ISL 2017, Match 34: Mumbai City FC vs Delhi Dynamos FC, Probable XI
Will Delhi Dynamos be able to break their 5-game losing streak tonight in Mumbai?
Mumbai City FC are all ready to welcome the bottom of the table side Delhi Dynamos FC in their 4th home game of the ISL 2017 at the Mumbai Football Arena. Historically, Mumbai have an upper hand over Delhi with 2 wins in comparison to just one by Delhi and three ended up being drawn. Interestingly, all three draws have been played in Mumbai.
Mumbai City FC seem to be more balanced and in form as they have lost just one out of their last 4 games. The Islanders have continued their good show at home from previous season winning two out of thier three home games so far and will surely aim to continue the same tonight.
On the other side, after winning their opening fixture, Delhi Dynamos are on a five-game losing streak which is the longest losing streak for Delhi in any season. More importantly, Delhi have also managed to find the back of the net just twice in last five games. They will need to bounce back strongly to stake their claim for a top spot alive.
Mumbai City FC
Mumbai City FC head coach Alexandre Guimaraes is quite happy with the efforts of his side and will be hoping to continue the similar way going forward. Despite Delhi’s poor form, he has asked his boys to not take them lightly as he believes that Delhi are going to try harder to break their losing streak.
With no injury concerns in the side, we are expecting Sehnaj, Wadoo and Rafa Jorda to replace Thiago Santos, Davinder and Sanju Pradhan in the starting 11. The Costa Rican coach is expected to field his side in the 3-2-4-1 formation to keep a perfect balance in attack and defence.
Mumbai City FC Probable Starting XI: Amrinder, Wadoo, Goian, Raju, Vieira, Sehnaj, E. Santos, Ruidas, Emana, Jorda, Balwant.
Delhi Dynamos FC
Delhi Dynamos are struggling to come out of the bottom of the league table after five back-to-back losses. They need to keep their hopes in the tournament alive and will aim to get back to winning ways soon. Their assistant coach Shakti Singh looked convinced with the efforts of his boys and the only missing thing according to him is the finishing touch.
With the pressure to win a game early, we are expecting Cichero, Uche, and Chhangte to make a comeback in place of Edu Moya, Rodrigues and Guyon Fernandez. He will look to continue his favourite 4-1-4-1 formation to use the flanks to the fullest.
Delhi Dynamos FC Probable Starting XI: Arnab, Kotal, Cichero, Pratik, Munmun, Chhangte, Romeo, Paulinho, Mirabaje, Lumu, Uche.
Mumbai City FC 2-0 Delhi Dynamos FC
