FCG Vs MCFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Either side scours for its opening win in the new season.
Stunned in their league opening affair, for Mumbai City, the 1-0 defeat was something which the club wouldn’t have envisioned. Under the tutelage of Lobera, the club looked set to maraud its way to a comprehensive win against an opposition which has typically offered little in the league.
While Mumbai were undoubtedly the dominant force on the day as they dictated proceedings and ran the play, the side failed to make its dominance count. Despite revelling in 60% of the ball, the side failed to come up with the all-important, a plight which left them with a defeat.
Elsewhere, Goa showed why this season looks so promising for them. The only club to have the home advantage this season, the side made it count as it erased a two goal deficit in the second half of the encounter against Bengaluru to walk away with a well-earned 2-2 draw.
“My focus is on my team and I am not thinking about the opposition. The most important thing is to be positive, competitive, and win three points. Against Mumbai or any other team, our mentality will be the same — win three points,” said Goa’s Ferrando when speaking about his approach towards the tie.

Our set of picks for the forthcoming match begin with the selection of Amrinder Singh from Mumbai City. His display the last time around once again showed why he’s held in such high stature with him refusing to let in anything past him.
Goa did end up leaking two first half goals against Bengaluru but that did nothing to dissuade us from opting for a trio of picks from the club. If there’s any team which is going to keep its goal untouched today its them, a side which has traditionally been regarded as a stern and well disciplined backline.
We’ll be opting for the trivalent of Ivan Garrido Gonzalez, Seriton Fernandes and James Kevin Donachie from the club for the matchup.
Despite recording a goal contribution, Hugo Boumous did everything in the attacking side of the game for Mumbai. The player was in electric touch, trying everything with his repertoire to try and restore parity for his side on the day.
Joining up with him for the affair are the imperious Hernan Santana and Rowllin Borges, two players who can not only clobber attacking plays but win challenges to pull off ball recoveries.
The league’s top scoring attack last season, Goa were always going to find coverage in this slot. With Mumbai City showing their vulnerabilities the last time around, the partnership of Jorge Ortiz Mendoza and Edu Bedia will be well aware that it can intertwine its skill set to act as the catalyst of the side’s win today.
New signing Igor Angulo Albondiga proved why Goa were right to opt for his services this season. Scorer of both of the goals for his side, the player was responsible for conjuring up a hard fought draw for his club.
Mumbai meanwhile will see Bartholomew Ogbeche retain his place in our setup courtesy of him being last season’s top scorer.
