Kolkata: Atletico de Kolkata and Mumbai City FC will look for the crucial early advantage as they battle for a place in Indian Super League final at Rabindra Sarobar Stadium here today.
And Mumbai captain Diego Forlan insists past results and form will count for nothing as the two teams square up for first-leg semi-final battle but neither team will want to hand over the advantage to the other team. Scoring first will be the key as in eight out of 14 matches when Mumbai have scored first, they have never lost, winning six of them.
"It doesn’t matter what happened in the league, a new tournament will begin in semis. We did well to finish on top, that will give us confidence. We have arrived at this crucial stage in a good position. We have to keep working hard," Forlan said.
