Match Preview: Mumbai City vs East Bengal
The seventh season of the Indian Football League 2020-21 will witness a thrilling clash when Mumbai City takes on the new East Bengal at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim behind closed doors.
Mumbai City recovered after their defeat in the IFL’s clash against Northeast and fought hard to score all three points against Goa.
Mumbai recalled their talisman midfielder Ahmed Jauh when he received a red card in the game against the Highlanders, however, his return would certainly boost the side’s midfield.
East Bengal, on the other hand, got into this clash after a crushing loss against rivals Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby for the first time in the IFL. Roy Krishna and Manveer Singh went 2-0 against the Mariners with scoring. East Bengal will know that anything other than victory in this game will put more pressure on the team.
