An unbeaten Hyderabad FC will take on a table-topper Mumbai City FC in Match 34 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco on Sunday.

Hyderabad, despite injuries to forward Joel Chianese and midfielder Luis Sastre, has performed well and has managed to comeback from a goal down to win against SC East Bengal. The return of striker Aridane Santana and midfielder Mohammad Yasir in that match will be big boost for Manuel Marquez's side.


Mumbai head coach Sergio Lobera seemed to have found his perfect combination with Vignesh Dakshinamurthy and Mohamed Rakip settling in as the full-backs and the two-pronged attack of Bartholomew Ogbeche and Adam Le Fondre finding ample support from Bipin Singh and Cy Goddard.
