FC Goa (FCG) will play Kerala Blasters FC (KBFC) in match 109 of the Indian Super League (ISL 2021-22) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Sunday.
Ivan Vukomanovic's Kerala Blasters has already qualified for the semis after Mumbai City FC succumbed to a 2-1 loss against Hyderabad FC on Saturday.
If Mumbai had managed to win, then a win against Goa would have been imperative for the Blasters, but having already qualified now, the outcome of this match will have no effect in the top four of the league standings.
