Team News

Carl McHugh will feature in the continued absence of Tiri from the ATK Mohun Bagan side. Joni Kauko and Lenny Rodrigues will hope to continue their good form along with the rest of the squad. The rest of the squad is expected to remain the same for the Mariners.

Mumbai City FC will hope Apuia, Ahmed Jahouh and Raynier Fernandes carry on their good form from the last couple of games. But what Des Buckingham would want is their defenders to buckle up and start performing, especially Mourtada Fall and Rahul Bheke. Their whole first team squad is fit.
