Kerala Blasters are fast sliding on the table and everyone connected with the club have every reason to be nervous ahead of the game with FC Goa. The two teams met each other at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in a bid to shake off their recent woes. After having suffered back-to-back losses, both teams have had a significant setback in their efforts to top the Indian Super League table.

Kerala Blasters FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Kerala Blasters have been relatively better at home

The team has scored over 1.5 goals in three of the last five home games

Reasons to be fearful

Kerala Blasters have gone through five consecutive losses

The team has been defensively woeful of late

Kerala Blasters were top of the table only a few weeks ago. Now, the team has slipped to a shocking fifth-place on the back of three consecutive defeats in the Indian Super League. Kerala Blasters had been immensely superior on home soil but even that record has been hit badly following the big loss against Punjab. It is a testing time for Ivan Vukomanovic and his team. The presence of many players still on the treatment table is likely to keep the pressure on Kerala Blasters.

Star man – Dimitrios Diamantakos

Dimitrios Diamantakos continues to be the leading scorer for Kerala Blasters with eight goals and two assists. The club continues to suffer immensely because of a lengthy injury list with key players like Adrian Luna still unavailable. Diamantakos will continue to be a big asset for the team in this match.

FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Goa still have the best defensive record in the league

Goa have managed back-to-back wins over Kerala Blasters

Reasons to be fearful

The team has been on a two-game losing streak

Goa do not score many goals on the road

Goa has back-to-back losses that have shaken confidence and momentum. The club are down to 4th place in the table. However, they are still only three points away from the top with a game in hand. Manager Manolo Márquez is likely to be cautious because of the dip but there may not be too much concern. One problem for Goa throughout the campaign has been scoring goals.

Star man – Carlos Martinez

Carlos Martinez has been the top performer for Goa this season. His five goals and his excellent record from the spot have been crucial towards keeping Goa at the top end of the table. Now, they needed the performances from Martinez more than ever.

Goa are hitting on the back of two consecutive home defeats that have shaken their bid for the title. The team now have to get ready for three away matches in the next four. Fortunately, Goa are unbeaten in the away matches this season. Given the way Kerala Blasters have been playing over the last few matches, it is likely that Goa might come off with a third consecutive victory over the southeastern state.
