NorthEast United FC vs Mumbai City highlights: Arnold Issoko’s early strike handed NorthEast United their first defeat of the season at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati on Friday. For Mumbai City this was a crucial win as they have a game in hand. Rafael Bastos was named as the man of the match. The Highlanders are heading into the fixture with 11 points from five matches while the visitors have notched 10 points from six games.
After a 5-0 hammering at the hands of FC Goa, Mumbai have fought back into contention with back-to-back wins against Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC. Moudou Sougou's form in front of goal is encouraging for Costa against NorthEast's defence that has looked solid at the back. Grgic and co. have conceded only six goals, which is also the number of goals scored by Mumbai City so far this season.
