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.
