FCG vs KBFC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
FC Goa will be looking to clinch a place in the playoffs when they host Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League regular season match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (Fatorda Stadium), in Margao, Goa, on Monday evening (IST).
Jamshedpur FC’s 1-4 loss to FC Pune City not only brought the Men of Steel to the brink of elimination, but the result was taken with open arms by the other top-4 hopefuls. One of those teams was certainly FC Goa.
The Gaurs are placed 2nd on the Indian Super League table with 28 points from 15 games and are out of reach of the bottom five teams. That means the competition comes from just one team but it can be eliminated as a win in their next encounter would be enough to settle the nerve and clinch a top-4 finish.
The form also indicates that the team can achieve more than just a place in the post-season. The newly found defensive resolution is the key to the optimism surrounding the team.
We all know what Goa can do when going forward. They may score or outscore opponents, but the swashbuckling brand of football has undone the team during some key moments. But that trend seems to change as Sergio Lobera’s team has kept six clean sheets in the last seven games.
Kerala Blasters, on the other hand, are under the new management and are looking to sow the seed for the future. David James’ era couldn’t last long and he was sacked before the winter break for less than convincing start to the season.
Under him, the Yellow Army won just once and were propping up the table. Nelo Vingada is the new boss and has already steered the club to its biggest victory of the season, a 3-0 win over Chennaiyin FC.
