Mumbai City take on Chennaiyin on Saturday in ISL 2022/23 as the season moves ahead. Mumbai City come into this game as the favourites.

Kick-off : 5:30 PM IST

Venue : Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai

Mumbai City are having a good season and remain the only unbeaten team of the tournament. They will look to continue the winning run. They are currently 2nd in the points table after 10 games with 24 points. The goal difference is a +20.

The Islanders defending have been up to the mark and they will be expecting more from their fullbacks. On the attacking front they have been destroying teams and will continue the exploitation.

In the reverse fixture back last month Mumbai City thrashed Chennaiyin 6-2. Manager Des Buckingham will aim for solidarity in a 4-3-3 formation.

On the other hand, Chennaiyin themselves are having an ok season and will look for good performances. They are currently 7th in the points table after 10 games with 14 points. The goal difference is a – 1.

The Marina Machans defence have shown solidity at times and they must be positive in their approach. Attack wise they have been scoring and will need more.

Manager Thomas Brdaric might go  with a 4-2-3-1 on Saturday.

Team news and possible lineups

Nasser El Khayati is injured for Chennaiyin and won’t be available.

As for MCFC, they have Amey Ranawade out injured.

Mumbai City FC XI : Lachenpa, Bheke, Griffiths, Mehtab Singh, M. Dessai, L. Ralte, A. Jahouh, L. Chhangte, Stewart, B. Singh, J. Diaz.

Chennaiyin XI : Majumder, Ajith Kumar, Diagne, Hakhamaneshi, Sangwan, Duker, Thapa, Vanspaul, Prasanth K, Sliskovic, Barretto.


I think Mumbai will be confident coming into this one and they will look to win. Although I expect a stalemate here maybe 1-1.
