GAME PREVIEW

FC Goa will be looking to quickly get back to winning ways after a 1-4 defeat against Jamshedpur in their last match. Coach Sergio Lobera tagged the result as their 'worst defeat' of his stint and will be expecting his players to get back to their best against a Delhi Dynamos side who are winless this season. 

Ferran Corominas served his one-game suspension after picking up a red card for his rash tackle of Marko Stankovic and the striker's return to the first-team will be a big boost for the Gaurs. With six goals and four assists from four matches, he is already leading the charts for both figures. 

Ahmed Jahouh and Edu Bedia have been excellent but without a focal point in attack, they struggled to make an impact against Jamshedpur FC. The former is already Gaurs' highest passer this season and adds some solidity to Lobera's midfield and defence which normally keeps a high line.

Meanwhile, Josep Gombau's Dynamos team thrives on a high block and effective wing play. Lallianzuala Chhangte is a crucial component of his tactics and has proved to be lethal in parts this season. 

A fighting 2-2 draw against Jamshedpur in their last match gives them hope of picking up their first win sooner rather than later but facing FC Goa at their own turf would not have been the perfect scenario to do it.

Goa's biggest strength is Delhi's biggest weakness - a goalscorer. Andrija Kaludjerovic has cut an isolated figure up front and looked clueless whenever he was provided with the required service. Despite his poor form in front of goal, he has started all but one game for Dynamos.

Daniel Lalhimpuia, the man who replaced the foreigner against Jamshedpur, couldn't use his chance to full effect. Delhi have only managed to score five goals from their seven games.

While FC Goa have struggled with goalkeepers, Dynamos' brightest spark this season has been in between the sticks. Spaniard Francisco Dorronsoro has put in a few incredible shifts in goal and will demand constant vigilance when his defence comes up against Coro and co. 

FC Goa are fourth on the table having played two games fewer than the Lions. That is a damning stat for the now ninth-placed Dynamos and makes this a must-win clash for them.
