When FC Goa takes on Bengaluru FC on Thursday, February 23, they will travel to the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in an effort to secure a playoff spot. The Blues have won their last seven games and only given up five goals, which is an incredible run. Because he has figured out a way to get the best out of his team, Simon Grayson has been the architect of their revival.
It is undeniably an impressive feat that the hosts, who were eliminated in January, have qualified for the playoffs with one game remaining. However, the task is not finished. They will try to end the season on a high note and, more importantly, finish third or fourth in the standings so they can play in the playoffs at home.
Meanwhile, Odisha FC was defeated by Jamshedpur FC on Wednesday, February 22, giving FC Goa a chance at survival. Consequently, a victory in Bengaluru will almost certainly establish their playoff position. This is a rare opportunity, and Carlos Pena will be confident that his team can rise to the occasion and seize the lifeline.
However, their recent record is not encouraging, with two defeats and a draw in their last three games. The Gaurs have conceded eight goals in their three games, but the attack is certainly flowing. However, the defense has been weak. In addition, Pena acknowledged that pressure caused his team to collapse, which is not a positive sign.
This game has the potential to be a huge success because both teams have nothing to lose. The Gaurs will be determined to finish in the top six, while the Blues have a lot of self-assurance. The teams’ tactical battle looks like it will be intense, but FC Goa may win because they have more at stake.
Prediction: Bengaluru FC 1-2 FC Goa.
With six victories from 12 games, Bengaluru FC has been by far the most successful team against FC Goa. The Men in Orange have won three games while sharing the spoils three times.
Total games: 12
Bengaluru FC wins: 6
FC Goa wins: 3
Alan Costa of Bengaluru FC will be absent from the final league stage game for personal reasons. Grayson may start Parag Shrivas and star striker Roy Krishna over Bruno Ramires and Sunil Chhetri now that both have served their suspensions.
Pena, on the other hand, has a full roster from which to choose, and FC Goa does not face any injuries. Redeem Tlang could take the place of Devendra Murgoakar in the attack, and Hernan Santana could get the nod ahead of Edu Bedia.
