The second leg of the semi-final tie between FC Goa and Mumbai City FC will take place on Tuesday, as the two teams battle for a spot in the final of the Indian Super League..
FC Goa had a cracking start in the first leg by winning it by a margin of 5-1. Furthermore, they managed to do so by being the better side away from home and that has helped them position themselves strongly. This franchise has been the benchmark when it comes to scoring goals, and coach Sergio Lobero has made sure that the defensive duties don’t go undermined as well. They are looking really strong, and are definitely now the favourites to win the ISL title.
Meanwhile, Mumbai City FC need to wake themselves up from sleep, as they have to be at their best in order to put up any sort of fight. They were thoroughly embarrassed by FC Goa and now have to a giant mountain to climb. Manager Jorge Costa was livid with his players, as the defence completely shut down, and they were a shadow of their former selves. The franchise finally made their way to the semi-final for the second time in the history, and have now once again let themselves down. It is time for them to fight, and for the honour of playing in this city as well for the work done throughout the season.
