FC Goa: Season preview, fixtures and squad

Here is FC Goa's complete season preview, squad and full list of fixtures for the 2018 Indian Super League.

FC Goa's Ferran Corominas Telechea (blue) controls the ball during the Hero Super Cup 2018 semi-final match against East Bengal FC.   -  Biswaranjan Rout

The tale of FC Goa is a fascinating one. In four editions of the Indian Super League, The Gaurs haven’t been able to win the trophy, reaching the semifinals twice, the final once and even managing to finish at the bottom of the table!

After finishing eighth in the third season, the side made a stunning comeback to soar into the semifinal in the fourth edition. Sergio Lobera’s team enjoyed a stellar run and shattered goal-scoring records by netting a whopping 42. However, there was a catch to that; the side also conceded 28 goals, the most among the top-4 clubs! The side has displayed a very enterprising form of attacking football since its inception under the tutelage of Brazilian legend Zico, but its defensive troubles have often let the team down.
