FC Goa, on the other hand, have had very few hiccupsthis season. They have been near perfect so far in the Super Cup, having defeated two-time ISL champions ATK 3-1 in the Round of 16 stage, while they triumphed over Jamshedpur FC 5-1 in the quarters.

However, three of their key players are set to miss out on this match, after they were sent off following a bust-up with three other Jamshedpur FC players in the tunnel during half time.
