ISL 2020-21 Match Prediction
FC Goa begins the Juan Ferrando era and will clash against Mumbai City FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, in their second fixture. This is the 6th match of Indian Super League 2020-21 on 25th November. In these initial games of this season, both teams will start the campaign on a positive note and carry the momentum throughout the season.
Head to head; these two teams have played fourteen matches in the history of ISL. FC Goa leads the tally with seven wins, three more than the total of three wins registered by Mumbai City FC. The remaining three matches have resulted in a tie. Our ISL Match Prediction claims, FC Goa, under coach Juan Ferrando, will win this season’s sixth match against Mumbai City FC.
FC Goa will win this game.
FC Goa lost in the ISL semifinals last year to Chennaiyin FC. And started this year’s campaign with a tied game with FC Bengaluru; Spanish striker Igor Angulo’s double strike scripted FC Goa’s spectacular comeback as they held Bengaluru FC to a 2-2 draw in their first encounter, on Sunday. FC Goa has undergone an overhaul under new coach Juan Ferrando who has revamped the squad.
It wasn’t until the 45th minute that Goa got their first shot on goal. Goa’s defense was caught napping as a free kick by Kuruniyan of FC Bengaluru was nodded on by Brown towards Erik Paartalu. Goa made two attacking substitutions around the hour mark, bringing on Brandon Fernandes and Alberto Noguera, and soon found their way back into the contest with two goals from Angulo in the space of three minutes. Their experience of Edu Bedia in the midfield can prove to be highly effective.
FC Goa was the league’s top goal-scorers last season, and they will want to repeat history. FC Goa promises not to compromise on the style and ethos that former coach Lobera had installed at the club. With Igor Angulo leading the line, he is likely to have Len Doungel and Jorge Ortiz beside him, with Brandon Fernandes probably positioning in as the no.10.
Mumbai City FC, on the other hand, did not have the ideal start to their crusade. They lost an unfortunate game against NorthEast United FC. Kwesi Appiah of NorthEast United scored from the spot – penalty. A red card and a penalty twisted a game that Mumbai was controlling, above that, and offered NorthEast United FC a winning start at the Tilak Maidan stadium. The Islanders were immaculate and proactive for extended spells, though they were incapable of finding a cutting edge.
Mumbai City FC has also bound in impressive newcomers like Cy Goddard, Adam le Fondre, and Hernan Santana. With such giant names in the team, City will be a solid side. Sergio Lobera’s Mumbai City FC will be eager to win in their second game. The Spaniard will have the entire roster at his clearance as Mumbai City FC look at perchance the best season in their short club history.
