Sporting Clube de Goa would be looking to collect full points when they meet Mumbai FC a Hero I-League football match at Nehru Stadium in Fatorda today.

Sporting Clube de Goa, who are one point behind Mumbai FC, have eight points from six matches. They are a well-balanced side and have played well in their last two matches but lacked finishing touch which was visible in their drawn affair against Salgaocar in the last match.

Sporting captain Denzil Teobald, who got a knock in the last match, have recovered but coach Meteus Costa will take a final call on him today.

Mumbai’s Ashutas Mehta, on the other hand, is back in the side after recovering from injury.

Both the teams have drawn both their matches last year and will be looking for a win.

Mumbai FC coach Khalid Jamil said Sporting Clube de Goa is a well balance side and have good players.

 “It is going to be a close contest. Our boys are playing well but lacked in finishing. In football result counts, if we play well and not score, it will not help us. Our boys know today we are playing at home. Hopefully they convert the chances that come their way,” said Costa.
