FCG vs KBFC Dream11: Kerala Blasters will look to end its four-game winless run when they host last-season=s beaten finalist FC Goa in round six of the 2019-20 Indian Super League season at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Kaloor Stadium), in Kochi, Kerala.
After opening the season with a 21 win over two-time ISL champions ATK, Kerala are now without a win in the last four games, three of which are defeats. NO wonder, Kerala are 2nd from bottom heading into this match. Head coach Eelco Schattorie is certainly feeling the heat and if the results don't improve, his own job may come under serious threat.
FC Goa, meanwhile, suffered season's first defeat in the last round following a 0-1 defeat against Jamshedpur FC. The Guars slipped to fifth on the points table but could finish the round at the top of the table if they beat Kerala by four clear goals in the match.
