The second semi-final of Indian Super League will take place between FC Goa and Mumbai City FC as the first leg is played on Saturday.
FC Goa has been the side in the ISL who love scoring goals. They were the ones who set a new bar of what is possible and have been excellent in defence as well. If their patchy form is ignored, they truly are the best team in the league, and have to focus on being at their absolute top form, in these games or else, once again will be ousted in the semi-finals. It will be interesting to see how does coach Sergio Lobera deploys his players and how fired up they are to prove their worth.
Meanwhile, Mumbai City FC are making their second appearance in the playoffs in the Indian Super League, and they will be looking to make the most of this opportunity. The team has done exceptionally well, and have finally delivered on the potential this squad has. Plaudits have to go down the way of manager Jorge Costa, as he has transformed this team into a legitimate contender. They will be looking to finish what he started, and follow the gameplan in the first leg, by taking advantage of playing at home as well.
This match is to be played at Mumbai Football Arena, Mumbai, India. The ground has a capacity of 55,000.
