Current Indian Super League (ISL) leaders Mumbai City FC have enjoyed a scintillating start to the ongoing season, maintaining a significant lead at the top. In an attempt to further strengthen their hold in the competition, Mumbai City FC will square off against FC Goa on Monday.
Here are our four betting tips for the Mumbai City FC vs FC Goa clash:
Exact score first half 0-1 4.70
Mumbai City have failed to score in the first half of the previous two games, while FC Goa have scored twice in the opening half of the previous two fixtures. Thus the odds suggest that FC Goa will take a goal’s lead in the first half.
Second half goals 2+ 1.83
Mumbai City FC have scored in the second half of the previous two fixtures, often touted as the comeback kings in the ISL. Similarly, FC Goa scored one goal each in the second half of the previous two fixtures. But Mumbai City’s defence has leaked the fewest goals in the competition. Hence, we think that Mumbai City FC will score both the goals in the second half.
Full time exact score 2-1 7.75
Mumbai City FC are the second highest scoring side in the competition this season, with 22 goals in 15 games. Mumbai City FC failed to score only in two games this season against NorthEast United and Odisha FC. The ISL leaders haven’t scored more than three goals in a single game this season. And similarly they haven’t conceded more than twice in a fixture.
FC Goa, on the other hand, have ended up sharing the spoils of the game in the previous four successive occasions. And with Mumbai’s recent form, it will be a tedious task to bag a draw. Hence, the odds favour Mumbai City FC to score twice and win the tie.
Total goals over 2.5 goals 1.86
Odds are high on the game witnessing three goals in total. Thus over 2.5 bet could be placed upon to achieve the desired profits. Thus, if the scorecard fluctuates over and above three goals, the bettor tends to benefit. Other odds which could be taken into consideration are under 3 bet, i.e. the game will end 2-0, or 1-1, or 0-2 in favour of either of the sides and the two teams will not combine to score more than two goals.
