Last season’s table-topper FC Goa take on former champions Chennaiyin FC in round 7. Watch ISL 2020-21 live!
Despite a major overhaul that saw them rope in a new head coach along with a number of international players, FC Goa have looked comfortable in ISL 2020-21.
With two wins, two draws and a loss from their five games so far, FC Goa are placed fifth on the points table.
Spanish striker Igor Angulo might not be as direct as Ferran Corominas was for the Gaurs until last season, but the 36-year-old has ably filled in his predecessor’s boots and is the leading scorer in ISL 2020-21 with six goals so far.
Jorge Mendoza has also proved to be a threat in attack while Lenny Rodrigues and Edu Bedia have stepped up the task and have been ruling the midfield for FC Goa.
However, it’s their defence that FC Goa will have to address ahead of the match. Watch FC Goa vs Chennaiyin FC live along with other ISL fixtures.
The central defensive pairing of Ivan Gonzalez and James Donachie are yet to gel well and it’s showing on the team’s performance too.
It is this weakness that Chennaiyin FC will look to exploit when the two face off at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda.
Chennaiyin FC have had a topsy-turvy ISL so far. After a quality start that saw them beat Jamshedpur FC, they seem to have hit a roadblock with two losses and two draws that followed.
Placed eighth on the ISL points table, the two-time champions will be eager to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.
