Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa Live Football Score, Semi-Final 2 - 1st Leg.
Mumbai City do not have any injury or suspension which gives Jorge Costa an entire squad to choose his best eleven from. Modou Sougou and Rafael Bastos up top remain key members as far as goal scoring is concerned. If the duo get going we could see Mumbai dominating the Gaurs at home. Anwar Ali and Lucian Goian make up for an experienced pairing at the back although Ali has lost a bit of pace which he makes up with his brilliant reading of the game. Paulo Machado in midfield will be the aggressor on the ball hoping to drive his team forward.
Zaid Krouch is a doubt for the visitors with a muscle injury and the Moroccan midfielder will need to undergo a late fitness test to prove his fitness. Ferran Corominas is a goal machine who can single-handedly destroy any opposition. It is because of players like him that Goa regularly features in the top goalscoring charts. Edu Bedia and Jackichand Singh are difficult to deal with considering their pace and trickery while Lenny Rodrigues in the sweeper role is an asset too for Goa.
