Reigning champions Chennaiyin FC will try and put their bad form behind to register their first win of the season when they host Mumbai City FC at Chennai's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Saturday.

Chennaiyin FC and Mumbai City FC have faced each other eight times during which the reigning champions came on top on five occasions while Mumbai could manage just two wins.
Chennai have scored five goals from 22 shots on target while having 72.17 per cent passing accuracy. They also have one clean sheet. Mumbai have also scored the same number of goals from 19 shots on tatrget while having 67.17 per cent passing accuracy. They have also registered two clean-sheets.
Coach Gregory will be hoping the team finds inspiration against Mumbai, which lies sixth in the standings.
On the other hand, Mumbai City FC's performance has been up and down. The side did well to bounce back against Delhi after being routed 5-0 by FC Goa. They currently have seven points from five games.
