With an attacking brand of football, FC Goa aim to begin home campaign against Mumbai with a win

FATORDA: The football action returns to Nehru Stadium Fatorda, as FC Goa are all set to play their first home game of their Indian Super League campaign against Mumbai City FC, on Wednesday.

The Gaurs have continued with their attacking brand of football under Coach Sergio Lobera and has made a great start to their season five campaign. With four points from their two games, Sergio Lobera’s men now play hosts to Mumbai City FC. 

The Gaurs would have been disappointed to walk away with a 2-2 draw in their opening fixture against NorthEast United FC but displayed strong credentials with a smashing 3-1 victory away to defending champions Chennaiyin FC.

"We always try to play an attacking brand of football and the idea is to win the game. That's the most important thing. If you're asking me if we are going to attack less so that we don't concede, the answer is no. The idea is simple which is to try and attack like we did last year, " said Lobera, who will be keen to make amends after FC Goa failed to beat Mumbai City in the last three fixtures.

Mumbai City come into game on the back of an impressive 2-0 win over FC Pune City. Jorge Costa’s men had a stuttering start to their campaign with a home defeat against Jamshedpur FC followed by a 1-1 draw at Kerala Blasters.

"Goa have a very good team and a very good coach. It's easy to understand what they want to do on the pitch. I will not speak of individual players but we are going to have a difficult game for sure,” said Costa.
