FC Goa will play Kerala Blasters at the Fatorda Stadium on January 22 in an effort to end a losing streak. In the current Indian Super League (ISL), the Gaurs have played hot and cold, failing to win any of their last four games. They appear to have a lot of possession, but their results have been hampered by a lack of quality in the final third.
Carlos Pena’s men are stuck in a rut because of their defensive weaknesses. FC Goa is currently sixth in the standings with 20 points, but teams like Bengaluru FC and Chennaiyin FC are getting closer to them. As a result, they need to win against the Blasters to stay in the top six. The Gaurs had to settle for a point against NorthEast United the previous time around.
Although Pena’s crew will undoubtedly be dissatisfied with the outcome, the team that finished in the bottom half put in a determined effort. However, Sunday’s match at the Fatorda presents a chance to recover. In the meantime, the Kerala Blasters are returning from a break of two weeks.
Since Mumbai City defeated them by a score of 1-4, the break would have given them time to evaluate their performance. However, they will hope to reclaim their form after an excellent run prior to their game against the Islanders. They would have 28 points and a chance to avoid Odisha FC and FC Goa with a victory at Goa.
Watching this fixture has always been exciting. Additionally, the two sides’ tactical battle may be intriguing. The FC Goa defense may be exposed by the Kerala Blasters, who will enter this game as slight favorites.
Prediction: FC Goa 1-2 Kerala Blasters FC
|FC Goa||Stat name||Kerala Blasters FC|
|46% (6)||Wons||62% (8)|
|46% (1)||Draws||62% (1)|
|46% (6)||Defects||31% (4)|
|1.62||Goals per game||1.69|
|1.46||Goals lost per game||1.46|
For the past two games, Carlos Pena has used the same starting lineup, and he may use it again. However, the manager may turn to Alvaro Vazquez to deliver against his former club because Noah Sadaoui has not scored a goal.
Marko Leskovic has been ruled out of action for Kerala Blasters due to an injury. Ivan Vukomanovic might try to get rid of some of the players, especially on defense, after they lost to Mumbai City FC.
