ISL - Indian Super League
ISL Preview: Atletico de Kolkata Vs FC Goa
Initially, Atletico de Kolkata had been one of the standout performers of the Indian Super League, but their performances have been very disappointing of late. Hence, they are in an uncomfortable position, where they need to win or at least a draw against one of the most in-form team, FC Goa to seal a playoff berth, when they play later today.

Kolkata has only registered a single victory in their last nine games, which is appalling after winning three out of their first four games. To the contrary, FC Goa has been in terrific form winning their last four fixtures.

FC Goa would be keen to add a fifth straight victory and go into the playoff berth as a confident unit, while their opponent, Kolkata would be eager to break their winning streak. Though, it may not be an easy task for Kolkata, but they are going to give it their all for a win.

On paper, it is Kolkata, which resembles a stronger unit, but when it comes to on-field performances, it is Goan players who stand all and play good and consistent football.

Kolkata would depend on the key service of Luis Garcia, who has been a consistent performer. But other players such as Firku, Borja Fernandez, Arnab Mondal, Climax Lawrence need to lift the team as well.

As far as Goa's players are concerned, Robert Pires and Clifford Miranda have helped their team come up with such good form. The team collectively needs to deliver the goods and help the team reach the third position in the league.
