The MCFC vs NEUFC Match Preview

One of ISL’s most intriguing rivalry resumes as Mumbai City head to Guwahati to play against North East United FC on Friday. Both sides are pretty much evenly matched this season and that calls up for an interesting fixture.

Barring their horrific performance against FC Goa, which they ended up losing 0-5, Mumbai City FC have been impressive with whatever they’ve done this season. Be it their attack or their rock solid defence, that has managed to keep 4 clean sheets in 6 games, they’ve managed to keep themselves ahead of their opponents. Their defeat against FC Goa though exposed the fact that this defence too is vulnerable and can be torn apart with the right tactics.

North East United FC are yet to taste a defeat this season and have managed two draws and three wins from their five games so far. They’ve not been than strong defensively as they’ve been happy to find their strength in their rampant attack. Defensive fragility will have to be checked though if when they host Mumbai as attack won’t be a very good option against Mumbai’s solid defence.

Players to look out for

  • Modou Sougou

The heart of Mumbai’s attack, Sougou is expected to play a crucial role given NEUFC’s defensive fragility. Not at any goal scoring spree as yet but North East United will be aware of the threat this man poses to any defence.

  • Rowllin Borges

A natural playmaker, Borges has been driving the North East Attack from the centre. His efficient passes will be crucial if North East Unites are to breach Mumbai’s defence.
