The CFC vs MCFC match preview –
Defending champions Chennaiyin FC will be trying to salvage their season as they take on high-flying Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League on Thursday.
Chennaiyin FC are almost completing the worst defence of an Indian Super League title. The team has only won one game in 10 games played and are nowhere near the side who clinched the title just a few months ago. The attack appears to be in shambles, the midfield looks shallow and the defence is timid. No player in the roster has delivered a performance of someone who is a champion, and this has been the worst reality check a club could ever get.
On the other hand, Mumbai City FC are in a really good position of getting into the playoffs this year. Coach Jorge Costa has done a phenomenal job with the team as they have recovered from an early slump to absolutely smashing past some teams. Their attack is working as the formation has finally become stable. All they need to do is keep this momentum up and hope they get a higher classification in the league table.
