Mumbai City FC is going to host Kerala Blasters FC, who are riding high on confidence after defeating Delhi Dynamos, on Sunday at the Mumbai Football Arena.
For the home team, a victory would get them a place in the top four teams of Indian Super League and for the away team they would also be a contender for the top four teams if they win on Sunday.
Alexandre Guimaraes’ men have been in good form in their home matches and they would look to blunt the attack of Kerala Blasters but if the same sensational hat-trick of Hume against Delhi Dynamos, could be repeated against Mumbai City then it would be going to be spectacular.
Mumbai City will start the favourites for this clash but they will be wary of the Tuskers who can certainly pull off an upset.

Mumbai City is going to start this match as favourites because not only they are the home team but also the better team if we go by the statistics in Indian Super League. Mumbai is sitting in the middle of the points table in the middle of this season and Kerala Blasters are two ranks below with 11 points salvaged from the nine matches they have played so far. Our bet is on Mumbai City FC for this fixture.
