NorthEast United FC to host Mumbai City FC in ISL match tomorrow

Guwahati, Nov 8 (UNI) NorthEast United FC will host Mumbai City FC in a
2018-19 Indian Super League (ISL) game at the Indira Gandhi Athletic
Stadium here on Friday evening.
Only one point separates third-placed NorthEast United and fifth-placed Mumbai
City, though the hosts have a game in hand. The Highlanders are heading into the
fixture with 11 points from five matches while the visitors have notched 10 points
from six games.
NorthEast United have had a good start to the season under Eelco Schattorie.
The combination of Bartholomew Ogbeche and Fernando Gallego in NorthEast's
attack will pose a serious challenge for opposition's defenders.
Ogbeche leads the goalscoring chart alongside FC Goa's Ferran Corominas,
having scored six goals from five matches. Gallego is top of the assist chart with
four assists from five games.
While Schattorie's men have a perfect away record with three wins out of three,
they are yet to pick up a win at home. An inconsistent Mumbai side will look to
make full use of this as Jorge Costa looks to make a statement of intent.
“They (NorthEast United) had a good start to the season. For the last two-to-three
days I was watching NorthEast United and they are very good. In terms of
organisation during the 90 minutes, they are really good. This means that we have a
very difficult job, but tomorrow it’s 11 against 11 on the field. We can also do very
good things. Our wish is to go back home with the three points,” expressed Costa.
After a 5-0 hammering at the hands of FC Goa, Mumbai have fought back into
contention with back-to-back wins against Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC.
Moudou Sougou's form in front of goal is encouraging for Costa against
NorthEast's defence that has looked solid at the back. Grgic and co. have
conceded only six goals, which is also the number of goals scored by Mumbai
City so far this season.
But Schattorie will miss the services of Gurwinder Singh in defence after he
picked up an injury. However, the Dutchman is not too worried.
“We have good players up front and we'll try to score one more goal than the
opponent. Hopefully, that covers our defence. Having said that, I think there were
comments that we had a shaky defence but at this moment, we have conceded
the least amount of goals after Bengaluru FC. We are pretty well organized and
hopefully we can continue that against Mumbai,” said Schattorie.
