Sandhesh Jhingan, the skipper, and David James the coach are back with a bang. After getting targeted by criticisms all through last season, this year finally seems the time for the team to prove themselves.

Kerala, for this match, has the added advantage of playing in front of their fans. The passionate followers of the Blasters have always been a catalyst to the performance of the team. The vociferous ‘Manjappada’ will act as the proverbial twelfth man for the whole match.

Blasters will have the whole state behind them for the first time after the catastrophic floods uprooted life in Kerala. The team and the management have vowed to bring the elusive trophy to this land of football lovers.

The change in ownership has also positively affected the team morale. The team, under the leadership of popular actor Mohanlal, has started to display their actual talents.
On the other hand, Mumbai is a team that has not yet found their sweet spot.

The new coach and other new signings are expected to take their time to fall into the groove. Team chemistry is down after the disheartening loss in the season opener, that too in front of their home crowd.

Scoring and linking up between the forwards in the final third seem to be a problem for the Islanders. Though a lot of chances are created, players lack the accuracy to put the ball into the back of the net.

Lucian Goian, the skipper of Mumbai, plays his heart out for the team. But the same cannot be said for the team’s forwards.

Kerala Blasters vs Mumbai City: Head-to-head

  • The last 4 matches between these teams have ended in a win for Kerala two times and one time for Mumbai.
  • Seven out of eight matches between these teams have ended with under 2.5 goals.
  • Mumbai has been winless in all the matches played in Kerala so far.

Kerala Blasters vs Mumbai City: Prediction

The striking partnership of Kerala seems to be in red-hot form. The newly acquired duo has found a working chemistry between them. Also, the fact that Blasters in playing in front of their home crowd, and that too for the first time after the floods, should give them extra motivation to win.

Mumbai is a team that is still developing with their new signings. They are expected to struggle against this determined Kerala team. Kerala Blasters has all stars aligned for them to convert this into a win and collect the three points available.

The high point of both the teams is their defence. Kerala under the captaincy of the fiery Sandhesh Jinghan, and Mumbai with their passionate skipper Lucian Goain, will not allow this match to turn into a high scoring one.

Seven out of eight matches between these two sides have been under 2.5 goals. Expect the match to be a closely contested one, with a maximum of two goals.

Kerala Blasters vs Mumbai City Betting Tips

  • Kerala to win against Mumbai @ 13/10 (2.30)
