ISL 2020-21 Chennaiyin FC vs FC Goa: Chennaiyin playoffs hope to hang by a thread as Goa looks for a place to cement the playoffs; Watch CFC vs FCG live streaming online on Hotstar-

Since the loss to Chennaiyin FC in December, FC Goa has expanded their unbeaten streak to nine games in the ongoing Indian Super League. On Saturday, Goa will again face Chennaiyin at the GMC Bambolim Stadium. But this time, Goa will try to bolster their playoff berth with a win against the struggling Chennaiyin side.

For Chennaiyin, their hopes of making it to the playoffs look bleak, but they are not out of the running yet. Three wins in the last three games could very well open an opportunity for the top four, although much will depend on the results of other teams. For now, Chennaiyin is scheduled for a do-or-die match on Saturday. If they lose or draw, they will be excluded from the playoffs.

Chennaiyin comes back after a 0-1 defeat to Jamshedpur. An own goal in the 90th minute saw Csaba Laszlo’s side lose. The Romanian coach condemned missed opportunities that plagued his team all season. With only 11 goals in 17 games, Chennaiyin is the worst attacker in the league.

“We had a great chance of winning the game against Jamshedpur. They only had one shot on target, but unfortunately we conceded an own goal at the last minute and lost a game. This is very painful because we had good chances to score and win the game, ”said Laszlo.

Now the focus is on scoring nine points from three games and for that Chennaiyin will have to find goals by converting their chances. Chennaiyin has the second best in the league in terms of shot and third in creating opportunities. But they have failed to turn most of their opportunities.

“We have to take it as it is and we have to focus on the next three games. It is very important that we play against Goa and play for the club and show that we are still a good team, ”added Laszlo.

Goa eye playoff spot

While Goa has remained unbeaten for the past nine games, they have only won three, losing 12 points in the process. But with a last-minute equalizer in the final game, Juan Ferrando’s side will try to bounce back and turn the tie into a win. They are still in the running for first place and if they win the last three games they can seal a new AFC Champions League slot. However, for that they also need other competitions to run their course.

With 24 points from 16 games, Goa is in third place in the ranking. But in five draws in the last five games, that’s not what Ferrando hoped for. By now, their playoff berth should have been sealed. A win against Chennaiyin will bring them closer to a top 4 finish.

“This team works hard in training and in competitions. Most importantly, they have a strong personality and always want to win. I am very happy because if the score is not good or if we are in a difficult moment, they keep going and they show a strong mentality, ”said Ferrando.
