FC Goa vs Kerala Blasters FC
Kerala Blasters take on FC Goa later today at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, Goa, in what is a must-win game for both the sides. These are two of the bottom-placed teams in the league. The Kerala side is seventh, having just managed to score five points from as many outings. Goa is placed worse. They are last with four points from five matches. The good thing about them is that they have been improving as the tournament progresses. Kerala Blasters have stitched an unbeaten run of three matches, Goa FC have been unbeaten in the last two matches.
Prediction: FC Goa have looked the better side. But their habit of making defensive blunders has been costing them crucial points. It is hard to outplay the Goans, but it is easy to exploit their occasional carelessness. Blasters do not have a predatory striker in their ranks. A draw looks a probable result. But FC Goa have the edge, as is evident from their 3-1 H2H record against Blasters.
Atlético de Kolkata vs Mumbai City FC
The Kolkata side host Mumbai City FC tomorrow at Rabindra Sarobar Stadium, Kolkata. The first match of the season between these two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in Mumbai. Both the sides have scored eight points. But Mumbai City FC have played one game more. By that token, the Mumbai side needs a win more badly here to surge ahead. Interestingly, Atlético de Kolkata have not lost a match yet in this season. They are the only unbeaten team in the fray. However, they have not looked their dominant self in this season and have snatched late draws in a couple of matches.
Prediction: All three results are possible, especially in the angle of online betting. But a draw is a bit more possible.
Delhi Dynamos FC vs FC Pune City
Delhi Dynamos will host FC Pune City on October 27, after a rest day on October 26, at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi. Dynamos are easily the best passing side in the tournament. The lack of good finishing touch is what pegs them back. They have lost only one of their five matches. But they could win only one match as well. Pune City FC are perhaps the most defensive teams in this season. Delhi Dynamos have never lost against Pune City, winning three and drawing one.
Prediction: The performances of these teams so far point to yet another draw. But Delhi Dynamos have been improving in the goal-scoring department. Check out the odds of online betting for a Delhi win. It is worth a gamble.
