Mumbai City FC - Al-Hilal predictions and free betting tips [06/11/2023]
On Monday, Mumbai City FC will be welcoming Al-Hilal to DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai for the 4th round of the AFC Champions League group stage.
Mumbai City FC
Mumbai City FC is the main outsider in their Champions League group, having not gathered any points or scored a goal against their opponents. They rank third in the Indian National league, having recently taken down Punjab 2:1 at home in the last round. Head Coach Des Buckingham employs a 4-3-3 formation. The team's leading goal-scorer, striker Pereira, has five successful shots on goal. In the Champions League, the team is unable to compete with recognized Asian giants and their attacking line delivers poorly.
Even though Mumbai bashes through opponents and consistently competes for the title back in India, they are chased by failures on the international level. The legionaries lack experience in heated matches, and their nervousness translates into chaos. Following their horrific defeat against Al-Hilal, Mumbai might shore up their midfield and play with a single forward.
Al-Hilal is close to progressing from the group prematurely with a current 7-point haul. The team also dominates the Saudi Arabian League, leading the pack with a 4-point edge over their closest competitor. Al-Hilal strode to a 2:0 victory over Al-Fateh in the last round. Head Coach Jorge Jesus shapes his side in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Al-Hilal keeps winning in all tournaments and has stopped conceding goals, even though they don't always translate their chances into scores. The Brazilian Neymar is sidelined for an extended period for the Arabian side. After undergoing surgery, he is expected to return in September.
The teams have only had one encounter so far, with Al-Hilal smashing the opponent 6:0 at home during the first round. Mitrovic put three past Mumbai City FC.
Match Forecast: Mumbai City FC vs Al-Hilal
