Both FC Goa (FCG) and Chennaiyin FC (CFC) will be hoping to return to winning ways when it squares off in the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Fatorda Stadium on Saturday.


Goa went down to ATK Mohun Bagan due to a late penalty in the last match on Wednesday. Brandon Fernandes and Jorge Prtiz, who came on as late substitutes in that game, should make their way into the starting XIs.



Chennaiyin is winless in its last four matches and is currently placed eighth on the points table. Head coach Csaba Laszlo had mentioned earlier that midfielder Anirudh Thapa and skipper Rafael Crivellaro will be fit to start on Saturday.

Centreback Enes Sipovic and forward Esmael Goncalves, who missed the match against NEUFC, were back in training but it remains to be seen if they will be involved in the matchday squad against Goa.


Here's how the two teams could line up.
