In their latest ISL match, Mumbai City FC suffered their first defeat in the 2023/2024 season, losing 2-0 against Kerala Blasters FC at Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium. This loss marked the end of their nine-match unbeaten streak (W5 D4 L0).

Chennaiyin FC, on the other hand, recently experienced a setback with a 1-0 defeat against Punjab FC at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, bringing an end to their four-match unbeaten streak. As a result, they currently occupy the sixth position with 12 points.

Head to Head

The last encounter between Mumbai City FC and Chennaiyin FC in the Indian Super League saw Mumbai emerging victorious with a 2-1 scoreline at Mumbai Football Arena in the previous season. Lallianzuala Chhangte and Greg Stewart scored for Mumbai, while Petar Sliskovic found the net for Chennaiyin.

Mumbai City FC has dominated the recent head-to-head record against Chennaiyin FC, going unbeaten in their last six ISL matches (W5 D1 L0). Chennaiyin is aiming for their first league victory against Mumbai since February 2020, as Mumbai City has outscored them 13-5 during this unbeaten streak.

Recent Perfomance

Jorge Pereyra Díaz has been a key player for Mumbai City FC this season, leading the club with six goals, which is currently joint-most in the league for the 2023/2024 season. Chennaiyin FC’s primary attacking contributors have been Rafael Crivellaro, Jordan Murray, and Connor Shields, each scoring three times.

Mumbai City FC has maintained an unbeaten record at Mumbai Football Arena this season, with three wins and two draws in five ISL contests. They aim to extend their five-match home unbeaten streak (W3 D2 L0) dating back to October 8 against Kerala Blasters FC. On the other hand, Chennaiyin FC has had mixed results on the road this season, with one win, two draws, and three losses. They are looking to break a three-match away winless streak (W0 D2 L1) that has persisted since October 23 against Hyderabad FC.

In their recent six league matches, Mumbai City FC has secured three wins, two draws, and one loss. Chennaiyin FC, during the same period, has won one, drawn three, and lost two matches.


Based on current form, Mumbai City FC holds a slight edge with their attacking firepower. However, Chennaiyin FC’s fighting spirit and defensive adjustments can’t be ignored. We predict a close encounter with a possible draw or a narrow victory for Mumbai City FC.

Report About Mumbai Football Arena

The Mumbai Football Arena, located in the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai, India, stands as a football stadium with a rich history. Constructed in 1988 and undergoing renovations in 2023, it distinguishes itself as one of the few football-exclusive stadiums in the country. Since 2016, the stadium has been the proud home of Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League.

Following the installation of bucket seats, the stadium currently accommodates up to 6,600 spectators. Beyond its architectural aspects, the Mumbai Football Arena holds significance in the realm of international football. On September 3, 2016, it hosted a FIFA international friendly where the India national football team triumphed over the Puerto Rico national football team with a score of 4–1, captivating a packed stadium.

Moreover, the arena served as the venue for the 2017 Hero Tri-Nation Series, featuring matches between India, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Mauritius. In June 2018, the stadium showcased all seven matches of the 2018 Intercontinental Cup. It further solidified its standing by being selected as one of the host venues for the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup.

About Indian Super League (ISL)

The Indian Super League (ISL) is the men’s highest level of the Indian football league system. It was founded on 21 October 2013 with the aim of growing the sport of football in India and increasing its exposure in the country. The league is co-promoted by Reliance, Star India, and supported by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

The ISL began play in October 2014 with eight teams. During its first three seasons, the competition operated without official recognition from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), which is the governing body for the sport in Asia. It was structured along the same lines as the Indian Premier League, the country’s premier Twenty20 franchise-based cricket competition. Each season lasted just three months, from October to December, and matches were held daily.

However, before the 2017–18 season, the league expanded to ten teams, extended its schedule to six months, and earned recognition from the AFC. The season runs from September to March and includes a 22-round regular season followed by playoffs involving the top six teams, culminating with the ISL Final to determine the champions. At the end of the regular season, the team with the most points is declared the premiers and presented with the League Winners’ Shield.

Currently, the league comprises 12 clubs. ISL clubs gain qualification to the Asian continental club competitions; regular-season premiers qualify directly for the subsequent season’s AFC Cup group stage. The league has received unmatched visibility in a short span of time and is speculated to be one of the top-tier leagues in India after the I-League.
