Match Preview

‘’Our Aim is to Get on the top 4 in the Hero Isl 2016 points table and Kerela Blasters is a task in Hand’’ Said the FC Goa Manager. FC Goa’s defense has improved a lot since the last two games as major contribution in the defensive duties were done by Gregory Arnolin with his crucial tackles and interceptions. Another good news for FC Goa is that the Brazillian marquee player Lucio who played as a substitute in the last few minutes of the game against Mumbai City FC is fit to play and the FC Goa Defense gets rock solid.

Couldn’t sign the Brazillian striker Leo Moura would be a matter of concern for Zico but instead, Julio Ceasar brings on the pace in the Gaurs attacking department. However, Challenging Kerela Blasters Defense is not so easy and their organized gameplay is a headache for the opponents admired Zico.

Talking about the Men in Yellow Kerela Blasters. The Defense is stiff and invincible as Cedric Hengbart, Aaron Hughes, and Sandesh Jhingan is giving a hard time to the opposition strikers. Also, the Chemistry in the Defense seems spot on as Kerela Blasters has just conceded 2 goals in their last 3 ISL fixtures.

Moreover, the Newcastle United striker Michael Chopra is outstanding in positioning and controls the Game pairing with Mohammad Rafi. “It was not a Conscious decision to Focus only on the Defense while building the team. I think we are Solid and Well organized, but we do not have enough goals’’ said the Kerela Blasters manager Steve Coppel. It’s a matter of fact that Kerela Blasters lack that goalscoring streak and are struggling to score. Let us see if Rocky Chopra and Rafi could increase their goals tally.
