Mumbai City can return to the top of the Indian Super League table with victory over struggling Odisha on Sunday. The sides have had constrasting starts to the season, but will that continue or will we see an upset at GMC Stadium.
Mumbai City Form
Mumbai City have kickstarted their season with back-to-back victories, and a third straight win on Sunday will send Sergio Lobera's side top.
Mumbai started the new season with a 1-0 defeat to NorthEast United in their opening game. A 49th minute penalty from Kwesi Appiah proved to be the difference between the sides.
Mumbai ended a three-game losing run with a 1-0 victory over 10-man Goa thanks to a 95th minute penalty from Adam Le Fondre.
They were much more clinical in a 3-0 win over East Bengal in their latest match. Two goals from Le Fondre, one of them from the penalty spot, and a goal from Hernan sealed the victory over the ISL newcomers.
Mumbai City Team News
Adam Le Fondre will be the key man for Mumbai again after three goals in his last two games. That means Nigerian striker Bartholomew Ogbeche against looks set to be on the bench.
Sergio Lobera looks likely to name an unchanged side with Japanese winger Cy Goodard also set for a bit-part role.
Odisha were left heartbroken after conceding in the 95th minute in a 1-0 defeat to champions ATK Mohun Bagan.
It was a second defeat in three games for winless Odisha, who also lost their opening game of coach Stuart Baxter's reign 1-0 to Hyderabad.
Sandwiched in between was a 2-2 draw with Jamshedpur. Odisha trailed 2-0 midway through the second-half before a Diego Mauricio double - including a 93rd minute equaliser - earned a point against 10-man Jamshedpur.
Odisha Team News
Diego Mauricio and Marcelinho were paired in attack against ATK Mohun Bagan, but Manuel Onwu could return to the forward line.
