ATK Mohun Bagan will battle it out against Mumbai City for top honours in a top-of-the-table clash on Monday evening. The Mariners trail Sergio Lobera's side by two points and will be looking to get the better of the Islanders. Mumbai City FC are unbeaten in their last eight games, but they are up against a strong defence that has not conceded a goal in their last four matches.
ATK Mohun Bagan have maintained their own unbeaten streak of five matches, with three wins and two draws. However, the Islanders have the best attack in the league, with 16 goals to their name scored by no less than eight different goalscorers. Lobera's side have scored 10 of their 16 goals in the first half, while the Mariners have netted just one of their 10 goals in the opening 45 minutes.
