MCFC Vs ODS Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rampant Odisha step out looking to displace Mumbai from fourth place.
A late surge from Odisha has translated into a constant surge of points for the side, seeing them go on a winning spree at exactly the right time. The side revived what was a lacklustre 2019 with two wins on the bounce in 2020, seeing them imbed fresh life into their season and throw themselves back in contention for a spot in the top 4.
Defeating Chennaiyin 2-0 the last time around, the fifth placed side find themselves just the lone point behind Mumbai City at the moment. A win would see them displace their opponents and occupy the revered spot, something which will buoy a side which looks extremely ominous at the moment.
Elsewhere, for Mumbai, the 2-0 defeat the last time around brought an end to a three match winning spree for the side. As they look to overhaul that performance, they know things will be extremely tricky for them against a reinvigorated side, a team which will be ruthless and relentless in a tie which looks set to be an intriguing affair.
Very little to separate the two outfits with the finest of margins coming into play at the end of the 90 minutes. A regressing Odisha side had thumped Mumbai 4-2 the last time these two sides had met in the league and we envision them pulling off the same display come today’s contest.

MCFC Vs ODS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
A major reason for Mumbai City failing to string together a meaningful set of results and nail down their position in the top 4 of the points tally has been down to their waning defence. It’s one which has seen the side waver in their bid to consolidate a spot in the top 4, something the side will be looking to fix come today’s encounter.
And one player who has ensured he’s flawlessly assisted the side in their bid to shun sides from scoring past him has been their goal-keeper. Arminder Singh has shown immense vigour and determination to parry away a barrage of shots to see us opt for him for this one.
MCFC Vs ODS Dream11 Defenders
With both the sides having issues in their defence, the likelihood of a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely today. The two sides were involved in a six goal tie the last time around and with both these units having shipped 34 goals in between them in 22 encounters, we envisage this being a goal galore encounter.
It sees us limit our side to the bare minimum of three picks for the day with us picking out a partnership from Odisha. They look way the likelier out of the two to emerge with a cleansheet from the contest, something Carlos Javier and Shubman Sarangi are both capable of pulling off.
Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick from Mumbai City for us with the attackingly inclined Mato Grgic being snared by us.
MCFC Vs ODS Dream11 Midfielders
Up against a dreary defence, this looks set to be a tie where Odisha will be torching their way down the park to herald their way a slew of goals. It sees us bring in their pivotal attacking names for the day, players who’ll be involved heavily in a plethora of the side’s attacking soirees.
In Xisco Hernandez and Marcos Tebar we are getting in a flair filled and quirky partnership, one which will sniffle and leave a tiresome Mumbai City defence tiresome on the day. Elsewhere, we have gone in with a duo of picks from the opposition as well with Mumbai being stellar in attack to see us bring in Raynier Fernandes and Mohammed Rafique.
MCFC Vs ODS Dream11 Strikers
Undoubtedly the trickiest facet of our Dream 11 side, the stalwarts lining up this facet of the tie meant picking out three names was extremely dicey for us. We also had to keep in mind the price issue, one which refrained us from brining in some of our preferred.
One player for whom we have to shelve out a staggering amount though was Odisha’s striker Aridane Santana. With six goals, he’s leading the ranks of his side’s goal scorers to become a regulation pick for the outing.
Elsewhere, Mumbai City’s leading goal getter with the four goals, Amine Chermiti is being roped in by us from the opposition along with Mohamed Larbi.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Santana will captain us for the contest while Amine is our vice-captain.
