Punjab look to pull off another big scalp and make the most of their excellent momentum when they welcome Goa to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi. Punjab have been picking up excellent results – especially in away matches – while Goa have just recovered from a long bout of winless matches with a 1-0 success over East Bengal. This match is crucial for the objectives of the two teams.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Punjab have looked excellent in front of goal

The team has been counter-attacking very well

Reasons to be fearful

Punjab have lost three of the last four home games

The team has conceded seven goals in the last two home matches

Punjab might be sitting outside the top six places of the Indian Super League but they have done very well over the last couple of weeks. The team certainly have their sights set up on the top six with Bengaluru just a point ahead in the table. Punjab have better momentum than any other team in the last six. Only Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City have managed more points than Punjab in the last six games. Staikos Vergetis’ team also have no injury concerns.

Star man – Wilmar Jordan

Wilmar Jordan has had a decisive impact in the last couple of weeks for Punjab. His goal against NorthEast United has taken him to five for the campaign. The 33-year-old has picked up goals in two of the last three home matches for Punjab. His physical presence will also be crucial for the team to relieve pressure off the defensive line.

FC Goa Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Goa have just picked up a first victory in six matches

The team also managed a first sheet since early February

Reasons to be fearful

Goa have still not recovered completely

The team still looks devoid of chances and goals

Just when it seemed that Goa were going to get completely out of the running for the title, the team managed a crucial win over East Bengal to keep themselves in the picture. Manolo Márquez’ team remain just four points away from the top with a game in hand. However, they have not looked completely convincing in the last few matches. Goa had one of the solid defences at the start but the team will relish a first clean sheet in six games.

Star man – Noah Sadaoui

Noah Sadaoui is the joint top scorer in the Goa squad after hitting a winner against East Bengal in the last match. Even though the 30-year-old has now entered the scoresheet for the first time since December, there is a lot of positivity to expect more good performances out of the Moroccan midfielder.

Goa are coming on the back of a crucial victory but the team may not be able to pull off another positive result – especially on the road. Punjab might have struggled for home results but the team continue to come up with a string of positive results at home. Punjab have an offence that can trouble any opponent on their day and Goa are not particularly being well at the back.
