NEUFC Vs MCFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Ramped up Mumbai look to launch their first serious challenge for the ISL trophy.
Despite their management team being at the helm of spearheading the foray of the Indian Super League into the Indian footballing fraternity, Mumbai City have never really clicked as a team in the league. The side is yet to win the glistening title in six seasons, sorry state of affairs the side will be hungry to overturn in ISL 7.
If the transfer activity at the club is anything to go by, Mumbai City are going to come out hammer and tongs this season. The club has roped in 19 fresh names for the 2020-21 season of the showpiece league including handing over reigns of the club to manager Lobera.
“It is very important to play attacking football. Obviously, we need balance. In football, it’s not possible only to attack, you need balance between attack and defence,” Lobera had said in the build up to the encounter.
NEUFC Vs MCFC Fantasy Probable Winner
While Mumbai will need time for all their new entrants to move in unison and click together, today’s fixture won’t be impacted by that. They are up against a torrid unit, one which finished in 9th place this season and is bound to be a mere sitting duck infront of the Mumbai based unit.

Given the carnage Mumbai City are set to unleash his way, Subhasish should manage to accrue some save points to see him be our pick as the shot stopper for the fixture.
Under the tutelage of Lobera, the first thing Mumbai are bound to have done in their preparations for the new season is worked upon the defensive side of their game. The club is set to emerge as a defensive powerhouse this season, one which will unleash its brunt today on a side which scored a measly 16 goals in 18 ties last season.
A gripping defensive display awaits us from Mumbai today to see us opt for the services of Mandar Rao Dessai, Mourtada Fall and Sarthak.
For all the bevy of new signings to have graced the land of Mumbai’s setup this season, Hugo Boumous has remained a constant at the club. He was a quiessential part of the club’s puzzle last season, a player whose nitty gritties in both attack and defence saw Mumbai sit on the anvil of a top 4 spot.
Rowllin Borges who helped himself to the two goals and two assists in the same season will link up with him for today. The opposition on the other hand see us opt for the tenacious Khassa Camara and Rochharzela, two players capable of closing out the ball and disrupting attacking plays.
For all of their new picks, striker Bartholomew Ogbeche might just be the best bit of business Mumbai have conducted. The league’s top scorer last term, he accrued a staggering 15 goals, form he’ll be eager to emulate for his new employers.
Adam Le Fondre is going to partner up with him whilst the electric and gripping Luis Machado from the opposition will close out our picks for the contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ogbeche’s sprawling 15 goals see us opt for him as the day’s captain while Boumous is the vice-captain.
Subhasish, Sarthak, Dessai, Fall, Boumos, Camara, Rochharzela, Borges, Fondre, Ogbeche, Machado
