MCFC vs ODS Dream11 : Mumbai strive to entertain their rapturous home support when they take on a floundering Odisha side today.
They decided to shift their home base and opt for a complete overhaul of the side as Delhi Dynamos converted to Odisha for the ongoing edition of the Indian Super League but it has done nothing to change the side’s fortunes on the field. Sitting in 9th place in the points tally, Odisha find themselves languishing in the dearth of the league, a side who find themselves winless after their opening two matches.
It’s not just the fact that the side have failed to register a win in the league but rather the way in which they have lost their matches which has become a cause of concern for the side. They have gone onto concede late goals in both their matches, shipping in goals in the final 10 minutes on both the occasions. There has also been a clear lack of discipline in the side with the team being reduced to 10 men in both their previous couple of matches, adding to the ever piling issues the side need to address ahead of today’s impending encounter.
“We didn’t get the result. The first game we may have some passing inaccuracy. But in the second game, I think we dominated the game. We conceded due to small mistakes, but we controlled the game and created a lot of chances. I think the team is doing well and we don’t deserve to get zero points. I am confident that the team will do well tomorrow,” Odisha’s coach Gombau said.
It’s a peril which Mumbai will be looking to extract the most out of when the two sides meet today as the hosts look to embark on a winning spree, one which takes them into the top 4 of the league standings. They have registered the one win and one draw apiece from their opening two matches, conceding only the one goal in those matches, a defence which will buoy the side ahead of this clash.

MCFC vs ODS Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With the two cleansheets in the league from their opening two set of matches, it was only rightful of us to get in the shot stopper from the home side, Arminder Singh for this impending clash.
MCFC vs ODS Dream11 Defenders
Despite enduring a horrid time in defence, we found it safe to move ahead with the three defenders from Odisha in the form of Shubham Sarangi, Rana Gharami and Carlos Javier. The side’s defence has wavered and waned, seeing the side go on a downward spiral and this looks set to be another match where the side will be tested with vigour and rampantly, a discourse which should see these three get in good tackle and block points for us from this one.
MCFC vs ODS Dream11 Midfielders
This match will be a closely fought affair, a fixture which looks set to be a competitive match where the margins of a win will be extremely bare. While Mumbai are yet to be defeated in the league, the side have looked far from convincing in their attacking sorties, managing to craft together just the one goal with apart from sporadic bursts of attacking plays, the side managing to do little attacking wise.
It sees us get in Paola Machado and Raynier Fernandes from the side, two players who have looked to wrench free of this impasse for the side while from the visiting side we are opting for the two players as well. We begin with their leading goal scorer with the one goal in two matches, Xisco Hernandez with Diawandou Diagne giving him adequate company for this one.
MCFC vs ODS Dream11 Strikers
While Mumbai have made from drab viewing up the park, they are up against a side today who have leaded in four goals in two matches with their defensive astuteness vanishing in smoke. It’s something which could see Mumbai’s quest of piling on the goals come to an end, seeing us move in for the duo of Serge Kevyn and Diego Carlos from the side while from the opposition we are opting for Adriane Santana.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Paolo is our captain for this fixture while Arminder is being made the vice-captain.
