HALF TIME! Modou Sougou's sixth-minute strike is the difference between Mumbai City FC and Hyderabad FC after 45 minutes of play at the Mumbai Football Arena.

19' - Diego Carlos does well to get a free kick and Larbi delivers the free kick behind outside the box towards a completely unmarked Diego Carlos but the Mumbai players strikes it wide. He is frustrated with himself for missing that, terrible defending from Hyderabad.

21' - Amrinder does well to punch the ball out as the cross comes towards his goal for Bobo and as Kevyn runs forward, Gurtej brings him down and Sougou had the chance to run up with the ball but the referee decides to stop the play for the foul.

14' - CHANCE! Great ball from Asish from the right flank into the centre for Bobo, who rises high but cannot direct his header towards the goal. It was a good chance for Hyderabad to equalise and Bobo is coming off scoring two headers in their previous game.

6' - GOAL! Modou Sougou scores his first goal of the season and it has taken him 10 games! Mumbai City FC are leading at home early on! A fabulous team goal that! Subhasish Bose puts in a good ball on the left flank for Diego Carlos, who gets in behind the defenders to collect the ball and run up the pitch. He cuts is and Gurtej just loses the ball as Carlos passes it in the centre to Sougou, who had made a run from all the way back. Sougou calmly slots it home with all defenders between the left and centre of the goal. Last season's top scorer for Mumbai has found his first.

1' - CHANCE for Mumbai! Diego Carlos with some good work on the left and goes for a swerving shot at goal but it was a little too close to Kamaljit, who got a strong palm to it.

2' - Bobo receives an excellent ball in the box and from the left, he takes a shot that Mumbai get a foot too and the ball goes out. This should have been a corner but the referee did not award it. Bobo is livid with the decision.

Jorge Costa's team are on a five-match unbeaten run and Amine Chermiti is their top scorer with four goals to his name and as many as 11 different players have scored a goal. What would concern Costa is that his side struggles to keep clean-sheets, something which they haven't managed in the last seven games. He will also be without the services of midfielder Paulo Machado and Rowllin Borges due to injury.



Coach Phil Brown's Hyderabad FC have not kept a clean sheet and have been the weakest defence conceding 19 goals from nine matches. The good news for Brown is that star striker Bobo has found his scoring boots as he has three goals to his name. Also, Nestor Gordillo has returned from suspension and looked good in his first-ever ISL game. Rafa Lopez is also back in contention after recovering from an injury.
