FC Goa finish match day 2 on second position in Group E

FC Goa defense were once again strong enough to grab a point against lacklustre Al Wahda side. The UAE club was held to a goalless draw by the debut Indian club in the Group E clash on AFC Champions League game.

The Gaurs went in to the game with their similair starting eleven which they had against Qatari side Al Rayyan. Ishan Pandita played up front as the lone striker for the Goan club. While, Romario and Oritz were supporting him from the flanks.

Al Wahda came in to this game after a defeat against Iran’s Persepolis FC. Tim Matavz started the game for the Abu Dhabi club as the number nine, while Matar was playing right behind him from the attacking midfield position.

Al Wahda showed intent from the start to score and take away the early lead. However, Juan Ferrando’s side were brave enough to pass the ball around the defensive area with ease. Dheeraj Singh was kept on his toes by the pacy wingers of Al Wahda.

Goan midfielder Glan Martins was on top yet again for the Gaurs against the UAE Pro League club. Brandon Fernandes had good link-up play with Glan Martins in the middle of the park. Fares Jumaa got the first real chance to test Dheeraj Singh on goal, but went straight in to hands of the keeper.

Ismaeil Matar proved to be a constant threat for the Goan defense, who threaded beautiful balls to split defense. Tim Matavz did take a shot before half-time against Dheeraj, but couldn’t beat the shot-stopper. Al Wahda displayed a clear intent at the start of second-half via Lucas Pimenta’s header, which went wide.

The Indian side had a great opportunity when Jorge Ortiz played a wonderful ball behind the defense to Brandon, who provided a decent cross inside the box. But, Devendra Murgoakar, who came in for Ishan Pandita couldn’t send it past Al Shamsi inside the box.

It was Dheeraj, who stole the show in closing stages of the game especially when Matar took charge of the free-kick. Matar’s wonderful free-kick was palmed away by Dheeraj to keep the scoreline to 0-0. FC Goa are now second in the Group E after Persepolis defeated Al Rayyan 1-3 in Goa on Saturday.

  9. Thanks for the something totally new you have revealed in your article. One thing I would like to touch upon is that FSBO interactions are built as time passes. By launching yourself to owners the first weekend break their FSBO is announced, prior to the masses start off calling on Friday, you make a good link. By giving them equipment, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become the ally. By using a personal interest in them and their predicament, you develop a solid connection that, oftentimes, pays off as soon as the owners opt with a representative they know along with trust — preferably you actually.

  10. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

  11. A few things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is the fact that there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must match the technical specs of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no os issues, replacing the storage space literally normally takes under 1 hour. It’s one of the easiest computer system upgrade methods one can imagine. Thanks for giving your ideas.
