Goa are facing a big fight to stay in the hunt for the title and they welcome Bengaluru to the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Margao. Bengaluru are in an uptrend and they could see themselves in the top six before going into the break. Bengaluru do have a decent away record against Goa and they should be quietly confident ahead of this encounter.

FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Goa scored three goals in the last match

Goa have scored over 3.5 goals for the first time in 2024

Reasons to be fearful

The team has conceded over 2.5 goals for the second time in four matches

Goa have only managed one win in the last five league matches

Goa are fourth in the standings coming into the match but they are in danger of dropping down the table if results do not improve. After having only managed one victory from the last five matches, Goa are struggling to hit the heights of their early season form. A victory in the upcoming match could put Goa ahead of Odisha in the table. Coach Manolo Márquez has done exceptionally well against Bengaluru with only one loss in the last nine outings.

Star man – Carlos Martinez

Carlos Martinez is back on the scoresheet after getting an equaliser in the match against Punjab. The attacker is now up to six goals for the campaign after scoring for the first time since early February when he managed a brace against Hyderabad.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Bengaluru have managed back-to-back victories

The team has lost only once in away games against Goa since 2018

Reasons to be fearful

Bengaluru have lost four of the recent five away games

The team has not kept a clean sheet in any of the away matches this season

Bengaluru have jumped up to a solid position ahead of the remaining few regular-season matches. Even though the team will be away from home in two of the next three matches, Bengaluru are pushing to get into the top six places for the first time this season. After the recent win over Chennaiyin, the team came close to getting into the top six but a victory in the upcoming match could finally secure the dream.

Star man – Javi Hernández

Javi Hernández has scored in back-to-back games for Bengaluru and he has been influential in recent results. The Spaniard has moved up to 5 goals for the campaign and he has been one of the few consistent players for the club since his move from Odisha.

Bengaluru are playing quite well in recent matches and they should be a formidable opening for Goa, who have failed to kick on from the recent victory over East Bengal. Even though the team did very well to get a hard-fought draw against Punjab, the confidence is not there within Goa. Despite having been poor in away matches throughout the campaign, Bengaluru might come up with a surprise.
