The Islanders are set to kick-off their home campaign for Hero Indian Super League Season 4 at Mumbai Football Arena against FC Goa

Hero ISL 2017/18: Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa Preview

Football returns to the Mumbai Football Arena this Saturday with Mumbai City FC looking to kick things off against FC Goa after their opening game of Hero Indian Super League Season 4 didn't go according to plan.

Alexandre Guimaraes and the Islanders went down to a well-organised Bengaluru FC at Sree Kanteerava Stadium. However, last season’s table toppers will aim to get a positive result against Sergio Lobera’s side.

Having won their first game against Chennaiyin FC with a scoreline of 3-2 and a dominant first-half display, Saturday’s visitors and 2015 finalists FC Goa have gathered good momentum heading into their second consecutive away fixture in as many games.

Sometimes you have an off day and that's what happened in our opening game. We are hoping to start off well at home in Hero ISL 2017-18 & expect the fans to back us as they always do. We've got the whole squad ready for tomorrow's game apart from Leo Costa who hasn't recovered from his injury." 

Alexandre Guimaraes, Mumbai City FC Coach. 

The game will kick off at 8:00 pm IST and will be broadcast on the Star Sports Network and Hotstar for all viewers in India.

Let's hope The Islanders return to winning ways in front of the home fans!
