Brandon Fernandes, who is the third highest assister in the ISL, after the match:

"Feeling good. Had a tough time in pre-season. I am getting better.

"I am happy to get the assists so yes, happy with it.

"We are a new team with new players so we are trying to get the combinations rights. But it is going to take some time, we are trying different things in training and coach is also trying us in different positions and looking at us in training. We are now looking at the next game.

"I have always try playing as No.10. The coach wherever he wants me to play, I am happy to contribute."

Juan Ferrando after the game:

"Today for me, the one point was super important. It was difficult to find space. Okay, after three games, players were tired. One team was attacking and the other was defending.

"No, no. I continue working. The pressure is only for me, the team is working. This is their first time playing together and it will take a bit of time to get together.

"We need to get over their line of defence but they are not in hyper mentality and clear ideas to penetrate. They don't have the legs at the moment.

"I prefer face-to-face with Gerard and not talk about it here.

"I don't know it was a penalty or not."

Nov 30, 2020 21:38 (IST)

Gerard Nus after the match:

"I am so happy with the players because they fought so much. This is their third game and I am happy. This is out style. We came here to play Goa and they were champions of the league last season. Anyone who comes here will have to run and fight.

"We ran and fought so much, you need changes (about using all the five substitutions). Every player has my support as they show effort in training and the games. Now we have to think about the recovery.

"Gallego will be ready for next game. He felt a little bit of groin, which can come with intensity and kind of competition here, so we have to take care.

"Basically, I don't know (about the altercation with Juan Ferrando on the sidelines). I think he was interested in joining NorthEast United as he was coming to our side."

Nov 30, 2020 21:31 (IST)

FULL TIME! FC Goa failed to make better penetrations into the box in the second half and have to settle for another draw and have just two points to show from three games in the ISL so far. NorthEast United FC will be the happier team with the scoreline as they have five points to show from three games. Idrissa Sylla's first half penalty and Igor Angulo's 43rd minute equaliser remain the only goals in the match.

Some really unsavoury things on the sidelines! Noguera pushes Gerard Nus as he goes to collect the ball and Nus falls over. Ferrando laughs at Nus and claps towards him. That is not a good look and shows the pressure Goa and Ferrando are under!

OFF THE POST! Alberto Noguera is given way too much space by the NorthEast United defenders and he goes for goal and he is so unlucky to just hit the post.

NorthEast United lose the possession in Goa's half and Noguera crosses it towards Chothe on the left flank, who was clear but Gurmeet comes off his line to clear the ball and it goes straight to the other side, where Nawaz has to do the same.

Goa are trying to get cheeky against the NorthEast defence but it might do them a bit better if they try harder to break through with better movement. Brandon and Ortiz have been doing well so far. Noguera is good but is slowing down a little too much at times.

HALF TIME! NorthEast United FC got the lead in the 40th minute after Idrissa Sylla converted a penalty into the second time of asking but Igor Angulo equalised for FC Goa three minutes later with a deft touch. FC Goa and NorthEast United FC were pretty much equal in all respect except the possession. With NorthEast getting the lead, Goa pushed a lot harder and got a goal back. It will be interesting to see how the teams are tactically put up in the second half.

ISL 2020-21 Live Score, FC Goa vs NorthEast United FC Latest Updates

FC Goa have not started well in terms of points on the board despite playing a good brand of football. In their season opener, FC Goa showed great character to come from two goals down to earn a draw against Bengaluru FC. In the second game, however, they went a man down and ended up conceding late to lose to Mumbai City FC. NorthEast United FC, on the other hand, have had a bright start with an unexpected win against Mumbai City FC and a come-from-behind 2-2 draw against Kerala Blasters.

Goa need a morale-boosting win on Monday against a team as organised as NorthEast United FC. They will need all the pieces in the puzzle to fit in. Starting from Igor Angulo up front to midfield in Lenny Rodriguez, Edu Bedia, Jorge Ortiz, Brandon Fernandes, Alberto Noguera, Princeton Rebello and Seimenlen Doungel among others to the defence led by Ivan Gonzalez and James Donachie. It will be interesting to see if coach Juan Ferrando decides to play two strikers to help Angulo or decide to field youngsters like Phrangki Buam, Ishan Pandita or Makan Chothe.

NorthEast United boast of a well-rounded unit and will be a tough opponent to counter. Their head coach Gerrard Nus was proud of the character that his team showed against Kerala Blasters. Nus would be hoping that the team's foreign players pull their weight once again and strikers Idrissa Sylla, a former Anderlecht and Queens Park Rangers player, and former Ghanaian international Kwesi Appaiah, play their roles to perfection. The rest of the Indian players will also need to step up their performances to ensure that the team remains in the top four positions.
