In the next fixture of Indian Super League, 2nd placed FC Pune City is locking horns with 7th placed Mumbai City FC on Mumbai’s home turf at 5:30 PM (IST) on February 11th. This is by all means would be a nail biting contest since both the teams know the importance of winning this fixture of the game. For the home team, it would be a tough match because they haven’t won a match in their last three games and for the away team, this match’s points would mean concreting their position in the playoff.

Mumbai City FC have suffered three consecutive defeats at the Mumbai Football Arena and coach Alexandre Guimaraes is under massive pressure to get them to winning ways this weekend.
The cause of concern for Mumbai has been their full-backs with none being able to do a decent job. Opposition teams expose their frailties in wide areas.
FC Pune City come into the tie on the back of a slender 1-0 win over North East United. It took Marcelinho’s brilliance in the end which won them three crucial points as Pune are among the favourites to qualify to the play-offs for the very first time.
Our bet is on the away team for this game.
