FC Goa are yet to lose a single match in 2023-24 ISL.

Odisha FC is going to face FC Goa in their next match of Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24. The match is scheduled on 9th of February and will be played at Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar. 

The match promises to be a captivating battle as both teams vie for the top position in the points table. Despite Odisha FC currently leading the table with 30 points from 14 matches, a victory for FC Goa would enable them to surpass the Juggernauts based on goal difference.

The Stakes 

Odisha FC

Sergio Lobera’s team is on the brink of experiencing a remarkable season. The team has maintained an unbeaten streak in the 2023-24 ISL, winning their last 10 matches. Following the midseason break, they secured victories in both of their recent clashes. In the first match, they triumphed over Kerala Blasters FC with a score of 2-1, while in the second match, they defeated Hyderabad FC with a convincing 3-0 score-line. 

Due to a hectic schedule in a short period of time, the coach intended to rest some key players in the last match. However, it is certain that they will come back strongly in the upcoming match, which holds significant importance for both teams in the context of the league.

FC Goa 

The Gaurs have emerged as the most dominant side this season, remaining undefeated in all matches played so far. Out of the 11 league matches, they have emerged victorious in eight and settled for a draw in three. Holding the top position on the table until the mid-season break, a win in their upcoming match would once again propel them to the leading position. 

Notably, Manolo Marquez’s team has exhibited a solid defensive performance throughout the season, conceding a mere five goals in the 11 matches, showcasing their exceptional class and prowess at the backline.

Injury & Team News

There are no injury concerns for either team. Both sides are aiming to field their strongest lineup to confront their opponents and emerge victorious in the match.

Roy Krishna has displayed exceptional form this season, having scored 10 goals in 14 matches, making him the top scorer in this season’s ISL. His performance as a forward has posed a significant threat to the opposition. Although he appeared subdued in the recently concluded Kalinga Super Cup, he quickly rebounded in the ISL, scoring three goals in the last two games. 

His partnership with Diego Mauricio and Isak Vanlalruatfela up front has been instrumental in disrupting the opposition’s defensive line, making Odisha a formidable force this season.

Carlos Martinez (FC Goa)

The forward appeared self-assured in the recent encounter against Hyderabad FC, netting two consecutive goals. Currently holding the sixth position among the top goal scorers in this season’s ISL, he has amassed five goals from 11 matches. His presence in the forward line not only bolsters the team’s offensive capabilities but also serves as a guiding influence for the younger players, a characteristic that has been evident in previous matches. 

His impact is advantageous for both the team and the individual players. He is undoubtedly a player to keep a close eye on during the upcoming match against Odisha FC.
