ISL 2021-22: HOME | FIXTURES | RESULTS | POINTS TABLE | PHOTOS
While Mumbai City FC outplayed Bengaluru in a 3-1 in their last outing in this season, things will be different this time around as the former is contending to cement their place at the top while Bengaluru FC are desperately in need of the three points to revive the season.

The Blues sit eighth in the league table with 10 points, winning two games, drawing, and losing four each. Pezzaiuoli’s men ended their 7-game winless run with a 4-2 win against Chennaiyin FC in their second to last game.
In the Bengaluru FC camp, Leon Augustine has not returned to training. Sarthak Golui is also ruled out. Jayesh Rane picked up an ankle injury in the last match, so he is also unavailable. Ajay Chhetri was sick for a week so he will also not feature.
