Mumbai City FC have been unstoppable in the Indian Super League so far. The Islanders have managed to record eight wins in 10 games and with 25 points are sitting on top of the table.
So when coach Sergio Lobera's side takes on Hyderabad FC at the GMC Stadium, Bambolim, on Saturday, more improvement in performance will be on his agenda. (More Football News)
The Islanders have scored in each of their last nine games wherein they also remained unbeaten. During this run, Mumbai scored (17 goals) in each of their last 9 matches. Their defence has also been great. They haven’t conceded any goals against the top three teams in the league. And Lobera credited his players, who have given collective performances so far.
In their previous encounter, Mumbai walked away victorious with a 2-0 win. But Lobera said that this time it will be a difficult game for his side. Hyderabad's Indian contingent has been impressive in ISL-7 and that's one reason why the club is still in the top half despite their foreign players being inconsistent.
Hyderabad coach Manuel Marquez admitted Mumbai was the stronger team and predicted Lobera’s side will end up as champions of the normal season.
Marquez said that despite the odds being against them, his team would stick to their style of football.
