It remains goalless as Kerala Blasters and Mumbai City FC head back into the tunnel after 45 minutes of play. Mumbai City FC created a number of chances in the first 35 minutes but had to make two changes with Sougou and Pratik coming in and from there, Kerala were probing trying to find a goal.

17' - After the early intense exchanges, both the teams have now settled down and most of the game is being played in the midfield and if the teams are sending a ball up, it's either a waste or is being handled by the defence. Mumbai still look the more assured team.

9' - A beautiful ball in the middle from the right from Sourvik Chakrabarti but it is parried away.

10' - Diego Carlos shows good skill with his feet towards the right of the Kerala goal and whips in a cross at the far post that Larbi meet but his header is just wide. Mumbai City FC are applying good pressure on the home team early on but this is exactly what ATK did too. Mumbai will want to make it count.

4' - A huge penalty appeal from Mumbai City FC but the referee was having none of it!

Rowllin Borges was one of the key members of NorthEast United FC under Eelco Scattorie last season. The two are now in Kochi but in different colours.

Oct 24, 2019 7:06 pm (IST)

Kerala coach Schattorie has left promising Indian player Sahal on the bench once again. He had said in his pre-match conference that he does not believe in making too many changes and hence, his starting XI tonight is exactly the one that began the opener against ATK.

Kerala Blasters coach Eelco Schattorie felt Mumbai City FC have the advantage of having seen them play against ATK while the Islanders are playing their opener in Kochi. “The playing style of Mumbai (City) is clear for me. How the positions are filled and which players is always a question mark when you don't see their games. If you already saw your opponent play one time, it makes a difference. (But) it is another challenge that we have to face,” he said ahead of the clash.

Oct 24, 2019 6:36 pm (IST)

Mumbai City FC host a slight 3-2 advantage over Kerala Blasters in their head-to-head record. The two teams have played 10 matches in the ISL history with five of them ending in a draw. The last time these two met, Mumbai gave Kerala a 6-1 drubbing. However, that was a very different Kerala side.

Oct 24, 2019 6:31 pm (IST)

Kerala Blasters are hosting their second match of the season in what is also their second game. Mumbai City FC, on the other hand, are beginning their new campaign away from home in front of the vociferous Kochi crowd.

Kerala Blasters gave a good account of themselves against ATK but they have a cause for concern as their influential midfielder Mario Arques was taken off injured in the last game. However, Bartholomew Ogbeche would once again be the centre of attraction as after a quick start to the season, he would be expected to add to his goal tally.



Mumbai will look towards the likes of Paulo Machado and Modou Sougou, key figures behind the team's run to the play-offs last season, to drive the team. They have several key Indian midfielders in Rowllin Borges and Raynier Fernandes who will be expected to set the tempo for the team from the middle of the park. The Islanders will also bank on the firepower they have with new recruits Serge Kevyn and Amine Chermiti boosting their attacking arsenal.
