Madgaon: FC Goa team, strengthened by the presence of new head coaches and new foreign players, will start their Indian Super League (ISL) campaign against Bengaluru FC here on Sunday. The new look FC Goa would like to do better this time than the previous performance which has not won the ISL Trophy even once, when it was runners-up in 2018 and 2015. But this time things will not be easy for coach Juan Ferrando's team.
Ferrando wants the club to continue playing the aggressive football he used to play under the guidance of his former coach Sergio Lobera. Ferrando said that we will continue to play aggressive football. This is the philosophy of the club and this is what attracted me in my post because I believe in this type of football.
On the other hand, the Bangalore team has won the ISL title once and would like to start with a win in which its star striker Sunil Chhetri will play an important role. Bengaluru team is a very good unit and it will prove to be a tough opponent for the Goa team. Chhetri can single-handedly change the trend of the match and defeating Bengaluru FC with a strong team would be a crooked task for any team. The team also includes veteran goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who is as important as Chhetri.
