FC Goa lost their previous ISL encounter against fellow top-four hopefuls ATK last week. Despite losing for the third time this season, they comfortably sit 3rd in the league with 24 points after 13 games. FC Goa have been the most prolific side in the league, scoring 25 goals already. Ferran Corominas has once again been the talisman for the Gaurs. The 37-year-old Spaniard has scored eight goals so far in the league. Corominas has combined well with French midfielder Hugo Boumous.
Kerala Blasters have been relatively inconsistent in the league, failing to a string a series of good results together. After an impressive victory against ATK, they lost to fellow strugglers Jamshedpur FC last time out. Kerala Blasters are currently 8th in the league with 14 points after 13 games. With 3 wins and 5 losses so far (Draws 5), Kerala will need a huge upturn in fortunes to make the top-four. Bartholomew Ogbeche has been the primary source of goals for Kerala. The Nigerian striker has scored seven times in 11 appearances so far.
The two last met during December 2019, producing a rather eventful game. FC Goa fell to 10-men early in the game after Mourtada Fall was sent-off. With Kerala heading for a victory, Lenny Rodrigues scored an injury-time goal to secure a point for the Gaurs.
