As Indian Football League (IFL) is heading towards its business end, Mumbai City will take on the bottom-placed Hyderabad tonight at 7:30 PM in G. M. C. Balayogi Athletic Stadium. Chasing the top-four spot, Islanders have had mixed fortunes during the season. Mumbai City, under Jorge Costa, are currently ranked fifth on the points table with 5 wins out of 13 matches, earning total 19 points. They have been inconsistent in the recent games, but their latest victory (2-0) against defending champions Bengaluru FC at home has boosted their confidence.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad stands at the last (10th) spot of the points ladder with only one victory out of 13 matches. They have been on a ten-match winless run and have suffered four consecutive losses in the tournament. With only 5 points in hand, Hyderabad has showcased the most disappointing performance in this entire season. This match is crucial for Hyderabad in order to save their pride.
