FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

The team are yet to lose this season

Goa have the best defensive record by a significant margin

Reasons to be fearful

Goa have struggled for goals in recent games

There has not been a single standout goalscorer

Goa were able to jump to the top of the table after a crucial home victory over the Kerala Blasters. However, the team had to work extremely hard for this third consecutive league victory. Manolo Márquez will be pleased about the overall defensive display from his team, but they are starting to show signs of weariness in the final third. In the last four matches, Goa have scored over 1.5 goals only on one occasion – against a defensively poor Chennaiyin team.

Star man – Victor Rodriguez Romero

Victor Rodriguez Romero has been the top player for Goa so far this season. He has come up with two goals and three assists from his seven league appearances this season. The midfielder came up with a crucial assist in the win against Kerala Blasters – taking his goal involvement to 5 so far this season. The 34-year-old has been averaging 1.25 goal involvements per 90 minutes.

Mumbai City FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

The team made a strong return to the ISL with a big win over Bangalore

Mumbai are still unbeaten in the league this season

Reasons to be fearful

Mumbai have struggled in away matches even from last season

The team has to live up to a strong head-to-head record against Goa in the past

Mumbai City made a convincing return to the ISL – after their AFC Champions League disappointments – with a big win over Bengaluru in the last match. Even though the team are still five points away from the top spot, they have several games in hand over teams above them. Mumbai are three points behind the Kerala Blasters but they have three games in hand over the team from the south.

Coach Petr Kratky does not have a great deal of injury problems in the squad but he will be missing Alberto Noguera for the upcoming fixture.

Star man – Jorge Pereyra Diaz

Jorge Pereyra Diaz further added to his league tally in the game against Bengaluru after scoring from the penalty spot. The striker is the top scorer for Mumbai City by a significant margin after having picked up six goals so far this season. The goal against Bengaluru has also helped Jorge Pereyra Diaz move to the top of the scoring charts for the season.

Mumbai City have an outstanding record against Goa. The table leaders have been able to navigate many of the recent tricky matches, but they are likely to come up short against the visitors. Mumbai City have the ISL 2023-24 top scorer in the ranks and this can make a big difference in the final third. Goa have struggled for goals in recent games and their watertight defence will be tested to the maximum in this game.
