Match Preview: FC Goa vs NorthEast United FC


Arguably one of the most interesting match of the ISL 2020-21, NORTHEAST UNITED FC is set to lock horns against FC GOA.


This match will bring us flavour of two Spanish tacticians. This match is the clash between two of the youngest coach of the ISL this season.


Juan Ferrando (FC Goa coach) & Gerrard Nus ( NEUFC coach)


Northeast United has had a good start to the season registering their first win against heavyweights MCFC and drawing their last match against the blasters. They will be high in confidence as they get into the pitch against the Gaurs.


FC Goa on the otherhand played some good football but didn't get the expected results. They will surely be looking to get their first win of the season.




INDIAN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR BOTH TEAMS


Both the teams have an interesting pool of Indian players.

Looking at the NEUFC pool, Indian players to look out for are the highly talented Lalengmawia Apuia, Ninthoi the pacey winger, who caught eyes of many during the 2017 U-17 worldcup, and finally a potential glimpse of Rochharzela, highest indian goalscorer from I-League last season.

Coming to the hosts, FC Goa, the Indian players to look out for are Brandon Fernandes, Nawaz and Ishan Pandita.




FOREIGN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR BOTH TEAMS


Looking at the foreigners of NEUFC, Dylan Fox has been a wall at the back, Khassa Camara, the midfield destroyer with his Kante-esque performance lately and Kwesi Appiah, the target man who scored 2 in 2 games for the highlanders are the ones with high expectations. Fans also perhaps expect a BordoiSylla performance in the game at some point.


For FC Goa, Igor Angulo, Ivan Gonzalez and Jorge Ortiz are few foreigners to look out for.
