FCG Vs NEUFC Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Goa’s season gets off to a howler of a start with the side yet to register a win.
From finishing in first place of the points tally in ISL 2019-20 to yet to record three points in the 2020-21 edition of the showpiece league, Goa’s season hasn’t quite gone off according to plan.
After drawing their league opener, the side failed to learn from their mistakes from that 2-2 showing against Bengaluru. Failing to address the elephant in the room, the side’s paper thin defensive setup cost them in the ensuing fixture as well with the club slumping to a 1-0 defeat against Mumbai City.
Its hardly been an ideal start from the club, one where they have failed to offer anything in either facet of the game. While its still early days in the league for Goa, the side knows it needs to stem the ever widening rot, one which sees them languishing in 10th spot currently.
FCG Vs NEUFC Fantasy Probable Winner
Up against a team which is yet to be defeated in the league, things are far from going to get any easier for Goa. They’ll be made to sweat it out on the pitch once again with the side’s winless spree set to extend as they are held to a draw.

Mohammad Nawaz from Goa will be inducted into our framework as the goal-keeper for the impending fixture. The shot stopper was responsible scramming their way away from the foregone tie with just the one goal thumped against them.
For all of Goa’s defensive vulnerabilities at the moment, James Kevin Donachie has emerged as a saving grace at the back for the club. His knowhow and acumen of the game has resulted in him emerging as the mainstay of the side’s defence, a player who has not only won challenges but tamed attacking plays as well.
The opposition meanwhile will see us opt for an entire trio from their side. Where they have the one cleansheet in two matches, goa failed to score the last time they stepped out, a narrative which favours a cleansheet for this trio.
We begin with Gurjiner Kumar who ended up with a cleansheet to his name in the side’s last encounter. The wordclass Dylan Fox and Benjamin Lambot give him company for the outing, two players who have moved in unison to close out the ball for the club.
The side’s defensive resillinace isn’t just limited to the aforementioned trio. CDM Khassa Camara has had a telling impact of the side’s defensive gameplan, a player who has broken up attacking plays with his tackles and blocks.
Federico Gallego’s attacking guile see him form the one-two of picks from the side. Goa on the other hand find representation in Edu Bedia and Alberto Noguera Ripoli, names who have controlled play for the side with their ball handling abilities.
For Goa, striker Igor Angulo Albondiga will decide which way the tie swings. Scorer of both of the side’s goals, he emerged as a focal point of his team’s gameplan with him ability to work his way past tight spaces.
The opposition meanwhile see us rope in Kwesi Appiah after his goal for the side the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The two goals for Kwesi see him captain our side while Igor is the vice-captain.
