Mumbai City FC began to their Indian Super League 2016 season with a victory over the local neighbours FC Pune City in the first derby of the campaign. Their performance was fluent and they were pushed on to the back foot for most part of the first half by an energetic Pune team that was not able to go past the keeper Roberto Tigrao. Moving forward, MCFC weren’t made to feel the absence of main players Sunil Chhetri and Sony Norde, with star Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan pulling the strings remarkably. MCFC’s squad appears to have depth and strength this season, and that would come handy as they start their Indian Super League temporary stay at their new home turf, the Mumbai Football Arena in Andheri.
Meanwhile, NorthEast United are in unexplored territory themselves. They are sitting atop of the current table with two clean sheets in their first two games, matching the feat achieved by Atletico de Kolkata and FC Goa of opening a season with two back to back victories. Head coach Nelo Vingada has utilised his resources well, and has kept a uniform distribution of Indian players in key positions. NorthEast United were humiliated 5–1 in this corresponding fixture last year thanks to the hat-trick of Sunil Chhetri, which is why there’ll be an added edge among the survivors of that loss to prove a point.
