Mohammedan SC vs FC Goa: building up
The game is scheduled for a 6:00 PM IST kick-off on Sunday, September 29, 2021, at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan (VYBK).
It will be LIVE streamed on the addatimes app. It will also be broadcast LIVE on the Sony sports network on their Sony Ten 2 SD and Sony Ten 2 HD channels.
The Black Panthers would want to repeat their heroics from 2013 when they last won the prestigious title, in New Delhi. The local supporters, who have backed them strongly in their last two encounters would also hope for the same. Mohammedan Sporting had a convincing 4-2 victory against FC Bengaluru United on their way to the final. All eyes will be on star players Marcus Joseph, Brandon Vanlalremdika and Nikola Stojanovic, who have been exceptional throughout this tournament and will look to make their side cross the last hurdle.
The Gaurs though, sneaked into their maiden Durand Cup finals after a narrow 7-6 victory after a sudden-death tie-breaker over Bengaluru FC (BFC). They have remained unbeaten in this tournament so far. However, FC Goa will miss important players like Brandon Fernandes, Glan Martins and Seriton Fernandez, who are all on India duty. Muhammed Nemil and Devendra Murgaokar will be the key.
Murgaokar is also in the race with Mohamedan’s Marcus Joseph with both being the top goal scorers in this tournament, with five goals each and the final game to go.
