On paper, the Islanders might have a slight edge going into the big game on Wednesday, given the menacing nature of their attacking play and the quality and experience of the overall squad. But if the Islanders have scored 18 times in the tournament so far, the highest among all 20 teams, the Black & White brigade have been no slouch having scored a dozen times themselves.

They have looked very organized and settled under Russian coach Andrey Chernyshov, conceding just two in their campaign to the Islanders’ 10. MDSP also gave fellow semi-finalists Bengaluru FC a run for their money in a 1-1 draw and have played a comfortable football brand.

Greg Stewart and Lallianzuala Chhangte have been the leaders of the MCFC campaign, netting 13 times – the latter currently the top scorer in the tournament with seven goals to his name. With the addition of experienced Senegalese defender Mourtada Fall and ace distributor Rowlin Borges, the Islanders now also look even more balanced and potent.

It’s no wonder then that Des Buckingham was a picture of calm and confidence in the pre-match presser when he said: “We will try to win within 90 minutes.” However, he was respectful of his opponents, adding, “Mohammedans are a good side. Look at the way they are playing. They have to play at their home ground. I respect all Mohammedans players. Joseph is a good player, even Dauda. The way both teams are playing, I hope that it will be an interesting game tomorrow. Looking forward to the game tomorrow.”

Buckingham was referring to MDSP’s own lethal addition to the side, Nigerian striker Abiola Dauda, ​​who struck twice on his debut for the Black & Whites in the quarter-final against Kerala Blasters. With the newfound assist powers of Trinidadian Marcus Joseph, the Mumbai defense will have a task at hand and this is where Buckingham will believe Fall can play a big role.

Coach Chernyshov was also aware of the scope of the task. He said at the press conference before the game, “Mumbai is a strong team. But we have prepared. If we can play in our own style and play good football, then we can get good results. Tomorrow we expect a really tough game. This is a step from the final, so an important game. Both teams have played well so they want to win. Tomorrow’s game will be good for the supporters because they will witness a very good game.”

In football, there are quality players, good coaches, favorite teams and underdogs. There are track conditions, and there are home crowds, and there are stakes. And all these factors converge on VYBK on Wednesday. Expect a close but mouth-watering football match.
