Chennaiyin FC will take on FC Goa in the Indian Football League on Saturday. While Goa are at a stronger position in the points ladder, having accumulated 23 points in 16 matches, Chennaiyin are reeling at the number eight place with 17 points in 17 matches. It would be an interesting battle as Goa will not want to lose momentum at this stage while Chennaiyin aim to be of relevance in the season.
Chennaiyin might look to make a few tactical changes in relation to their formation or making some smart substitutions but it is difficult to foresee too many changes to their starting XI. They should have all their key players available for selection though.
FC Goa might just stick to the same XI after a 6-goal thriller against Mumbai City. No known injury concerns in their camp either.
Expect an attacking brand of football from Goa who must be on a high after taking a point from the clash against table-toppers Mumbai City FC. Taking confidence from that game and given the way they have played in the season, Goa might have more chances of winning the match than Chennaiyin who succumbed to yet another defeat in their previous fixture. While Chennai have not been able to close out matches in which they have looked good, Goa would look for nothing but three points in this encounter.
