Northeast United vs FC Goa Dream11 Preview

Matchday 17 action continues in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 as NorthEast United FC take on FC Goa at the Tilak Maidan on Thursday. Both the sides are ISL playoff contenders and a win will take either team to the third spot on the standings.

Currently, FC Goa occupy the fourth position behind Hyderabad FC and have accumulated 21 points from fourteen matches. They are presently on a seven-match unbeaten streak and will aim to keep it going.

NorthEast United FC have recovered well from a drubbing against Hyderabad FC. Since then, the Highlanders have drawn one and won three in a row. One of the wins have come against league leaders Mumbai City FC. The Highlanders are fifth on the ISL standings and can leapfrog both FC Goa and Hyderabad FC with a win.

Considering the recent form of both the sides, it will be an evenly-contested tie with the potential for a high-scoring thriller.

FC Goa’s leading goalscorer Igor Angulo has been a revelation since signing for the Gaurs at the start of the ISL 2020-21 season.

The Spanish striker has played 13 matches in the present campaign, scoring 10 goals. Angulo, who is ISL’s leading goalscorer at the moment, has quickly established himself as the key for FC Goa upfront.

  • Idrissa Sylla, who is forward player. He was introduced into the game to kill time but he did show glimpses of his class with some brilliant touches and turns.
