Corminas Magic Game lead to FC Goa’s Win
Corominas gave his team a good early start by striking a goal in the fifth minute of the game. FC Pune City didn’t lag behind and made it equal with a brilliant goal at top right-hand corner.
FC Goa took no time in making a lead again as Corominas made a well-worked move. Yet again, after a few minutes, Coro sprung the off-side trap thus laying the ball for Jackichand who smashed the ball into an empty net.
This basically looked like a game of some weak defences by FC Pune City.
While the first phase of the scheduled game saw attacks from both sides thrive as chances kept coming, but then it was team Goa who just kept on extending this lead. The second half started frantically as Alfaro and Marko Stankovic came close to reducing Pune’s arrears in various instances.
FC Goa throughout kept frustrating the visitor team by keeping a strong hold on the ball which kept the FC Pune City starved from the goals.
Both the host and visitor team finished the game with 10 men after Diego Carlos and Corominas were shown a red card.
FC Pune City has decided to part ways with coach Miguel Angel Portugal as they have managed to score just once in three games. Pradyum Reddy has been appointed as an interim coach of the team.
