“We haven't played against Rajasthan United before. They have done pretty well in the tournament so far, having earned points against both the hosts ATK Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, so it will be a challenging game, but we are prepared for it,” said Des Buckingham prior to the match.
The match between Mumbai City FC and Rajasthan United FC is scheduled for 3pm IST and will be telecasted live on Sports18 and Sports18HD, with live streaming available on Voot Select.
Odisha FC vs Sudeva Delhi FC (6pm IST)
Odisha FC will aim to extend their winning record as they play against an unbeaten Sudeva Delhi FC in their third match of the Group D fixture at the Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati on Monday.
Dominating Group D with two splendid wins over Hero ISL sides NorthEast United FC and Kerala Blasters FC in their opening two games, the Kalinga Warriors are a force to be reckoned with.
Sudeva Delhi FC, on the contrary, have managed two draws against Kerala Blasters FC and Army Green FT, with the onus falling on the three points as the campaign advances towards the knockout stages.
A win for Josep Gombau’s side almost takes them through to the next stage while a win is vital for Sudeva Delhi to stay afloat in the group and have a chance at the knockout stages.
Odisha FC’s match against Sudeva Delhi FC is scheduled for 6pm IST and will be telecasted live on Sports18 and Sports18HD, with live streaming available on Voot Select.
