FCG vs CFC Dream11 Match Preview: With a big challenge in front of them, FC Goa (FCG) will want to make use of all the home advantage as they look to overcome the 4-1 deficit that they endured in the first leg of the semi-final against Chennaiyin FC (CFC). Saviour Gama’s crucial away goal for Goa could have a big role to play later tonight, while Chennaiyin FC will just need to be disciplined at the back as they could then make way to the finals of the Indian Super League (ISL)
Date- Saturday, March 7
Kick-Off- 7:30 PM (IST)
Venue- Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, Goa
Hugo Boumous and Brandon Fernandes’ absence in the first-leg due to injury didn’t at all work in favour of FC Goa. However, with the midfield duo back in training, both Boumous and Fernandes are expected to straight away be named in the starting eleven. As a result of that, Manvir Singh and Len Doungel will be settling for the bench. Edu Bedia who left for Spain due to personal reasons is also back in the squad which strengthens Clifford Miranda’s options in midfield.
No injuries or suspension for Owen Coyle as his side. After an underwhelming start to the season, Chennaiyin FC’s resurgence has been one of the hot topics of discussion in the ongoing campaign. With Chennai functioning as a well-oiled machine, the head coach should persist with the same elven that squared off in the 4-1 win in the first-leg. Nerijus Valskis, Andre Schembri and L Chhangte should continue as the front three, with Rafael Crivellaro, E Vansapaul and Anirudh Thapa being prominent options in midfield. Eli Sabi, Lucain Goian, Jerry Lalrinzuala and L Renthlei are likely to be the back four.
