CFC vs FCG Match Preview

Chennaiyin FC went up a different gear in thrashing promoted side Punjab FC 5-1 in their last game at home. Connor Shields scored in either half after Ryan Edward’s 24th-minute opener with Rafael Crivellaro converting from the spot and substitute Vincy Barretto putting the last nail in the coffin. Although Marina Machans fail to keep a clean sheet for consecutive games, they will be joyous of finding the finishing touch to their attacks that they missed hugely. With back-to-back wins after three losses to start the 2023/24 ISL season, Owen Coyle feels his side has turned their season around and has now got the momentum to aim for the playoff spots. The challenge becomes stiffer for them now as third-place FC Goa, yet to lose a game visits the city. However, the home side will have less to fear about after the manner of their win and will look forward to providing competition against tougher opposition. A hat-trick of victories will pull them up to sixth position and stop FC Goa from returning to winning ways and to the top of the ISL table.

Without Noah Sadaoui and Brandon Fernandes, FC Goa missed the spark to get them over the line against Bengaluru FC in the goalless stalemate at Kanteerava. Their inspiring pair will sit out the next game as well which is a concern again for Manolo Marquez. The draw also put curtains to their 100% start to the campaign and 24-game scoring streak in all competitions. Incidentally, the last time they failed to score a goal was also against the Blues. The Gaurs will blame Gurpreet Singh Sandhu’s excellent showing between the sticks for that even though their first clean sheet at the venue is a positive to look at. Jay Gupta was again in the thick of the action but failed to score with the chances fell to him. FC Goa will hope to fire again in their third consecutive away game in the ISL to Chennai having scored 52 goals in the meetings with Chennaiyin FC, the most against a single opposition in the league history. Also being the highest-scoring fixture ever, Marquez's side will hope to extend their superior winning record having also secured a 4-1 victory in the last meeting in the Durand Cup.
