Ten-man Goa did what they needed to do as a 0-0 draw with Hyderabad on the final day sealed their spot in the ISL finals.

The Gaurs needed to avoid defeat in the fourth vs fifth clash, and they did just that in a game devoid of goalscoring chances.

Even the sending off of Spanish midfielder Alberto Noguera did derail their play-off hopes.

Goa are on a 13-game unbeaten run since losing in mid-December, but of them have ended in draws - including six in a row.

Juan Ferrando's side beat Odisha 3-1 and Bengaluru 2-1 to move back into the play-off places prior to the draw with Hyderabad.

Goa will be without the suspended Albert Noguerra, meaning Jorge Ortiz will get a recall to the starting line-up.

Ivan Gonzalez will also sit out the first leg through suspension after picking up his fourth booking of the season against Hyderabad.

Mumbai City Form


Mumbai City won the Judgement Day decide and the ISL Winners Shields thanks to a 2-0 victory over ATK Mohun Bagan.

Sergio Lobera's side then finished top and earned a place in the AFC Champions League after beating rivals ATK in a winner-takes-all contest.

The Islanders scored after just three minutes through Mourtada Fall and doubled the advantage with a Bartholomew Ogbeche goal.

The victory saw the long-time league leaders secure top ranking in the ISL finals.

Mumbai City Team News


Sergio Lobera has a selection dilemma with midfielder Hugo Boumous available again after serving a four-match suspension.

Winger Vignesh Dakshinamurthy also returns from a one-game ban.
