Meanwhile, Mumbai City is second on the points table and is unbeaten in its last seven matches. It has no major injury concerns and has also welcomed back left-back Mandar Rao Dessai into the fold after the New Year contest against Kerala Blasters.

Bengaluru will continue to miss the services of Ashique Kuruniyan, who could be out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to mend the multiple fractures he sustained to his face in the game against Odisha FC.


Cuadrat said Kuruniyan had gone back to Kerala to be with his family and no date had been set for his return. BFC midfielder Erik Paartalu has been suspended for tonight's match after receiving his fourth yellow card of the season.
