It would be difficult to have a say on the winner in this battle of equals as the reward for a win would be the same for both sides, a top 4 position. While a draw will help Goa advance, a win for either sides might help them get through. Given Mumbai City’s high scoring win over Goa in their last game over Jamshedpur FC’s slender 1-0 win, Mumbai City FC are more likely to come out on top as winners.
