Kerala Blasters will aim to bounce back from their drubbing in Mumbai when they travel to the Fatorda Stadium to face FC Goa on Sunday (January 22).
Before the 4-0 defeat against Mumbai City FC, the Blasters were on an eight-game unbeaten run. They played an exciting brand of football, with the likes of Adrian Luna, Dimitrios Diamantakos, and Sahal Abdul Samad being involved in their goal-scoring exploits.
The game against FC Goa, however, will prove to be a tough challenge, considering their struggles at the Fatorda. Historically, Ivan Vukomanovic’s side has been on the wrong end of the scoreline nine times, while winning just four games. A victory on Sunday, however, could boost their playoff opportunities with six games left.
The Gaurs, on the other hand, are on the back of a 2-2 draw against NorthEast United. A direct approach by the Highlanders posed a few problems, but Carlos Pena will be disappointed with just a point. They are now winless in their last four games and will hope the tides can turn around.
FC Goa have a strong home record, having won four of their six games. They will look to utilize the advantage against a Blasters side who come into the match on the back of a two-week break.
Nonetheless, this fixture will be a tight tactical battle, as both sides have a defined style of play. When these sides last met, the Blasters defeated FC Goa 3-1.
