    Key Players

    Naorem Mahesh Singh (East Bengal FC)

    Naorem Mahesh Singh is one of the most developed Indian attackers lately, having already scored once in this campaign. His gameplay on the flank and ability to create goal-scoring opportunities make him a definite offensive threat for the Gaurs.

    Raynier Fernandes (FC Goa)

    The 27-year-old is donning an advanced role under Marquez and has already bagged an assist in their opening game of the season. Raynier’s widespread vision with the ball at his feet always keeps the opposition’s backline on their toes.

  • October 21, 2023 16:01

    The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 action will resume after the international break with East Bengal FC taking on FC Goa at the Kalinga Stadium on Saturday, October 21, 2023.

    FC Goa secured a nail-biting 3-2 victory over Odisha FC in its previous match whereas Carles Cuadrat and his men were edged past 2-1 by Bengaluru FC in Matchweek 3. The two teams will be eyeing promising results in this game after beginning their respective campaigns fairly strongly so far.

    What’s at stake?

    East Bengal FC

    The Red and Gold Brigade have accumulated a win, draw, and loss each in their three games until now. Despite performing impressively, they need to garner more points moving forward and Cuadrat will be well aware of that being an ex-ISL champion himself.

    FC Goa

    Manolo Marquez has gotten his team playing football his way and its relentless spirit in successfully chasing the winner until the last minute against Odisha FC displayed that. Away from home, this is a fantastic opportunity for them to build on that success and not take their foot off the gas.
