ISL 2023-24: Mohun Bagan vs Mumbai City – Build-up

Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City will face off in what is the ‘finale’ for the Indian Super League (ISL 2023-24) Shield championship at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata on Monday (15 April). With the Mariners currently two points behind the Islanders, Antonio Habas’ side will be going all out for a win, while Mumbai City will be equally determined to win their third ISL Shield.

Before heading into the January break before the AFC Asian Cup, Mohun Bagan seemed down and out of the ISL Shield race. They fell quite far behind the league leaders before Antonio Habas came back and rejuvenated their hopes. The Mariners have lost just once under the Spaniard and are clinging onto their ISL Shield dreams heading into the final round.

The equations are simple for them – go for the win! Mohun Bagan must produce an even better performance than what they did in the 4-0 thrashing of Bengaluru FC. The Mariners have to be ruthless, decisive and also at their very best defensively, to oust this in-form Mumbai City side and earn a chance to play in Asia next season.

Mumbai City are in a more comfortable position heading into this tie. For them, even a draw will be enough to seal the championship. However, after nearly losing to the Mariners in the reverse fixture earlier this season, the Islanders could be cautious in their approach. But, Petr Kratky is unlikely to ask his side to settle for a point.

He’ll want them to maintain their high-octane approach, pressing the opposition players intensely, winning possession in key areas and tormenting them on the counter-attack. Mumbai will aim to reinstate their reputation as India’s undisputed best side by being at their prolific best and silencing the Salt Lake Stadium with a clinical performance.
