And suddenly, Edu Bedia plays it through to Manvir but Pritam covers up for Kerala.
Three minutes added. Can Goa score another?

OFF - Sahal Abdul Samad
ON - Prasanth K
60' Sandesh Jhingan with a nasty challenge on Corominas.

53' SHOT!

We have so far seen just one yellow card, which went against Lalruatthara in the 34th minute.

Let's see what Kerala Blasters can do in these 45 minutes.
Two shots on goal and FC Goa have a 2-0 lead against Kerala Blasters in this game. A win tonight will ensure their entry into the ISL playoffs and they seem to be on their way already. Kerala Blasters have barely threatened but were unlucky to have an offside decision go against them just before Goa's first goal.
They only have themselves to blame for the second goal with Dheeraj Singh gifting the ball off Anas Edathodika's back pass to Corominas, who lets Edu Bedia take it.

The tiny Blasters forward runs across the box to beat his marker but Mourtada Fall gets a deflection off his shot and it will only be a corner.
Mandar Rao Dessai runs across inside the box but he goes into a sea of Kerala Blasters defenders. He plays it to Jackichand who dooesn't have the space to take a hit.
We've seen Courage Pekuson score goals from that spot (like that goal against Bengaluru FC).
He fires one from the same spot but this one flies above.
30' SHOT!
Good move by Goa but Lenny Rodrigues lets the opportunity go to waste with an effort that he would surely be embarrassed about.
29' The floodgates have opened in Goa and Kerala Blasters have to be careful about not conceding another.
They lost 6-1 in similar circumstances to Mumbai City but you really have to feel for Nelo Vingada and that poor decision of ruling Stojanovic offside earlier.
24' Two goals in 2 minutes!
FC Goa double their lead.
A poor back-pass from Anas and Dheeraj with a messy clearance.
Dheeraj is displaced, Corominas wins the ball but he selflessly plays it to Edu Bedia, who takes his time to slot it into the bottom-right corner from the edge of the box.
Ferran Corominas
gives Goa the lead!
And Nelo Vingada, the Kerala Blasters coach, will have a lot to complain about this.
Goa break on the counter after that wrong offside call. Brandon Fernandes drops a wonderful cross from the left to Coro, who is free to glance it in.
Anas Edathodika rushes in but can't save the day.
Neat little 1-2 there between Slavisa Stojanovic and Matej Poplatnik.

It's a similar lob to Jackichand from Pena again. Lalruatthara fails to mark Jackichand who smashes a half-volley towards the goal.
Dheeraj forced into a full-stretch dive but the ball goes beyond him and luckily for Kerala Blasters, bounces off the left post.
10' SHOT!
Wonderful lob over the entire Kerala Blasters defence from Carlos Pena, spotting that run by Jackichand Singh.
The angle is tight and Jackichand's effort into the bottom-left corner goes wide.
6' You win some, you lose some.
Brandon Fernandes breaks on the counter after winning possession from the midfield from Sahal Abdul Samad amid cheers from the home crowd. Brandon moves up but Sahal Abdul Samad catches up to him and makes no error with that wonderful challenge from behind.
3' No passage.
Mandar finds himself high up the field but he can't get past the right back Mohamad Rakip.
1' FC Goa get us underway.
All eyes on Ferran Corominas, the golden boot race leader with 13 goals.

Who will triumph in the Goa v Kerala Blasters ISL Live game tonight?
Kick-off 10 minutes away. 
Test of the Kerala might.
Nelo Vingada sees this match as an opportunity for Kerala Blasters to give their best in the last phase of the ISL.
“I also want to see through this game how our team can face the best opponents in the ISL. No doubt that Goa is better than us and the difference in points shows that, but that does not mean they will win the game,” Vingada said before the Goa v Kerala Blasters ISL Live match.
Lobera wary.
Sergio Lobera feels the threat posed by Kerala Blasters under new coach Nelo Vingada cannot be taken lightly even as they aim to qualify for the ISL semifinals.
“We are going to face a very good team that is looking different under a new coach. I’m sure that if we are not at our 100 percent and are not doing the things right, we won’t be able to take the three points. Also, if we win, we will confirm our spot in the play-offs and then try to get on top of the table,” Lobera said before the Gao v Kerala Blasters ISL Live match.

Goa v Kerala Blasters ISL Preview:

Goa will look to maintain their form in the Indian Super League (ISL) with a positive result against the buoyant Kerala Blasters at the Fatorda Stadium on Monday.

Goa have not lost in five games and they will hope to keep it up against Blasters, who come off a 3-0 win over Chennaiyin FC in the Southern Derby a couple of days ago.

That result over Chennaiyin was only the second win of the season for Blasters, who are not in the contention for a spot in the ISL playoffs. Blasters' will play freely as they don't have to put on a chase, which could make Goa's job difficult.

Goa, however, also head into this game full of confidence after virtually ending ATK's march with a 3-0 win. Ferran Corominas scored a brace with Jackichand scoring in the first minute of the game to send Goa to the second position on the table.

With 28 points in 15 games, Goa are on point ahead of NorthEast United and Mumbai City. Goa also have a game in hand and could build a healthy lead over the third- and fourth-placed sides respectively.

Ferran Corominas currently leads the race to the golden boot with 13 goals, one ahead of NorthEast United's Bartholomew Ogbeche. One positive thing about Goa's streak is that they have maintained four clean sheets in their last 4 games, something they have not managed before under coach Sergio Lobera.

Blasters' Dheeraj Singh had a stellar evening against Chennaiyin FC, denying the Marina Machans at least two goals with fine work under the bar. Dheeraj won't have it easy against Goa, who have scored 32 goals, the most by any team this season.

A lot will be expected from midfield maestro Sahal Abdul Samad, who scored his first goal of the ISL the other night against Chennaiyin. Matej Poplatnik struck a brace in the same match and will be brimming with confidence ahead of the tough test against Goa.

When and where to watch: The Live Streaming of the Goa v Kerala Blasters ISL Live match will be available on Hotstar. TV telecast on Star Sports Network. The match kicks off at 7.30 pm IST.
