#1 January 27: Mumbai City FC v Bengaluru FCIt's the table toppers against their closest competitors at the Mumbai Football Arena. The pair played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture, with Bengaluru failing to capitalise on the man advantage in the second half
#3 February 1: Mumbai City FC v FC GoaWhen the two teams met in October, Goa thrashed Mumbai 5-0. Goals from Ferran Corominas, Edu Bedia, Jackichand Singh and a brace from Miguel Palanca completely dismatled the Islanders. However, Jorge Costa's men have not suffered a single defeat ever since. Will they exact revenge and complete the full circle on the first of February?
#4 February 3: ATK v Jamshedpur FCThis game can be crucial in determining ATK's chances of making it to the play-offs, as they take on a direct rival. Steve Coppell will be up against his former team, hoping that his team gets a better result than the 1-1 draw from the reverse fixture.
#5 February 6: Bengaluru FC v Kerala Blasters FC
It probably doesn't get bigger than this when the war between the fan-bases are concerned. Kerala Blasters might find themselves in the bottom half of the table, with extremely slim chances of making it to the play-offs. But this game is much more than the three points, as both teams will be looking to achieve bragging rights.
In the reverse fixture, Bengaluru registered a 2-1 win, but the match was marred by some questionable refereeing.
#6 February 8: Jamshedpur FC v Mumbai City FC
Any fixture that involves teams from the top half of the table is vital as we enter the business end of the tournament. The pressure on Jamshedpur to step into the top four only makes them more dangerous as they take on a defensively sound Mumbai team.
The Men of Steel recorded a 2-0 victory in the first leg and will be hoping to replicate that result.
#7 February 10: FC Pune City v ATK
Pune started extremely slow in this edition of the Indian Super League (ISL) and registered their first win late in November. However, they are now on a two-game winning run. If they keep up the momentum, Pune City can clinch some results that could impact the top-four race.
The match against ATK could well be one such fixture.
#8 February 13: Mumbai City v NorthEast United FC
In yet another top-half clash, the Mariners will be hosting the Highlanders. This game could tune the shape of the table, heading into the final stages of the tournament. This can potentially serve as a rehearsal for one of the play-offs too, should things go according to script.
NorthEast United could not find an answer to Arnold Issoko's early goal in the reverse fixture.
#9 February 15: Kerala Blasters FC v Chennaiyin FC
Looking at the league table, this game might not seem to be an enticing affair. It's possible that both Kerala Blasters and defending Champions Chennaiyin are mathematically out of the top four race before this fixture is played. However, there is pride to play for, in this South Indian Derby and both teams will be looking to end their season on a high.
One can hope that the game lives up to the expectations, unlike the goalless draw in the reverse fixture.

#10 February 21: Bengaluru FC v FC GoaAn unstoppable force will come face to face with an immovable object. As it stands, Goa have the best attack in the league, having scored 27 goals in 11 games. Bengaluru have the best defence, conceding just eight goals in 12 games. A clash between the two has always been a mouth watering affair.
