FCG vs CFC Dream11 Prediction 2019
The 4th match of the 6th season of the Indian Super League features FC Goa and Chennaiyin FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Goa. It’s always a treat when these two teams face-off, as it is the highest-scoring fixture in the ISL history with a total of 45 goals between them. Another interesting fact from the fixture featuring these 2 massive clubs is that there hasn’t been a single goalless draw in the 13 times that they have faced each other.
After finishing 2nd in the previous season, the Gaurs are ISL’s highest-scoring team, having scored 154 goals in 88 games. In the same number of games, they rank 5th in the league for total clean sheets kept. As a unit that has a marauding attack, the Gaurs have also improved their defending to become one solid squad. They have reached the finals a couple of times and have an attacking football DNA which they will be looking to exploit even more this season to try and win the ISL for the first time.
Goa has retained the services of head coach Sergio Lobera for the third consecutive season, under whom the Gaurs have scored 84 goals, which is the most by any side under a coach. With a squad that is familiar with each other and the manager’s expectations, Goa go into the first game with a slight edge over their opponents.
The 2018-2019 season for the 2-times champions was an embarrassment as they finished 10th in the league. With a major overhaul of the squad, Chennaiyin has arguably one of the strongest defences in the ISL. They will be looking to make a strong statement in their first game of the season by trying to defeat the Gaurs on their home turf. However, their star striker Jeje is out injured. Chennaiyin will be attacking the Gaurs with a completely new look forward line with the signing of wingers Lallianzuala Chhangte and Dragos Firtulescu and Nerijus Valskis as the striker.
