FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Goa stand on the cusp of sealing their spot in the top of the league.
For Goa, a win in the Indian Super League today would massively reaffirm their bid to making it in the ensuing round of the league. Currently on 24 points, the three points today would take them directly into the pinnacles of the points tally, something which will massively propel the side when they face off against Kerala Blasters.
“I think from now every match is a final, for us and all teams in the same situation. It’s a very important match and we have to move step by step. For us, it is a big opportunity and a big challenge for the players and the club and we are working in this direction,” said Goa’s manager Sergio Lobera preceding the encounter.
The side were defeated 2-0 the last time around, something which increases the need for a win today. And in Kerala Blasters, they have the ideal side to rake up a much needed win on the day as well with Kerala Blasters showing how meek a defence they make for infront of vicious attacks n their 3-2 defeat the last time around.
Having kept a mere cleansheet in their matches away from their home stadium this season, Kerala Blasters are set to see their plight further today as well. They are up against a Goa side who have an 80% win rate against them, one set to further extend as Goa pummel their dwindling defence to cruise their way to a win.

FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With the likelihood of a cleansheet being extremely unlikely today given the behemoth ramifications stemming from the clash for either side, we had only one reasoning in mind when choosing our shot stopper for the day. Our pick was solely based on the goal-keeper more likely to cascade his way a slew of save point, something which alludes towards the selection of Goa’s Mohammad Nawaz.
FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Defenders
Both the defences are akin to each other with either side have shipped in the identical numbers of goals this season. However, having torched their way to 25 goals this season, the most by any side, Goa are bound to pummel Kerala Blasters on the day.
Despite this, we are getting in the two picks from Kerala Blasters with us opting for Jessel Carneiro from the unit for this clash. The quirky Vlatko Drobarov is also nailed down in our side with the player coming in at a mere 8 credits, someone who helps clear up immense funds to invest in elsewhere.
Elsewhere, we are opting for the lone pick from Goa given the magnitude of the ball they’ll be revelling in on the day, something which sees us go in for Carlos Pena.
FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Midfielders
Goa might have regressed in form at the moment with just three goals in their last three encounters but it’s not due to a lack of effort from the unit. They have hammered in the 44 shots in those three matches, something which is a clear epitome of why they are the most formidable attack in the league.
We begin with Hugo Boumous from the side, someone who has put the four goals past his opposition this season. Ahmed Jahouh, Brandon Fernandes and Lenny Rodrigues are also going to earn a place in our side as we opt for an all Goa unit in this docket.
This is a trivalent which composes of all the attackingly inclined players, names who are going to intricately going to sniffle Kerala Blasters’ wavering and waning defence on the day.
FCG Vs KBFC Dream11 Strikers
Goa’s leading goal scorer with the 8 goals to his name, Ferran Corominas is going to be an instant selection for us for this tie. Elsewhere, having scored 12 of their side’s 18 goals in between them this season, we are opting for seven goal man Bartholomew Ogbeche and Raphaël Messi Bouli with the five goals in his kitty.
