Goa vs Mumbai City
Indian Super League
Date: Wednesday, 24 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Goa).
Goa got a revenge on the defending champions Chennaiyin on Saturday when they picked up a comfortable 1-3 victory away in Chennai to get their league campaign up and running at the start of the new season. Edu Bedia, Coro and Mourtada Fall bagged goals to help the Gaurs clinch their maiden victory of the new season at the weekend.
Can the team led by the Spanish manager Sergio Lobera back it up on Wednesday afternoon when they host Mumbai City in their third game of the season? The visitors have already played three matches so far, but they only managed to collect four points with a win, a draw and a defeat apiece. They started off with a 0-2 loss to Jamshedpur at home, but they certainly grew in confidence beating Pune City 2-0 at home on Friday.
Goa vs Mumbai City: Head-to-head
Goa have the chance to make it all square at three wins, draws and defeats for each of the teams with a victory here in the ninth head to head encounter with the Islanders.
The most recent head to head history belongs to Mumbai City who won last two clashes against the Gaurs.
The previous one, played in January this year, saw a seven-goal thriller (3-4 win for Mumbai City).
Goa vs Mumbai City: Prediction
Goa stared the new season playing ultra-attacking football under Sergio Lobera. His compatriot Coro is enjoying a strong spell of form in the final third as he notched three goals in two appearances so far. He would be out top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet here.
As for the outcome, we see a decent value in backing the hosts to win at 1.90 knowing they will come into this encouraged with the victory over the reigning ISL champions Chennaiyin. Given the visitors also bagged two goals past play-off hopefuls Pune City on Friday, the BTTS is a perfect alternative bet at the odds of 1.50.
