Kerala Blasters vs FC Goa, ISL 2019-20: Match Preview
The two-time finalists Kerala Blasters have not been able to flourish much in the ongoing season so far. Following the return after the latest international break, the Kochi-based team lost 1-0 to Bengaluru FC in the away encounter.
FC Goa, on the other hand, were left embarrassed at home by Jamshedpur FC and their midfielder Ahmed Jahouh was also sent off after he saw a red card in the 72nd minute.
However, coming into the match, Goa should be feeling hopeful for a win against a Kerala side that are missing some of its key players and have not yet managed to figure the winning combination.
“It is amazing to play in Kerala. I think all professionals want to play every match in such a beautiful atmosphere. Players get motivated to play in this situation. I want to play every match in this kind of atmosphere.” FC Goa coach Sergio Lobera said in his pre-match conference.

Mario Aques is also out due to injury and will remain so for an extended period. Sahal Abdul Samad, however, can get a start after missing in the last game.
FC Goa: Lobra will have a headache choosing his playing eleven as three of his main players Len Doungel, Hugo Boumous and Ahmed Jahouh are suspended. Also, Ferran Corominas is yet to regain complete fitness.
Since the forward line will possess a sore look, given most of the players will remain on the sideline. The Goa coach will thus hope that his defence hold the fort against a potent Kerala attack.
