The Islanders, winners of the Indian Super League (ISL) and League Winners Shield in the 2020-21 season, have looked solid in the run-up to the final, what with the addition of key players from the quarter-finals such as Senegalese defender Mourtada Fall, giving them a more rounded look.

They have the tournament’s top scorer with seven goals in Lallianzuala Chhangte in their ranks and one of the same quality as Greg Stewart who commands authority in midfield. Mumbai City coach Des Buckingham said in the pre-match press conference,

“We are here to win the Durand Cup and start the ISL season with more confidence. I am happy with my team so far. I expect an exciting match. BFC is a good team, they have good players. My message to the team tomorrow will be to enjoy the game.”

Simon Grayson, BFC’s England manager was also respectful of his Sunday opponents, saying at the pre-match press conference, “Look, I think we have to play as a team tomorrow. Mumbai have some very good players. Greg Stewart and others. So we know what they can do. They play a lot of passes. We have to be good tomorrow to stop the opposition. I think it’s important to win the final and it doesn’t matter what style we play. We have to be careful tomorrow and make sure we play better. We have no injuries. Our aim will be to win the trophy without injuries. We are in the final and we will make sure we win the trophy because we have the mentality to win.”

BFC were the ISL 2018-19 champions but also have six other premier domestic titles to their name and will be vying for their seventh. They have fielded the most successful batting line-up in the tournament with talisman Sunil Chhetri, Roy Krishna and Siva Sakthi all in scoring form. At the back too, the experience of regular Indian internationals like Sandesh Jhingan and Gurpreet Sandhu has stood them in good stead.

Both teams like to win and it has been a while since they won silverware. We can therefore expect a mouth-watering football match on Sunday in the holy VYBK.
