FC Goa are all set to lock horns with SC East Bengal in Matchday 10 of the ISL. The face-off between the perennial contenders and the ISL newcomers takes place at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco Da Gama, Goa.

East Bengal has had a terrible start in the tournament as they remained winless in their first seven games. They registered their first victory of the season in their last match against Odisha, a team that has not won a single match so far. They struck three goals as opposed to the one by Odisha, as they comfortably finished the game on top.

FC Goa recovered from their consecutive losses against ATK Mohun Bagan and Chennaiyin FC in a spirited fashion. They clinched two straight 2-1 win with impressive performances against Jamshedpur FC and Hyderabad FC.

Igor Angulo has been the star of the show for FC Goa’s side with his poacher’s instinct in front of the goal. With his lethal movement and clinical finishing, the Spanish striker has scored nine goals in as many matches.

In a battle between eastern and western football powerhouses of India, we can expect a good exchange of attacking end-to-end play on the pitch.
