Joffre lobbed the ball towards the far post where Thongkhosiem Haokip was at hand to tap the ball into the back of the net. Subrata Paul could have done better as he had a chance to grab the ball from the air as it was heading to the Goa striker. Haokip made no mistake as he gleefully slotted the ball past the keeper to make it 3-0. Mumbai City will need a miracle to get back into the game from this position.

25 mins: Another counter attack chance for the visitors goes to waste. This time, there was a freekick to Goa deep in the Mumbai half but the ball was cleared. There was a break on as Nicolas Anelka freed Keegan Pereira with a superb through ball. The winger managed to get ahead of the defenders and looked to be one on one with the keeper. Just when it mattered, the Indian lost his footing and took a tumble.

13 mins: Romeo Fernandes has an opportunity to go for goal as the ball falls nicely to his right foot outside the box. Instead, the winger dribbles towards the right flank and tries to send in a cross. His delivery is weak and it gets cleared out of danger with ease. The winger should have attempted a shot when he had the chance.

8 mins: Raju Gaikwad sends a mighty long throw into the box from the right. The Mumbai City FC defense manage to clear the danger but only to the path of Joffre.

The match kicks off.

6:10pm: We come into this game with 99 goals scored so far. Last year, Romeo Fernandes was on the mark to score the 100th goal of the season. This year, with the likes of Anelka, Sunil Chhetri and Nicolas Anelka featuring in the match, it will be interesting to see who will score the 100th goal of the season. Can Romeo Fernandes repeat the feat or will it be a new name? We will find out soon enough.

6:05pm: Goa have not been able to beat Mumbai City FC in any of the three matches played between the two. The two teams faced off in ISL season 1 twice, no goals were scored in either game as both the sides played out a goalless draw home and away. This season when Mumbai City hosted the Gaurs, they managed to secure all three points courtesy of goals from Chhetri and Piquionne. The duo will be hoping that they can once again turn up the goods and deliver for their team in a bid to go top of the table.

FC Goa would be looking to maintain their top position when they take on Mumbai City in an Indian Super League encounter at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Tuesday.

FC Goa have been scintillating this season having lost only two of their nine games. Interestingly one of the loss was against tonight's opponent, so in some ways, this will be a redemption match for Zico and his men.

Mumbai City FC and FC Goa are separated by four teams in the league table but a victory for the visitors will propel them to the top of the lot. Such is the nature of the league, all the teams are so very close to each other that a single point won or dropped can make a remarkable difference to the league table.
