NorthEast United vs Mumbai City FC will be the second fixture of the Indian Super League season. With the aim of securing their maiden title in ISL 2020-21, both the teams will kick-off at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Goa, on Saturday.
The ISL stats, however, reveal a favourite. In the NorthEast United vs Mumbai City head-to-head, it’s the team from Mumbai that has the edge with seven wins from 12 encounters while NorthEast United have won four times.
If history was not enough, Mumbai City FC’s mind-boggling summer shopping has pretty much ensured that they remain the outright favourites to win the clash on Saturday. You can bet on a Mumbai City FC win at 1.58.
Mumbai City FC have won three of their last five matches with NorthEast United with the scorelines reading 1-0, 1-0 and 2-0. The Highlanders, on the other hand, have had a solitary 2-0 win against MCFC in the same period. Saturday’s clash is unlikely to see both the teams scoring and one can bet on the same at 2.15.
Whether it be MCFC’s 5-1 domination of NEUFC in 2015 or the crunching 3-2 clash in 2018, the NorthEast United vs Mumbai City FC fixture has always guaranteed goals. While the Islanders have scored 17 times in 12 encounters, the Highlanders have netted in 12.
With the fixture seeing an average of 2.42 goals per game, punters can bet on Saturday’s clash to see two-three goals at 2.02.
With only two of the 12 NEUFC vs MCFC matches ending in a draw, Indian football fans will expect Saturday’s match to be a decisive one after 90 minutes. You can bet on the same at 1.24.
With Mumbai City FC having both Adam Le Fondre and Hugo Boumous up top following revered coach Sergio Lobera’s offensive tactics, the Islanders will be hoping to announce their arrival in a supreme fashion. One can bet on Mumbai city FC to win by a three-goal margin at 4.40.
Not only a seamless scoring form but Mumbai City FC have managed to keep NorthEast United goal-scorers at bay on most occasions. In their seven wins, MCFC have managed to keep five clean sheets and one can bet to see the same on Saturday at 2.46.
