Head to Head
Goa lead the head-to-head 10-7 since the inception of the Indian Super League in 2014. There has also been one draw between the sides.
Goa won three of four clashes last season - 3-0, 4-3 and 4-2. But it was Chennaiyin who progressed from their semi-final on aggregate after a 4-1 win in the first leg.
Goa's wins also include victory over Chennaiyin in the Hero Super Cup in 2019.
Goa's two-match winning run was ended on Tuesday when they lost 1-0 to ATK Mohun Bagan. Juan Ferrando's dominated possession and were left to rue two penalty decisions at either end.
Last season's league leaders found their best form with a 3-1 win over Kerala Blasters and 1-0 victory over Odisha following a slow start to the season.
Goa had start the season with a 2-2 draw with Bengaluru before losing 1-0 to Mumbai City and drawing 1-1 with NorthEast United.
Chennaiyin have gone four games without a win since starting the season with a 2-1 against Jamshedpur.
Csaba Lazlo's side drew 0-0 with Kerala Blasters, following a missed penalty from Jakub Sylvestr, before losing 1-0 to Bengaluru and 2-1 to Mumbai City.
Chennaiyin looked the most likely winners on Saturday but had to settle for a share of the points from a 0-0 draw with NorthEast United.
Goa's Spanish winger Jorge Ortiz was the one to drop to the bench against ATK Mohun Bagan. With Juan Ferrando operating a rotation policy, he should come back into the starting line-up.
Chennaiyin defender Enes Sipovic sat out the last game with injury. Brazilian midfielder Rafael Crivellaro was left on the bench but could be handed a recall.
In Igor Angulo, Goa have a goalscorer who can prove the difference. The Spaniard's six goals is double what Chennaiyin have managed this season and he can fire Goa to victory.
