IFL Match Prediction: FC Goa vs Chennaiyin FC

FC Goa will be out to cement their top spot at the Indian Football League when they take on Chennaiyin FC on the Boxing Day at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. The match will kick-off at 7:30 PM IST. Goa are sitting comfortably at the top spot with 18 points from nine games, while Chennai are eighth with just nine points in hand. It will be an interesting tussle between these two teams.

Goa are coming off a Commanding 3-0 win over Odisha in the previous game. Star forward Ferran Corominas and Brandon Fernandes got themselves on the scoresheet. FC Goa’s forwards will look to fire against Chennaiyin FC ‘s defense. Goa have the second-best attacking record this season (18 goals). Ferran Corominas scored twice against Odisha to take his goals tally to six goals from five games. Despite being away from action due to an injury, Coro is the second-highest scorer, two goals away from leader Roy Krishna of ATK. He will look to continue his stunning form against the Chennai.

Chennaiyin FC, on the other hand, secured their second victory of the season under their new manager Owen Coyle. Coming out on top against a rusty Kerala, the two-time champions also revived their chances of making it to the top four. Their front three Andre Schembri, Nerijus Valskis and Lallianzuala Chhangte were back in action against the Blasters. Chhangte was the stand out performer for Chennaiyin FC as he wreaked havoc by making threatening runs behind the defense. He also netted his first goal for the club since signing in the summer.

Coyle will hope that the team will continue their winning momentum against the table topper FC Goa.
