The Al-Hilal team will challenge the Mumbai City team in a AFC Champions League 3e ronde in King Fahd International Stadium Stadium, Riyadh on Monday, October 23, 2023. For streaming coverage of Al-Hilal vs. Mumbai City, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Al-Hilal will host Mumbai City FC at the King Fahd International Stadium in an AFC Champions League group stage match on Monday evening. The hosts are the team who are very favorites to win and maintain their position at the top of the standings.
Al-Hilal has performed very well in all the competitions they have participated in. They are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions, with 10 wins. They also lead the Saudi Pro League standings and are unbeaten in their first 10 matches, with eight wins.
Even without Neymar, Al-Hilal still has extraordinary strength in the front line, with Mitrović, Malcom, Michael and Al-Dawsari as the main threats to the opponent’s defense. They also have a solid midfield with Milinkovic-Savic and Ruben Neves as playmakers.
On the other hand, Mumbai City FC will face a big challenge to match Al-Hilal’s game. They have yet to score points in the AFC Champions League this season, having lost to FC Nassaji Mazandaran and Navbahor. They also have a poor record in scoring goals in this competition, scoring just three goals in 11 matches.
However, Mumbai City must not lose enthusiasm and must try to provide fierce resistance. They have quality players such as Hugo Boumous, Adam Le Fondre, Ahmed Jahouh, Rowllin Borges, and Mourtada Fall. They also have confidence after picking up a 2-1 win in the ISL against Kerala Blasters FC.
Coach Des Buckingham is aware of how difficult this match will be, but emphasized his team’s determination to fight all the way. He said: “The team’s mood is fine. This is probably the toughest game. It’s a very big stage, with very big players.
My players want to play against the best and this team definitely provides that opportunity. We will try to do what we can do. That’s all I can ask from my players. We will approach the game in a very similar way.”
Given Al-Hilal’s better record in the Asian Champions League and Mumbai City’s poor goalscoring record in this competition, it was almost predictable that the hosts would pick up a narrow win and possibly a clean sheet.
