Margao: Back home after a fairly successful brief spell away, a resurgent FC Goa will be eager to earn three points as they prepare to lock horns with FC Pune City in an Indian Super League (ISL) match here today.
If the resounding 4-1 win against Delhi Dynamos in the away match revived hopes of making it to the semi-finals, a goalless draw against Mumbai City FC in the last match ensured FC Goa remained in the seventh place with nine points.
Any more slip-ups from here on will further jeopardise their prospects.
FC Goa, coming into this match with four points from two matches, hold the psychological advantage over their rivals who have collected only two points from their last three matches. They also have the home crowd to back them.
If captain Robert Pires and Brazilian midfielder Andre Santos fire in tandem, FC Goa could avenge their away defeat to FC Pune City.
