Match 87 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Mumbai City FC take on FC Goa at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Goa, on Monday evening.
Mumbai City FC will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the ISL table when they take on FC Goa. The Islanders narrowly beat Kerala Blasters FC in their last outing, and will be hoping to do the league double over the Gaurs this season.
Sergio Lobera will be hoping his side can get the better of a team that hasn't been the most consistent throughout the campaign. Mumbai City, on the other hand, are one of the top-scoring sides in the league with 22 goals, and have only conceded eight goals so far. Goa, however, have struggled to find their best form, despite being on an eight-match unbeaten run. They have drawn their last four matches, and will be looking to get the better of their top-four rivals.

We predict a 2-1 win for Mumbai City FC.
