CFC vs FCG Dream11 Prediction 2020 | Chennaiyin FC vs FC Goa

The first leg semi-final match of the Indian Super League features 2-time champions Chennaiyin FC who will be hosting the ISL League Winners FC Go at the Marina Stadium in Chennai. This will be a rematch of the 2015 ISL finals, which ended with Chennaiyin winning their first-ever ISL title.

While Goa have by far been the most convincing team, Chennaiyin have been the surprise package of the season. The South Indian side was languishing in the bottom half of the table at the start of the season before a surprise turnaround saw them go unbeaten in the last eight games.

It has been a dream season for FC Goa. They were awarded the first-ever ISL League Winner’s Shield for finishing first in this season’s ISL campaign. Moreover, the Gaurs also won a direct qualification to the Asian Champions League group stage, becoming the first ISL team to achieve the feat.

And it was all well-deserved, given the side’s ruthlessness in front of goal this season. In fact, FCG have scored a staggering 46 goals this season, the highest goal-tally ever recorded. Having been unlucky to lose out in the finals twice (in 2015 and in 2018-19), the Gaurs will be looking to have one better this time. Can they be third-time lucky?

In the way of Goa will be the 2-time Champions Chennaiyin. The side almost finished 3rd to set up a meeting in the sem-finals with fellow 2-time champion club ATK with a 1-0 lead over NEUFC. However, the Highlanders scored two and CFC had to return home with a solitary point and a fourth-place finish. Chennaiyin would need to show character on Saturday, having lost to Goa twice this season. Both were entertaining goal fests, with the second one ending in a 4-3 classic.

Chennaiyin’s rise from the bottom of the table to qualify for the semifinals has been impressive. If they can go on to win the ISL from here on, it will be talked about for years to come.
