Goa’s title challenge is slowly evaporating with the team dropping down to 4th in the standings following the recent dropped points against Mumbai City. The point against Mumbai is a welcome relief for a team that had suffered three successive Indian Super League defeats. Meanwhile, East Bengal have been as inconsistent as any other team around them in the table. The team has failed to stitch together back-to-back victories since January.

FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Goa have scored in consecutive games

The performances of Mohammed Yasir are a big boost for the team

Reasons to be fearful

Goa have not managed a victory in five

The club are looking very short on confidence

Goa were leading the table not too long ago, but they find themselves in a position where even finishing in the top four could be an unlikely prospect if the fortunes do not improve fast. The six-match run without a victory has put the team in a precarious position. Coach Manolo Marquez has never been beaten at the hands of East Bengal in his coaching days, but the 55-year-old is likely to be nervous coming into the match. Sandesh Jhingan is out because of a knee injury.

Star man – Mohammed Yasir

Mohammed Yasir has been a breath of fresh for FC Goa in the last few matches. Manager Manolo Márquez has been able to extract a string of top performances from the 25-year-old, who has scored in back-to-back matches. Yasir is just one goal away from matching his best-ever tally in the Indian Super League campaign.

East Bengal Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

East Bengal put up a decent fight against Odisha

East Bengal have scored in four successive games

Reasons to be fearful

East Bengal have lost three of the last four

The team has conceded over 1.5 goals in back-to-back away games

East Bengal will be worried about the upcoming run of games that have the potential to be disastrous for the team. There are two away matches in the next three outings for East Bengal and playing away from home has not been the team’s forte so far this season. Coach Carles Cuadrat has done fairly well against Goa in the past with only one defeat in seven outings. However, he is yet to get a win past his compatriot Marquez.

Star man – Cleiton Silva

Cleiton Silva remains the top scorer in the East Bengal squad with seven goals in the league. Even though he was not on the scoresheet against Odisha, the Brazilian has the potential to make a big impact in the forthcoming games.

Goa have gone through a terrible run but they may make use of the upcoming match against East Bengal to get the crucial victory that gets them back on track. Goa should be able to capitalise on the misfortunes of East Bengal in away matches. The positives like Yasir’s form should be sufficient to help Goa get a slight advantage.
