Goa and Kerala Blasters meet in the second game of the day in the Indian Super League on Sunday. The sides have identical records with two draws and a defeat this season, but will either get their first win of the campaign at Fatorda Stadium?

Goa Form


Last season's table-toppers are still searching for their first win of the new season, with Goa boasting two points from three games courtesy of two draws and one loss.

Goa came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Bengaluru in their opening game as Spanish forward Igor Angulo scored twice in three minutes to rescue a point.

Goa were made to pay for the sending off of Redeem Tlang as they lost 1-0 to Mumbai City in their second game. A 95th minute penalty from Adam Le Fondre condemned Goa to defeat.

It was another stalemate in their last game as Goa came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with NorthEast United. Idrissa Sylla opened the scoring from the penalty spot for NorthEast, only for Angulo to level three minutes later.

Goa Team News


Redeem Tlang remains suspended after he was handed an additional game ban following a review of his sending off.

Igor Angulo will be key for Goa after three goals in as many games. Centre-back James Donachie could come back into the defence after being rested for the draw with NorthEast United.

Kerala Blasters Form


Kerala Blasters lost 1-0 to reigning champions ATK Mohun Bagan in the first game of the new season, but have since picked up points from draws in their latest two games.

Kibu Vicuna will have been disappointed his side gave up a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with NorthEast United. Goals from Sergio Cidoncha and Gary Hooper (penalty) put Kerala in command, only for the Blasters to concede a late equaliser. 

It was another point in the last match as Kerala drew 0-0 with Chennaiyin. Goalkeeper Albino Gomes was the hero for Kerala as he saved Jakub Sylvestr's penalty in the 74th minute.

Kibu Vicuna has yet to find the magic formula in attack and Australian forward Jordan Murray could be set for his first start of the season alongside Gary Hooper.
