Two huge Indian Super League sides -- Atletico de Kolkata and Mumbai City FC -- go head to head yet again in the Indian football competition on Tuesday. A crucial ISL 2016 fixture sees the two sides, currently among the top four in the points table, battle it out for the top spot.
A win for either side at the Rabindra Sarovar Stadium in the city of joy would hand them the numero uno position in the ISL 2016 points table. Currently, the Kolkata side are second in the league table with nine points from five games -- two wins and three draws, Mumbai stay in the fourth position with eight points from six games -- two wins, two draws and two defeats.
The match will be witnessed by none other than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
Diego Forlan is fit to participate in the match for the away side, but what needs to be seen if Atletico de Kolkata marquee player Helder Postiga can make an appearance. Coach Jose Molina confirmed that the Portuguese hotshot could make it to the bench in the match, but whether or not he can play, remains a doubt.
"I don't know [if Forlan can play in the match] as we will have to see and I will know more only after the training session which we have now and yesterday he did train with the team but he has had fifteen days without playing or training so maybe we can put him on the bench," stated Molina.
Going by their recent form, Atletico have the edge but Mumbai, too, aren't one to back down with the presence of key forwards like Forlan, Sony Norde, Matias Defederico and Leo Costa. "I hope we play the right game against Kolkata and be competitive to win here and get the points. So I feel it is going to be a good game," mentioned Mumbai City FC coach Alexandre Guimaraes.
Atletico de Kolkata vs Mumbai City FC is scheduled to kick off at 7 pm IST (2.30 pm BST) on October 25.
