ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa: Catch all the live updates from the Indian Super League 2019-20 match between Mumbai City FC and FC Goa through News18 Sports' live blog. FC Goa get back to winning ways with a 4-2 thrashing of Mumbai City FC at the Mumbai Football Arena on Thursday. This is a second straight 4-2 loss for Mumbai as they lost to Odisha FC with the same scoreline. Here's the story of the match: Despite a good start from Mumbai City FC, the visitors grew into the game and forced mistakes at the back from Mumbai, whose defending kept losing the sheen as the clock wore on. Lenny Rodrigues put FC Goa in the lead in the 27th minute, scoring a brilliant volley from the corner kick after which, Ferran Corominas finished off a Seriton pass just before half time to give FC Goa a two-goal cushion. Mumbai City FC came with renewed vigour in the second half and within 10 minutes, Sarthak Golui and Souvik Chakrabarti had brought them on level terms. However, they lost concentration after drawing level and Hugo Boumous headed in Mourtada Fall's header across the goal to put Goa back in the lead. Mumbai tried to get back in the game but to no avail and in the 89th minute, Carlos Pena poked in an Edu Bedia's free kick to give Goa an emphatic win.

Season six of the Indian Super League is expected to bring a lot of excitement as it is now the top division league of the country and the league-stage table toppers will get a spot in the AFC Champions League playoffs. Mumbai City FC began their season with their first-ever win in Kochi but followed it up with a draw in Chennai and a thrashing loss at home and now, they were once again crushed at home by a free-flowing FC Goa. The visitors, on the other hand, had a dream start against Chennaiyin FC but got fighting-cum-lucky draws in the next two. Eager to return to their free-flowing football, Goa did just that and slotted in four in win over Mumbai. With the win, FC Goa are now top of the table with 8 points from four games, same as NorthEast United FC but a better goal difference of 5. LIVE STREAMING

59' - GOAL! That's straight out of the training ground. Ahmed Jahouh whips the free kick into the far corner and Mourtada Fall rises the highest to head the ball across and Hugo Boumous runs up and heads the ball in. He clatters the insides of his thigh into the post with momentum and falls straight near the netting. No celebration as Boumous has to tended to. But what a game this is turning out to be!

55' - GOAL! Just 10 minutes into the second half and Mumbai City FC have equalled it! Souvik Chakrabarti first-times that one so sweetly and Mohammad Nawaz had no chance with that one whatsoever. This game is all open now!

49' - GOAL! That was clearly a fault from the FC Goa defence. Mumbai City FC had been whipping the corner towards the far post but still no one marked Sarthak Golui there. Sarthak heads in the ball from the corner and Mumbai City FC are back in the game. And very early in the second half!

Hugo Boumous with a brilliant through ball and Subhasish Bose went asleep there as Seriton Fernandes made the run behind him.

14' - Bipin Singh's delivery from the right is put out for corner by Carlos Pena. Mumbai were trying to hit on the counter with FC Goa looking quite tentative and losing the ball. This is quite unlike FC Goa.

Last year's finalists FC Goa are all set to take on Mumbai City FC and would be eager to register a win and also continue their unbeaten run.

Nov 7, 2019 6:57 pm (IST)

Despite the injury troubles at Mumbai City FC, coach Jorge Costa is not ready to use it as an excuse and instead he wants to focus on finding the solutions and working his way around it.

ISL 2019-20 HIGHLIGHTS, Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa: Goa's Goal Rush vs Mumbai Continues With 4-2 Win
Indian Super League 2019-20: Mumbai City FC were condemned to a 4-2 defeat by FC Goa in their second home game of the season.

Mumbai City FC are in for a stern test in the form of FC Goa and it could not have come in a worse time when they are plagued with injuries. Jorge Costa will miss the services of Mato Grgic once again in the defence and may have to field an all-Indian defence. Their star forward Modou Sougou has also not fully recovered with Rowllin Borges also joining the list with an injury during the Odisha loss. Mumbai will be eager to put behind the memories of their 5-1 semi-final loss against FC Goa at this very ground last season.

FC Goa have not been able to produce the football they are known for in the last two games and have struggled to get the draws. On the other hand, they are returning to the ground for the first time since losing last season's final to Bengaluru FC in extra time. Goa, who are currently fourth with five points from three games, have the chance to go top if they beat Mumbai City FC.
