Match 4 of the Indian Soccer League has another exciting clash in the offing. Goa take on visitors Chennai at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda. Coaches of both teams will be looking to start their season on a high.

Runners up from last season, Goa are a well-oiled machine under Coach Sergio Lobera. And they are equipped with the league’s most lethal goalscorer Ferran Corominas. He has a chance to win the Golden Boot for the third time in a row. And there are others like Brandon Fernandes & Jackichand Singh. Qualifying for the playoffs will be the most minimum expectation from this team.

Many were surprised with the decision to keep John Gregory at the helm once again this season after Chennai finished rock bottom last season. But they have done some rebuilding & are expected to display a better showing than last time. They have almost changed the entire foreign lineup & brought in some exciting Indian talent on board. The fans certainly expect better from the 2 time ISL Champions.

Predicted Line-ups –

FC Goa: Mohammad Nawaz, Seriton Fernandes, Mourtada Fall, Carlos Pena, Mandar Rao Desai, Edu Bedia, Hugo Boumous, Brandon Fernandes, Jackichand Singh, Seiminlen Doungel, Ferran Corominas

Chennaiyin FC: Vishal Kaith, Laldinliana Renthlei, Lucian Goian, Masih Saighani, Tondonba Singh, Dhanpal Ganesh, Anirudh Thapa, Andre Schembri, Rafael Crivallero, Dragos Firtulescu, Lallianzuala Chhangte

Prediction –
Goa seem strong on paper & will be the favourites to win this tie. We predict a 2-0 win for the home team.
