Pune had proved to be yet another worthy team that went kaput in the journey. Currently, Pune stands at 8th position and had managed to pull off 2 wins and 2 draws from 11 fixtures leading to 8 points in their scorecard. Hopeless Pune will be looking forward to getting an entry into the Super Cup later this year. Marcelinho will be looking forward to making a comeback after an injury after being absent from their fixture against Kerela. While Ashique still remains doubtful in this fixture as well.
While Pune’s opponents are entirely different from what is being projected. Goa has been one of the strongest sides in the league having to score 15 goals from first 5 matches. Although their last two fixtures turned out to be failures, this time around Goa will be looking forward to turning the ship into their port. Goa is 4th on the table with 17 points. They have 5 wins and 2 draws from 9 matches, one game less than the other teams. This will help them move up on the table with a win in this crucial match. Goa will be looking forward to retaining the same line-up after a long break.
Pune: Kamaljit Singh (GK), Sarthak Golui, Matt Mills, Sahil Panwar, Adil Khan, Jonathan Vila, Nim Dorjee Tamang, Iain Hume, Marcelo Periera, Nikhil Poojari, Robin Singh.
Goa: Muhammed Nawaz (GK), Seriton Fernandes, Mourtada Fall, Chinglensana Singh, Carlos Pena, Ahmed Jahouh, Lenny Rodrigues, Brandon Fernandes, Edu Bedia, Jackichand Singh, Ferran Corominas.
My PlayerzPot XI:
Goa is likely to give their full potential to win this one and Pune’s defence would not be an obstacle for Goa.
PlayerzPot Predicted Score: Goa 2-1 Pune.
