Indian Super League Matchday Fixtures 4th Feb

Mumbai City FC Vs Hyderabad FC

The Mumbai Football Arena will set the stage for the high-octane clash between Mumbai City FC and Hyderabad FC in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) on Saturday. The Islanders have a seven-point lead over the defending ISL champions at the top of the table with a game ahead, and will look to march further towards clinching the Hero ISL League Winners Shield without leaving it too late.

Mumbai City FC set a couple of new records last week after the 46th and 47th goals of the campaign. No other Hero ISL side has scored more goals during the league stage before. The come-from-behind win over Jamshedpur FC also saw the Islanders set a new unbeaten streak record of 16 games, surpassing the previous record held by ATK Mohun Bagan and FC Goa.

Des Buckingham’s men came close to losing a match for the first time this season against the Red Miners last week. However, two goals in the final ten minutes of the match in Jamshedpur added three more points to their prolific tally.

Lallianzuala Chhangte scored one and pocketed an assist for the other. The winger has now scored nine goals and registered five assists in 16 games. Mumbai City FC will be without key midfielder Ahmed Jahouh, who picked up his fourth yellow card of the season last week.

NorthEast United FC Vs Jamshedpur FC

NorthEast United FC will be looking for their second victory of the season when they take on Jamshedpur FC in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium on Saturday. A win can take the Highlanders within touching distance of the Red Miners, while the visitors could go level on points with East Bengal FC if they nab their third win of the season.

It has been a tough season for NorthEast United FC, as they’ve registered just one win and one draw out of 16 Hero ISL games. Last week, two quick-fire goals gave Kerala Blasters FC a 2-0 win against the Highlanders.

Wilmar Gil was unavailable last week as he was serving a suspension. The Colombian will be back and available to start the game against Jamshedpur FC, giving head coach Vincenzo Annese a much-needed boost.

However, to include Gil in the starting XI, Annese will have to bench one of the other attacking foreign players, one of whom is new signing Joseba Beitia. The Italian coach could likely bench either Romain Philippoteaux or Kule Mbombo to bring his striker back into the lineup.
