FCG vs MCFC Dream11 Prediction | Mumbai vs Goa ISL Semifinal Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News

A highly anticipated clash between Mumbai City and FC Goa is in the offing. The two teams will contest the second semifinal of this year’s Indian Super League. Mumbai City and FC Goa will go at it in a double-header for a place in the final. The Islanders will host the Gaurs in the first leg before heading to the home of FC Goa for the second leg.

A tale of two contrasting playing styles

It’s ice vs fire! FC Goa and Mumbai City found their way into the semifinals by playing two very contrasting styles of football. Evidently, both styles have been very effective. Mumbai City have a reputation for putting defence and organisation before fluidity and attacking intent. FC Goa, on the other hand, are as attacking a team as there has been in ISL in recent years.

The two opposite philosophies stem from two very different coaches who come from contrasting backgrounds. Mumbai City’s head coach Jorge Costa is a disciple of Jose Mourinho and won the Champions League at Inter with him. Understandably, Costa’s coaching methods have clear influences of former Manchester United manager. FC Goa’s head coach Sergio Lobera comes from Spain and his team has the DNA of a team inspired by the mighty Barcelona.

Lobera’s team is well-drilled to keep the ball for long periods and before opening up the opposition with a quality pass or dribble. It hardly comes as a shock that FC Goa have had the most passes per game (529) this season. Mumbai City, on the other hand, rank lowest in that department among the 10 teams which started the campaign. The contrast in the two approaches makes this clash one of the most appealing in recent times.
