In Match 97 of the Indian Super League (ISL), FC Goa will host bottom-ranked Odisha FC on February 17, 2021, from 19:30 (7:30) PM IST. Ranked fourth in the ISL standings and in contention to make it to the elimination rounds, FC Goa's three vital points can make a massive difference in the ISL. FC Goa had a chance to claim three points in their previous fixture, but were held by a resilient Chennaiyin FC to a 2-2 draw.
FC Goa have a chance at hand to grab three points against Odisha FC, who were handed a 1-3 loss by NorthEast United FC, who are ranked fifth on the ISL points table and also have 24 points. This is an opportunity that FC Goa cannot miss out on as a draw or loss could see NorthEast United FC claim the fourth spot.
Striker Igor Angulo has been crucial in front of goal for FC Goa as the forward has scored 12 goals in 16 fixtures so far and can also lead the race for the golden boot. ATK Mohun Bagan’s star striker Roy Krishna currently leads the race for the golden boot in the ISL 2020-21 season, scoring 13 goals in 17 matches played so far. However, the hosts need to work on their defence, as they have conceded 21 goals so far and Odisha FC could look to spoil FC Goa’s run.
The hosts will look to rely on their star striker Igor Angulo once again to find the back of the net and ensure all three points are claimed. Alberto Noguera has also been vital in creating chances for the midfield and the strikers as FC Goa like to bring in numbers in the opposition’s half.
