FC Goa will look to hold on to the momentum against a lowly Bengaluru FC when they cross swords in the 2021-22 Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Saturday. The game is a 21:30 hrs kickoff and promises to be a mouth-watering contest with both teams on the wrong side of the table, but not exactly in the same frame of mind.
Goa snapped a three-game losing streak to record their first win of the campaign against SC East Bengal in their previous encounter. The Juan Ferrando coached Gaurs won 4-3 in a topsy-turvy game with Alberto Noguera netting a brace.
Goa have been shaky at the back but in the last match, the attack looked sharp with Edu Bedia joining the ranks and Jorge Ortiz also finding his mojo.
Bengaluru, on the contrary, lost their previous two games and haven’t looked in good shape.
Bengaluru lost to Hyderabad FC 0-1 in their last game and are placed ninth in the points table, one above Goa who are in tenth position.
Barring Cleiton Silva, the Blues have lacked the spark they usually have.
