Speaking ahead of the match, PFC Assistant Coach Dimitrios Kakkos said, “Mumbai City will present a tough challenge for us in tomorrow’s game as they have a really good side.  Our boys did an excellent job in the last game in executing the plan of the game, but we need to be more clinical in front of the goals in the upcoming matches and to not drop points from winning positions”.

Mumbai City FC are on top of the table with three points while Punjab FC have one point.
