Here are the top 3 players you can select as the captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 Fantasy team for the ISL game between Mumbai City FC and Hyderabad FC.
Ahmed Jahouhs vision and awareness in his own half have helped Mumbai City FC become a complete team. Sergio Loberas style is often known for its regular goal-scoring prowess which makes the team vulnerable at the back. Jahouh has played a vital role at the back to make Mumbai City FC as one of the most defensively-disciplined sides in the league as well.
With 581 passes at an extraordinary accuracy rate of 79%, he has built the base for most of Mumbai City FC goals. He also has an assist to his name. Jahouh likes to get the ball back from the opposition and push it to Hugo Boumous and Bipin Singh with his pin-point passing abilities.
Aridane Santana has been on target for Hyderabad FC in the current ISL season. He has scored 6 goals and assisted one goal in 9 ISL matches. Santana acts as the final piece of the puzzle to finish off the build-up play by Hyderabad FC.
Santanas sturdy physique and height also provide him with a significant advantage while challenging for the aerial balls. His exceptional finishing skills and the scoring rate will be a challenge for Mumbai City FC to handle.
Hugo Boumous has made justice to his high price tag in the Indian transfer market. The French-Moroccan midfielder moved to Mumbai City FC from FC Goa after the Islanders paid Rs. 1.76 crores as transfer fee.
Boumous has fit perfectly into the Sergio Lobera system of keeping the ball in the midfield to build up the play. He has been involved in most of the goals his team has scored this season.
Boumous has 5 assists to his name along with a goal in just 8 matches. With 473 passes and 543 touches, Boumous provides a vital cog in the midfield for Mumbai City FC.
