I-League 2016-17: Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai FC Match Preview
The defending champions are not in the best of forms this year as they are currently placed at the fifth spot on the table and have already fallen behind in the race for the title. Bengaluru FC have already lost a couple of matches and lately have managed to salvage a couple of draws to avoid embarrassing defeats. However, a couple of wins could easily bring their campaign back on track, and they would look to do exactly that when they face the challenge of Mumbai FC at the Cooperage Stadium in Mumbai.
Mumbai FC, on the other hand, will look forward to avoiding defeat at any cost as they are currently languishing at the 9th spot on the table just ahead of bottom-placed Churchill Brothers by 1 point. The Yellow Submarines managed to eke out a draw against Mohun Bagan, and the fans would love to see their favorite team putting up a similar sort of a performance against the mighty Bengaluru outfit.
In the previous encounter between Bengaluru FC and Mumbai FC, the team from the Karnataka had the last laugh. And they did so in style as the final score at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru read 3-0 in favor of the home side. But this time things are looking a bit different as it seems that Bengaluru FC have suddenly lost the spark while Mumbai FC are slowly gaining in confidence which are ominous signs for the teams on the top half of the table.
I-League 2016-17: Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai FC Team News
Injuries and suspensions have been a problem for the defending champions this season as they have been plagued by injuries which have eventually affected the stability of the side. However, good news has come in for the newly appointed manager of Bengaluru FC Alberto Roca in the form of availability of Juan Gonzalez. He missed the last two games due to suspension and will be ready to make a comeback to his defensive duties which will also provide the much-needed strength in defense that they have been lacking over the last few matches. But John Johnson still remains unavailable for selection and would be a real concern for the club from Karnataka.
Mumbai FC, on the other hand, have shown glimpses of making a comeback to their best in the match against Mohun Bagan where the defense stood firm to deny the likes of Jeje, Sony Norde and Katsumi Yusa. The addition of players like Densill Theobald, Djelaludin Sharityar, Alex Willian and Anderson da Silva along with some experienced Indian players has made the team look much stronger than their performances. Coach Santosh Kashyap will look forward to getting at least one point from this match and with no such injury concern in the team, it seems that there is going to be a real fight between these two teams when they come against each other tomorrow.
Bengaluru FC (probable line-up): Amrinder Singh, Juan Gonzalez, Fanai, Rino Anto, Keegan Pereira, Alwyn George, Eugeneson Lyngdoh, Malsawmzuala, Udanta Kumam, Sunil Chhetri and CK Vineeth
Mumbai FC (probable line-up): Laxmikant Kattimani, Sharityar, Pratik, Reagan Singh, Mehrajuddin Wadoo, Hitesh, Densill Theobald, Thoi Singh, Nikhil, Alex Willian Silva and Victorino Fernandez
Bengaluru FC vs Mumbai FC Match Prediction
On paper, Bengaluru FC are a much stronger side than the Mumbai outfit. But neither team is in best of the forms. Simply based on the current form, we predict that Mumbai FC will edge past Bengaluru FC on their home soil with a 1-0 victory. Also, the draw against Mohun Bagan (who will play DSK Shivajians tomorrow as well) provides their confidence with a real boost which might just provide them with the spark to force a result in their favor.
