At a time when everything was going right for Goa in the Indian Super League, the side were dished out their first defeat the last time around to open up a deficit between themselves and the teams in the annuls of the points tally. The 1-0 defeat suffered against Jamshedpur saw the side plummet into fifth place, a position they’ll be looking move up from and resume challenging for a spot in the pinnacles of the league standings.
With the two wins, one defeat and two draws from 5 matches, the 8 points Goa have garnered till now have come massively due to the immaculate goal scoring from the side has been in. They have ended up finding the goal on 10 occasions, the second highest in the league, a figure which will give an already agonising Kerala Blasters outfit immense jitters ahead of today’s clash.
Currently in 9th place in the points tally, for the home side, this season is turn out to be a woeful and diabolic one. Their fiasco has only gotten worse proceeding their opening encounter in the league with the side failing to have tasted success after winning in that encounter with three of their ensuing four matches seeing them slump to defeats to leave them with a sorry 4 points.

FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Although Goa have shipped goals till now, they are up against a side who have scored just once in their last four matches. This is the ideal match for Mohammad Nawaz to immerse himself in a cleansheet, something we envisage being a very realistic likelihood to see us go ahead with him for this one.
FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Defenders
The aforementioned narrative sees us make a duo from the visiting side our first pick in this docket of our side. Kerala Blasters have been horrid in attack, scoring just thrice in five matches and Carlos Pena and Mourtada Fall are not only entrusted with the job of bolstering up our backline due to a cleansheet but their attacking capabilities as well.
The two defenders can easily divulge in their repertoire of coming up with goal contributions as well, something which makes the duo pristine value for this one. Elsewhere we have gone in with a partnership from the home side as well with the team set to try and refrain Goa from scoring and approach this one with an extremely defensive gameplan.
With all the onus being handed over to their defence, this might just be a match where Kerala Blasters’ Ruturaj Gaikwad and Jessel Carneiro can curb Goa in their attacking sorties to see us imbed the two in our Dream 11 setup.

A major reason was Goa thriving and flourishing in attack has been down to Brandon Fernandes, a player who has boosted his side’s attempts to navigate past defences.

Mandar Rao Dessai comes in as well from the side for this one while our singular selection from Kerala Blasters coming in the identity of their most formidable goal scoring threat in the form of Sergio Cidoncha.
FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Strikers
Goa’s leading scorer with three goals till now, Ferran Corominas was always going to be an instant selection for us for this encounter. The player has been in resounding touch, undoubtedly the focal point of his side’s attacking gameplan and up against a side immensely low on confidence, he looks set to add to his ally today.
Manvir Singh will be accompanying him for this tie whilst from the home side we are moving in with their leading scorer, two goal man, Bartholomew Ogbeche for this encounter.
