Sporting Clube de Goa currently have 34 points in their kitty and need a win from their last match to secure a sixth place finish in this season's I-League, with only a possible challenge of Salgaocar FC for the sixth spot.

Mumbai FC (31) will also want to alter their standing on the table at the end of the match, who would as well be hoping for Salgaocar FC to lose their last match on Sunday, in order to finish sixth in their campaign.

Both the home side's head coach Oscar Bruzon Barreras and the away team's gaffer Khalid Jamil changed the fortunes of their respective sides after a somewhat undesirable start in the league.


Sporting Clube de Goa: The Flaming Oranje will be without defenders Joyner Lourenco and Samananda Singh who are both injured.

Mumbai FC: Abhishek Yadav is suspended due to the player picking four yellow cards, while Haroon Amiri is ruled out injured.

  • Both Sporting Clube de Goa and Mumbai FC have scored 34 times in this season's I-League, but the former have conceded a goal less. 
  • Conceding at home will however be the concern for Sporting Clube de Goa, who have allowed twice as many goals scored (8) so far.
  • Although Mumbai FC have managed to score 16 goals playing away, they have allowed in 28 goals.
