The FCG vs FCPC match preview –
One of the league leaders of the Indian Super League in FC Goa will be looking to extend their dominance as they host FC Pune City on Sunday.
FC Goa have been clearly and comprehensively been the best team in the league this year. They are scoring goals for fun and putting teams away. In three games they have played they have won twice with only one draw. It is a good record for a side who wants to make into the playoffs. An early momentum into the season is one of the most important things a team can have, and that is exactly the case with The Gaurs.
Meanwhile, their opponents in FC Pune City couldn’t have had a more contradictory start to the season. They have lost twice already and none of the changes that coach Miguel Portugal has made since arriving has made sense. He took his time in bringing on the club legend in Marcelinho and these are the kind of egotistical decisions that are causing FC Pune City to lose its confidence. They were one of the teams who made it into the playoffs last year, and the fact that they are the last placed team in the league, speaks volumes of how disastrous the internal conflict must be.
