ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, FC Goa vs Odisha FC: Noguera, Ortiz, Gonzalez Score as Goa Beat Odisha 3-1

ISL 2020-21 Highlights, FC Goa vs Odisha: FC Goa move back into the top four with a 3-1 win over Odisha FC. Alberto Noguera, Jorte Ortiz and Ivan Gonzalez scored for the Gaurs as they get back to winning ways.

Odisha FC’s goal machine Diego Mauricio has pulled one back for the Kalinga Warriors from almost a nothing cross. Dheeraj struggled to deal with the cross and the ball fell for the Brazillian at the far post and he simply guided the ball in. Earlier, FC Goa increased their lead on the 26th minute after Jorge Ortiz chipped the ball over Arshdeep’s head to finish off a brilliant counter-attack. Alberto Noguera opened the scoring for the Gaurs on the 18th minute of the match from a well-worked move. Ivan Gonzalez floated in a ball from the left flank and Noguera lept high and head it past Arshdeep.


It has been a bright start for FC Goa against Odisha FC. They have been on top of the Kalinga Warriors right from the word go and created a number of half-chances if not chances thanks to the 60% plus possession of the ball they have had so far. Noguera has come the closest to score from both teams.

FC Goa will hope to stop their run of draws and strengthen their playoff chances with a win when they face laggards Odisha FC in the Indian Super League on Wednesday. When the ISL season was halfway through, few would have looked past FC Goa while predicting the possible semifinalists. However, six draws later, they are just about hanging on.

When they take on Odisha FC at the Fatorda Stadium, Juan Ferrando’s men will be vying to break the unwanted streak. Goa are currently lying fourth, level on points with fifth-placed Hyderabad and only two points adrift of Bengaluru FC in sixth.

Ferrando knows that the game against bottom-dwellers Odisha is their best chance of getting full points among the three games that remain. However, he will have to deal with multiples absentees. “We have some injuries. But I’m not scared because we have a very good squad,” Ferrando said on the eve of the match.

“The problem is that we only had two days to prepare. But about the players, I am not upset because we have a very good squad and everybody can help the team,” he added. Goa have made a habit of coming back to salvage points after falling behind, something they also did in their last-gasp draw against Chennaiyin FC.

No team has won more points after conceding the first goal than them. Still, Ferrando must be wondering why his team only wakes up after going behind. “At this moment, our mentality is to continue working,” he said. “It is not possible to change more details. I hope these draws in the future will be wins.” On the other hand, Odisha are trudging along from defeat to defeat. The season’s stats make for some dismal reading for them. They’ve lost 10 matches, the most by any team and kept just one clean sheet, the least by any side.

It has been eight games since they last tasted a win. Their last three games have seen them concede a whopping nine goals. However, their interim head coach Gerald Peyton sounded confident ahead of the contest against Goa.

“I’m going to stay with the facts,” he said. “Goa are a good passing team. I know how they will play against us. I know their tactics. Without giving tactics away, we will play a certain way. It’s going to be important that we start straight from the off.”
