Mumbai eye revenge against BFC

Beaten and bruised in their last home game, Mumbai City FC will look to defeat Bengaluru FC when the two sides clash here on Thursday in an Indian Super League (ISL) encounter.

A win on their home turf will ease pressure on Mumbai, currently placed fifth with four wins in 10 games.

Also, the home side will be keen to seek revenge as they had suffered a 0-2 defeat to Bengaluru in Bengaluru on November 19.

The home team, looking to bounce back from their 0-1 defeat against Kerala Blasters, will face a tough challenge from the Bengaluru boys, led by the inspirational Sunil Chhetri.

Bengaluru are  placed second with six wins from 10 matches. The visitors had lost to Delhi Dynamos 2-0 in their last game and would look to come back to winning ways.

But Mumbai's defence is solid with a back-line comprising Gerson Vieira and Lucian Goian, backed by an alert custodian in Amrinder Singh.

For the home side, striker Balwant Singh, Brazilian Everton Santos, highly-impressive attacking mid-fielders Brazilian Thiago Santos and Cameroonian Achille Emana have the ability to breach any defence.

In the last couple of games, Mumbai missed many opportunities to score and they will have to pull up their socks at their citadel to clinch a win.
