FC Goa 4 Bengaluru FC 3

An incredibly exciting game comes to an end in Fatorda, Goa as Bengaluru FC's hype train get derailed after two wins at the start of the ISL season. Controversies in the game involving the BFC keeper who was sent off for using unnecessary force on Coro. Coro, was the man of the match for his hat-trick that made the difference for the home side. Miku grabbed a brace but it wasn't enough for the away side. Still, BFC pulled back with two goals to make it 3-3 but Coro's third goal put the game out of the newbies' hands.

90+1' - It's all happening in Goa!! Arana is through on goal after a through-ball but Abhra Mondal rushes out and gets his hand on the ball outside the box. The ref only shows a yellow card. That should have been a red as it was a clear scoring chance for Arana.

FC Goa are all set to face off against the highflying Bengaluru FC, in what promises to be a thrilling encounter at the Fatorda Stadium in Goa, tonight.fc
 
The Goans have been on a mixed bag of form under coach Sergio Lobera, winning their first match 3-2 away at Chennaiyin, while they lost their second encounter 2-1 at Mumbai. One key area where FC Goa seem to be losing out on, is the poor form of their goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani, who could be held accountable for both the goals they conceded against Mumbai in their last match.
 
Bengaluru, on the other hand, have hardly put a foot wrong in their first two games, having won 2-0 against the Mumbai City FC, and 4-1 against the Delhi Dynamos, both at home.
 
This match brings about a new aspect for both the teams, as Goa are set to play their first home match, while Bengaluru will play their first away game of the season.
