Mumbai Marines FC face Orange FC in their next Mumbai Super League match scheduled to take place on Tuesday, December 12 at the Neville D’Souza Football Stadium in Bandra.
The Mumbai Marines side has endured a tough run of games in their last four matches with two narrow defeats and two last minute draws that has put their season in a fix at the moment. They face an uphill battle to turn the season around beginning tomorrow where they take on Oranje FC.
After winning their opening three matches, scoring maximum points, nine out of nine, Mumbai Marines FC managed to get only two out of the possible twelve points. A 1-2 loss to Iron Born FC (U-19) after taking the lead in the first half, a stoppage time equaliser from Kopana FC (WC) denied Mumbai Marines all three points as they had to settle only for one. Table toppers Somaiya FC also scored an injury time equaliser to deny the Mumbai Marines side all three points, India Rush SC beat Mumbai Marines 1-0 earlier in October. It is worth mentioning that three of the previous four matches were against top five sides in the table.
Fast forward to December, 70 days after their last win, Mumbai Marines FC go head to head against Oranje FC looking for nothing but three points. Oranje FC on the other hand are in top-form winning three out of their last four matches drawing the other game. That is ten out of twelve points taking them to fourth place in the table.
It will be a tough test for Mumbai Marines FC who know that nothing but three points are needed after a recent slump in form.
