opting for S Bose for this one.
CFC Vs MCFC Dream11 Midfielders
With a staggering 9 goals in his kitty this season, Rafael Crivellaro was always going to be an instant pick for us for this tie. He’s torched his way past defences with ease to become a pivotal reason for his side tasting such consummate success recently.
Anirudh Thampa and L Chhangte comes in to give him company for the tie from the side while from the home side we’ll be going in for the quirky Rowllin Borges who has spruced his side’s attack with two goals.
CFC Vs MCFC Dream11 Strikers
We’ll be beginning with Chennaiyin’s leading scorer here with Nerijus Valskis being inculcated in our framework owing to the 13 goals he’s piled on. He finds company in Andre Schembri who has the five goals this season while Mumbai City’s top scorer with five goals, M Larbi wraps up our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With Mumbai letting five goals go past them the last time around and Chennaiyin hitting three in their previous encounter, Valskis will captain our side while Crivellaro is the vice-captain.
