  • Mumbai FC XI: Sawant, Costa, Rodrigues, Climax, Yakubu, Chakraborty, Kamaljeet, Pradeep, Bheke, Sehnaj, Ezeh
  • Shillong Lajong XI: Vinay, Passah, Son, Milan, Glen, Subhash, Matsugae, Haokip, Gurung, Tlang, Fanai
  • On the other hand, Mumbai FC have had a horrible campaign in the tournament so far, having lost both their group league matches.
  • The northeastern side will hence have to score a minimum of five goals in order to stand a chance to progress.
  • Lajong’s task is cut out straight as they need to win against Mumbai FC and hope that Salgaocar FC down Mohun Bagan as well. In that case, three teams would end up with six points each rendering the head-to-head results pointless with the goal difference coming into play.
  • After thrashing Salgaocar 4-0 in the opening encounter, the north eastern side have been handed a 0-6 humiliation by Mohun Bagan in the last match
  • Thangboi Singto's men will be out to bag all three points but will have to be dependent on Mohun Bagan's performance for sealing a semi-final berth
