Mumbai City Seek To Maintain Winning Streak Against ATK

Football   |   January 1, 2020



India Super League side, Mumbai City, will want to continue from where they stopped last year when they host ATK on Saturday at the D. Y. Patil Stadium.

Mumbai has been in good form winning the last three games played and are unbeaten in six overall.

The team beat Bengaluru 3-2 away from home, Jamshedpur 2-1 on the 19th of December while they were able to get past Hyderabad 2-1 at home on Sunday.

The team sits in fourth, with 16 points from 10 games having scored and conceded 17 goals respectively.

However, the team’s home form will be of major concern as they have only won 1 and drawn one out of the last seven home games played by the side.

J. Costa’s men had Modou Sougou’s brace to appreciate in their last game against Hyderabad despite having Sarthak Golui sent off and automatically have him out of the next game on Saturday.

Mumbai city’s opponents, ATK, has been so far formidable away from home losing just once (2-1 loss to Goa FC) in 5 away games and drawing two with two wins also.

ATK sits two points above Mumbai, with 18 points and is just 3 points from table-topping Goa Fc. The team has scored 19 goals and conceded nine goals in total.

The Habas A. Led team beat Bengaluru 1-0 at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkota in the last game, but the team has not beaten Mumbai City since 2017, losing two and winning the other two.

However, this time around they could actually get a win with the form of their top Striker and league current top scorer, Krishna Roy who has scored eight goals in ten games.

Amine Chemiti is the Mumbai City Striker that the Kolkota side has to be scared of after scoring four goals so far this season in the ISL.
