Mumbai City FC to face tough challenge against East Bengal

Suman Chakraborty: Kingfisher East Bengal to start as favourites against Mumbai, as the ISL side has been pricked by so many noteworthy absences against the Kolkata Giant.

Mumbai City FC to play their Super Cup pre-quarterfinal clash against East Bengal on Thursday evening without as many as six foreign stars against Kingfisher East Bengal.

While striker Rafael Jorda hasn’t recovered in time, the Brazilians in the squad, namely Everton Santos, Thiago Santos, Gerson Vieira, Marcio Rosario and Leo Costa, have been released from their duties. Vieira has since joined Renofa Yamaguchi FC, who ply their trade in Japanese second division. It must be noted that the Brazilian players have an opportunity to get another contract in their homeland between now and the start of next season’s Indian Super League (ISL).

Only skipper Lucian Goian and midfielder Achille Emana are available for selection for the knockout game this week.
