Mohun Bagan – Mohammedan SC Match Prediction | 20-09-2019 05:30

On the other hand, Mohammedan Sporting Club is managed by one of Indias most renowned coaches, Subrata Bhattacharya. The Black Panthers have already secured the services of Ugandan playmaker Mussa Mudde, Nigerian stopper Karim Omolaja Nurain, and the Ivorian duo of Charles Atcha and Arthur Kouassi in the striking zone. After failing to break into the I-League last season, the club bosses vested the responsibility of the team to the tactical genius.

In spite of enjoying a 2-goal cushion in the next fixture against ATK, they conceded a late goal and could have even conceded another one. Their back four looked ill-at-ease on several occasions, which is a major concern for the team. The green and maroon brigade started the tournament with a bang, defeating Mohammedan Sporting Club by a 2-0 margin.

Prediction correct score: 1 - 0

Mohammedan Sporting goalkeeper Shankar Roy was simply brilliant under the woodwork today. Even though his top notch performance failed to earn points for his side, he definitely made a name for himself today. He pulled off some spectacular saves to deny Ansumana Kromah and Stephane Bayi Kamo from scoring on a number of occasions. Among his several saves, two notable ones of against Bayi Kamos thunder strike in the first half and back to back saves of Kromahs attempts in the second half.

Bagans defence has been breached quite a few times this season, and they are yet to win a game in the Calcutta Football League. Morante is the backbone of Mohun Bagans defence and is expected to play a key role for them in the future. He even scored a goal against ATK in their last Durand Cup tie. Although they have won both their games in the Durand Cup, they have looked vulnerable at the back. Fran Morante has been an exception, and the Spanish stopper has hardly committed any errors.

He had scored a wonder goal in the Derby match in April this year which had knocked East Bengal out of the title race. After a series of below par performance, the winger was dropped by coach Shankarlal in the last match and was replaced by Pintu Mahato. But the youngster failed to replicate his performance this season in the CFL. He was brought back in todays high voltage clash and he has firmly won back the coach's trust.He was flawless on the left flank throughout the game and also netted a brace to keep his team in the title race. Azharuddin Mullick was one of the standout performers for Mohun Bagan last season in the I-League.

Mohun Bagan - Mohammedan: Over 0.5 goals

The former Mohun Bagan player has been the best player for the Indian Navy. The Goa-based footballer has the ability to haunt Bagans defence in the upcoming fixture. They were thrashed 6-2 by Mohammedan Sporting Club, but Britto scored a brace for them as a consolation. He's has been a livewire on the wings and was at a significant contributor in all of their attacks.

It is expected that the team will go all guns blazing in their last match. Indian Navy impressed in the first game, having played out a 1-1 draw against Indian Super League outfit ATK. Having already been eliminated from the tournament, Indian Navy have nothing to lose. But, in both the matches, their attitude has been positive, and they have played fearless football throughout. They were outclassed by heavyweights Mohammedan Sporting Club in the next match by a 6-2 margin.
