ISL - Indian Super League
Mumbai City FC hope to continue their good form against Atletico de Kolkata on Tuesday
Mumbai City FC have had an emphatic start to the third season in the Indian Super League by not having lost any points so far in the tournament, being the only team to have done so in this season.

The team hopes to continue with its good form against the 2014 champions Atletico de Kolkata on Tuesday.

In their previous two games, Mumbai have beaten FC Pune City and NorthEast United FC. Another thing special about Tuesday's match is that both the sides that clash against each other are unbeaten so far. Atletico de Kolkata is also so far unbeaten in Season 3 of the Hero India Super League having beaten Kerala Blaster in their last game away from home.

Alexandre Borges, the coach of Mumbai is confident about his side's chances against Kolkata. He strongly feels that his side has room for improvement in defence.

He said, "We are very pleased with the start of the season, for us it is a total different feeling. We have to improve to not give easy chances to the rivals, in the first two games we did very well but we gave them (opponents) chances, if we reduce that margin that will make us even stronger."

The key player in Tuesday's match for Mumbai City FC shall be Diego Forlan. The Uruguyan player scored the solitary goal against Pune and also scored the winning goal against NorthEast United. But, Kolkata's coach Jose Molina feels that Mumbai has a lot of match winners other than Forlan.

Molina said, "I don't like to focus on one individual; they have other good players in the team. There is no special plan only for one player."

What makes this game even more crucial is that whoever wins it will go to the top of the league table.
