FCG Vs CFC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Top of the table awaits an empathic and rampant Goa side today.
After being trounced and lambasted by everyone they faced off against this season, Chennaiyin went for an overhaul of their team to rope in Own Coyle as the side’s new manager. And it’s worked wonders for the side with team seeing fresh life being infused in their wavering season with a massive influx of confidence.
Although the side are still in 8th place in the points tally of the ongoing edition of the Indian Super League, the fact that they are unbeaten in their last four encounters with the two wins and two draws clearly exults the side’s rejuvenation. And they’ll be looking to continue their revival come today’s impending encounter against Goa, a match will will serve as a true test of their revitalisation.
Up against second placed Goa, Chennaiyin will be well aware that not succumbing to a defeat today will be a massive testament to their reinvigoration. For Goa meanwhile, today’s contest comes bearing with it the prize of moving into the pinnacles of the points tally with even a draw sufficing enough to take them all the way into first place.
The side are on a three match winning spree at the moment with the previous tie seeing them open up and cut apart Odisha to register a comprehensive 3-0 win to their name. It was their fifth win of the season, seeing them tally up the 18 points from 9 outings and find themselves sitting in second place ahead of today’s travails.
“We face a fantastic team. FC Goa are at the top of the table on merit. For me, they are the best team in the country, the table doesn’t lie. They have more points than anyone because they have quality. We respect them but do not fear them,” said Chennaiyin’s coach Coyle.
“I said after the match that we need to improve on our mistakes and we are working to try to improve and be 100% for the next game,” said Lobera. “I think, with the new coach in Chennaiyin, it’s possible to see some changes. Chennaiyin play with more intensity and a good balance of offensive and defensive. It’s not an easy match for sure,” Sergio Lobera spoke on when talking about what Goa were expecting from the encounter.
