In the 2021-22 Indian Super League, the 2021-22 Bengaluru FC FC will face FC Goa at the GMC Athletic Stadium, Bambolim. Sunday. Bengaluru FC reached the clash behind the unbeaten run of five matches. After being pushed to the second-bottom, the Blues began a turnaround in mid-December, which sees them now at No. 8 on the table. A win against FC Goa could take them up 16 points and two places.
The Blues have recently embraced a fun brand of football, with the last outing being rubber stamped with a 3-0 win over defending champions Mumbai City FC. Marco Pazzioli is excited about Prince Ibara’s new goalscoring form. Its physicality, strength and air capability make Bengaluru FC dangerous from set-piece conditions. He has scored 2 goals on corners this season. Three of the four goals scored by the Cong striker were headers.
Full-back Roshan Singh’s breakout season is also underway. The 22-year-old already has five assistants to his name. One hero needs one more to become the most Indian supporting provider in the ISL season. Interestingly, 3 of Ibara’s 4 goals came from Roshan’s assist.
The last time the two sides netted, FC Goa won the game 2-1 at the same venue. Bengaluru head coach Pezaiuoli is confident of a repeat. “We learned from our mistakes from the first game. We’ve got some good momentum now and our players are motivated to do well, “said the German strategist.
FC Goa head coach Derrick Pereira praised Bengaluru FC. “They have changed their design and style of play. They will be a tough side to beat. “
Gaur is not experiencing the best results on the field. They have failed to win their last two games – both against opponents at the bottom of the league table. Their first win in the middle week of the season by gifting SC East Bengal only added salt to their wounds. FC Goa has played 12 matches, winning only 3. He ranks 9th in the table with 13 points in his kitty.
“It is true that things are not going according to plan but now we are going into sports with a different mindset. I believe miracles happen, “Pereira said, still hoping to reach the semifinals.
Lacking a sting in the final third has been FC Goa’s Achilles heel. They have the lowest goal conversion rate of all teams (7.6%). However, they have attempted the most shots so far this season (184) and the second-highest shot / match (15.33).
