Indian Super League (ISL)
When: December 06, 07:30 PM, IST
Where: Mumbai Football Arena
CFC vs MCFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Mumbai City FC have a golden chance to do the double over the reigning Indian Super League champions Chennaiyin FC at home Mumbai Football Arena, in Mumbai, on Thursday evening (IST).
Mumbai City FC:
Mumbai City continued their fine form intact after beating Delhi Dynamos 4-2 in a come-from-behind victory at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi.
That win sums up the Islanders’ steep rise this season and they look very much part of the group which could sustain a top-4 position in the table.
As things stand, Mumbai are on 4th with 17 points from the nine game. That’s the half of the season, and they are just five points away from matching their points tally of the 2017-18 campaign.
Jorge Costa’s men are in driving seat to qualify for the playoffs and anything less than that will be a total disaster.
Jamshedpur are a point behind them at 5th, but the Men of Steel have played two games more than Mumbai, and that’s a significant advantage in a league which has only 18 regular season games.
For Chennaiyin FC, everything is falling like a house of cards at the moment. The attack is not good enough to outscore the opponent while the defence can’t sustain the pressure, and no wonder the team has the 2nd worst defensive record.
The season started with three straight losses and it was clear that the reigning champions will have to play out of their skins to have any chance of defending their title.
But defending the ISL crown is like ‘fool’s gold’ this season as even qualifying for the playoffs or to finish outside the bottom three will take some herculean efforts for the Marina Arena side.
As things stand, John Gregory’s men are 8th with 5 points from first 10 games, a huge 12 points away from the top-4. Mathematically, it’s still possible to get into the playoff position but they need some of the top performing teams to suddenly go South.

CFC vs MCFC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Mumbai are a tough nut to crack. They have kept five clean sheets in the last seven games.
Goian and Issoko are two stalwarts who have helped in that regard, with the latter even chipping in with the goals as well.
Machado and Sougou will definitely be playing just head of the defensive midfielders. Both the players can come up with a majestic pass which would open up any defence in the ISL.
While Bastos is somebody who embodies the team as a whole, his work rate is immense. Jeje meanwhile may be struggling to put the ball into the net, but his general contribution has been good.
The attack remains the same here. You can, however, choose between Salom or Jeje, but we have gone with the latter. Bastos remains.
We have selected one extra midfielder here – Orlandi replacing Thoi, while M Singh coming in as the extra man in the middle.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
At this moment, Chennaiyin are well short on everything that a good football team shows on the football field. A home win is or call.
Prediction 2-0 (at least)
