Table-topper Mumbai City FC and top-four hopeful FC Goa will square off in a 2020-21 Indian Super League encounter at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim on Monday.
Sergio Lobera's Islanders had defeated Juan Ferrando-managed Gaurs 1-0 in the reverse fixture of the season, thanks mainly to a second half stoppage-time penalty from Adam le Fondre.
Coming off a 2-1 victory over Kerala Blasters FC in its previous game, MCFC will be looking to extend its lead at the top of the ISL standings to six points with a win over FCG. Lobera currently has a fully fit squad to choose a playing XI from.
Meanwhile, Goa needs at least a point against Mumbai to get back into the playoffs spot. Ferrando will have his captain Edu Bedia back for his team's next outing after he served out a one-match suspension. However, Brandon Fernandes will miss out with injury.
Here's how the two teams could line-up during their next encounter.
Mumbai City FC predicted XI (4-2-3-1)
Amrinder Singh; Amey Ranawade, Mourtada Fall, Hernan Santana, Mandar Rao Dessai; Ahmed Jahouh, Rowllin Borges; Raynier Fernandes, Hugo Boumous, Bipin Singh; Adam le Fondre.
