It was Chennaiyin Fc who broke the deadlock on the 13th minute as Jakub Sylvestr showed some quick feet to score the goal. However, their lead stayed for exactly six minutes as Igor Angulo scored from the penalty spot in his second attempt after his first one was cancelled as players encroached before the penalty was taken. The match remain tied in the first half as both teams failed to make the most of the chances. The second half saw a similar amount of intent from both the teams as they looked for that winning goal. It was the Marina Machans who again went ahead in the match after a mix-up between FCG goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh and the defenders lead to the goal. When it looked like CFC will go home with all three points tonight, Ishan Pandita, Fc Goa's man of the hour scored a beautiful goal to deny CFC the much-needed win.

FC Goa have equalised! Chennaiyin FC's lead stayed for exactly six minutes. Igor Angulo is the man who scored the leveller for the Gaurs from the penalty spot. The Spaniard was forced to retake the spot-kick after his first effort was ruled out as players encroached the penalty area before the kick was taken. Earlier, Jakub Sylvestr handed CFC the lead as he showed some brilliant footwork to wriggle past FCG defense and slot it home past Dheeraj Singh.

Making their chances count has been Chennaiyin FC's bane this Indian Super League season but they will get one final shot to remain in contention for a playoff spot when they take on FC Goa on Saturday.

If Chennaiyin lose against FC Goa, it will be curtains for the two-time champions. Even if they win, qualification for play-offs still depend on multiple permutations working in their favour. But at this point, coach Csaba Laszlo knows that all his team can do right now is win whatever games they are left with. They are currently at eighth spot with 17 points from as many matches.

"We had a big chance to win against Jamshedpur. They had just one shot on target but unfortunately, we conceded an own goal and lost a game at the last minute. This is very painful because we had good chances to score and win the game," said Laszlo.

"But we have to take it how it is and we have to concentrate on the next three games. It is most important that we go out against Goa and play for the club and show that we are still a good team.."

Chennaiyin need to find goals from somewhere. They are second in the league in terms of shots and third in terms of chances created, but somehow they have contrived to score the least number of goals. They haven't scored in ten of the 17 games they have played.

For coach Juan Ferrando, the target is simple — win and take a giant step towards the play-offs with just three games left. FC Goa are at third spot with 23 points from 16 matches. Ferrando will no doubt be buoyed by the team putting up a brave fight to hold leaders Mumbai City to a 3-3 draw in their last game.

"This team is working hard in training and in matches," he said. "The most important thing is, they have a strong personality and they want to win all the time. I'm very happy because when the score isn't good or when we are in a difficult moment, they keep going and display a strong mentality," he said.

"I remember in the first game against Chennaiyin, we had only two days to prepare. The team was tired. Now the players may be tired but the mentality is totally different. We are more prepared. Sometimes we get it wrong in transitions but it is better in the last few games."
