Mumbai FC face uphill task against Mohun Bagan

I-League football laggards Mumbai FC face a formidable task to keep table toppers Mohun Bagan at bay when the two teams clash in a 20th round encounter at the Cooperage football ground today.

When the two teams met previously in Kolkata in January, Bagan ran out 3-1 winners with a twin strike from Katsumi Yusa interspersed with another successful effort from Sony Horde burying the visiting team’s hopes.

This time around MFC, without their coach Khalid Jamil to guide them from the bench as he will be serving the last of his four-game ban, would rely on their home advantage and vociferous crowd support to stop Bagan.

Bagan’s Japanese midfielder Yusa, who has scored six goals from 14 appearances and Haitian striker Norde, who has accounted for 7 from 13 games, are the major threats.
