Chennaiyin FC will want their star forward Nerijus Valskis to continue his purple patch after scoring five goals in the last four games and standing at the third spot in the goalscoring charts. Chennaiyin will need to improve their set-piece record as well. They have struggled with dead-ball situations, both offensively and defensively, this season. Chennaiyin defence will also miss the suspended Eli Sabia.



Goa's attack will pose plenty of problems for the Chennaiyin defence. Ferran Corominas, since coming back from injury, has been in good goalscoring form and has tallied six goals already. Brandon Fernandes and Hugo Boumous will look to provide ample service to Coro but one thing coach Sergio Lobera would like to see is his team improve their conversion rate.
