Mumbai City will host NorthEast United on Friday (31st January,2020) in the IFL, as they look to get back into the top four of the IFL table. Mumbai is currently rooted at the fifth spot with 20 points, just one behind Odisha FC. Woefully out of form NorthEast United, on the other hand, are without a win in their last eight matches, and desperate for a turnaround in fortunes.
Mumbai City after performing decently in the initial stages of the tournament are having a slump in the decisive round. Mumbai have won only one match in their last four encounters. In their previous fixture, Mumbai City was held to a draw by a bottom ranked Hyderabad. Modou Sougou is back in form and Sourav Das, Chermiti are also the big goal-scoring threats. If Mumbai managed to score first, they would become almost impossible to break down.
NorthEast United, at the same time, are having an awful season. They are languishing at the ninth spot with just two wins in 12 matches. In their last game, the Highlanders were beaten by in-form ATK. The team will be looking to get some momentum in the tournament as the IFL reaches its business end.
